The Holiday Trap
The Holiday Trap
by Roan Parrish
This was a delightful story yet very full of family and life dramatics. That necessitated a house swap from Maine to New Orleans. I love a house swap story my fav holiday movie The Holiday which was more about a change of scenery and life around the holidays than the actual holiday.
Similar to that these two characters both were feeling heartache and stifled by parents. Switching places they were able to meet someone they never would have met otherwise. Luckily they both had a mutual friend that suggested the swap so they are all now a huge connected found family. I loved a LGBTQ found family.
I love when characters have baggage they have to unpack, sort and decide to keep or get rid of. Not everything is bad and we are all products of our upbringing.
Greta’s family is Jewish and I loved how her new friends made her welcome by making latkes and kugel.
❓ What is your favorite holiday movie? We need more Jewish rom coms. They should turn some of the recent books into movies cause their writers still make it about Christmas.
For fans of Alexandria Bellefleur and Alexis Hall comes a charming, hilarious, and heartwarming LGBTQIA+ romcom about two separate couples finding love over the holidays from acclaimed author Roan Parrish!
Greta Russakoff loves her tight-knit family and tiny Maine hometown, even if they don’t always understand what it’s like to be a lesbian living in such a small world. She desperately needs space to figure out who she is.
Truman Belvedere has just had his heart crushed into a million pieces when he learned that his boyfriend of almost a year has a secret life that includes a husband and a daughter. Reeling from this discovery, all he wants is a place to lick his wounds far, far away from New Orleans.
Enter Greta and Truman’s mutual friend, Ramona, who facilitates a month-long house swap. Over the winter holidays, each of them will have a chance to try on a new life…and maybe fall in love with the perfect partner of their dreams. But all holidays must come to an end, and eventually Greta and Truman will have to decide whether the love they each found so far from home is worth fighting for.
