The Holiday Treatment by Elle Spencer

 

⭐⭐⭐⭐☆

This is a light, fluffy, feel-good, delightfully cheesy romcom. 

Holly (Holiday – yes, that’s her name. isn’t it terribly cute?) is the writer of super-successful Christmas romances set in the fictional town, Evermore, for Wifetime Channel. While her movies are madly popular. Holly’s dearest wish is to write a gay Christmas romance. Something that she’d have liked t see while growing up. Her idea is shot down repeatedly and she’s determined not to sign up for a new Evermore romance unless she can also get the greenlight for her gay romance.

Despite writing the popular Christmas romances, Holly personally is not into the holiday. She prefers to spend it by herself in Hawaii each year. Serendipitously, this time, her office crush, Meredith Drake is also in Hawaii, in the same resort at the same time. Meredith was supposed to be hosting a bachelorette for her sister who has seemingly flaked out and informed everyone else in the party, sans Meredith. 

Holly and Meredith spend time together and have what could be a holiday fling. Except it isn’t with Meredith asking to date Holly when they get back to their real life. Holly is more than happy to agree. 

But things aren’t smooth sailing for the couple when they return. Meredith is promoted and has to adhere to newly put-in-place strict workplace relationships. 

This is assuredly a romance with romance being the driver of the story. However, it reads like Holly’s story. Meredith has probably as much page time as Holly’s quirky group of friends. So it’s safe to say that this is a story around one central character, Holly. And Holly is undoubtedly a delightful central character. She is utterly and completely adorable. Meredith, as a foil romantic interest is also quite charming. The assorted supporting characters are also totally fun. 

There is some angst, but it doesn’t weigh down the light, peppy proceedings of the narrative. We absolutely love the unexpected celebrity status Holly has in her hometown and having a day named after her – the cherry on top of the cheesiness!
