Christmas Ever After by Karen Schaler
While promoting her next novel, a Christmas love story, author Riley Reynolds is caught off guard when she’s asked during a live national television interview how she can write about romance when she still hasn’t found “the one” herself. Scrambling for an answer, she quickly answers that she has had great love in her past and that love inspired her novels.
Little does she know that this one offhanded remark will turn her world upside down. Three of her ex-boyfriends see the interview, and each, believing she’s talking about him, shows up for her Christmas Camp book event at the Christmas Lake Lodge, determined to rewrite his happily-ever-after with her!
Over the festive weekend, Riley’s old boyfriends compete to win her heart, pulling out all the stops while planning the most romantic Christmas dates on the planet. Despite herself, Riley starts falling for each guy— again—but for different reasons. As Riley revisits each relationship and discovers more about herself, she embraces the magic of Christmas and finally finds true love and her own Christmas ever after...

I don’t think I’ve ever read a more Christmassy book in my life! It’s chock full of everything festive and then some. It’s also got a romance-y version of the three ghosts of Christmas, except there are previous boyfriends and they are all lovely – not mean in the slightest. It was a magical tale and I defy anyone not be in the Christmas spirit by the time they get to the end of it.
However, there is an underlying message and that is how not communicating one’s feelings can lead to misunderstandings and heartbreak further down the line.
