A sweet happily ever after. I love Lila. She makes the whole novel. Abby her mom is lovely, self-sufficient and insecure because of her childhood, Brady is a man who loves giving. The three come together in a holiday tale. Brady's family is a fabulous bunch with the exception of the Dad. I must confess I'm a little distressed by Brady and his Dad's relationship. I was somewhat appeased that it is improving, but it seems almost toxic.
While I like the premise of the story, I found it a little slo A sweet happily ever after. While I like the premise of the story, I found it a little slow for me. I like this enough to be interested in what happens to the family in the future. Stay tuned for the rest of the family's adventures. Rating: 3.

Nov 27, Patty Champion rated it it was amazing. I enjoyed this book, but all threw the book i kept thinking that i has visited these people before, The first book in the series was written a year ago. I like the Buchanons and hope that it is not another year before the next book comes out. Abby is very independent and Brady just wants to help her. Lila is disabled and she steals the book.
