I loved this collection of holiday love stories. I will talk about each of the four stories for my review.
Snow and Mistletoe: In this story, Amalie goes on a road trip to get home for Christmas with some other students from her school. They weren’t friends before they met at a snowed in airport in Colorado, but they formed a relationship after being trapped in a car together for the ride to California.
Working in a Winter Wonderland: Maxine get a job at a department store so she can buy a dress for her best friend’s New Year’s Eve party. She finds love in an unexpected place.
The Magi’s Gifts: Kelsey struggles to fit in with her wealthy friends. She wants to buy her boyfriend the best Christmas gift, so she has to make some sacrifices.
Grounded: Leigh is grounded in Atlanta so she can’t travel to Florida to spend the holidays with family friends. She meets an old friend, Harper, in the airport and they become reacquainted with an I Spy/Scavenger Hunt game.
Even though these were all short stories, the characters were well developed. I felt like I knew them by the end of the stories. The endings were predictable but they were such warm endings, which spoke to the holiday spirit of the stories. I highly recommend this book for some festive teen romances!
