THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER <br> <br> 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. <br> <br> 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.<br> <br> 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. <br> <br> 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.<br> <br> 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.

Includes an excerpt from the next Christina Lauren novel.

Kirkus Book Review

A Christmas wish leads to a Christmas nightmare when one woman gets stuck reliving the holiday season, Groundhog Day style. Things aren't going as planned for Maelyn Jones. At the age of 26, she's living with her mom and stepdad, she's stuck in a dead-end job, and, perhaps most important, she just had an eggnog-filled holiday hookup with Theo Hollis, her family friend and the brother of her unrequited lifelong crush, Andrew Hollis. Maelyn's spent years waiting for Andrew to notice her as more than a friend, but now she knows she's screwed things up for good by kissing his brother. The only thing that's going perfectly in her life is the lovely Park City cabin where her family, Theo and Andrew's family, and her parents' other college friends get together every Christmas. But then, on the last day of their vacation, Theo and Andrew's parents announce that they're selling the cabin. On the drive to the airport, Maelyn miserably wishes that she could find out what would make her happy…and suddenly, she's back on the plane to the cabin, pre-Christmas, about to live the whole week over again. With another (and another and another) chance to make things right, will she be able to finally tell Andrew how she feels and discover real happiness? Lauren--the author team behind The Honey-Don't List (2020) and countless other romantic comedies--is as reliable as ever with this cheery holiday outing. Down-on-her-luck Maelyn is a likable protagonist, and it's easy to relate to her desire to fix her life (even if most readers don't have the benefit of time travel). Her conversations with Andrew are adorably banter-filled, and her relationship with her parents' friend Benny, an aging, wacky stoner, is sweetly charming. A classic plot plus Lauren's trademark snark and steam add up to a winning rom-com full of heart and holiday cheer. Copyright (c) Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
