'Tis The Season Author:Lorna Landvik Heiress Caroline Dixon has managed to alienate nearly everyone with her alcohol-fueled antics, which have also provided near-constant fodder for the poison-pen tabloids and their gossip-hungry readers. But like so many girls-behaving-badly, the twenty-six-year-old socialite gets her comeuppance, followed by a newfound attempt to live a saner exi... more »stence, or at least one more firmly rooted in the real world. As Caro tentatively begins atoning for past misdeeds, she reaches out to two wonderful people who years ago brought meaning to her life: her former nanny, Astrid Brevald, now living in Norway and Arizona dude ranch owner, Cyril Dale. While Astrid fondly remembers Caro as a special, sweet little girl left in her charge, Cyril recalls how he and his late wife were quite taken with the quick-witted teenager Caro had become when she spent a difficult period in her life at the ranch as her father was dying. In a series of e-mail exchanges, Caro reveals the depth of her pain and the lengths she went to hide it.

The correspondence leads to the promise of a reunion, just in time for Christmas. But the holiday brings unexpected revelations that change the way everyone sees themselves and one another.« less
Written in the form of emails. I had a bit of a hard time getting into it and keeping the characters straight. Moved along quickly though. OK book, just definitely not her best, hardly compares to her earlier books. Love this author though!
Love Larna Landvik and this book doesn't disappoint. The story is told through a series of e-mail. It takes a few pages to get the characters straight but then the story unfolds. Once again Lorna Landvik works her magic. This is a very quick, meaningful, fun read. I highly recommend it! Carol - McFarland
