The Holiday Swap

Maggie Knox. Putnam, $17 trade paper (352p) ISBN 978-0-593-33073-9
It’s double the treats and double the trouble as twins swap holidays and dramas in this delightful yuletide romance from Knox, the pseudonym for writing duo Karma Brown (The 4% Fix) and Marissa Stapley (Lucky). After an accident causes Charlie Godwin to lose her sense of taste and smell, she arranges for her twin, Cass, to take her place in Los Angeles as the cohost of her baking show’s Christmas special. Meanwhile, Charlie will replace Cass at her small-town family bakery a few hours away. Cass agrees to wear Charlie’s high-heeled city shoes and manage her obnoxious cohost, Austin, if Charlie will deal with Brett, Cass’s recent ex who refuses to accept their breakup. The resulting chaos and confusion gets even more complicated when Charlie falls for handsome firefighter Jake and Cass crushes on cute surfer/physician assistant Miguel, who treated Charlie after her accident. But who exactly are the men interested in—the real twin or the stand-in? There’s both tenderness and comedy as the sisters rediscover their priorities and sibling bond while hilariously struggling to draw the line between their roles and reality. This light romantic romp is delicious fun, perfect for rom-com fans in need of some Christmas cheer. (Oct.)
