This year, if Hadley wrote her dream Christmas list, it would go something like this:

1. Spend every waking – and sleeping – moment with her incredibly gorgeous boyfriend, Will.

2. Figure out what’s been bugging him lately. Yes, going away to college has been tough…but it’s time they reconnected.

3. Enjoy a sparkling Christmas in New York City, gazing at the Rockefeller tree, going ice skating, and drinking steaming mugs of cocoa in Central Park.

So, driving off to spend Christmas in a rustic cabin in the woods wasn’t exactly the plan. But when it comes to her irresistible, and at times, impossible boyfriend, nothing’s ever that simple. And as fantasies of an icy Times Square are replaced by a clumsily decorated tree, making snowmen and the warmth of a log fire, Hadley feels herself falling in love all over again.

Except does Will have something to tell her that could change Hadley’s happily-ever-after Christmas dreams into a not-so-winter wonderland after all?

Don't miss this festive sequel novella to This Summer.

Here Are My Thoughts

Check out my review of This Summer (This Summer #1)

This Christmas was a novella that takes place after This Summer. I enjoyed This Summer so I was curious to read This Christmas. This novel picks up the Christmas after This Summer, so Hadley and Will have been dating for a little while. They’re off to spend Christmas in a rustic cabin. I thought that This Christmas was an incredibly cute winter read. It wasn’t, however, what I would consider fluffy. There was a bit of drama and Will was acting weird for a while, which of course, was concerning for their still-new relationship. I enjoyed how festive Hadley was. It was absolutely adorable. Will was a bit broody for the holidays, but all turned out well. It was a nice little peak back at the couple of This Summer that got me in the holiday spirit got me excited for whatever Katlyn Duncan writes next.
