The festive season will soon be upon us, so it’s time for some f/f holiday books!
A holiday read is a book in which one of the winter holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, etc. plays a role. “Winter” refers to winter in the northern hemisphere, but, of course, the book can be set in the southern hemisphere during the holidays too. Also, it doesn’t need to be a Christian holiday.
15 GREAT LESBIAN HOLIDAY BOOKS
I’ve put together a list of 15 f/f holiday books I hope you’ll enjoy.
Under a Falling Star by Jae
Falling stars are supposed to be a lucky sign, but not for Austen. The first assignment in her new job—decorating the Christmas tree in the lobby—results in a trip to the ER after Dee, the company’s COO, gets hit by the star-shaped tree topper. There’s an instant attraction between them, but Dee is determined not to act on it, especially since Austen has no idea that Dee is her boss.
