Review: In a Holidaze

In a Holidaze



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.

Rating: 4-stars


In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren is like the adult version of 16 Candles. A woman who has had a crush on Andrew for many years, is stuck in a rut with her job, and dealing with the loss of her family’s cabin gets to go through all the events over again. Until she gets it right. She made a wish with fate hoping for a new beginning. Boy, did she get her wish. Stuck replaying previous events until she finds the strength and courage to follow her own path. A path that might just lead her to the man of her dreams. I laughed along with the cast of characters. They charming, fun, and full of quirks. I loved the characters and their dilemmas. The writers behind this book, have once again proved they are the romantic comedy queens of the universe. It’s difficult to not fall in love with their books. I was lured in deep and have fallen again…
