Sophie wants one thing for Christmas-a little freedom from her overprotective parents. So when they decide to spend Christmas in South Louisiana with her very pregnant older sister, Sophie is looking forward to some much needed private (read: make-out) time with her long-term boyfriend, Griffin. Except it turns out that Griffin wants a little freedom from their relationship. Cue devastation.
Heartbroken, Sophie flees to her grandparents’ house, where the rest of her boisterous extended family is gathered for the holiday. That’s when her nonna devises a (not so) brilliant plan: Over the next ten days, Sophie will be set up on ten different blind dates by different family members. Like her sweet cousin Sara, who sets her up with a hot guy at an exclusive underground party. Or her crazy aunt Patrice, who signs Sophie up for a lead role in a living nativity. With a boy who barely reaches her shoulder. And a screaming baby.
When Griffin turns up unexpectedly and begs for a second chance, Sophie feels more confused than ever. Because maybe, just maybe, she’s started to have feelings for someone else . . . Someone who is definitely not available.
This is going to be the worst Christmas break ever… or is it?
This was written in such a way that you felt like you were part of the clan. Part of the extended family. It was such a great feel good holiday read that it put me in the holiday spirit. It was quirky, funny, cute with some great family dynamics. I liked that the author focused on family relationships while also bringing out the inner teenager and the excitment of first dates in general. There was not a moment where I was bored or wanted to stop reading.
You’re going to be all fuzzy and warm while reading this book. Get ready to cosy up with a cup of your favourite warm drink and smile the entire time you read 10 Blind Dates.
Thank you Chapters Indigo for the ARC! I had such a great time reading this.
