Easy read, but hard to believe the quick turnaround in behaviour of Ivy and Daniel.

Ivy has come to from an eight year bender and is newly alive to the joys of the season.
"“In here,” she said, and led him to the den. This year, she was not going to place her tree in the formal living room, as she found the room lacking in warmth and a bit cold ."
Clearly the reader understands that Ivy's oddly redundant lapses and worries about being seen in last year's fashions are merely symptomatic of an overly stressed liver and will root for her full recovery.
Holly's Dad, alternately Beast and Wicked Stepmother, has spent eight years depriving eleven year old Holly of emotional support and doling out arbitrary punishments. And yet, in her Cinderella-like heart, Holly knows he is a Prince suffering hormonal ennui and will someday snap out of it.
Will Holly make it to the ball, er, Christmas Musical?

It was a good easy read. Not up to Fern Michaels twisting plots, but a quick easy read. The first comment had it right - had to believe that things could turn around so quickly for someone so badly hurt.

Typical Fern Michaels story - but was somewhat unbelievable in sections. Ivy spent 8 years grieving her family spending her time alone and drinking most of the time,not leaving her home for much of anything. However it is supposed to be believed that she put all of that behind her in two days. Then the same is what happens to Holly and her father - 8 years of behavior is redeemed in two days. Has it nice parts if you just take it for a pleasant afternoon holiday read.
