This was my first Christina Lauren novel (I know, crazy right?!) and I’ve loved it. The chemistry between Mae and Andrew were superb and the moment Andrew realized that Mae was into him, made me actually smile. This traditional Groundhog Day approach was the perfect Christmas book with hilarious moments and many sweet moments. It put me in the Christmas spirit at a time when it’s not so cheery in the world; resulting in an amazing escapist novel that I craved.
I also loved when Andrew joined Mae under the Christmas tree, which was adorable. Their lifelong friendship really shone through and you could tell that would form a solid foundation for how their relationship played out.
Without giving too much more away this book brought me so much joy, and if this is how Christina Lauren delivers a story then I can’t wait to read another one of their books!
Book Description (from Goodreads)
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…but not for Maelyn Jones. She’s 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 world—the 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 awake…she’s 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 loop—and finally get her true love under the mistletoe.
Jam-packed with yuletide cheer, an unforgettable cast of characters, and Christina Lauren’s 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.
