Christmas Book Review: So This is Christmas


Finley's spent the last half of the year at boarding school in Connecticut - but she's floundering at school and she's unsure if she wants to stay. Her small town Ohio is not how she left it - including her best friend and her ex-boyfriend, her parents, and how she feels being at home.  

Plus there's the problem where she changed the town's website to impress the snooty people at her boarding school. That backfires when one of her classmates arrives at her Grandmother's inn expecting a quaint hometown Christmas to discover that the town of Christmas isn't exactly what is advertised. 

Finley's not sure where she's going - and where she fits in. Things are hard everywhere. Could Christmas magic show her the right path?
My Thoughts: I love Christmas Romances and I'm happy they are coming back to the YA world. I was really excited to read this one and it was cute. It did take me a little bit to get into it. I loved the Christmas adventures Finley cooked up for Arthur and his aunt - from the reindeer adventure to the parade. I loved the banter between Arthur and Finley. Finely and her family kept a lot of secrets from each other that all came spilling out. Lots of talk about food - I loved the kitchen chef. I really enjoyed Finley's relationship with Ayisha. I loved Grandma Jo. I'm so curious to see how everything turns out in the sequel.

Cover Thoughts: Cute
