In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren
Maelyn is meeting her family and friends at a cabin in Park City, a cabin they’ve been meeting at for the holidays ever since she can remember. This is a welcome respite from her life where she’s unhappy in her career and love life.
For as long as Mae’s been noticing boys as more than just an annoyance, she’s had a crush on Andrew, the son of one of her parent’s long-time friends, while he’s never seemed to notice her other than as a friend. The prospect of seeing Andrews sends zings of anticipation and happiness through her.
However, the holiday doesn’t go as expected: Mae makes a tipsy mistake and is full of regrets as she heads home, but things don’t go as planned. A curious series of events sends Mae to the beginning of her vacation, just arriving at the cabin to live it all over again. Can she get it right and find happiness this time around? Fans the films Groundhog Day and Edge of Tomorrow will definitely have fun with the story!
I loved In a Holidaze! It was magical! Sparkling lights, shopping for that perfectly imperfect tree surrounded by the smell of pine, the cold of snow, hot chocolate, and crackling fires! Seeing Andrew and Mae fall for each was oh-so-lovely, dreamy and steamy! I’m such a sucker for the unrequited love troupe and this is one that had me all swoony with big heart-eyes! A total recommend!
I alternately listened and read an e-copy. The audio version was fantastic! Patti Murin made this enchanting story come alive with her performance! I listened at 1.3x-1.4x.
