Gender feels, a pig, and plenty of snacks. What's not to love?

I actually really enjoyed this, but at the same time, I didn't love it as much as I hoped I would. I just feel like the plot could have done with a little more direction. I also found a few inconsistencies in the text that took me out of the story a little.

What happens when your holiday plans go south and you end up with a co-worker you hate? There is a fine line between love and hate and the question is, will they cross this line? I loved how the main characters grow to be more themselves and it was great watching them discover new characteristics of each other. Another thing that I really appreciated in this story, was reading about other gender identities than the ones you usually read in romance, namely a non-binary character.

Holy moly this was soooooooo Christmassy. Like overwhelmingly so. Utterly incomprehensible amounts of cookies were consumed. There was sledding, wreath-making, present-buying, Christmas carols played on the piano, Christmas charades, a Christmas pajama fashion show, decorating the afore-mentioned cookies... thank god for the occasional charcuterie plate the main characters shared between bouts of sex.

All this with a main character who had intended to spend two weeks of holiday alone in an

Sweet Christmas romance

This was a great Christmas read! Colden was the equivalent of the Grinch, wanting to spend her Christmas alone in a cabin in Maine. But when the cabin she was promised is nowhere to be found she stumbles upon an inn. She decides to stay there for the night while she thinks over what to do about her no cabin situation. But suddenly she discovers the inn is run by her work nemesis’ family. Laura and Colden don’t really get along but as Colden becomes stuck at the inn for

Another fun fluff-fest from Chelsea M. Cameron! I planned to read a bunch of fluffy Christmas romances this year and sadly didn't have enough time, but I did manage to squeeze this one in and I'm so happy it is. I feel like Chelsea is the perfect holiday writer since their books are always fluffy, low-conflict and fun, and this one had the cosiest vibes. It's also the first (?) fiction book I've read with a non-binary MC (unless something is slipping my mind) and I enjoyed

this was filled with every cliche that i love and was just really fun to read!
had never read anything from this author before but definitely gonna read more from her in the next year!
great representation and an amazing read for the holidays.
the ending was a bit rushed, and the MC annoyed me sometimes, but those are the only reasons this isn’t a 5 stars. everything else= perfection, and just what i needed this time of year

This is a nice cozy holiday tale with a cute couple, a little bit of angst, an interesting cast of secondary characters and of course Minnie the not-so-miniature pig.

Not just the sweet holiday romance I was expecting.
Kudos to Cameron for penning a cute, fun, but thought provoking romance with diverse queer rep.
Definitely my favourite Cameron book so far.
