Publisher's Summary

The instant New York Times best seller

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 best-selling 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 listen will make you believe in the power of wishes and the magic of the holidays.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Enjoyable

The story wasn’t exactly brain candy but was a very enjoyable distraction from the worlds busyness.

Mandrew and Mazey <3

I can’t write enough good things about this book. It was beautiful, captivating, honest and a story of not being afraid to go after what you want. It’s heartwarming, funny, steamy and by the end you’ll be wanting a family just like this book depicts. So many times I could feel like I was there with the characters experiencing what they were and that to me is always a sign of a well written book. The only problem... is now I want more.

Mae gets a redo from the Universe

This audibook gave me the warm fuzzies because it made me feel good and hopeful that some errors in love aren't fatal for relationships. I wish I had the ability to go back and fix a mistake in the past, and this story just made me smile because it was a ground-hog day romance done right. Mae Jones’s family spend every Christmas holiday at a remote cabin in Utah with the Holis Family, her parent’s BF. The families practically grew up together and have so much history. Since they were teenagers, Mae had a crush on Andrew Holis, but all the kids were friend so she never acted on her feelings. On this particular Christmas vacation, Mae made a huge mistake that she fears would hurt Andrew if he found out but the universe granted Mae a reprieve by sending her a few days back. And thus, Mae’s ground hog day/time travel experience begins as she keeps relieving the same day over and over until she learns some cosmic lesson. I loved the growth in Mae. At the beginning of the story, Mae had just moved back home with her parents as her career was floundering. As a character, she felt adrift but as she kept reliving the same day, she gained confidence and insight. This holiday romance was a slow burner but it was sweet and humorous. The added family dynamics, particularly, the siblings was the best part of the book for me. I love holiday times because of the family and this rom-com definitely gave me the feels. The writing was so smooth and the story was relatable that I could envision this as both my family as well as a Christmas holiday movie. It won’t surprise me one bit to see this on Hallmark one day. This one was another winner by Christina Lauren.

I have Heart Eyes !!!

I Loved this story !!! Mazie and Mandrew were the perfect center to a unique and charming blended family Holiday. Her "trips" around Christmas week were hilarious at times and tragic at others. I really enjoyed the little bit of suspense that followed every step and thought Mazie made. The churning struggle discovering her self and her happy along with the deliciously slow simmer of her and Andrew's ever after was just perfect. I will be reading this a few more times before Christmas, I hope you do to. Annnnd .... Patti Murin was fantastic and consistent her voice was so easy to follow and she colored the characters with individual personality !!! My first listen with her and she's my new Favorite !!!
