Ah, so this year, I have seriously been getting into holiday romance reads.
I do feel that it helps bring in the festive spirit for the season and certainly enjoy reading them.
My one question is though: why does it seems like in any of these holiday romances that a parent dies in the past for the main character or the love interest?
Baffles my mind when I think about it.
Anyways, here are some of my favorite holiday reads here.

Nick and Noel’s Christmas Playlist
This hit all the right places in my heart. It’s been a while since I have read a wholesome romance that touches grief, love, power of friendship and family and dealing with misconceptions of people. This is a story of childhood friendship that blossoms into romance and a little second chance romance between the main characters.
Nick comes home from a tour of duty to find that his girlfriend Amber dumps him hard at her front doorstep. Luckily for Nick, he had his close friends help pick him back up. One of those friends is Noel who he has been best friends with since childhood. To get back at Amber, Noel offered to be his fake girlfriend to get her jealous. Little did they know that they were strong feelings for one another that they have buried deep inside.

A Christmas story that is based off the famous movie Groundhog Day in a friends to lover trope.
Mae is having to relive Christmas week over and over again. After wishing that she can redo the week, she was given a chance after a car accident in the town. There she redoes the week over and over again attempting to make the week prefect.
But along the way realizes that she was looking to love in the wrong places and that happiest is who you are with and not where you are at.

I agree, the parents always seem to be dead! Mostly in a car accident together. Looks like a fun list! I’ve only read In a Holidaze.
