Charlie Goodwin is a twin with a successful baking career and on a fast track to her own baking show! When she has an accident that causes her to lose her sense of taste so she makes a quick decision to switch places with her twin.

Her twin Cassandra is having her own issues with her long time boyfriend she is ready to move on from but he is not letting her go. Also she wants a break from the holiday rush at their families bakery.

The switch helped both sisters to overcome some issues and stand up for themselves in ways they wouldn’t have done for themselves.

They both also met someone or had new relationships kindle during this whirlwind week. I do love the year later epilogue with their growth.

This could definitely be read year round. There was snow and so much baking but it wasn’t as much about the holidays. The baking was center stage.

Thank you @penguinrandomhouse and @netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.

A feel-good, holiday-themed romantic comedy about identical twins who switch lives in the days leading up to Christmas–perfect for fans of Christina Lauren’s In a Holidaze and Josie Silver’s One Day in December.

All they want for Christmas is a different life.

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?
