Hello! I am super excited to announce #MGR is a part of the 2020 Holiday Blog Tour by Harlequin Trade Publishing. A WEDDING IN DECEMBER is a lovely, funny story about a young woman who gets engaged at Thanksgiving and is planning a Christmas Eve wedding — but with a side of family drama. This post does not contain spoilers.
I was fortunate to receive a copy from Harlequin. Here is the summary and shortened review.
This funny, charming and heartwarming new Christmas novel is USA TODAY bestselling author Sarah Morgan at her festive best!
In the snowy perfection of Aspen, the White family gathers for youngest daughter Rosie’s whirlwind Christmas wedding. First to arrive are the bride’s parents, Maggie and Nick. Their daughter’s marriage is a milestone they are determined to celebrate wholeheartedly, but they are hiding a huge secret of their own: they are on the brink of divorce. After living apart for the last six months, the last thing they need is to be trapped together in an irresistibly romantic winter wonderland.
Rosie’s older sister, Katie, is also dreading the wedding. Worried that impulsive, sweet-hearted Rosie is making a mistake, Katie is determined to save her sister from herself! If only the irritatingly good-looking best man, Jordan, would stop interfering with her plans…
Bride-to-be Rosie loves her fiancé but is having serious second thoughts. Except everyone has arrived—how can she tell them she’s not sure? As the big day gets closer, and emotions run even higher, this is one White family Christmas none of them will ever forget!
Author Bio: USA Today bestselling author Sarah Morgan writes hot, happy, contemporary romance and women’s fiction, and her trademark humor and sensuality have gained her fans across the globe. Described as “a magician with words” by RT Book Reviews, she has sold more than eleven million copies of her books. She was nominated three years in succession for the prestigious RITA® Award from the Romance Writers of America and won the award three times: once in 2012 for Doukakis’s Apprentice, in 2013 for A Night of No Return and in 2017 for Miracle on 5th Avenue. She also won the RT Reviewers’ Choice Award in 2012 and has made numerous appearances in their Top Pick slot. As a child, Sarah dreamed of being a writer, and although she took a few interesting detours along the way, she is now living that dream. Sarah lives near London, England, with her husband and children, and when she isn’t reading or writing, she loves being outdoors, preferably on vacation so she can forget the house needs tidying.

Why I was interested: Holiday books are really fun and there should be so much more of them. I chose A WEDDING IN DECEMBER because I have always loved the idea of exchanging vows around Christmas time: it’s sweet, romantic, and there are so many stars to spot thanks to the longer, colder nights. I also loved that our main character, Rosie, and her family are from Oxford which is one of my favorite cities.
Judge a book by it’s cover: This cover is so lovely! This color scheme is one of my favorites and it looks so magical and peaceful. I also couldn’t help but love Rosie’s outfit of the light tulle skirt and the white sweater with the beautiful sky above her. And on the physical copy, there are sparkles!
What to expect: This story follows the bride Rosie, her sister Kate, and their mom Maggie as they travel from Oxford to Aspen for Rosie’s wedding. While each woman has her own hopes and fears, there are some really funny and heartfelt moments.
Why you should pick this book up: If you are looking for a well-rounded romance for readers between the ages of 20 and 50, this book is for you. Fall in love with the characters, the snow, and the holidays with this story.
