Reviewing The Holiday Swap
This was a cute holiday romance that was the epitome of a Hallmark movie. With identical twins, Charlie and Cass switching places to help one another out, mishaps are sure to ensue.
There is a small town element that I absolutely spoke to my small town holiday romance loving ways and I really enjoyed how the ending wrapped up the various storylines and brought everyone together.
Also, the amazing baked goods that were described in the story made me crave them and I was disappointed there weren’t any recipes at the end of the book so that I could try some out for myself!
Overall, a great light hearted and quick read for the holidays.

When chef Charlie Goodwin gets hit on the head on the L.A. set of her reality baking show, she loses a lot more than consciousness; she also loses her ability to taste and smell--both critical to her success as show judge. Meanwhile, Charlie's identical twin, Cass, is frantically trying to hold her own life together back in their quaint mountain hometown while running the family's bustling bakery and dealing with her ex, who won't get the memo that they're over.
With only days until Christmas, a desperate Charlie asks Cass to do something they haven't done since they were kids: switch places. Looking for her own escape from reality, Cass agrees. But temporarily trading lives proves more complicated than they imagined, especially when rugged firefighter Jake Greenman and gorgeous physician's assistant Miguel Rodriguez are thrown into the mix. Will the twins' identity swap be a recipe for disaster, or does it have all the right ingredients for getting their lives back on track?
