Fool Me Twice At Christmas by Camilla Isley **Book Review**

Happy Sunday all!

I am so excited it is the beginning of holiday reading season! 84 days until Christmas have you done any shopping yet? I haven’t even thought about it, but yikes that’s close!✨

Fool Me Twice at Christmas 🎄

Fool Me Twice at Christmas

There are two types of relationships: fake and real.

Chuck and Kate’s used to be real, oh-so-real. But after she broke his heart four months ago, leaving him, it became all just pretense for the sake of their entwined families.

With parents who are best friends and business partners, it’s not easy for Chuck and Kate to announce they’ve split up. But with the holidays looming over them, they can no longer keep pretending.

They head home for Christmas, determined to tell the truth—and end up accidentally engaged instead. The more they try to pull apart, the more the Universe seems to push them back together, shortening the road to the altar. And when just-for-show kisses stir up forgotten feelings, things get even more complicated.

Now, with the midnight hour approaching, will Chuck and Kate’s relationship turn out to be fake or real?

My Thoughts

This was the perfect book to kick off my Christmas reading season with! A combo of two of my favorite tropes the fake relationship and a second chance romance. Kate and Chuck broke up four months ago but they have decided not to share this with their family until Christmas. However when they are spending Christmas with their families it never seems to be the right time and then it gets even messier. The story is told from the alternating perspectives of both Chuck and Kate and I thought this was perfect I loved getting into the head of both of these characters and knowing where they were coming from. Both of their parents were a bit overly invested in their relationship and very pushy. I could understand why Kate and Chuck were hesitant to share the news with their parents that the relationship was over. I consider this book Christmas light. The Christmas vibe is in the background but it is not a huge part of the story the main focus is on the relationship between Kate and Chuck. A super sweet romcom that put a huge smile on my face and put me in a festive mood!
