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.


  • Great book!

    This book turned out to be so engrossing,and different than anything I’ve ever read before. I loved the characters, couldn’t wait to see how it ended and then was sorry it did! Loved it!

    Not my usual genre but I adored this book. It was perfect during the rush and hubbub of the holidays when it’s hard to focus on much else and yet—this book had my full attention for the two days it took to read.
  • Predictable but Fun

    Total fluff and predictability, but I couldn’t put it down. A perfect light, holiday read. A bit “steamier” than I’d normally read.

    So cute! Not usually into romance novels but this light and funny read was just what I needed after a string of bad books. Read it in a day! Although it seemed like the time loop plot wasn’t actually resolved, it’s still a solid 7/10. I can’t believe this hasn’t been picked up as a major Christmas movie!!
  • Ugh

    This book was an interesting start. I was slightly confused at first since I heard the audiobook and had to rewind a few times just to get the details, milt-tasking wasn’t good, but overall love the story line. I went in not knowing the story line. I just saw a ton of people reading it and went into it. I love how she had to learn her happiness and learned to speak up for herself!

  • More than I expected

    By ShannaNevil
    I got this in my “book of the month” subscription and I am so HAPPY I did. This is one of the stories where you feel everything they are feeling. It left me crying and smiling right along with the main character. I really hope Christina Lauren continues the families story. I would love to see more Theo and Benny.
