The Holiday Swap | Maggie Knox
124 posts | 71 read | 2 reading | 25 to read
A feel-good, holiday-themed romantic comedy about identical twins who switch lives in the days leading up to Christmas--perfect for fans of Christina Lauren's In a Holidaze and Josie Silver's One Day in December. When chef Charlie Goodwin gets hit on the head on the L.A. set of her reality baking show, she loses a lot more than consciousness; she also loses her ability to taste and smell--both critical to her success as show judge. Meanwhile, Charlie's identical twin, Cass, is frantically trying to hold her own life together back in their quaint mountain hometown while running the family's bustling bakery and dealing with her ex, who won't get the memo that they're over. With only days until Christmas, a desperate Charlie asks Cass to do something they haven't done since they were kids: switch places. Looking for her own escape from reality, Cass agrees. But temporarily trading lives proves more complicated than they imagined, especially when rugged firefighter Jake Greenman and gorgeous physician's assistant Miguel Rodriguez are thrown into the mix. Will the twins' identity swap be a recipe for disaster, or does it have all the right ingredients for getting their lives back on track?

Twins decide to swap lives when one recieves a head injury that ruins her sense of taste and because she's a chef on a baking competition tv show she swaps lives with her sister that runs the family bakery, what ensues is a lot of confusion for themselves, friends, romantic interests ....and the reader

Bookishgal71 @LiteraryLyn It‘s definitely formulaic, but I feel like it‘s the right tone for a holiday read. Lighthearted, romantic and shallow. 1w

Cute, clean holiday read. It‘s like a Hallmark movie in book form. Twins switch places and careers for a bit. Cute.

GondorGirl This was a really cute book. It's not exactly a Christmas book (though it takes place during that season), so I don't think you'd need to wait until next December. 😁 2w

I‘m a sucker for any story about twins, and I would best describe this as reminiscent of a Hallmark Christmas movie, but not nearly as cheesy. It‘s perfect escapism for Christmastime. I liked it so much I passed it along to my mom. 4⭐️

The Holiday Swap was interesting enough, but more interesting at the start, as it was unevenly paced in the last 2/3 of the book. The novel would have benefited from some more time with a good editor. A decent light holiday read, but it is not likely to ever be a reread, at least by me. #BOTM

Setting up my TBR for 3 challenges I hope to work through this year: 2022 Audiobook Challenge, Mount TBR 2022, and Popsugar Reading Challenge 2022. I‘m currently reading The Holiday Swap and almost finished listening to Crochet and Cauldrons.

I pulled this from my Dec stack to enjoy as my final holiday read as I pack up my decor for another year. My audio hold came through, as well, so i could work and sit without missing a beat on the story. I can‘t resist an identical twin holiday swap story! It was Hallmarky and since Candence Cameron Bure has the identical twin movie there, I had her in my head the whole time.

Forgot to post this review earlier in the month. 'Twas excellent. Charming and cozy. If you're a fan of The Princess Switch movies, this was made for you. There may not be royalty, but there is so much baking goodness and twin swapping. My favorite parts were in the small town, very Gilmore Girls-esque. Just a sweet romance.

Also, I love these almond horns so much. 🤤

I loved this twin swapping romance. A bit unbelievable that no one can tell them apart, but all part of the fun. The love interests were swoon-worthy and the women were confident and strong characters. I enjoyed the baking show element and the small hometown setting. This one might become an annual reread...

This was cute, sickly sweet at the end to the point I kinda wanted to gag lol. There is a level of “c‘mon, that would never happen” you have to ignore but it‘s a romcom and I think we‘re mostly pretty good at doing that. I love books w food in them and I was definitely in this one more for the food than the romance.

This is just the light-hearted holiday read that I needed! Identical twins Charlie and Cass both are accomplished bakers- Charlie now as a host in the glamorous setting of an L.A. holiday cooking show competition and Cass running the family bakery a few hours north in Starlight Peak (surely a town that must be just a bit north of Sweet Valley!🤣). An accident leads to them swapping lives in the 12 days before Christmas and fun along the way!

Cute and fun and complicated! I really enjoyed how Cass was able to see how not okay Charlie's life in city is, and how strong Cass was. Sometimes we just need to switch things up (or swap things up) to discover new strengths and loves.

Day 24: Holiday Traditions

Today we have all of the gifts waiting for us under the Christmas tree. Our tradition is opening them up at midnight. Since my husband is now working night shift, we let the kids open up a gift right before he left for work. The rest we will do in the morning when he gets home 😊

Yay! I finished the #teambook! The Holiday Swap was cute and had me hooked, but there were some parts that irritated me (i.e. Why didn't they reveal the truth sooner? You do realize that not all Angelenos have surfing equipment?...) However, I still enjoy reading the mischief these sisters got themselves into. 3.5⭐

Saccharine sweet holiday rom-com, featuring identical twins, two good-looking guys, and a swap of lives that in some ways brought me to mind of The Parent Trap‘s antics. The reader finds out quite early the reason for the swap, and I think the book lost points for me because the reasoning seemed medically dangerous. A lot of “I‘m ruining everything” moments also had me roll my eyes a bit.

But, it‘s light and fluffy and a fast read.

Yes, I also read this book this month 😂 A soft pick here but I can't quite put my finger on why. I think maybe because it felt a little ridiculous that both twins had been willing to put up with so much from obnoxious men in their lives, especially all the inappropriate workplace touching...like I would have given that dude a bloody nose on day two, and putting up with him felt out of character for how Charlie is presented. Same with Brett, he⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) wasn't as bad, but Cass asked Charlie to keep reminding Brett that the relationship was over, but instead Charlie kept getting all flustered and mumbly and it was SO annoying to me. I was mostly confused because Cass kept acting like Charlie is the confident, no-nonsense one, but Cass is actually the one who did the most to change the life situations of both twins for the better.

Anyway, I'm complaining disproportionately 😂 I actually ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) really enjoyed this one and found it perfectly entertaining, it's just not one I see myself reading year after year.

That said, would anyone in the US like this one? I'd be happy to mail it to a new home!!
