Love Actually meets Groundhog Day in the quintessential holiday romance by the New York Times bestselling author of The Honey-Dont List. Its the most wonderful time of the yearbut not for Maelyn Jones. Shes 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 worldthe 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 awakeshes 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 loopand finally get her true love under the mistletoe. Jam-packed with yuletide cheer, an unforgettable cast of characters, and Christina Laurens 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.

Who doesn't love a good Groundhog day trope?!
Again, romance not generally my thing but I love Christmas! And maybe I'm “softening up“ as of late.
But in any case, this was fun!

I‘ll be discussing this one with my daughter when I see her Friday. I love that she asks me to buddy read with her. This was a reread for me but the first read for her. I can‘t wait to hear her thoughts.

?4️⃣☃️It was a rough December & I've never felt less "Christmasy". I needed this book for its' cozy, easy reading & happy ending. A Groundhog Day time loop set in Park City, UT-one of my favorite places, so I loved this. The romance was friends to lovers & it delivered. It felt real, it was flirty & fun to read. Snowy winter fun, board games, the hilarity (sometimes uneasiness) of the time loop, sneaking around romance & family tradition.✨️

This was my second time reading this. The perfect book to end December with.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ If a Hallmark movie and Groundhog Day created a love child novel. Mae keeps living the same annual cabin trip over and over, and in doing so, attempts to manipulate situations in hopes of the right outcome. Pretty cheesy, but a cute December read. #BOTM #backlist

Now, I think it's fair to say that I'm not a reader of rom-coms so I approached this one with a bit of trepidation. I am surprised by just how much I enjoyed this. I think the time loop premise helped, but it also had some funny moments & some rather steamy ones. (continued)

OutsmartYourShelf The only real issue I had was that Andrew is almost 30 & Mae is 26, yet I had to keep reminding myself that they weren't older teenagers or early twenties as they both seemed kind of immature at times. Minor quibble though. Can't say I'm in a rush to read more rom-coms but this was a good one. 4🌟

Okay, this was freaking cute. Just the right kind of Christmas, feel good and holly jolly vibes one needs. Just enough “groundhog‘s day” where you aren‘t over the restart, family and relatable life drama with romance, naturally.

TIL that Patti Murin narrates audiobooks. Whaaa 😍Interesting take on a holiday romance with the time jumping aspect. I do feel like that component of the story was a little unresolved. I kept bracing myself for another jump that never happened. Also I felt the relationship moved too quickly at the end of the book. Not trying to damper a HEA but damn 😆 overall it was an enjoyable read and I liked getting to know these characters. #WinterReadathon

I wanted to read a book about the holidays, and one of my least favorite genres is romance. Needless to say, this book wasn‘t for me. I guess that just about sums it up. If you like romance novels, this book might be for you. I found it disappointing.

2. I currently subscribe to FairyLoot which is a fantasy book box and love it! I used to subscribe to Illumicrate, but the shipping from the UK was way too expensive (maybe one day in the future I can resubscribe). I also used to subscribe to BOTM, but I think their quality could use some improvement.

3. I really enjoyed the tagged book.

A read reminiscent of Groundhog Day, Make keeps reliving different moments in her life in this charming read. I enjoyed the popping in and out of different time periods in this book, it was just perfect for this storyline. It was a heartfelt, enjoyable, sweet, lovely holiday story. I especially liked how Mae had to face the consequences of her mistakes, her honest talks with her loved ones were touching and heartwarming. A magical holiday read.

I'm trying to start thinking about my #WinterGames plans because the wait times on books can be so long on Libby. I thought I could go ahead and put myself on some hold lists. I'd love some recommendations for wintery/Christmasy romance novels. I read In a Holidaze and The Twelve Dates of Christmas last year and really enjoyed both of them. I have put Written in the Stars on hold. Any other suggestions?

Nelnjali I tend to prefer the more humorous Christmas rom-coms, rather than super saccharine romances. LGBTQ+ rep would be a huge plus as well! And I don't mind some cheesiness. The Netflix Christmas movies are a guilty pleasure of mine. 2y

Even though there was a groundhog element it was one of the most realistic romances I‘ve read in a while. I love the way it ended too.

Sort of a Christmas Groundhog day - Maelyn has been in love with Andrew Hollis (a family friend's son) since she can remember. When what may be the last year the group spends together at their Christmas cabin retreat goes awry, she finds herself reliving the trip until she can figure out what and who makes her happy. And unlike Groundhog Day, she has to actually deal with the consequences because happy doesn't always mean smooth sailing...

January 21, 2022 AND JUST LIKE THAT... i finished reading the book!!! Omg It was steamy, suspenseful, and just as I had joped the ending would be. I love the characters Maelyn and Andrew (love birds). I enjoyed reading about their romantic relationship. 5/5

January 20,2022 It has 18 days since my last post. Here is what I will share with you though: I FINISHED TWELVE DATES OF CHRISTMAS AND CHRISTMAS SOPHAHOLIC. I would give Twleve Dates of Christmas a 5/5 and Christmas Shopaholic a 4/5. I am reading my last christmas themed book IN A HOLIDAZE. Not sure what rating I will give it so stay tuned...

This is my first read of Christina Lauren.This is a festive, quirky, romance that has a ‘ground hog day‘ type plot. Meaning, the days repeat themselves and one lucky person, Mae in this case, gets to be driven batty over it.

The dialogue - hysterical!
Uncle Benny - he needs his own book
The plot - Ground hog day is hard to do

I really liked this take on the time loop trope. It was super cute for the holidays. It made me smile and was mostly just a feel good book. The relationships were all so sweet and I loved how this one included the whole family. It felt like a fun Christmas movie and I really enjoyed this book a lot. A bit predictable, but still a great book to read for the holidays!

I‘m not usually huge on romance novels but I really enjoyed this! The characters were great and I could relate a lot to Mae. Particularly the bit where she recognized how doing things for tradition sake isn‘t always the best - that it‘s great to have some spontaneity sometimes too. Such a fun, quick read

I‘m pretty sure I‘ve had this book on my radar since the first #WinterGames, so I‘m thrilled that I finally got the chance to read it. The first half of the book didn‘t really keep my interest, but once the whole Groundhog Day thing stopped repeating I got more into it. It definitely had some cute moments, so I‘ll give it a 3.5/5 ⭐️ #MistletoeManiacs

LeslieO I felt the same. The second half picked up. 2y
