Are you looking for a fun holiday romance?  In a Holidaze would be perfect for you.

 Mae Jones spends her Christmas every year at a cabin in Colorado with her family, and her parent’s college friends.  Together they are all like one big happy family . . . except that Mae has an unrequited crush on Andrew, the son of her parents’ best friends.  Mae seems struck in a rut with work and love and unable to move herself beyond her insecurities to make a change.  On the way to the airport at the end of the vacation, her family is involved in an accident.  Mae wakes up on the plane heading TO the holiday vacation as if it and the accident never happened.  Mae ends up repeating her holiday again, and again.  What is going wrong that is causing this holiday to repeat?  How can Mae make a change to improve things?

 I listened to this on audiobook and Patti Murin was a great narrator.  It was a great story and I looked forward to listening to the audiobook every day.  I thought this story was very fun, filled with great humor.  It was a Christmas version of Groundhogs day.  I love how Mae learned how to go for the things she wanted in life, including love.  The comedy and romance were great in this novel.  This is more on the steamy side of a romance novel.  The ending was perfect.  I just wish I could have kept reading more!

 Favorite Quotes:

“I ask the universe, simply: Can you show me what will make me happy?”

 “It never occurred to me that you might be mine.”

 Overall, In a Holidaze is a humorous Christmas romance that is perfect for the season.
