In A Holidaze by Christina Lauren
This well-known romance writing duo created another hit!! In this Christmas version of Groundhog Day, Mae is forced to relive her week with family and friends over and over again. Since she asked the universe what makes her happy, she now has to figure out if that means a career change, taking a chance on her lifelong love, saving the beloved cabin or something else.
At this point, a bit of ridiculousness is always expected in my holiday rom coms, so the time loop aspect was just another delightful part of the story. I loved Mae and Andrew’s friendship and the possibility of more between them. Plus, the backdrop of Christmas and the group’s holiday traditions make this a perfect cozy winter read. 4 Stars | Amazon | Bookshop.org

The Twelve Dates of Christmas by Jenny Bayliss
I happened to win a copy of this eARC through a publisher giveaway and I’m so glad I did!! I want to tell everyone to go out and read this charming Christmas novel. This is easily one of the best new Christmas books of 2020.

Christmas at the Island Hotel by Jenny Colgan
Jenny Colgan often returns to locations in her previous novels for new Christmas stories. This one takes readers back to the Scottish island of Mure, from The Cafe by the Sea. The new hotel opening brings together Isla and Konstantin, one of the servers and one of the cooks. Isla comes from nothing, but Konstantin, well he’s the son of a Duke.
