The Christmas Escape by Sarah Morgan


Today I am sharing my review for The Christmas Escape by Sarah Morgan as part of her blog tour for her new fabulously festive novel.

It was supposed to be Christy Sullivan’s perfect Christmas escape – a dream 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, Seb. Her solution? Alix, along with Seb’s oldest friend, Zac, can take Christy’s daughter on the planned Lapland trip, and they will all reunite there for Christmas Day. After all, what are friends for?

There’s nothing Alix won’t do for Christy, but Christy’s plan to save Christmas is testing their friendship. Especially as Alix and Zac have a difficult history of their own.

As long-held secrets unravel, and unexpected romance shines under the Northern Lights, can Christy and Alix find the courage to fight for the relationships they really want? And could this Christmas escape save the precious gift of each other’s friendship?

I love a festive novel that makes me feel all fuzzy with excitement and this is just the feeling I got when reading Sarah Morgan’s new book The Christmas Escape which is set in such an idyllic location in Sweden with snow, husky rides and to top it all the dazzling allure of the Northern Lights which is something I have always been so desperate to see for myself and this book has just made me yearn for that experience even more!

We can always rely on Sarah Morgan to introduce us to three strong female characters, this seems to be her signature thing and she aces it every time. Christmas is Christy’s favourite time of year and this year is going to be extra special as she will be spending it in Sweden in the perfect festive setting and she can’t wait for her daughter Holly to have a magical time but there are nerves bubbling as she will be meeting her rebel auntie Robyn for the first time.

When Christy uncovers a hidden secret kept by husband Seb she wants to get to the bottom of it and so asks best friend Alix to go on the planned trip taking care of Holly and she would join them a few days later.

Alix senses that her best friend is keeping things from her but she would do anything to help her best friend even if that means sharing a romantic log cabin with a young child and a man she has been successfully keeping her distance from for a long time!

This is perfect festive reading with engaging characters, wintery chills that will be warmed with the spark of romance and the heat of conflict whilst wrapping you up in the magical setting of snow and auroras. Friendships and relationships are put to the test and secrets are uncovered new and old which all add depth and intrigue to this storyline. This is another fabulously festive read by Sarah Morgan she has ticked all the boxes once again.
