In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren


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.


Mae and her family always celebrate Christmas with friends at a cabin in Utah. Mae has made some mistakes and she is hoping this year at the cabin will open up her eyes to what makes her happy. Little does she know the universe has a plan!

Mae is a young lady with plenty of flaws. I enjoy that in a character if the author can pull it off. Christina Lauren does an excellent job with Mae. Mae makes bad decisions. Heck, she makes terrible decisions. But, her sarcastic wit and her loving nature makes it all workout.

This is not my favorite book from these authors. It was a little monotonous is spots. But, it is still a laugh out loud novel. This author team always has some huge comical relationships and their characters crack me up.

Need a good, comic relief book for the holidays. This is it! Grab your copy today.
