In her debut novel, So, This Is Christmas, readers fell in love with Finley and Arthur, but what happens once Christmas break ends? In Tracy Andreen’s sequel, So, This Is Love, we see this new couple navigate their new relationship, as well as high school drama, during the most romantic time of year.
Finley and Arthur are back at boarding school and neither quite knows where the other stands--are they a couple? Are they not a couple? What does one magical Christmas Eve kiss in Oklahoma mean for their relationship status? This confusion isn't helped by the re-entry of old enemies into their school lives, especially ones that may or may not be crushing on Arthur. Finley is at a loss when navigating the complexities of her new (maybe) relationship, which could very well turn into love. . . if she doesn't blow it.
Just like its predecessor, this book was adorable! This YA romance novel follows Finley and Arthur after they return to school from Christmas Break and how they navigate their new feelings for one another.
I was at first surprised to hear that this sequel was coming out, but I’m ultimately so glad it did that I have my fingers crossed that a third book might be in the works! It was everyone you could want from a coming of age novel: romance, high school drama, new friendships, and forging your own path in life.
Plus this book is set around Valentine’s Day which is just adorable! So I definitely recommend adding this book to your 2023 TBR (in case you didn't get to squeeze it in at the end of 2022 since it came out on December 20th)!
