One Christmas wish, two brothers, and a lifetime of hope are on the line for hapless Maelyn Jones in In a Holidaze, the quintessential holiday romantic novel by Christina Lauren, 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 “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.
I was provided a review copy; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
❝It never occurred to me that you might be mine.❞
If you had the chance to travel back in time and change the outcome of your future, would you?
In this hilarious story filled with heartwarming and swoon-worthy moments, Christina Lauren throw Maelyn Jones into a continuous time loop, where her words and actions determine not only her future but the future of those around her.
This was such a fun story. From the amazing characters to the situations Maelyn puts herself and her family through, I was either gasping for air from laughing or gasping with dread.
I’m not typically a fan of holiday reads, because they tend to be too ‘sweet’ and ‘hallmark-y’ for me. Which is why I loved this story so much; it went against that formula, yet still delivered on the importance of love and family.
