Book review for In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren
I feel like I’m a bit late to this one, but here it is anyway. This is a fun, very readable Christmas Rom Com by writing team Christina Lauren. I’m usually not one for rom coms but I have read of few of their books now and have found them light and funny.
Christmas at the cabin with old family friends is Mae’s favourite time of year – and this year her life is a mess and she is longing for the familiarity of friends and tradition. What she gets, however, is something quite different.
Groundhog style, Mae relives the holiday after pleading with the universe to show her what will make her happy. Is it getting together with the guy who likes her and everyone expects her to get together with, or is it pursing his brother who she has had a crush on for forever? How important are traditions that people do for the sake of them and not for enjoyment? How important even is place when the cabin turns out to be too much to maintain for the owners?
The romance is fun, there are some great moments that made me laugh, and even a bit of existential angst getting solved. All in all, a good book that follows a pretty predictable trajectory with some interesting characters.
Thanks so #netgalley and the publisher for the review copy.
