THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 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.

"Another fun read by Christina Lauren! What if... we all just went for it the first time around. Happy holidays!"
"Such a fun read. I loved all the characters; if you like, it happened one summer. I think you would love this; it's childhood friends to lovers, which has to be one of my favorites theres something so wholesome about it and I think it’s because you get to experience the main characters young and almost always get to experience there family’s and in this case the close family friends to which makes the story feel so realistic and then the Christmas holiday vibes on top of that just made it all vary cozy the romance and the tension was great I do wish we got a bit more of them in there past and honestly that’s not even a compliment I’m just greedy and wanted more lol bc I love them I didn’t mind the jumping timelines and the whole Groundhog Day thing because it was an amusing aspect I was scared it was going to be too repetitive it obviously is bc that’s the whole point but it didn't get annoying to me this book put me in the festive mood."
