My first book that I finished this month feels very fitting as we have gotten quite a bit of snow so the mood just felt right. This is a book I have been dying to get my hands on for months and I am glad I saved it till now. I really am hoping to read more Christmas / Holiday books before the end of the year, so fingers crossed.

“We should remember those who have left us with fondness. Speaking of them keeps their memory alive.”B.K. Borison, Lovelight Farms
A pasture of dead trees. A hostile takeover of the Santa barn by a family of raccoons. And shipments that have mysteriously gone missing. Lovelight Farms is not the magical winter wonderland of Stella Bloom’s dreams.
In an effort to save the Christmas tree farm she’s loved since she was a kid, she enters a contest with instafamous influencer Evelyn St. James. With the added publicity and the $100,000 cash prize, she might just be able to save the farm from its financial woes. There’s just one problem. To make the farm seem like a romantic destination for the holidays, she lied on the application and said she owns Lovelight Farms with her boyfriend. Only … there is no boyfriend.
Enter best friend Luka Peters. He just came home for some hot chocolate, and somehow got a farm and a serious girlfriend in the process.
Synopsis From GoodReads
“Leaning on other people doesn’t make your achievements any less yours, La La. You can trust me to help you carry the load. You don’t have to do all of this alone. I know you can take of yourself. You’ve been doing that as long as I’ve known you. But let me hold your hand while you do it, okay?”B.K. Borison, Lovelight Farms
“It’s hard to love someone without restraint. To give yourself over to the swell and pull of it without fear of what might happen. I think it’s only natural to hold a part of yourself back and protect what you can.”B.K. Borison, Lovelight Farms
I feel like I have seen this book being reviewed left and right on bookstagram lately due to the holiday season and I am so glad I decided to read it too. Honestly I have not seen any bad reviews for this book and I now know why.
I am a huge friends to lovers fan and this book didn’t hold back! This could be a possible spoiler but I could have lived without the small tiff at the end, it really wasn’t needed and it was just one big misunderstanding. I just wanted them to be continuously happy. However, would it really be a romance book without some misunderstanding right at the end?
I would also call this book a bit of a found family story. The farm she built with her new friends turned out to be wonderful and even though they go through some bumps in the road her friends back her up and offer their support. This was probably my favorite part of the book. There’s just something about found family that pulls at my heart strings.
I am so excited to read the rest of B.K. Borison’s books, if they are anything like this one I know I will be obsessed! I highly recommend picking this one up for a last minute holiday read.
“And isn’t it silly, to love the way someone’s things look like next to yours? Little bits and pieces of a life lived in parallel.”B.K. Borison, Lovelight Farms
