This Christmas edition story (Hannah Swensen #23) begins with a look back at Hannah Swensen as she finishes college and returns home right after the death of her father. Her mother helps a friend, Essie, while she is spending time convalescing from a broken hip. They plan to recreate a Christmas party from years gone by at a local ballroom. Hannah decides to open her own bakery and to be the chief baker for the party. As usual, delicious sweet and savory recipes are included at the end of each chapter. Good holiday addition to the series.
