Rating: ★★★★ 1/2
In a Holidaze meets Groundhogs Day meets holiday rom com. Ah I loved In a Holidaze so much going back and reliving everything Mae had done trying to figure out what she needs to do in order to get things right and to stop reliving their holiday vacation. It was a nice fresh storyline with a holiday twist.
I am not the Hallmark holiday movies kind of girl, I know, I know some of you might have gasped at that and whispered, “What is wrong with you?” So, I thought maybe I might not like this story, but I am so glad I was wrong on that and loved it. The big family fun and shenanigans was such a nice touch.
I was rooting for Mae and Andrew (her childhood crush) and had a feeling he had to do with what she had to get right. Definitely a cute holiday read!

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.
