Book Review: Maybe This Christmas, by Sarah Morgan

Could this be the Christmas her dreams of a happy-ever-after finally come true?

This winter, ex-skiing champion, reformed heartbreaker and single dad Tyler O’Neil has only one mission—making sure his daughter, Jess, has the best Christmas ever. The fact that his best friend, Brenna, is also temporarily moving into his chalet at the overbooked Snow Crystal resort is a delicious distraction he’s simply going to have to ignore. Theirs is the one relationship he’s never ruined, and he’s not about to start now.

Ski pro Brenna Daniels knows all about the perils of unrequited love—she’s been in love with Tyler for years. But living with him is absolute torture…how can she concentrate on being his friend when he’s sleeping in the room next door? Then when Tyler kisses Brenna, suddenly the relationship she’s always dreamed of feels so close she could almost touch it. Could this be the Christmas her dreams of a happy-ever-after finally come true?

Thank you to Harlequin UK for approving me for a review copy via NetGalley.

This was the first book I’ve read by Sarah Morgan, and I will definitely be getting the previous 2 books in the Snow Crystal Trilogy. While this reads perfectly well as a stand alone, I imagine it’s even better to have read them in order – I’ve linked to all 3 at the bottom of the page.

This was a gorgeously cosy Christmas book, and I fell in love with the characters almost instantly. Every single character throughout the book is so well developed and portrayed, you really felt like you knew everyone at Snow Crystal – like you were a part of it yourself. The book was quite slow moving for the first half, but I did enjoy how well the back story and other characters were built, and this made up for it.

Brenna and Tyler’s back story is so sweet, having been friends since childhood, but so frustrating as I wanted to just bash their heads together all those years a go, and shout at them that they were perfect for each other! There’s so much angst between them and the struggle of having to live in the same house is built really well.

I particularly loved Tyler’s daughter, Jess, and the dynamics she added to the story with her relationships between Tyler, her mother and Brenna adds great depth to the characters all round.

It was a wonderfully heart-warming and lovely Christmas book, and I am now looking forward to reading the other books in the Snow Crystal Trilogy soon!
