No, that’s really the name of the book, and I’m so late with spotlighting this season’s holiday reads. Gee Whiz, It’s Christmas is a joint effort by veteran (IR) authors Roslyn Hardy Holcomb and Lisa G. Riley.
This is actually book 1 of in a series that centers around the Meadowlark, an upscale restaurant in Atlanta. The owners, Lady G and Uncle Popsicle (you know they some OG’s with these names lol) are the owners who are also foster parents who have raised dozens of children over the past few decades. This story focuses on Casey Brooks.
Casey is crushing on Carter, the rich boy next door, but they don’t exactly get along. To Carter, Casey is just the sister of his homeboy-that is until puberty strikes, and you know the game completely changes. These young lovers attempt to make a go at it until some ish goes down, and they break up over lies and betrayal.
Flash forward ten years later. Casey and Carter meet again at the Meadowlark where Casey’s parents are hosting their annual holiday shindig. They try fighting the feelings, but you know when you’ve never resolved the drama that broke you up, the feelings never got resolved either, and BAM! Here’s your holiday romance.
This sounds like a really good one, that I’m gonna add to the ol TBR. Y’all know I love teen angst that transitions into adult angst. Gee Whiz It’s Christmas is available now. Check it out!
