Hello Lovelies and Happy Wednesday! Welcome to my Blog Tour Stop for Christmas Ever After by Karen Schaler hosted by TLC Book Tours.
This book was such a joy to read and absolutely warmed my heart. I love Christmas movies, but haven’t read too many Christmas themed books. After reading this delightful gem, well, I’m definitely going to add more on my TBR during the holiday season.
From Karen Schaler, the writer of the Netflix phenomenon A Christmas Prince and Hallmark’s Christmas Camp comes this new heartwarming holiday romance. Mamma Mia meets The Bachelorette in Christmas Ever After…

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…
Bonus Content: Christmas Ever After includes delicious original Christmas recipes and fun holiday crafts and activities.
A delightfully romantic, funny, and heartwarming story!
A delightful, fun, sweet, and utterly enthralling read that had me hooked from the start! This book made me smile and oh the feels… Really enjoyed this Christmas gem.
I love discovering new authors and falling in love with their writing and that’s exactly what happened here. Schaler’s storytelling is engaging and mesmeric. Christmas Ever After is such a wonderful story and I seriously cannot stop gushing about it. I love the premise of the story and the plot has everything that made me smile, laugh, swoon, and feel all the feels that I just wanted to cuddle someone forever! The characters are definitely intriguing and fun. Riley Reynolds is pretty much a grinch when it comes to Christmas so watching how she reacts and changed throughout the story was really interesting and enjoyable. Luke is totally swoonworthy in my opinion and I loved that he was really funny too. I also really enjoyed all the Christmassy parts from the decorations to the food and songs. This book is just a bundle of joy and laughter with the right dose of drama and romance that will have you turning the pages.
I absolutely loved reading Christmas Ever After and just can’t recommend it enough! It’s lighthearted, entertaining, romantic, funny, sweet, and such a wonderfully heartwarming book. Karen Schaler is an amazing storyteller and writer and I’m excited to read more from her.
I received a free copy of this book from the author and publisher for participating in a blog tour hosted by TLC Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
