Our bookseller says...
“A cozy, schmaltzy lesbian Hanukkah rom-com, filled to the brim with cuteness. This enemies-to-lovers romp takes place on a Jewish-owned Christmas tree farm, in an honest-to-goodness Christmas small town (Stars Hollow vibes). Main character Miriam makes her living decoupaging antiques with her network of Old Ladies™, while her love interest Noelle manages a Christmas tree farm and takes care of the farm’s cat, Kringle. The town (and the main characters’ lovable sidekicks) join together to save the farm! Despite all of this cuteness, Season of Love still tackles difficult topics like abuse, alcoholism, and mental health with grace. Fun, festive, and sweet as sufganiyot, Season of Love is yet another miracle of Hanukkah.”

Miriam Blum has no choice but to face the past she thought she’d left behind when she inherits her great-aunt’s Christmas tree farm in this witty, glittering, heart-filled romcom with “all of the warm, queer, Jewish holiday vibes you could possibly want” (Jen DeLuca, USA Today bestselling author of Well Matched)
“A warm, cozy holiday romance . . . a vibrant exploration of embracing that which is most unexpected in life . . . and in love. Best read under the glow of rainbow twinkle lights with a cup of cocoa.”
—Ashley Herring Blake, author of Delilah Green Doesn’t Care
Thanks to her thriving art career, Miriam Blum finally has her decoupaged glitter ducks in a row—until devastating news forces her to a very unwanted family reunion. Her beloved great-aunt Cass has passed and left Miriam part-owner of Carrigan’s, her (ironically) Jewish-run Christmas tree farm.
But Miriam’s plans to sit shiva, avoid her parents, then put Carrigan’s in her rearview mirror are spoiled when she learns the business is at risk of going under. To have any chance at turning things around, she’ll need to work with the farm’s grumpy manager—as long as the attraction sparking between them doesn’t set all their trees on fire first.
Noelle Northwood wants Miriam Blum gone—even if her ingenious ideas and sensitive soul keep showing Noelle there’s more to Cass’s niece than meets the eye. But saving Carrigan’s requires trust, love, and risking it all—for the chance to make their wildest dreams come true.
