Three Books That Could Be Hallmark Movies
It’s November, y’all! And I may or may not have started Christmas decorating at my house last night. If you’re all up in the holiday spirit right now, here’s a list of books that could 100% be Hallmark Christmas movies.
The Tourist Attraction by Sarah Morgenthaler
This is book one in a series that SCREAMS “Hallmark!” It’s got quirky and lovable characters. It’s set in an idyllic town with lots of snow. A cute, perky woman travels there for “vacation” but falls head over heels for a hot, grumpy local…will she stay? Will she leave? You know the answer. I’ll admit, my original review of this book was like 3ish stars, but to be fair, that’s probably what I would rate any Hallmark movie too. (I think it’s only fair to add that not every book in this series is Christmas-y, but they are all winter-y.)
The Holiday Ex-Files by Jennifer Peel
This one is pretty funny, y’all. If it was a Hallmark movie it would definitely be on the goofier side. A woman runs a business where she crops cheating spouses out of photos for people, because she did this in a fit of rage (or pure genius?) after finding out her husband was cheating on her during the holidays. Guess who’s decided to help her rediscover the joys of Christmas? Her ex’s hot best friend. Come on! This hallmark movie is basically producing itself!
Christmas By The Book by Anne Marie Ryan
Ok, this one is set in England, but hear me out Hallmark… This could easily be adapted to a cozy town in like New Hampshire or wherever. Check this one out for a Christmas book that’s centered more on community and helping others rather than romance. You know those wholesome, emotional Hallmark movies? It’s like that. Anne Marie Ryan doesn’t just tug on your heart strings, she place a face melting guitar solo on them.
