A Different Christmas by KM Lowe
Overall star rating --- 5
About the book:
Two people. Two upbringings. One Christmas.
Sam was brought up to her happy family gathering at Christmas. Filled with many traditions that as an adult she thought were normal for everyone.
Getting ready to finish work for the holidays to go home to her family in Scotland, was her idea of fun and relaxation. Well, that was until her boss, Luke, told her he was dragging her to New York for work.
Much to Sam’s irritation, she has to go along and attend New York before flying home on Christmas Eve.
Luke grew up with parents that had a multimillionaire company and wanted for nothing. Apart from a family to celebrate Christmas with.
Luke grew up thinking he had what everyone had at Christmas, until he grew up and realized that Christmas is a family occasion.
Two characters that clash at the slightest thing is a recipe for disaster. Throw Sam and Luke into New York and it is either a make or break for their working relationship.
Would Christmas be different after this year?

The review --
I totally loved this book. It was so very, very Christmassy; and had characters that I adored. Not a clunker in the bunch. The story is awesome! You'll love it. The ending rocks, and doesn't leave you wanting more, but gives you everything you want; wraps it all up in a neat bow.
This book is such a delicious present. When PA Sam is told to accompany her boss Luke, home for Christmas, well that's where the fun just starts. There are tons of great moments in this book. This is one Christmas book that I'll remember next year. Yes, it was that good.
