Published October 31st 2019 by HQN Books

From the USA Today bestselling author of The Christmas Sisters comes this funny, charming and heartwarming all new original Christmas novel. This is Sarah Morgan at her festive best!

In the snowy perfection of Aspen, the White family gathers for youngest daughter Rosie’s whirlwind Christmas wedding. First to arrive are the bride’s parents, Maggie and Nick. Their daughter’s marriage is a milestone they are determined to celebrate wholeheartedly, but they are hiding a huge secret of their own: they are on the brink of divorce. After living apart for the last six months, the last thing they need is to be trapped together in an irresistibly romantic winter wonderland.

Rosie’s older sister, Katie, is also dreading the wedding. Worried that impulsive, sweet-hearted Rosie is making a mistake, Katie is determined to save her sister from herself! If only the irritatingly good-looking best man, Jordan, would stop interfering with her plans…

Bride-to-be Rosie loves her fiancĂ© but is having serious second thoughts. Except everyone has arrived—how can she tell them she’s not sure? As the big day gets closer, and emotions run even higher, this is one White family Christmas none of them will ever forget!

5 Stars
Maggie is the mother of two charming, smart daughters whom she misses terribly. She spends all year looking forward to spending Christmas at the family's cottage in the UK, especially this year when life has kept them apart and has Maggie and her husband keeping a secret. Her youngest, Rosie, is known to be impulsive, but to request the entire to family to come to Colorado for her wedding with two weeks notice is more than Maggie can handle. Terrified of flying and the truth, Maggie's husband manages to get her aboard a plane for the holidays, where they'll join their eldest, Katie. Katie, too, is harboring a secret, and even worse, isn't really there to attend the wedding, but to ruin it. This Christmas isn't turning out like a White Family Christmas at all, but at least there will be snow.

Funny, heartwarming, and romantic, A Wedding in December is a truly wonderful family-focused read by Sarah Morgan. Christmas is just the backdrop to this cozy read, featuring snowmobile trips, sled dogs, family bickering, and three women who just don't know how to handle their secrets or their emotions. I loved the entire White family, I could relate with Maggie, Katie, and Rosie as they tried to tackle the trip. There's also some fantastic secondary characters that brought the story to life, I could hear the characters unique voices in the dialogue. Each of the women's perspectives told their own story, each tied together perfectly to make a cohesive entertaining book.

A Wedding in December was just the read I needed and I am sure it will be one I revisit as the holidays draw closer. Sarah Morgan gives readers a Hallmark Movie-like read, without the unbelievable plot lines and the overwhelming amount of cheer. I absolutely adored this family-themed novel.
