The plot may differ but that entertaining, fun quality with a touch of a fairy-tale is there. I found all of the characters to be highly entertaining and I really liked the dynamic between Nick and Thea. This is a great book to read on the beach or after a bad d 3.

It is positively dripping with Christmas and I love everything about it. Haley works in advertising in Boston and dreams of becoming partner. She needs to land a huge campaign to clench the partnership, but that campaign centers around a Christmas theme. This is the perfect grab-some-hot-chocolate, snuggle-with-a-blanket, feel good holiday story.
Ben absolutely loves Christmas and has been hosting these camps for years to share the joy of the holidays with people of all types. He used to host along with his wife, but sadly she is no longer alive to host with him, so his son has stepped in to help him carry on the Christmas Camp tradition.
At Christmas Camp, Haley meets couples that are looking to reconnect over the holiday, those that are alone for the first time over the holiday, and holiday enthusiasts just wanting to be around more Christmas.
She sneaks her laptop and phone so she can work whenever she can even though it is against the rules. Making snow angels, enjoying Christmas cookies and other treats, cutting down her own tree and decorating it with her own theme — these things become something that she enjoys rather than a burden, and she is able to relax rather than stress over the work she is missing.
This is a fairly straightforward story of person-who-hates-Christmas learning to confront why they dislike Christmas, then learning to have some holiday spirit.
I love stories like this with main characters that almost seem Scrooge-like or Grinch-like that end up eventually softening their hearts. Christmas Camp is overall a more feel-good story that I love because of all of the characters in it and because of everything that they do, and it just happens to have a very slow-burn romance with a little bit of promise at the end.
At any rate, I love the inn with the snow and hills and forests, and the feeling of community and family between the hosts and guests. The Christmas vibe is also very present with the trees and decorations and hot chocolate and foods and activities.
I think these may be the things I love most about the book, after the characterization which is fantastic. It was a great idea for the author to place so many different types of characters in the camp together because I cared so deeply for all of them and felt curious about their lives beyond just how Haley saw them.
Like Gail, for example, who is alone for Christmas because her son in the military is serving time overseas. And John, who is a divorced physician who works long hours, but is at camp with his two teenage children so he can spend quality time making memories with them over the holidays because they are growing up and will soon be moving out as adults.
Great characterization made this story full and rich and robust. But I honestly cannot imagine the movie being any better than this book.
This is exactly the type of Christmas story most of us are looking for when we are making our holiday reading lists. I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
