#BookReview Sarah Morgan - The Christmas Escape

The blurb.
It was supposed to be Christy Sullivan’s perfect Christmas getaway—a trip to Lapland with her family and best friend, Alix. But facing a make-or-break marriage crisis, Christy desperately needs time alone with her husband. Her solution? Alix can take Christy’s little daughter to Lapland, and they will reunite there for Christmas Day. It’s a big ask, but what else are friends for?

There’s nothing Alix won’t do for Christy. But Christy’s request to save Christmas is giving Alix sleepless nights. She knows something is wrong, but for the first time ever, Christy isn’t talking. And even the Arctic temperatures in Lapland aren’t enough to dampen the seriously inconvenient sizzle Alix is developing for Zac, a fellow guest and nemesis from her past.

As secrets unravel and unexpected romance shines under the northern lights, can Christy and Alix’s Christmas escape give them the courage to fight for the relationships they really want, and save the precious gift of each other’s friendship?

My review.

A Winter Wonderland novel that transports you to stunning, snowy Lapland, all the while reminding you what the Christmas season is all about. ‘The Christmas Escape’ doesn’t just bring you a Christmas love story. It dives into friendships, family ties and drama, a marriage, parenthood,… It gives you so much more than anticipated. I wasn’t sure at first where this story was going, but suddenly I found myself, past midnight with ice cold hands, so invested into these characters and their unfolding relationships that I couldn’t stop reading. Only after finishing it, I realised I felt like I had 1. gone through a very healing therapy session, 2. attended marriage counselling and 3. that I was most moved by the friendships in this book. A gorgeous, surprisingly moving Christmas read.
