    Fun cute read

    I really really enjoyed this one. Tinka and Sam were such a cute couple. I love the fake relationship trope anyway and in a YA read it was extra cute. Both these characters had family issues they are dealing and it seems a little easier dealing with everything together. This is a nice clean read with some truly great characters. I highly recommend this one.

    Another cute, sweet visit to North Pole, Minnesota

    Another cute, sweet visit to North Pole, Minnesota, which is a very Stars Hollow-esque town (Gilmore Girls, anyone?), complete with their own "Kirk" and lots of quirk! Sam is the youngest son in the Anderson family and he is tired of the pressure he keeps getting to date someone. He makes the mistake of going on a date with a girl who is a bit vengeful when slighted, and winds up fabricating a girlfriend. He was a likable guy, though I definitely found him to be a bit of a pushover. He was very sweet and thoughtful, but really needed to learn to stand up for himself more! His sweetness did, however, provide a nice balance to Tinka's self-centeredness. Tinka was fairly fun for a bit... and then her friends got mad at her and she got pretty annoying. She didn't have quite the character arc that I would have liked, and didn't really get much of a wake-up call. I also didn't care for how she treated her parents, especially towards the end when she gets angry with them without much actual reason to be. Tinka's family suffered a loss years before, and the grief aspects were a nice addition to the story and a well-executed device: present, but not too heavy. North Pole is always fun (for those who have read the first book in the series) and the Christmas in July aspect was really charming!

    Amazing fauxmance!

    I was so excited to visit North Pole again!! While this is the second book in this series, it can definitely be read as a standalone. Tinka has just moved to North Pole with her family. She's completely out of her element, doesn't understand what is going on with her parents, and is trying to figure out how to keep away from a guy they keep trying to set her up with. Sam is Tinka's next door neighbor, always has a smile on his face, and rolls with everything that comes his way. He's the ultimate movie geek. Tinka is the ultimate baker. When they both need a relationship to ward off their families, they enter into a mutually beneficial fauxmance. But as their friendship grows so do their feelings. I love this series. It's heartfelt, deals with real issues, and draws you in so you have no choice but to keep reading. There are so many fantastic characters in this series and I can't wait to see what's next for the residents of North Pole! *This is my voluntary review of an advanced reader copy*
