I love this book Holidate was so much fun to write It made me smile, laugh and tear up I hope you give it a chance This is my fave book I ve written all year 5 Star Review of Holidate Dating 3 by Monica Murphy What s not to love Christmas is the most magical time of the year It s a time to reflect and celebrate life.Candice Gaines is my kind of woman, just like me she loves anything to do with Christmas.Charlie Sullivan on the other hand is just like my husband and dislikes Christmas Ironically his family owns a Christmas Tree Farm.When circumstances bring Candice and Charlie together attending some holiday events, Candice hopes to change his mind about the festive season.Can these two opposites come together and forge a path together Monica Murphy is a relatively new author to me and I find myself being drawn in to the stories she weaves.I really liked Candice, she is someone that I could easily be friends with There is something about Charlie that drew me to him, he is most certainly swoon worthy and I loved the slow burn of the relationship as it built with Candice This is a sweet, romantic, love story that ticked the boxes for me Extremely well written this story will take you on a fabulous journey that will leave you with a smile on your face. Book Received in Exchange for Honest Opinion Review As soon as fall rolls around I become a sucker for holiday romances, I just can t help myself I knew I wanted to read Holidate as soon as I saw the cover Romance, a Christmas tree farm, grinchy man, heart of gold girlyes I will take a one way ticket please And this book did not disappoint It had all the cheesy ness of a Hallmark movie and all the tender moments of a Monica Murphy novel, a recipe for endless swooning.First off, I am obsessed with this plot A meddlesome mother arranges Candice to help her son network and socialize within the communityover the course of these parties and events, Candice and Charlie fall in love Insert all the heart eyed emojis Candice is wholesome and good to a fault She is just a good girl, who wants to give back and do her mom s memory justice In comparison, Charlie is harsh edges, unrefined, and would rather spend his days surrounded by trees than people He is a rugged outdoors man but don t let that fool you, he can turn on the charm and clean up really well when he wants to.These two had so many giggle worthy moments, I found myself blushing and laughing out loud throughout the course of the story Candice and Charlie are both stubborn and determined Charlie doesn t want Candice s help and Candice is determined to help Charlie, what could possibly go wrong Their chemistry was off the charts, talk about a slow burn, I thought I was going to die before they finally kissed And while the romance doesn t go past kissing, all the tender moments and heartfelt words make the story that much better These characters just get each other And I love it when that happens, the characters are relatable and I felt like I was in the middle of every Christmas tree lighting ceremony with them This book truly captured the magic of Christmas and in doing so, the love story captured my heart I will definitely re read this every year at Christmas time. So cute and sweet with a push and pull between the hero and heroine that I loved This is the perfect get you in the mood for the holidays story I didn t want it to end 3 Candice Gaines Loves Christmas Not Only Does She Bask In The Twinkling Lights, Sing Christmas Carols And Go Crazy With The Decorations, She S Also In The Giving Spirit, Donating Much Of Her Time And Wealth To Various Charities In The Local Area Charlie Sullivan Despises Christmas Though It Keeps His Family Afloat, Considering They Own Sullivan Family Christmas Tree Farm, The Main Provider For Christmas Trees On The Monterey Peninsula He D Much Rather Work Among The Trees Versus Have To Deal With People But Charlie S Parents Are Taking On Philanthropic Projects And As Their Oldest Child, They Want Him To Be Their Official Public Representative He Just Has To Play Nice And Convince Everyone He S Not A Total Holiday Hater When Charlie S Mom Asks Candice To Accompany Him To A Variety Of Holiday Parties And Events, She Reluctantly Agrees She Thinks Charlie Is A Big Ol Grinch, But Is Determined To Change His Mindset And Help Him Spread Christmas Cheer Charlie Finds Candice Too Chatty, Too Sweet, Too Much Do People Like Her Really Exist Why Yes, Yes They Do The Time They Spend Together Along With A Few Kisses Under The Mistletoe The They Start To Like Each Other Hopefully Charlie Can Convince Candice He Doesn T Have A Heart That S Two Sizes Too Small Before The Ball Drops On New Year S Eve 4.5 starsI have adored this world that Monica Murphy has created This is a standalone, but shares characters with Save the Date and Fake Date There is just something about these warm, gushy romances that makes me want of them Candice and Charlie s story is no exception I loved Candice s innocence and sweetness She just likes people and likes to make them happy And Charlie He s like finding a diamond in an old mine Just need to polish him up a little bit.The understated chemistry they have had me feeling all swoony The glances, touches and kisses Yes, please I ll add this I m not really into holiday romances But I read this because it s Monica and it s in the series and I LOVED it.
