Finished this one up in the tub last night. Solid meh rating. A cute holiday story but asks for a little too much suspension of belief. #bookandabath #whatamyreads

This book is so infused with hope and magic. I loved the characters and the setting. It is a perfect quick read for the Holidays. It is like a Hallmark Movie.

Coffee/reading date with my husband. Starting a new book tonight! I have never read anything by Kristin Hannah. A few of her books have been on my TBR for a long time, so this one seemed seasonally appropriate.

I spent a lot of time in the middle of this book being SUPER confused. At times it was just bit too far fetched for me. But to be honest I just loved its overall theme of Christmas magic and I was excited to find out what happened next. Worth the read, especially if you don‘t mind a bit of magic in your stories.

Guys I am only 52 pages into this story and it has already been a *wild* ride. Terrible sisters, plane crashes, weddings, ghosts, unplanned babies, I don‘t even know. 10/10 Can‘t wait to find out more after my Cafe Rio intermission.

Joy Candellaro is trying to get over her husband falling in love with her sister so she takes an unexpected flight to get away but the plane crashes. She does walk away but there is another explosion. She finds her way to a cabin and meets a father and son, Daniel and Bobby, and she hopes to be able start over again. There is an unexpected twist and a surprise ending. I found this book to be very thought provoking and magical at the same time.

Reecaspieces I enjoyed this read! Not my favorite by her. But I give her a thumbs up for uniqueness and creativity. So yes. I loved it 11mo
Bklover I did enjoy reading it. I don‘t read much romance anymore but I know that back when I did I‘d have loved this - do any of you notice stages in your life where you read certain things that now no longer interest you? It was a unique storyline. This definitely didn‘t hold up to the level of 11mo
jb72 I‘m not a romance reader, but this book didn‘t feel like total romance. It was a good and unique story. It sort of showed the complexity of our brains and our hearts too. The ending seemed far fetched, but that‘s what romance is. I do wonder how her soul knew where to find Bobby in his time of need? 11mo
See All 6 Comments
jb72 @Bklover I agree...book stages in our lives. When I was a teen I read more romance. Then I found sci-fi and started reading that which lead me to horror which is my favorite genre. I‘ve found in the last ten years I branch out some more on my reading genres too. 11mo
EadieB @jb72 @bklover I was thinking it was Maggie that somehow led Joy to Bobbie. (edited) 11mo
jb72 @EadieB @Bklover Yes, that would make sense. Maggie knee it was time for her to go so she led Joy there knowing she could help both Bobby and Joy find happiness again. 11mo

All I‘ve been in the mood for is Hallmark Christmas movies and this definitely fit the bill. It‘s a little heartbreaking, depressing and quite the journey, but you know has to have a happy ending! This is my first Kristin Hannah and based on this book, I‘ll definitely read more of her. I just have to remember not all her books with probably be Christmas like.

Reecaspieces Yes and no....I knew something was up. I actually thought she was a ghost. Not in a coma. Hmmmmm WELL PLAYED! 11mo

bridge12 I‘m still behind and haven‘t finished. I guessed she was in a coma but I‘m still really invested in Bobby and Daniel and wanting them to run into her somehow, and they fall in love and build a cute family 🥰 I‘m a total sucker for a good ending 11mo

Laughterhp My thought was that she had some internal injuries that were catching up with her. And then I realized what was going on. 11mo
Reecaspieces I have been saying it all along in my head ...she is dead or dreaming. 11mo
bridge12 Yeah, I had assumed pretty early on she was dead. However, Joy has a dream around chapter 8 of her sister saying “Joy, please wake up” so I thought she was in a coma. Finally, at the church waking up from the coma. 11mo

jb72 If it was me, I never would have called. She doesn‘t deserve the common decency of even that. 11mo
Laughterhp This is tough for me too. I wouldn‘t want to let her off the hook so easily, but I guess Joy is the bigger person and made sure her sister didn‘t worry. 11mo
Reecaspieces I understand all of y‘alls feelings. I am very glad she did it. Not saying I would...it is a fiction book! Lol 11mo
bridge12 Yeah, I probably would have never done it. I was incredibly relieved for Joy that her sister didn‘t answer so she could just leave a voicemail 11mo

jb72 @Bklover Exactly....she might somewhat know Daniel, but he certainly does not know her. 11mo
Laughterhp I agree too. She was definitely pushing too hard. Especially since she doesn‘t know why Daniel split with his ex wife and with her recent passing. @EadieB @Bklover @jb72 11mo
Reecaspieces @Laughterhp @EadieB @Bklover @jb72 I agree with all of y‘all. Joy is trying way too hard. I think she is just wishing...so therefore she is pushing 11mo
jb72 @Laughterhp @Bklover @EadieB @Reecaspieces I think it‘s that way for a lot of women. They want the relationship and family and busy feeling. And that‘s totally fine, except when you‘re still recovering from a past bad relationship. You need to be alone to work on yourself first. Who‘s to say Daniel is the total wrong man for her? 11mo

Reecaspieces @jb72 that has crossed my mind many times. And I agree. Daniel wants his son to be happy! 11mo
EadieB @jb72 @Reecaspieces @Pamwurtzler Something is not right with these scenes. Daniel could be grieving but he shouldn‘t be ignoring her or not speaking to her. 11mo

Laughterhp Very risky. I understand that she didn‘t want to go home and wanted to continue her journey, but she probably needed medical attention... 11mo

Laughterhp Yeah I know. But also her best friend. Or that‘s how it looks like their relationship was. Much worse because it‘s her sister. 11mo
Reecaspieces I think joy needs the break to Hope, just to escape her brain for a little while, with no reminders of the past. And Stacy...hmmm. What would you do? Family tends to create the worst hurts. And this would be unforgivable. But, it is her sister...how to overcome this would be terrible 11mo
EadieB @Reecaspieces I don‘t know if I would be able to get over my sister‘s betrayal such as this! 11mo
Reecaspieces @EadieB I agree totally, but, she will never know her niece or nephew. And it is not the Child‘s fault the parents are foolish. It would take years to get over this, if you ever got over it. Life is too short to carry around hate and miss out on the joys of a child. See....my head is spinning... thank goodness I only have a brother! No sister should ever do This! UGH 11mo
Pamwurtzler I think she needs change of scenery to begin to come to terms with the changes in her life. No one should have to walk in on that. 11mo
jb72 I would never forgive a sister for having an affair with my husband. Nor would I ever forgive the husband. I think Joy needed time to process all of this information. She decided to do something out of the norm. 11mo
EadieB @Pamwurtzler @jb72 Very devastating! 11mo
Bklover I‘m with @jb72 ! (edited) 11mo
jb72 @Bklover Yeah I‘m not a very forgiving person, but to me that is way too far. Especially since later Stacey says she didn‘t want to hurt her sister. Well obviously you did or you wouldn‘t have slept with the husband. 11mo
Bklover @jb72 Exactly. 11mo
bridge12 Sorry I‘m a couple of days behind, but I honestly couldn‘t believe Stacey!!! She had mentioned that Joy and her husband‘s relationship was over.... but seriously you couldn‘t find ANY other man!?!?!? This is unforgivable and I don‘t blame Joy for hoping on a plane to Hope, I feel I would have done something very similar in this situation. 11mo

EadieB @Ddzmini you can take a picture with your phone and then where it says post image go into your camera and click on the picture and it will add into Litsy. 2y
Ddzmini No I meant to add it here so you can see it but I‘ll just tag you in it 😋 2y

A plane crash in the rain forest in Washington State. The memories live on in the mind of the main character,Joy. Now, she must determine what is real. Strange and far fetched. Although I found the writing stilted at times, I did shed a tear here and there.

The funny thing is my sister had planned to take me to visit this Rain Forest this past summer, and we couldn‘t fit it in. That was the first time that I discovered its existence.

This was a quick, enjoyable read. The characters drew me in and I was curious to see where the story would take me.

I was about 30 pages into this book and realized I had read it before. It must have been before I started tracking in Goodreads. Nice little Christmas story.

Read this little book in a day. I am a huge Kristin Hannah fan and she did a good job on this one. It was a sweet holiday book with a fun twist. I also really enjoyed that she focused on the main character's love of photography.

Cinfhen Great book cover 💕 2y

A quick Christmas read. Not at all what I was expecting. I don't want to spoil anything but it has me hoping that some sort of magic exists
