ARC Review: Coming Home for Christmas by RaeAnne Thayne *Stephanie’s Review*

I was hesitant about picking up a Christmas book in September. I really like to save my Christmas indulgences until after Thanksgiving……but I’ve really been wondering about this story’s couple for too long to put it off.

It also REALLY reminded me of all the teenage thoughts and feelings about romantic love and how super important it is at that age. […]
