✱✱Book Review✱✱ Holidays in Blue by Eve Morton

Holidays in Blue

by Eve Morton 

Sometimes it takes a little ice to discover a whole lot of heat.

Cosmin Tessler is going home for Christmas. Eric Campbell is too.

Neither expected a homecoming quite like this.

When Cosmin Tessler’s radio show is canceled and Eric Campbell’s acting jobs dry up, they find themselves unexpectedly back in their old Toronto neighborhood…and back in each other’s lives years after they’d gone their separate ways. With a series of failed relationships and one ill-advised marriage behind them, both believe their chance for love has come and gone.

Luck, in the form of a massive ice storm, throws the former neighbors together again and they find themselves stranded, alone, for Christmas. Despite their difference in age, long-ago crushes and undeniable attraction prove too much to resist. But when the ice melts, only time will tell if their burgeoning romance will become just another missed chance—or a love story whose time has finally come.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

I somehow ended up reading a few more holiday romances than I usually do. They tend to be a bit too similar to each other and while I'm all for holiday cheer, it can get to be too sugary sweet. So, color me completely surprised by Holidays in Blue. It is a holiday romance as the title suggests, but this story could have taken place during any part of the year. Yes, the snowstorm is what forces the proximity, but again, anything that forced the two together would've worked. What impressed me most was the depth of this one. It's about so much more than just another holiday romance. I won't go into it all to avoid spoilers, but I will say that Eve Morton has penned a story that gets you right in the feels. The characters are wonderfully flawed and I was surprised at the growth even in a relatively quick read. This one is most definitely not just another holiday romance, and it may be my first read by this author, but it won't be my last.
