Ariadne has known Jess forever. Their mothers have been best of friends since college and have spent every Christmas and Thanksgiving together. This year, Ariadne decides she doesn’t want to celebrate the holidays due to her break up but manages to get roped in continuously, leading her to meet (and hate) Jess’ new girlfriend. Ariadne soon discovers that Jess has always loved her but this ship seems to have sailed.
This book was a great Christmas read. The author is humorous and witty making it an easy read. I engaged well with the characters. I sympathized with Ariadne in particular, I felt incredibly sorry for her but at the same time, I wanted her to pick herself up and power on. The situation with Laurel is laughable, mainly as it’s a slightly more ridiculous take on a situation we have all been in at least once.
There is a bit of everything in this book, a bit of mystery, bit of magic and lots of Christmas romance. It is the perfect Christmas read. It’s short, it’s sweet and it’s entertaining.
My recommendation: Grab your eggnog and get reading.
