Christmas Ever After - by Sarah Morgan

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Skylar Tempest has never understood Alec Hunter’s appeal. So what if he’s a world-renowned historian? He’s also cynical, aloof and determined to think the worst of her. So when a twist of fate finds her spending the lead-up to Christmas with Alec and his family, she’s not expecting the season to be either merry or bright.

Alec has learned the hard way not to trust beautiful women—and Skylar is the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. But as he watches her throw herself into his family’s festive chaos, Alec realises there is far more to this blonde bombshell than meets the eye.

With Christmas around the corner, Alec and Skylar return to Puffin Island, a tentative bond forged between them. Neither intends to fall in love but as the nights become darker, and the fire between them grows hotter, could this be the chance for Alec and Skylar to find their own happy ending?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

The last story of the Puffin Island series and I couldn’t have been more excited. After following both Emily and Brittany’s journey to love and happiness, I was curious to see what Sarah had in store for Skylar.

When the book starts we are in London. Skylar is a jewellery designer and has an exhibition in London. The jewellery is connected to emotions for her and that was great to read about. When everything goes wrong with her boyfriend Richard, Alec comes to Skylar’s rescue and they end up spending time at his family’s place, because he doesn’t want to leave her alone. The way her cares for her and is there for her is just adorable. They never liked each other, but now they are forced to spend time together. I felt like they were getting to know each other on a different level and in several ways. The chemistry is definitely there, even if they try to deny it.
One thing leads to another and …

Also back on Puffin Island that doesn’t change. She is even staying with him. I loved how the six friends all got together again. And there was definitely enough for them to talk about. They are a wonderful group of friends and Christmas is the perfect setting for them to be together and enjoy life. All in their own ways of course and with Skylar unsure about her feelings it all gets a bit dramatic, but very very interesting. Is there a way for Alec and Skylar to find happiness together?!

This wonderful novel will make you want to curl up on the sofa with a hot chocolate. The descriptions of scenes and places were beautiful and authentic, I felt like being there with the characters. The ending of the story is adorable and sweet. I’m actually sad that this is the end of the Puffin Island Series, but I have to say the ending is perfect! And Sarah Morgan has once again shown that she is an incredibly talented author.


My possible cast:

Skylar: Jennifer Morrison

Alec: Colin O'Donoghue
