Holly and Ivy Read Online Free - In a heartwarming novel of secret wishes and family lost and found, acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels creates a timeless Christmas story to cherish . . .
The flames of memory always seem to glow a little brighter during the holidays. Perhaps that's why this time of year is so difficult for airline heiress Ivy Macintosh, as she faces thoughts of yet another festive season alone. Since the plane crash that claimed the lives of her husband and two children eight years ago, she's been submerged in grief.
When eleven-year-old Holly Greenwood knocks on her door, lost and frightened after a forbidden visit to her singing teacher, Ivy's self-imposed exile is shattered. Holly has an extraordinary voice, and wants nothing more than to perform in an upcoming Christmas musical. Holly's father, Daniel, doesn't allow music in their home, refusing to give a good reason why--just as he refuses to talk about Holly's mother. Ivy has no idea how closely she and Daniel are linked by their tragic pasts, yet she's drawn to the warmth she senses beneath his gruff exterior. And as Christmas nears, their shared concern for Holly begins to draw Ivy back into the world again . . . and toward a family who may need her just as much as she needs them . . .

It took me awhile to get into the first half of the book but once I did, it picked up speed and I enjoyed this book. It was a pretty good read, especially with the holidays coming up :).

Implausible, illogical, and full of plot holes. None of the three main characters, or most of the secondary characters, seemed like actual real people.
Audiobook, purchased (then returned to get my credit back) via Audible. Brittany Pressley’s performance was good, given the source material.

** I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own**
This was sweet but also a bit sad - it felt just like a hallmark movie. It took me a while to get into, and I felt like there was some suspension of disbelief required to accept the behaviour of some...

First Fern Michaels book to have read & a Christmas one (#3 of 12 I committed to reading at the start of 2017). Four stars because it isn't an overtly compelling tale but one which begins with tragedy & only becomes a story of rebirth & forgiveness from that point forward. I like that...

A very sad and heartwarming story that gets you thinking about all you are thankful for. The story remains quite depressing for a good part of the story but once the story begins to turn, it really turns into a delightful book! I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my hone...

This was a huge disappointment. The story was slow, and the ending was predictable, which normally doesn't bother me. The characters were horrible. The main characters, Ivy and Daniel, abruptly change completely, which was unbelievable. I did like that this took place at Christmas and in North Ca...
