Review: The 12 Christmases of You & Me by Jennifer Joyce (Blog Tour)

The 12 Christmases of You & Me 

What if you could go back in time and fix the biggest mistake of your life? 

Two years ago, Maisie’s best friend walked out of her life and she hasn’t heard from him since.  When she wakes up in 1994, she naturally assumes she’s dreaming. But when she finds herself in the past again the next night and her actions in the dream alter her present-day life, she begins to wonder if she’s somehow hopping back in time. And if she is time-travelling, can she save her friendship with Jonas? 

When Maisie is forced to relive Christmases of the past, will she face up to her mistakes, or make them all over again? 

The 12 Christmases of You & Me is a magical tale of friendship, first loves, and learning to live in the present.

My Review

Maisie McNamara has been missing her friend Jonas Brown for years. She made one mistake and they haven’t spoken in a very long time. 

Now, her best friend Lily is getting married. Maisie is completely wrapped up in the upcoming wedding when suddenly she finds herself thrown back to her years as a teenager in the 1990’s. She can’t help but wonder if this is a chance for her to make things right with Jonas, but can she really change history like that? 

This book is a unique take on time travel. Maisie travels back to her teen years. It happens when she falls asleep or is photographed. Then, she immediately comes back to the present day without anyone else knowing. 

Jennifer Joyce gives readers a sweet, fantasy holiday read. It’s perfect for the Christmas season. It gives you hope for the future as well as coming to terms with the past. It’s a story of friendship and accepting friends no matter what happens. 

I loved all the characters in this book. It’s one of those books that gives you “warm fuzzies” after the last page is turned.  It's the definition of a "feel good" read.
