Book Description: Groundhog Day meets The Family Stone in the quintessential holiday romance by the New York Times bestselling author of The Unhoneymooners.

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 “rom-com momentum and charm (New York Times Book Review), this swoon-worthy romantic read will make you believe in the power of wishes and the magic of the holidays.

Rating: 3 Stars

Review: Christina Lauren comes back with a fun holiday romp that has all the heat that you are used to from them, Maelynn keeps reliving the early days of her Christmas vacation until she figures out what she really wants and takes charge to get it.

Mae is not happy, living at home with her parents, and she hates her job. Every Christmas her and her family go to Utah to spend the holiday with her parents best friends. Mae has been in love with one of her parents best friends sons, but has never said anything before. When she kisses the other son, she is doomed to repeat these days, until she figures out what will make her happy.

This story is so much more than just a romance novel. Christina Lauren writes a book that will make you think about chasing what you really want and how to make yourself happy. At times this book is delightful, steamy and everything in between. This is a very nice additional to their already very large number of books they have written.

Thank you NetGalley and Gallery Books for an Advanced Reader’s Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

You really can say I am an obsessed reader as I read 200-300 books per year. I love Literary Fiction, Memoirs (I don't really care what kind), Mysteries and Thrillers. Once in awhile I will thrown in some YA and Romance. When I am not reading, I am a Sales Engineer for a software company, and I take care of my three cats with my husband. I love music, which my college degree is in. Looking forward to share my thoughts on all things reading.
