Publisher's Summary

The Mackenzies gather for a clan Christmas and Hogmanay in Scotland. In the chaos of preparations for the celebration - the first of Hart and Eleanor's married life - one of Ian's Ming bowls gets broken, and the family scrambles to save the day. Daniel busily runs a betting ring for everything from the hour Eleanor's baby will arrive, to whether Mac's former-pugilist valet can win a boxing match, to who will be the first of the many guests to be caught under the mistletoe. Ian begins a new obsession, and Beth fears that the loss of one of his precious bowls has made him withdraw once more into his private world.

First Thought when Finished: A Mackenzie Family Christmas is a must read for those that have read the series so far.

Overall Thoughts: Super short review: Read this book and get all the warm fuzzies. For a very tortured family it was nice to see most of them happy and surrounded by love!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Angela Dawe / Length: 5 hrs and 7 mins


Angela rocked it! :)

Final Thoughts: Love this series! It is a must read for historical romance fans.

Merry Christmas from the Mackenzie's!

The whole families together how can you not love that. Everyone gets their fair share of time in this book and we see the entire family with the kids and the dogs and the servants all enjoying their time together. It's an excellent feel good book. I wish it was longer but I realized that it was not meant to be a long book. I laughed, I cried, it was a very heartwarming book. Oh and by the end I like Hart more than I had in previous books.

Love the characters interactions in the McKenzie family

Every McKenzie story is so fun to discover more about this family.
The descriptions of the people and places are so well done. I hate to have the story ends.

Didn't hold my interest

Not as good as others in the series. Not much of a story. The family is all together for Christmas.

Very good

I really enjoyed this story. I hadn't read any by this author before but I'm going to be checking out the rest of this series as I so enjoyed this one. The narrator did a really good job with bringing the story to life and keeping me intrigued with all her voices for the characters

I love the Mackenzie Family!

It was a nice update on the lives of the Mackenzies! I still love Ian the best! The 4 Mackenzie brothers are well and in love and making families and many new characters have been introduced. I really like this narrator and recognize all the characters the moment she starts reading! I had fun listening!

Love the Mackenzie family

I first read this one on my kindle, but had to have it to listen to. So far I have not been disappointed in any of the stories about the Mackenzie family. This gave you a kind of update on the whole family and what was going on in each couples lives. I wish more authors would do that. This story puts Ian and Beth back in the forefront which delighted me. Ian and Beth awwwww what an exceptional couple they are.

Totally enjoyable!

I got this book for $2.95 because I bought the Kindle book first. Since that was free it was a great deal. Even though it was set around Christmas it would be enjoyable any time of year because the characters are interesting and the story was fun. Have yourself a jolly good time with this one.
