Rating: 4 Stars ~ Loved

There’s something about being in Twilight, Texas during the holidays!

Lori Wilde has a knack for writing delightful small town romances. A year ago I read my very first Twilight, Texas novel, which was Christmas at Twilight. I absolutely adored that book, and I knew that I wanted to be swept back to this place again this year. I’ll Be Home for Christmas turned out to be exactly what I wanted in a holiday read.

Wilde’s Twilight, Texas series is written in a way that you can jump right in anywhere and feel welcomed and right at home. There’s something special about being in Twilight, Texas during the holidays. The town really loves to celebrate this holiday in spectacular fashion.

The way Gabi Preston ends up in Twilight, TX is very much like what happens in that movie The Holiday. Gabi met Joe’s sister online, and the two temporarily swap homes. The reason Gabi chooses to getaway to Joe’s hometown is heartbreaking. Once she’s in Twilight, she meets Joe and immediately gets pulled into whatever the town has going on during the holidays. A couple of specially placed mistletoe and love definitely fills the air. Gabi and Joe’s story warmed my heart so much. Joe is such a stand-up kind of guy and endearingly charming! He’s a Christmas tree farmer with a huge heart and falls hard for the city girl. If you’re looking for a fun holiday small town romance, I don’t think you can go wrong with I’ll Be Home for Christmas to keep you in a festive mood. The holiday quotes at the start of each chapter are like chocolate sprinkles on top of the whipped cream of your mug of hot cocoa…little perfect touches that make the holiday sweet.

Audiobook Review
It was my first time listening to C.J. Critt. It took me a while to get used to her voice for Joe. I think I would rather have preferred a deeper voice for him, but overall I thought her narration of I’ll Be Home for Christmas was great and made for a festive experience. Critt has recorded so many books that I wouldn’t hesitate to try another narration of hers again.
