Well, I succumbed to the hype. A year late, but I’ve now read my second Christina Lauren book and I enjoyed it. It was cute and while I didn’t think it needed the Groundhog’s Day plot line, I did enjoy the holiday theme and the relatable characters.
Maelyn and her family spend the holidays in a cabin with her parents’ college friends and their children every year. Mae is secretly obsessed with Andrew, one of her contemporaries in the group. When she gets a little too drunk and hooks up with his brother one year, she has massive regrets. But luckily for her, the universe gives her a do over… or 5. She keeps waking up to relive the trip until she decides to throw caution to the wind and go for what she really wants. It doesn’t exactly go as she expected.
I liked the plot and the characters, (although how many women with no real direction or joy in life needing a man to save her do we need as MCs?) but I would have preferred it told as a straightforward story, I think. The holiday traditions of the group were fun and festive though. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
If you could go back and relive a day in your life until you got it right, would you?
