This year, if Hadley wrote her dream Christmas list, it would go something like this:

1. Spend every waking – and sleeping – moment with her incredibly gorgeous boyfriend, Will.

2. Figure out what’s been bugging him lately. Yes, going away to college has been tough…but it’s time they reconnected.

3. Enjoy a sparkling Christmas in New York City, gazing at the Rockefeller tree, going ice skating, and drinking steaming mugs of cocoa in Central Park.

So, driving off to spend Christmas in a rustic cabin in the woods wasn’t exactly the plan. But when it comes to her irresistible, and at times, impossible boyfriend, nothing’s ever that simple. And as fantasies of an icy Times Square are replaced by a clumsily decorated tree, making snowmen and the warmth of a log fire, Hadley feels herself falling in love all over again.

Except does Will have something to tell her that could change Hadley’s happily-ever-after Christmas dreams into a not-so-winter wonderland after all?

Don't miss this festive sequel novella to This Summer

Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. 



Just in time for the holidays, this fast-paced, romantic novella helps get you in the holiday spirit. It’s the perfect book to curl up by the fire with & pretend you are in a snug cabin surrounded by snow. Just like the characters on the pages.

Hadley has just finished a stressful semester at college in New York City and wants nothing more than to spend her holiday break with her boyfriend, Will. She dreams of sleeping in and exploring the magical place that is NYC during the Christmas season. Of course, when their plans turn into a rustic cabin deep in the snow, in Upstate New York, Hadley is determined to make the best of it. Complete with a fresh cut Christmas tree, decorations, and the perfect Christmas dinner, Hadley & Will spend a magical and unforgettable holiday together.

I enjoyed this little glimpse in the lives of Hadley and Will. I found the pace of the novella to be perfect & the reality of their relationship, with all of its ups and downs, to be believable. I was able to connect with Hadley in her love of the Christmas season and wanting things to be perfect when it comes to the decorations and the meal.

If you’re looking for a quick read to help get you in the holiday spirit, This Christmas is just the book for you. But hurry! Christmas is less than a week away! 🙂

Four stars.

Happy reading!
