Cute, wholesome romance for those who have a strong affinity for rom-com movies especially the ones that star Tom Hanks.

The story is about a lonely writer, obsessed with movies, who falls for an actor (extremely obviously modeled on Chris Pratt) who films a rom-com in her town.

It also sets up a spin off book about her best friend that looks like she’ll be falling in love with s thinly veiled Luke from Gilmore Girls.

It’s 100% predictable and sweet but that’s ok. My only real beef is that it’s very repetitive even within its own framework.… (mais)

Abandoned at 50%

I hated everything about this. It just all felt weirdly stiff and old fashioned and generally awkward. The phrasing was repetitive (if I ever read the phrase “do one thing that scares you” again I’ll scream. Didn’t like the main characters at all - the friends were more compelling.

Laurel lives in the city, is the social media manager for a tourism magazine, and also runs the social media for her sister’s farm. Through an unintentional misunderstanding, her new boss thinks she owns the farm. Unwilling to come clean with her boss and jeopardize her job, she never corrects the misunderstanding. Now it’s nearly Christmas, her boss is having an emotional breakdown due to his wife leaving him, and he sort of invites himself to see Laurel in action on her farm, for “Christmas Eve Eve.” Now, she must enlist the help of her sister and her sister’s family to go along with the charade. To further complicate matters, Max, a man she has reason to detest but who is a friend of her brother-in-law, is also there. And then, a super snowstorm hits, and no one can leave until after Christmas. If you have watched the movie Christmas in Connecticut, you will see a few similar themes, but little is the same, other than someone trying to be pretend to be something she is not. The characters are interesting, especially the boss. Readers will guess how the story ends, after all, it is a Christmas romance, but there are enough struggles in keeping up the pretense and in Max and Laurel coming to terms with each other to keep readers invested in the story.… (mais)

A cute read to kick off the holiday season. Laurel works at an Ohio magazine, penning a column about her simple and crafty farm life, complete with goats. The only problem is that life actually belongs to her twin sister. When her boss Gilbert is dumped right at Christmas, her twin Holly (and hubby) agree to let him come to their Christmas Eve Eve dinner and continue Laurel's subterfuge. Her brother-in-law even convinces his friend Max to stand in as Laurel's husband. A snowstorm forces the charade to last much longer--chaos and fun ensue.… (mais)
