Now, with a total of fifteen grandchildren and a house full of love, memories, and a whole lot of crazy, they are literally one big, happy family. And with the Deckers, they always expect the unexpected–especially around the holidays. ‘Tis the season to be merry, but the new addition that comes this December might not be ready to kick off the New Year as a Decker.

Born on the mystical day of October 30th in the not so mystical lands of Mexico City, Claudia grew up with a childhood that resembled a caffeine-injected soap opera. Seventeen years ago she ventured to the lands of her techie husband—a.k.a. the U.S.—with their offspring to start a new adventure. She now lives in Colorado working for a small IT company, managing her household filled with three confused dogs, said nerd husband, two daughters wrought with fandoms and a son who thinks he’s the boss of the house. To survive she works continually to find purpose for the voices flitting through her head, plus she consumes high quantities of chocolate to keep the last threads of sanity intact.
This was a surprisingly heavy read, and I was COMPLETELY lost while reading it since I haven’t read any of the other books in the series (I will be going back to read the whole series for sure.)
That aside, I really did enjoy this one. Mostly centered around TUCKER, Thea’s son she gave up for adoption when she was a teenager. The story is told from multiple POV’s that add different layers and emotions to the story. It is a rather heavy subject matter that is tackled, and my heart ached for Tucker and Thea. But it is well written and despite being pretty lost to who everyone was, it still managed to suck me in completely.
Overall a really touching novella full of love and feels. I will definitely be checking out this series in the near future in preparation for Tucker’s book next year.
