The Parent Trap with a hint of baking and a little romance on the side is the best way that I can summarize The Holiday Swap by Maggie Knox.
The Holiday Swap is about twins Cass and Charlie. Cass runs her family’s bakery in their small town, while Charlie is the host of a baking show in Los Angeles. When a concussion causes Charlie to lose her sense of taste and smell, she calls in her sister Cass to help her out. The two switch places. Throughout the course of the book, the two find romance and pull of the switch. Of course, it comes with some comical hitches as the sisters navigate life as the other.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I have been on a kick of reading nothing but Christmas novels, and this is definitely one of my favorites that I have picked up so far this season. Of course, this novel is light and fluffy. But, when you are reading one of these novels, that’s what you already know what you’re in for. I loved the romances, I loved the sisterly bonds, and I loved the baking element of it. It was entertaining and held my interest from start to finish.
This book was my Book of the Month pick for the month of December, but I am going to be honest. Even if it wasn’t, I would have picked it up as well. So, if you’re trying to get one festive read in before 2022, I highly recommend this one.
