Every time I open a Jenny Holiday contemporary I’m reminded of how much I like her books.
So This Is Christmas really got me going with:
❄️An uptight hero—Matteo Benz, an equerry to the king of Eldovia—who wears three piece suits on the daily, tries to be professional at all times, but is very much annoyed by the heroine. To quote the book: “He looked like a millennial dressed up as a boomer.”
❄️A business-oriented heroine—American Cara Delaney who’s visiting Eldovia & serving as a business consultant for the King. She & her job immediately rub Matteo the wrong way.
❄️Both leads recognizing that there’s more to the other lead than their initial impression & slowwwwly coming to call each other by their first names.
❄️a fun glimpse back at previous characters
❄️Holiday’s deft hand with emotions & nuance & pacing.
I feel like I’ve been really blessed on the holiday romance reading front this year & this is another adorable book that warmed my heart. If you haven’t checked out Holiday’s Eldovia series yet I really recommend it—especially book 2 which is a fave.
4.5 ⭐️. Out now!
CW: heroine’s mother forced out of home after unwed pregnancy. Cara assaulted at 16 & she fended him off using her high heel shoe.
Give me that HEA, please.
