'Down to You' by Addison Kline

Reviewer: Kaylene
Rating: 3.5 Stars
~ Synopsis ~
Holly Edgemont used to love celebrating Christmas, that is, until her whole world was turned upside down by an unexpected divorce from her college sweetheart Brant. This year, not only is she divorced, but the kids are going out of state with her ex Brant, leaving her utterly alone. Holly's party-girl friend Sloane tries to break her out of her frump by dragging her along to holiday parties where Holly meets cute and available Chris. But when Holly realizes that she still has feelings for Brant, she has a decision to make: Learn to trust her long time love who broke her heart, or move on for good.

Brant Edgemont is a divorced father of three, and hopelessly in love with his ex-wife, Holly. He made the biggest mistake of his life walking out two years ago. Despite his pleas to reconnect, Holly still resists him. Is it too late to rekindle their love? Or will Holly move on for good, leaving Brant himself heartbroken and alone?

Down To You is not just a romantic love story. It is a story of familial love, friendship, betrayal, redemption, and the magic that can happen at Christmas time when friends and family join together
~ Review ~
This book was a lovely read about Holly and her estranged husband Brant.  The story was about how they put their life back together after a tragic loss.  The sub characters in this novel were very interesting, I found Sloane to be a little overbearing, but all in all that was her character, and she was instrumental in getting the couple back together. The book was a holiday read, as it’s timed over Christmas and the New Year, with a New Year wedding.   There was an aside with Brant’s best friend Chris, who actually turned out to be a nasty piece of work.
I enjoyed the book and gave it 3 and a half stars.   The book was well written with only a few minor editing issues.   Probably the biggest issue is the formatting of the book which I found a little frustrating at times.
If you enjoy a holiday romance, then I would recommend this book.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
