New Release Review! HOME FOR CHRISTMAS by Tracey Alvarez (Stewart Island #9)

Home For Christmas
by Tracey Alvarez


They’re dreaming of a White Christmas…

Carly Gatlin can’t wait to take her fiancé to Colorado for a snuggly snow-filled Christmas, only a freakish summer storm sweeps in disabling everyone’s plans. Still, with holiday surprises in store and even a secret admirer for Stewart Island’s elderly notorious matchmaker, the happy couples of Oban might not mind being home for Christmas after all.

WARNING: If you’re new to the Stewart Island series, this holiday novella isn’t the book to start with. All your past favorite couples join in the seasonal craziness—and if you haven’t read the earlier Stewart Island books it’ll just be crazy-confusing.



A feel-good holiday novella!

Home for Christmas is a fun read that will get you all caught up on what your favorite couples have been up to and put you in the holiday mood. The synopsis is right–it’s definitely not the Stewart Island book to start with; you really need to know the couples going in–but if you do, you’ll be as comfortable with this read as going home for Christmas makes you feel (without the awkward family moments that often brings). Mrs. T, octogenarian and island matchmaker, even gets her own secret admirer here, giving the book an air of mystery and an extra dash of romance.

It’s just the thing to tide us over until the next full-length series book is released!
