Thank you to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to participate in the blog tour for Home for Christmas by Camilla Isley, one of my favourite authors.
Home for Christmas
Would you share a bed with your enemy to save Christmas?
Down with a bad case of writer’s block, Riven has escaped to a mountain cabin for a prolonged writing retreat. The last thing he needs this Christmas is for his family to invade his sanctuary away from LA. What he needs even less is for a family of strangers as large and boisterous as his own to also be stuck in the same house after a double-booking disaster.
Especially when he ends up having to share a bunk bed with Wendy—a gorgeous, feisty New Yorker who quickly learns how to get under his skin.
Sharing a room with her is sweet torture and Riven isn’t even sure what he dreads more: that every passing day brings them closer to saying goodbye or that they have yet another night to spend together…
It’s never too late or too early for a good Christmas romcom, especially when it comes from one of my favourite authors- Camilla Isley! Sweet and sassy protagonists, great, easy-to-read writing style, and plenty of lovely Christmas spirit, what’s more can a girl ask for?
If you’re a fan of forced cloze proximity and enemies-to-lovers tropes, you’ll love this one. Riven Clark is going through a messy divorce, but, no, no, he isn’t hiding from his family in a snow cabin in a ski resort in Utah. He is desperately trying to meet a deadline for his latest adventure book. Alas! words don’t come easy…
Wendy Nichols is a successful playwright who just can’t get it right with any of her relationships. She is gorgeous, smart, loyal, and yet, her investment banker boyfriend wouldn’t even call her back, let alone agree to spend the Christmas week with her family…in a cabin in a ski resort in Utah. Which just happens to be doublebooked.
If you’ve read In a Holidaze, you know there will be snow angels and mistletoe kisses, but this time the families sharing the cabin aren’t lifelong friends, they are total strangers. So can you blame Riven for being a bit put out about having to share his sanctuary with fifteen other people? Can you blame Wendy for playing a few pranks on him? oh, wait a second, pranks come from both sides…
I love Camilla’s sense of humour and romantic spirit. Yes, sometimes love surprises you, but more often than not, you have to be ready for it, ready to appreciate the other person beyond their good looks or fame, ready for commitment beyond a few days’ fun. I have to say I was on the side of one of the characters, if only they communicated their reasons a bit better.
Looking for a quick, entertaining, clean romance? Home for Christmas is waiting for you….
