I borrowed it from the library.
Vincent Everett, the Baron of Windsor is seeking revenge against Larissa Ascot’s father. He ruins the Ascots’ credit with the merchants in town and buys out the mortgage on the Ascot home and evicts them. He does all this while Larissa’s father is away at sea so he can’t fix what the Baron has undone. When Vincent lays on the beautiful Larissa he is determined to have her out all cost and ruins her reputation. He has a plan. Will it work or will it back fire on him.
I liked Home for the Holidays, but it was lacking in some areas. I felt it was quite predictable. Larissa was very gullible and Vincent such a devious rogue. It did make for a good story to read during the Christmas season, although the only way one knew the story was set around Christmas was the book’s title and a couple references to the season.
For these reasons I give Home for the Holidays three stars and a grade of “C”. If you enjoy Johanna Lindsey’s novels I recommend checking out Home for the Holidays at Christmas time.
