Driving Home for Christmas by A.L. Michael

Blurb

Megan McAllister is home for Christmas…whether she likes it or not!

Christmas is about family…and for Megan family means two people: herself, and her daughter Skye. It doesn’t mean her parents who, ten years ago, saw her pregnancy as anything but a miracle. And it definitely doesn’t include her irresistible ex-boyfriend Lucas Bright.
So ‘Driving Home for Christmas’ has never been top of Megan’s festive playlist. But for Skye, she knows she needs to spend the holiday season with the people she’s left behind. She can do this. Even if the thought of meeting Lucas under the mistletoe still has her feeling like she’s drunk one-too-many Snowballs!
But somewhere between the hanging of stockings and the crackle of wrapping paper, Christmas starts to sparkle. And Megan begins to wonder if family could be bigger than her and Skye after all…

Review

Megan's daughter Skye is the most important person in her life. She loves her very much and wants what's best for her. They have a strong bond and are good friends. Skye is a great kid, she's unbelievably bright and she's good company. Megan's aunt has been there for them ever since Skye was a baby. Unfortunately Megan's parent's weren't that supportive and she hasn't seen them ever since she told them she was pregnant. Her mother had big plans for her and Megan had to make them happen whatever the costs. The only good thing in her life was her boyfriend Lucas and Megan also hasn't seen him since she left her home town before Skye was born.

Megan's parents have invited her for Christmas. After many years without contact she now has to visit her family again. It means that she can't escape her past any longer. She keeps running into Lucas and even though she tries not to care about him, it's difficult. Skye loves spending time with her grandparents and with Lucas, so for her Megan has to be strong and face the people she's so carefully avoided. Will she be able to survive this Christmas at home?

Driving Home for Christmas is a story about a woman who has a difficult past. Megan has a lot of bad memories to deal with. There were also some good times and they were mostly with Lucas. Even though Christmas is part of this novel it's also a story that can be read throughout the year as it isn't only about the holidays. Megan's history is much more important. I enjoyed reading this book very much and I think it's really good. I think A.L. Michael has written a wonderful story and I'm happy I had the chance to read it.
