Lorraine AAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Wonderful Holiday Love StoryNovember 7, 2016Lorraine AAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Sarah Price writes a wonderful love story to share with us this holiday season. Alejandro, a Cuban heartthrob, and his Amish wife Amanda share a deep love for each other and their children.
Alejandro grants his wife her Christmas wish which, you can tell by the title, is spending Christmas with her family. Of course, that means breaking the long standing Diaz holiday tradition. Amanda is sure her mother-in-law isnt going to look too kindly on that.
Pick up a copy of this book and, once you start reading, you wont want to put it down. Youll enjoy sharing Christmas with the two very different culture families.
I was given this book by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review
Sarah OCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Sometimes coming home is all you needOctober 16, 2016Sarah OCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Alejandro and Amanda are back. They have been at it for 9 years and are getting ready to close out the year and have so much going on. Amanda wishes she can get her family to disconnect from the world and reconnect as a family. When she gets a letter from her mom to please come home for christmas she wonders if that can happen and if maybe she can get her family to reconnect. But it seems like there are a few hurdles to cross before that all can happen. Can she and Alejandro work together to make it happen or will it be another christmas in Miami?
Sarah did not disappoint with this book at all. I really enjoyed this book and I have to say out of all the Plain series books this one hands down is my favorite. This one focused on family and finding the pieces of yourself that you can only find by going "home". This book is not just about christmas but its about the true mean of it and whats really important in life. In some of the Plain series I was not a fan of Alejandro in fact I felt in some case he was jerk and I wanted to smack him, however in this book that totally change and I fell in love with who he had become and how much growth he made. I absolutely loved the kids in this book, Sarah did an amazing job at making their little personality shine through especially little Nicolas, man him and Sofia are just spit fires.
If you are looking for a good clean read with a fun group of characters then this book is for you and you will not regret grabbing it.
sgreene015 Stars Out Of 5Great Christmas ReadOctober 2, 2016sgreene01Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the 6th book in this series. I have read all of them and have come to love the characters Amanda, who was raised Amish, and her Cuban husband, Alejandro Diaz, a world famous celebrity singer.
Throughout the series, we have seen how Alejandros career has affected Amandas life in such a dramatic way since her life now is so completely different from her Amish upbringing.
As the holidays approach, it is a very busy time in their lives. Alejandro has many concert obligations. Amanda, along with being a mother to 3 children, has many obligations for various activities associated with being Alejandros wife. Once their obligations are fulfilled, they look forward the short amount of time they can have together as a family away from their busy schedule. Amanda receives a letter from her mother in Pennsylvania, asking if they can come home for Christmas. It has been four years since Amanda has returned home but doesnt see how they could manage the trip with the upcoming concerts on her husbands schedule. He, however, is able to work out details so they can go to Pennsylvania for Christmas.
While there, Amanda and Alejandro realize that their children are missing so much of being able to just be a child because of his fame. Security guards must always accompany them everywhere. They cant even go outside to play without security because of the many fans who always follow them everywhere. On the farm, the children are able to be free to be outside, ride sleds, milk cows, and really get acquainted with Amandas side of the family and their ways.
Is there a chance that this celebrity family from Miami can learn to love the plain life?
Would they be able to change their way of life, yet, Alejandro continue to have his career, or is it time for him to spend time with the family? What will the future hold?
I sincerely hope there might be more books to come in this series.
I would recommend this book and the entire series. I was given a copy of this book by the publisher, Waterfall Press, for my unbiased opinion.
