Holidays, Inc.
By Rachelle Paige Campbell
Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 260 Pages
November 4, 2020 by The Wild Rose Press, Inc


Former child actress, Danielle "Dani" Winter, left Hollywood to transform an old cinema into a dinner theater, seeing the project as her chance to take control of her future. The middle-of-nowhere location in Wisconsin is a perfect escape from backstabbing celebrity friends. The small town welcomes her help with open arms, but one man questions her plan.

After unsuccessful writing stints on both coasts, Paul Howell returns home to New Hope. He's shocked to discover that his sister has sold the family business to a beautiful woman. With the encouragement of his neighbors, he reluctantly agrees to write Dani's next musical.

Working together, they discover more similarities than differences and grow close. When Dani's former best friend and America's sweetheart, Kara Kensington arrives, their blossoming relationship is threatened in more ways than one.

My Review

HOLIDAYS, INC. is a story of second chances, not only for the two main characters, but also for this small-town. It's also about family, unexpected love, how dreams can change, and figuring out that fame isn't all it's professed to be. Recommended to clean romance readers who enjoy small-town settings and a touch of Christmas cheer.

This story starts off really well, if you like the awkward, angsty meet cute, which I do. The two love interests are on opposing sides at first with a poor first impression, but things begin to change as they work together. I loved both of these characters: Dani and Paul. I also loved Paul's sister, Jill (I'm pretty sure she'll have her own story in a future book). The chemistry is strong with plenty of almost moments as they try to keep things professional. I enjoyed seeing them start to let down their guard and let each other in over the course of the story. Of course both of these characters make mistakes and it takes a bit for them to get to the happily-ever-after they want.

I did have a few issues with the story. I felt like the dialogue and writing needed to be smoothed out a bit more, and thoughts more fully expressed. I didn't always follow the thinking of the characters so I wanted to experience more of the why to their reasoning and come to conclusions along with them instead of being told as much. I also didn't feel there was a strong different between Dani's and Paul's voices, so I think that needed to be developed more so they were each unique from each other. There were also just a few things that felt unrealistic. Regardless, I still very much enjoyed reading this.

In the end, was it what I wished for? This was a fun read with plenty of sweet moments of both friendship, family, and romance. I'm hoping for more stories set in this small town from this author!
