Home for the Holidays by Heather Vogel Frederick

Mother-Daughter Book Club #6

This holiday season, the Mother-Daughter Book Club is reading the Betsy-Tacy books. The girls and their families are scattered during the holidays. The promise of a New Year's Eve meeting and a Secret Santa gift exchange over the holidays keep the girls together in spirit if not person.

What I thought: Though Becca is probably not my favorite character, I was glad to see she finally got her own chapters. Megan and Becca's shopping trip on Black Friday was one of my favorite parts of the book. The Secret Santa mix-up was hilarious. A very enjoyable read, Home for the Holidays made me want to try to read the Betsy-Tacy books again.
