Book Review of
The best way to describe Faking Christmas by Kerry Winfrey is a Hallmark Christmas movie in book form, except it is slightly more PG than most Hallmark movies. And saying a book is like a Hallmark movie is not bad. Sometimes you just need a light and fluffy fun read. This book is exactly that.
Someone said this book was inspired by the classic Christmas movie Christmas In Connecticut. I love that movie so as soon as I heard that, I knew I had to read it.
It is not quite the same as the movie, but I can see how it might have inspired it.
Laurel and Holly are twins who were born on Christmas day. They might be twins, but they are total opposites.
Holly lives on a farm with her husband and kids. She loves cooking, farming, and wood crafting.
Laurel on the other hand has had multiple jobs and relationships gone bad. She desperately needs and wants her current job. So she pretends that her sister’s life is actually her life. Which isn’t quite as easy as it sounds.
The story is the pretty typical enemies-to-lovers plot, but it was the perfect quick and easy read for me after finishing the Elon Musk biography.
