Home for the Holidays

(book 5 of 7 in the Mother-Daughter Book Club series)

This holiday season, join the mother-daughter book club as they dive into the Betsy-Tacy series and turn the page to a whole new chapter of adventures!

Unfortunately, nothing goes quite as planned for any of the girls. On a Christmas cruise with their families, Megan and Becca fight over the dashing son of the ship’s captain. Cassidy and her family fly back to California to visit Cassidy’s sister Courtney and stay with old friends in Laguna Beach during Hanukkah. Meanwhile, they’re wrestling with a big question: which state should they call home? And back in Concord, a disastrous sledding accident means both Emma and Jess have to completely change their winter vacation plans.

Between squabbles, injuries, and blizzards, everything seems to be going wrong. Will the girls be able to find their holiday spirit in time for a rollicking New Year’s Eve party?

Book Extensions


“The mother-daughter book club is back, and fans will be delighted with the fifth book in this popular tween series. This time, the girls and their moms are reading the classic Betsy-Tacy novels. …Frederick masterfully weaves elements of each classic into the plot, and the ‘fun facts’ about the chosen author are cleverly inserted in a way that will make readers interested in classic fiction. … a fun, well-written book with great teen appeal.” (VOYA)

“Emma, Jess, Cassidy, Megan, Becca and their mothers are all back for a new season of the Mother-Daughter book club. This season the girls and their mothers will be reading the Betsy-Tacy series by Maud Hart Lovelace. … Through all of the bumps and trials the girls’ family and friendships stand the tests of time. I absolutely love The Mother-Daughter book Club series and recommend it as a great read for young girls. My daughter is 19 and when we got this new book in the mail she was so excited! She wanted to read it before I got to it, but was gracious enough to allow me first dibs! This 5th book was just as good as the 1st and I’m looking forward to future books in the series.” (edifyingandedgy.com … 5 hearts)
