Three Holidays and a Wedding

Books on Tape. Sept. 2023. 9:53 hrs. ISBN 9780593787953. $95. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Seatmates on a flight headed for Toronto, Maryam Aziz and Anna Gibson weren’t expecting to make a lasting connection. Then a blizzard hits, forcing an emergency landing that leaves Maryam, her crush Saif, her family, and Anna stranded in Snow Falls, Ontario, for the holidays. With Christmas, Ramadan, and Hanukkah falling so closely together, there is much magic in the air as Maryam opens up to Saif, and Anna falls in love with the lead actor of a holiday movie being filmed in the town. Jalaluddin (Much Ado About Nada) and Stapley (Lucky) have taken a classic holiday romance and expanded it to encompass multiple faiths and cultures. Narrator Ulka Simone Mohanty provides vibrant performances for the many characters, from straitlaced Anna and heartthrob Chase Taylor to the members of Maryam’s family and Saif. This sweet holiday romance brings together the various components of Islam, Judaism, and Christianity to show the true meaning of the holiday season.
VERDICT An outstanding addition to any holiday romance collection, perfect for fans of Jean Meltzer’s The Matzah Ball or Jaqueline Snowe’s Snowed in for Christmas.
