Review: Once Upon a December


A one-of-a-kind Christmas market offers holiday magic in the new romance from the author of The Kindred Spirits Supper Club.

With a name like Astra Noel Snow, holiday spirit isn’t just a seasonal specialty–it’s a way of life. But after a stinging divorce, Astra’s yearly trip to the Milwaukee Christmas market takes on a whole new meaning. She’s ready to eat, drink, and be merry, especially with the handsome stranger who saves the best kringle for her at his family bakery.

For Jack Clausen, the Julemarked with its snowy lights and charming shops stays the same, while the world outside the joyful street changes, magically leaping from one December to the next every four weeks. He’s never minded living this charmed existence until Astra shows him the life he’s been missing outside of the festive red brick alley.

After a swoon-worthy series of dates, some Yuletide magic, and the unexpected glow of new love, Astra and Jack must decide whether this relationship can weather all seasons, or if what they’re feeling is as ephemeral as marshmallows in a mug of hot cocoa. 

Rating: 5-stars


Once Upon a December by Amy E, Reichert is a sweet yet magical Hallmark like story. Inside, is a story about a young man meeting a woman. Then, missing her like crazy. They both fall in love, yet they live two different lives. Neither one is from the same place. No matter the time or differences the two characters are set on loving each other despite the boundaries. Love is worth fighting for…this theme resonates throughout the whole book. I found the characters quirky, sweet, and funny. With every page, Astra and Jack pulled me deeper into their fictional world. They captured my heart and won. This was great Christmas spirit filled read with plenty of adventure.
