Eloise, a self-confessed Christmas obsessive, can’t wait for the big day. Devoted to her Michael Bublé playlist, she’s organizing the school nativity play and even her gorgeous Grinch of a neighbor, James, can’t get her down.
Her workaholic twin sister, Cara, on the other hand, plans to work over the holiday – and figure out what secrets her seemingly-perfect boyfriend George might be keeping from her.
The sisters used to be close but since Cara moved to London, everything’s been different. Only, Eloise isn’t giving up just yet, and with a white Christmas on the cards, Cara can’t fail to be moved by the magic of the season … can she?

My Rating: 3 stars
IT WON’T BE CHRISTMAS WITHOUT YOU brings us the story of twin sisters Eloise and Cara who are total opposites in personality. Each has differing tensions both personal and work-related this holiday season as we follow them through the days leading up to Christmas. I read Christmas Romance for the season and the love stories combining my favorite season and reading choices. I simply didn’t feel the magic of Christmas here. I did feel a lot of tensions that felt, to me, unresolved by the ending. I think I have to admit that this story simply wasn’t for me, although I’m certain there is an audience that will love Cara and Eloise.
I liked their story, I wish I could have loved it but, for me, this was a dual point of view story that was good but didn’t capture my emotions. If you loved Ms. Reekles’ THE KISSING BOOTH then you may want to give this Christmas story a try.
*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
