I'll Be Home for Christmas by Lori Wilde is a delightfully charming holiday romance. This seventh installment in the popular Twilight, Texas series is another heartwarming love story that old and new fans are going to love.

A startling realization about her career path is the impetus behind Gabi Preston's decision to swap houses with an on line friend. Gabi wants to experience the picture perfect Christmas and the picturesque town of Twilight, Texas is just the place to celebrate the upcoming holiday. Gabi needs a little distance from her über successful and career oriented parents before breaking the news that she is not finishing her degree. After years of blending into the background and putting others' needs ahead of her own, she is also hoping to discover her true authentic self while she tries to decide what she wants out of life. Gabi is a little ill prepared for the rather rustic living arrangements awaiting her but luckily, sexy Joe Cheek is close by to teach her all she needs to know about life in the country.

Gabi is a little reserved and quiet but she is also very kind and quite compassionate. She does not like to rock the boat and she always does what is expected of her. She loves her parents but they are not very close and while she does not want to upset them, Gabi knows it is time for her to decide her future based on her desires not theirs. She quickly begins to make friends in Twilight and as she takes over her fellow swapper's volunteer duties, Gabi begins to get a sense of what she wants for herself both professionally and personally.

Joe has lived an interesting and eclectic life as he travels from place to place working different jobs. Despite his wanderlust, he is close to his family and after his grandfather's accident, Joe drops everything to return to Twilight to run the family Christmas tree farm. He has a bit of a bad boy past but he is caring and loyal to his friends and family. Although he is quite happy working the farm, Joe is not sure that he is ready to settle down and stay in one place. As circumstances change with his family, Joe is forced to take a close look at his lifestyle as he tries to decide if it finally time to put down roots.

Both Joe and Gabi are instantly attracted to one another, but since her stay in Twilight is temporary, they are hesitant to act on their desire. Once they decide to indulge in a no strings fling, complications arise when Joe's past collides with his present and Gabi becomes aware of his reputation when it comes to the ladies in town. Gabi's impending departure is always in the forefront of both of their minds and although their feelings for one another begin to deepen, she still plans on leaving. Once she deals with the unresolved issues from her past, will Gabi decide to follow her heart?

I'll Be Home for Christmas by Lori Wilde is a sweet yet sensual romance. The plot is a little predictable at times but there are enough unexpected twists that the storyline remains fresh and engaging. The cast of characters is appealing and easy to like. The romance between Joe and Gabi is an absolute joy to watch unfold and although there are obstacles in their way, they manage to figure out how to make their relationship work. This beautiful holiday story is sure to be a hit with old and new readers of the Twilight, Texas series and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys small town contemporary romances. ( )

I'll Be Home for Christmas is an ideal edition to Ms. Wilde's Twilight series. The perfect gift to the one's we love. I really loved this story. Joe's determination to prove Gabi that in him she has found her home was adorable. I always know that I have found a great author and read when I look forward to discovering every book in their series. That is exactly how I feel about Lori Wilde. Received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review.

If you've never seen the movie "The Holiday", which by the way was way better than "Love, Actually", then the premise and plot of this book will be interesting and entertaining for you. It was for me, even though I've seen the movie and loved it.

Sometimes, one is in a need of change in scenery and our heroine really needed that so she decides to swap houses for the holidays with her online friend. Well, what can possibly go wrong, right?! LOL! After I found out what "yurt" is, I seriously now want to have one and live in it!

There was a lot of things that I loved in this story, especially Joe and Gabi. Their characters were well developed and they clicked together well.

If you love holiday stories that are not too "sappy" and are not taking over the romance part of it, you'll be into this book.
