About the Author
More from Beth
What’s going on with the Thatcher sisters?
Readers have asked me this question so often since The Best We’ve Been, the third and what I considered final book in the Thatcher Sisters Series, which released in May 2020. In the series, Payton, Jillian, and Johanna each had their moment center stage. Some readers told me they’d come to understand and, yes, even like older sister Johanna. Quite a feat, considering how she annoyed readers in book one, Things I Never Told You.
I ended the series with the trio of sisters in a good place – the best they’d ever been. The circumstances of their lives weren’t all tied off in nice, neat bows, but then real life isn’t like that, is it? And as the author, I was content to leave the sisters there and let readers imagine what happened next.
And then 2020 disrupted life for all of us. For me? Writing didn’t happen. I promised myself I would dive back into story in 2021. What better way than with a Christmas novella? So many readers love Christmas stories. And what better time to revisit Payton, Jillian, and Johanna and answer readers’ question: What’s going on with the Thatcher sisters?
I wasn’t sure myself. Part of the fun of writing is rediscovering well-known characters as you discover a new story. Set against the backdrop of Christmas? That was just an added blessing.
It’s been Christmas time for me throughout 2021 – a time to enjoy family traditions and face some unexpected changes. Welcome back to the Thatcher family!

Unpacking Christmas: A Thatcher Sisters Christmas is a great story by Beth K Vogt. I found this quick novella to be a wonderful tale to get anyone ready for the most wonderful time of the year. I adored this family and enjoyed spending time with them. I did find it to be quite inspirational and heartwarming. With less than one hundred fifty pages, I was entertained from start to finish.
I am giving Unpacking Christmas: A Thatcher Sisters Christmas a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who are looking for sweet and clean Christmas reads. I would love to read more like this by Beth K Vogt in the future.
I received a digital copy of Unpacking Christmas: A Thatcher Sisters Christmas from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
