From the author of the smash hit Netflix romcom The Kissing Booth!
Eloise, a self-confessed Christmas obsessive, can’t wait for the big day. Devoted to her Michael Bublé playlist, she’s organising the school nativity play and even her gorgeous Grinch of a neighbour, James, can’t get her down.
Her workaholic twin sister, Cara, on the other hand, plans to work over the holiday – and figure out what secrets her seemingly-perfect boyfriend George might be keeping from her.
The sisters used to be close but since Cara moved to London, everything’s been different. Only, Eloise isn’t giving up just yet, and with a white Christmas on the cards, Cara can’t fail to be moved by the magic of the season … can she?
I can’t believe I forgot to write a review for this urgh! Sorry >-<
Back in December and January I read quite some Christmas books. I love Christmas and this is a book from the author of the Netflix romcom The Kissing Booth, which I enjoyed. But this book felt just average to me (although I would totally see a movie of it! So, finger crossed Netflix adapts it!).
It’s a cute and quick read but I had some problems distinguishing the two main characters? It took me some time to fully assimilate who was who and being a short read, that’s not a good thing.
Other than that it was a very cute and sweet Christmas book with a side of romance – which I was all in for-, the importance of family and sisterhood. I became very invested in the characters’ adventures through the Christmas days and the love that started to bloom.
I also really enjoyed the format of the novel – counting the days – it felt super exciting to me. Overall this is a quick easy Christmassy read that I would love to see on screen!
