The Holiday Swap | Maggie Knox
post image
Pickpick

@SeaToSkyes said it was a Hallmarkish story and this is the most accurate description of this cheesy, predictable story. I thought it was a little over the top that twins could trade places as adults and pull it off. But it is fiction! If you can get past this then you will probably enjoy this book. 3.5⭐ #WinterGames2021 @StayCurious #TeamGameSleighers

keys_on_fire Are their names Elizabeth and Jessica? 😉 7h
SeaToSkyes Yes! The switching as adults was my other issue! It's one thing when Mary-Kate and Ashley did it as cute little kids 😂 7h

This was a surprise. I reread this book and discovered I liked it better the second time. I think the first time I was more Interested in the story. This time I got involved with the characters and that made all the difference. 4⭐ #WinterGames2021 @StayCurious #TeamGameSleighers

This story was a nice break from all the Christmas books I have been reading. The story was compelling and the characters were well done. I like it when the author makes sure the characters fit with the plot. It was paced nicely also. 4⭐
