Sweet coming of age romantic enemies to lovers comedy!
Shoshanna works at the mall in a cute bookstore called Once Upon and during the Christmas holiday of all times.
<my husband is Jewish and worked in retail for 20+ years and I’m lucky he lets my play Christmas music since he married a goyem☺️ He actually would volunteer to work during Christmas so others could take the time off.>
We get to glimpse a week in her life when she meets a new co-worker named Jake who does not warm to her easily. A few other disasters happen one after another due to her meddling and interfering which in turn helps her to grow and learn.
It’s hard learning some lessons the hard way but she rallies and her relationships get stronger despite the mistakes.
The romance that happens takes me by surprise and is super cute and I love how it grows. I’m a foodie and my guy cooks for me. ♥️🎄
I personally have been going through some stressful work things this week and this quote helped me. Sometimes your health and your people mean more than other things that don’t happen.
“But Myra is right, and my moms are right. I am smart and caring, and I have incredible people in my life. And as long as those things are true, I’ll be okay. I’ll be more than okay.”
Can I just agree with this thought Shoshanna?
“The music blasts even louder here, currently playing Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You,”which always gives me the urge to watch Love, Actually, which always makes me 10 percent bitter there’s not an epic Hanukkah romance movie.” 🎄🕎
My sister in law and I always talk about this. I love Hallmark movies but any attempt at a Hanukkah movie is so white washed it’s gross and offensive.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I recommend for those who love coming of age romance. These characters are so cute and the whole staff of the bookstore is fun to get to know.
