Publisher's Summary

If only life was a cheesy holiday movie - unfortunately for Aspen Harris, her life doesn’t even come close. 

Finding herself unemployed just before the holidays, Aspen has no choice but to move back home into her parents’ house. And that means leaving behind her best friend Gabriel and all her dreams of someday owning her own chocolate shop. So when Gabe suggests she come to Silver Bell Falls to spend the holidays with his family, it seems like the perfect distraction. 

What’s so great about holiday movies? Don’t people realize that living in an actual Christmas town is anything but magical? 

Every year, Gabriel Andrews goes home to Silver Bell Falls to help his father run the family Christmas tree lot. When Aspen tells him she has to move to the other side of the country after losing her job, he suggests she come home with him for the holidays. It’s the perfect way to spend as much time together as possible before a whole country separates them. 

But this is Silver Bell Falls at Christmas time - between a mother with matchmaking tendencies, tight living quarters, and far too much chocolate, it doesn’t take very long for life to start imitating art.

The narrator...

The narrator just really got on my nerves. She sounded like a young teenager reading. Idk what it was but not good. Story was great though. I’ve read or listened to better but this was a good one too.

Makes Hallmark Movies Look Like Shakespeare

I was looking for an indulgent Christmas read but just could handle this. It is missing the wonderfully festive and rich descriptions of a cute little Christmas town (it has a sign that plays music, but what else?!) or charming Christmas characters (everyone is pretty flat). Plus the whole thing is super sexist, the women do women's work while the men do men's work and resist the urge to "get handsy" which seems to be a constant theme; handsy relatives, handsy bosses, gross! (Also, potentially triggering to someone who was just looking for a light and pleasant read without trivializing sexual harassment and assault). Even the chocolate that the main character makes isn't described in a way that is exciting, and I was worried listening to a book about a chocolatier would make me crave chocolate (it doesn't). The writing is really basic and repetitive (the same phrases are literally repeated over and over). There are whole sections where important details are missing, then other details that are just boring. I could handle predictable, in fact that is what I was going for, but this was just really low quality.
