Thanks to the publisher & Netgalley for the complimentary e-ARC. All opinions provided are my own.
Did I read my first December romance in August? Did this book make me want to start celebrating the Winter Soltice? Yes & yes.
Jenny Bayliss’ A December to Remember is a story of sisterhood & community & it all happens when the father of three distant sisters dies & his will stipulates that they spend time together doing two things before they can secure their inheritance.
Focusing on sisterhood, this book shows how people can come back together & how vulnerability is a big part of what allows that to happen.
Each sister also has a romantic relationship they’re working through / starting in the book.
This book addresses quite a lot of serious topics & throughout it all is the community of Rowan Thorp which the sisters are becoming more enmeshed in. The town is adorable, the antiques store is some place I’d like to visit & I love how inclusive it is. That’s maybe my favorite part of the book—watching the various residents’ contributions to their town & to the winter Soltice.
I’d recommend this to anyone wanting a sweet story of sisters coming back together & allowing others in, of relationships that they’re choosing to make stronger.
