Violet returns to her hometown after her dreams of being an actress in New York City fall apart, as well as a nasty break-up. Holiday Junction is the quintessential small town, and couldn’t be further removed from the bustling metropolis. So of course, at first, she feels a bit out of sorts, like she doesn’t fit in anymore, despite having grown up there.
To me, Holiday Junction has some similarities to Gimore Girls’ Stars Hollow; a charming small town full of tradition, where everyone knows each other. If you liked that show, I’m sure you’ll be enchanted by this book.
Upon her return to Holiday Junction and starting her new job, Violet reconnects with her childhood best friend and boy next door, Kade, and her high school boyfriend, Liam. She is, and always has been, blissfully ignorant of Kade’s true feelings for her, but now that they’ve grown up, things might change… The ensuing frustrations and misunderstandings are adorable to read, as is the meddling of the town’s “Mamas”, self-proclaimed matchmakers.
Another thing I liked is how recent events in Violet’s life, leading up to her return to Holiday Junction, aren’t shared in total at the start of the story, Rather, details of these events are shared at appropriate moments, like they also would in real life. It makes for a more naturally evolving experience, as well as keeping you guessing as to what exactly happened. And while some of it is very sad, it’s described in a way that contributes to the story, these characters, and their relationships.
This story is so agonizingly sweet and cute, it’ll leave you with a toothache! I’m now also looking forward to the next book in this new series.
Good story concept, just needs tightened up on the execution.

This book was just like watching Christmas films that make you feel all warm and gooey inside!!!
Violet had left her home town to become an actress in the city, but unfortunately like most she never got the break she needed. She had met Ben and thought they were in love until he got lead role in a film and dumped her for the leading lady. It got so bad that she had to return home for what she assumed would be a little while but was offered a position teaching Drama at the local school. So homeward bound she was.
Now her home town was called Holiday Junction and they did just that they worked as a community for each Holiday and the next one being Valentine.
On arriving home she meets her neighbour and best friend Kade, it had been 10 years since they had seen each other. Kade still adored her and Vi still thought of him as her bestie. Her ex boyfriend Liam also still lived in town he was a lawyer now. Kade and Vi spent a lot of time together and then she met Liam (childhood sweetheart).
It's a very lighthearted book with matchmaking, secret admirers and not forgetting Valentine's Day events which the whole town were involved with.
Was Vi trying to live in the past with Liam? But she was happy, wasn't she? Kade was happy for her wasnt he? That's all he ever wanted, her to be happy. Packed full of drama this was a feel good story.
I have found all of the Holiday Junction series books to be charming. This one felt especially so. I love the setting of the town, and that was explored more in this book than the other ones. I want to live in Holiday Junction; it is just so quaint and lovely. The meet-cute between the couple was funny and adorable, and Vi’s reaction to being home as well as Cade’s reaction her seemed honest and authentic. I like both of these characters, and it was fun to watch their relationship evolve.

4 / 5 stars, because I'm not a fan of love triangles, even if they make sense (high school sweetheart vs. best friend).
