"An absolutely perfect holiday hug."—New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren

"This feel-good novel brings tidings of joy."—Woman's World

A one-of-a-kind Christmas market offers holiday magic in the new romance from the author of The Kindred Spirits Supper Club.

With a name like Astra Noel Snow, holiday spirit isn’t just a seasonal specialty—it’s a way of life. But after a stinging divorce, Astra’s yearly trip to the Milwaukee Christmas market takes on a whole new meaning. She’s ready to eat, drink, and be merry, especially with the handsome stranger who saves the best kringle for her at his family bakery.

For Jack Clausen, the Julemarked with its snowy lights and charming shops stays the same, while the world outside the joyful street changes, magically leaping from one December to the next every four weeks. He’s never minded living this charmed existence until Astra shows him the life he’s been missing outside of the festive red brick alley.

After a swoon-worthy series of dates, some Yuletide magic, and the unexpected glow of new love, Astra and Jack must decide whether this relationship can weather all seasons or if what they’re feeling is as ephemeral as marshmallows in a mug of hot cocoa.

"The story of Astra Noel Snow and Jack Clausen has everything a magical Christmas story needs: a compelling protagonist, a handsome love interest, a bit of mystery and of course magic."—USA Today

Don't waste your money

The story was long and very boring. The time jumping made no sense. Complete waste of money.
