Adult Book Review: The Holiday Swap

Author: Maggie Knox
Reviewed by Chloe Fuksa, Putnam Six Bookstore

The Holiday Swap is the debut collaboration from authors Karma Brown and Marissa Stapley, and it is the perfect romantic comedy for the month of December. If you’re wanting a Hallmark movie in book form, this will do the trick. Between the picturesque town blanketed in snow, the descriptions of freshly baked goods, and the cute romances, this book can certainly take you away.

Cass Goodwin runs her family’s long-time bakery in a small mountain town, while her identical twin, Charlie Goodwin, is a co-host of a popular baking show in Los Angeles. When Charlie sustains a concussion though and loses her sense of taste and smell, the twins decide to swap places. Cass can make recipes for the show and judge the contestants, and Charlie can still make the bakery recipes since she knows them by heart. The twins make all sorts of mistakes in their reversed roles, and when they both start falling in love with guys, their situations grow even more complicated. But through it all, they also learn new things about themselves and escape the ruts they are in.

This book is a delightful, feel-good read. Some of the scenarios aren’t exactly believable, but the secondary characters are wonderful throughout and the final chapters are a warm, cozy conclusion. This book will certainly get you into the holiday spirit – and make you want to bake endless gingerbread cookies and lemon squares!
