Christmas is coming and best friends Chloe, Jules, and Lucy are needing change… so swapping homes for the holidays could be the perfect present for all of them!
Australian Chloe spends her Christmas in a sleepy village in Oxfordshire, England. She is totally star-struck when she discovers who lives across the road.
Lucy, who has jetted off to snowy Colorado for her dream-come-true white Christmas, is taken into the fold of Jules’s loud and brash family, discovering more about herself in a few short days than she has in years.
And Jules leaves the cold climes of Colorado to spend her Christmas on a beach with Chloe’s friends in Melbourne, finding that time away is just what she needed.
The only thing better than one Christmas romance is three, and this wonderful festive novel is perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan, Holly Martin and Karen Swan.

I looooved this book so much! I fell in love with not one, not two, but THREE relationships!!
The characters! I loved getting to know the three main women in this book, Chloe, Lucy, and Jules, and the incredibly wonderful men they meet. While the storyline was fun and humorous, it was the characters that made this book a true delight.
The May Ladies (Chloe, Lucy, and Jules) have such a strong relationship, even after 22 years, which I really admired. I mean, they trusted each other enough to switch families and homes for the holidays which turned out great for them. As well, they still had frequent calls and video chats to keep in touch. Their friendship is what even made this book possible in the first place. I just really loved these characters.
As well, it was so fun getting to experience Christmas in three different countries with different traditions, and families, and romances. We get to go on lots of different adventures with these characters which makes this book so much fun. They each get caught in awkward situations, unplanned activities, and so forth which just adds to this book.
There are just enough cliche moments to make this the perfect holiday romance novel while still adding in new themes and elements that kept me on my toes. If I haven’t convinced you to read this book yet, let this last statement be my final argument. If you’re looking to escape to three different Christmas locations with three lovable characters, check out this book!
