Quick Summary

Twin sisters Charlie and Cass Goodwin may live across the country from each other but they’re each struggling to make things work in their personal lives. Charlie can’t host her cooking show after a concussion leaves her unable to taste and smell and Cass’s ex-boyfriend isn’t getting the message that they’re over. So Charlie calls Cass and asks her to do something they haven’t done since childhood: Switch places! So Charlie takes over running the family bakery while Cass goes to LA to try and host Charlie’s show. Will the swap lead to disaster or be just what the doctor ordered?

If you are looking for a book that is a little Gilmore Girls and a little You’ve Got Mail… this is the holiday read for you! I can’t wait for you to kick off the holiday season with The Holiday Swap!

All I could think while reading this is that it’s a grown up Parent Trap set at Christmas and I didn’t know I needed that but I did! This book is so delightful and will be a great way to kickoff your seasonal reading.


This book was the perfect way to kick off my holiday reading! I loved learning more about Charlie and Cass as they switched places and adored their hometown and family bakery–so quirky and charming. You’re going to love this one!

  1. I saw you post this on instagram and bought it this afternoon and just read it 5 hours. I loved it! It was the perfect book to start off the holiday season. Also I giggled that the starter’s name was Dolly because of your Dolly!
