Holiday Romance by Catherine Walsh book tour | AD
I love this time of year when all the festive romances hit the shelves and Holiday Romance looked like it was going to deliver on everything I love about a good Christmas book. Which is why I jumped on board when the opportunity came up to join the book tour.
She’s meant to be catching flights, not catching feelings…
Molly and Andrew are just trying to get home to Ireland for the holidays, when a freak snowstorm grounds their flight.
Nothing romantic has ever happened between them: they’re friends and that’s all. But once a year, for the last ten years, Molly has spent seven hours and fifteen minutes sitting next to Andrew on the last flight before Christmas from Chicago to Dublin, drinking terrible airplane wine and catching up on each other’s lives. In spite of all the ways the two friends are different, it’s the holiday tradition neither of them has ever wanted to give up.
Molly isn’t that bothered by Christmas, but—in yet another way they’re total opposites—Andrew is a full-on fanatic for the festive season and she knows how much getting back to Ireland means to him. So, instead of doing the sane thing and just celebrating the holidays together in America, she does the stupid thing. The irrational thing. She vows to get him home. And in time for his mam’s famous Christmas dinner.
The clock is ticking. But Molly always has a plan. And—as long as the highly-specific combination of taxis, planes, boats, and trains all run on time—it can’t possibly go wrong.
What she doesn’t know is that, as the snow falls over the city and over the heads of two friends who are sure they’re not meant to be together, the universe might just have a plan of its own…
A totally gorgeous and escapist friends-to-lovers festive romance with a swoon-worthy hero. Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Mhairi McFarlane, and Christina Lauren.
WHAT I THOUGHT ABOUT HOLIDAY ROMANCE
This is everything I love about a holiday romance book, and it does exactly what it says on the tin! Molly and Andrew have been friends for 10 years now, catching the same flight home from Chicago to Ireland for Christmas every year. This year something goes wrong, and their flight is cancelled at the last minute. Festive Grinch Molly makes it her mission to get Christmas loving Andrew home for the holidays via a lot of drama and fun along the way. There even seems to be a little bit of Holiday Romance too….
This was so well written, and I was in love with this book by the end of the prologue. Both Molly and Andrew are brilliant characters and I love the contrasts in personalities. I particularly loved the little flash backs to previous flights over the years as an insight to how their friendship has progressed.
Holiday Romance is an absolute delight of a book.
