Love Actually meets Groundhog Day in the quintessential holiday romance by the New York Times bestselling author of The Honey-Dont List. Its the most wonderful time of the yearbut not for Maelyn Jones. Shes living with her parents, hates her going-nowhere job, and has just made a romantic error of epic proportions. But perhaps worst of all, this is the last Christmas Mae will be at her favorite place in the worldthe snowy Utah cabin where she and her family have spent every holiday since she was born, along with two other beloved families. Mentally melting down as she drives away from the cabin for the final time, Mae throws out what she thinks is a simple plea to the universe: Please. Show me what will make me happy. The next thing she knows, tires screech and metal collides, everything goes black. But when Mae gasps awakeshes on an airplane bound for Utah, where she begins the same holiday all over again. With one hilarious disaster after another sending her back to the plane, Mae must figure out how to break free of the strange time loopand finally get her true love under the mistletoe. Jam-packed with yuletide cheer, an unforgettable cast of characters, and Christina Laurens trademark downright hilarious (Helen Hoang, author of The Bride Test) hijinks, this swoon-worthy romantic read will make you believe in the power of wishes and the magic of the holidays.

4✨I struggled figuring out and keeping track of all the characters in the beginning, but got a handle on it. Even though there was a groundhog element it was one of the most realistic romances I‘ve read in a while. I love the way it ended too. Thank you for sharing @DGRachel Read for #LMPBC @Littlewolf1 and @BethM

Sort of a Christmas Groundhog day - Maelyn has been in love with Andrew Hollis (a family friend's son) since she can remember. When what may be the last year the group spends together at their Christmas cabin retreat goes awry, she finds herself reliving the trip until she can figure out what and who makes her happy. And unlike Groundhog Day, she has to actually deal with the consequences because happy doesn't always mean smooth sailing...

January 21, 2022 AND JUST LIKE THAT... i finished reading the book!!! Omg It was steamy, suspenseful, and just as I had joped the ending would be. I love the characters Maelyn and Andrew (love birds). I enjoyed reading about their romantic relationship. 5/5

January 20,2022 It has 18 days since my last post. Here is what I will share with you though: I FINISHED TWELVE DATES OF CHRISTMAS AND CHRISTMAS SOPHAHOLIC. I would give Twleve Dates of Christmas a 5/5 and Christmas Shopaholic a 4/5. I am reading my last christmas themed book IN A HOLIDAZE. Not sure what rating I will give it so stay tuned...

3 STARS - I'm a little late for a Christmas-y themed story but my library copy finally came in!! This was a good, easy-going wintery read. I loved the extended family vibe and the banter with Mae and Ben but the romance was just okay and I wish the magical element was explained a bit more.

This is my first read of Christina Lauren.This is a festive, quirky, romance that has a ‘ground hog day‘ type plot. Meaning, the days repeat themselves and one lucky person, Mae in this case, gets to be driven batty over it.

Likes~
The dialogue - hysterical!
Uncle Benny - he needs his own book
The plot - Ground hog day is hard to do

I really liked this take on the time loop trope. It was super cute for the holidays. It made me smile and was mostly just a feel good book. The relationships were all so sweet and I loved how this one included the whole family. It felt like a fun Christmas movie and I really enjoyed this book a lot. A bit predictable, but still a great book to read for the holidays!

CaramelLunacy This sounds like so much fun 9mo

I‘m not usually huge on romance novels but I really enjoyed this! The characters were great and I could relate a lot to Mae. Particularly the bit where she recognized how doing things for tradition sake isn‘t always the best - that it‘s great to have some spontaneity sometimes too. Such a fun, quick read

I‘m pretty sure I‘ve had this book on my radar since the first #WinterGames, so I‘m thrilled that I finally got the chance to read it. The first half of the book didn‘t really keep my interest, but once the whole Groundhog Day thing stopped repeating I got more into it. It definitely had some cute moments, so I‘ll give it a 3.5/5 ⭐️ #MistletoeManiacs

LeslieO I felt the same. The second half picked up. 9mo
jewright This exactly how I felt! The whole time thing was so weird. The book would have been better without it. 9mo

The Christmas Pig is a fun children's Christmas story that asks you to suspend your disbelief and believe in the magic of the holidays for a bit.

I listened to the audiobook of In A Holidaze on my morning dog walks throughout the month of December. It's definitely cheesy but was still a feel good, festive story for the holiday season.⁣

Keeping Christmas is an advent collection of readings that reflects on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

Tomorrow will be full of traveling between my husband‘s family & mine, so today I stayed home to bake, do laundry, and read the tagged book.

I love Christina Lauren‘s stories; they do such a good job of making you root for the characters. I want to be friends with these families and spend time in Park City with them over the holidays. ❤️🎄🎅🏻

I love everything so much! Thank you @Gissy for such an incredibly generous and thoughtful swap! Not pictured is the toddler who immediately took his book and ran into his tent to read it 😂🎄we love all of your selections and I‘m SO excited to read this book!! #jolabokaflod @MaleficentBookDragon thank you for an awesome swap!

Gissy I‘m glad you liked it but I knew about your baby girl too late. I saw the post when I was going to send the package. Where I was at that moment, I couldn‘t find something for a newborn, so I thought the tree ornament (Sally from the movie), could be her first ornament. I hope you don‘t mind🤗 9mo
StaceGhost @Gissy you‘re so thoughtful! She definitely loved both the ornament and Zero! My son loves the Nightmare Before Christmas too ❤️thank you so much everything is much appreciated and the chocolate is delicious! Hazelnut is my absolute favorite 😻 9mo

I am doing something that I have not done before. I am reading a romantic holiday novel. I just came from the bookstore and this is one of the books that I purchased. Why now? Because B&N had an entire table display devoted to books like these…bright covers with snowy scenes, fireplaces, holiday glitz, lovey-dovey notions floating in the air and the word ‘December‘ in the title. I kept being pulled in that direction. So here I am for the 1st time.

Reggie Lol this post sounds like the beginning of one of those romances. What you left off was that when you reached for the book, your hand touched another hand. The hand of some handsome stranger who also never reads those books but was buying for his sister. Then comes book chatter flirtation. Boom there you go: Christmas romance ensues!!! Lol I hope you like the book! 9mo

This was really sweet. It's certainly the kind of book you pick up for the holidays. Time travel of a sort is difficult to get right in any story, in my opinion, but ultimately I didn't mind that here. I liked how the families of the main character and the love interest were not relegated into the background, and gave meaning to the story in some way. I wasn't too sure about the ending, but that's just me.

⭐: 4

This was somewhere between a so so and a pick. Overall I enjoyed the story but could have done without some of the sexualised bits that didn‘t add to the story. It started off as a Groundhog Day style book but then that almost seemed to be forgotten about or played about with as the book progressed. Still, however, overall an enjoyable read.

I have mixed feelings. The book was ok enough and it ended fairly well. I didn't have any issues with the Groundhog Day parts either. What bugged me was most of this book felt more YA than a lot of YA books. You're adults....act like it?

A million kudos to the authors for creating such a fun and atmospheric Christmas themed book. I really enjoyed spending time with this blended family. I wish my own holiday traditions are half as fun! So why is this a “so so” to me? Well, I feel like the authors took the easy way out when it came to the romance element. Even though I dislike love triangles I wish it had been a part of the plot. The romance story is very boring. 😕

This was a fun read! A Groundhog Day inspired Christmas romcom. My one critique would be the weak 3rd act conflict, it was underdeveloped. Otherwise a fun cast of characters and cute romance.

4.75🌟 Oh my, I enjoyed this fun, holiday tale. Have I read things that are more profound and unique? Yes. Did this book deliver exactly what I want in a fluffy, holiday rom-com? Also yes. And, it actually came with a few thoughtful moments to reflect on as well. I highly recommend this to readers who love 90s rom-coms and joyful holiday romance movies. This one is well written, fast-paced, a bit spicy, and just a feel-good read.
