Flashback Friday on Swoony Boys Podcast featuring Sun-Kissed Christmas by Katherine Applegate

It’s time for Flashback Friday, where we feature a book that’s at least two years old. We started this feature a few years ago with our besties over at Fiction Fare as a way to highlight books we might have forgotten about. They could be books we’ve read and loved or books we need to jump on. If you have a #FlashbackFriday, let us know in the comments. If you want more info about this feature, check out the details here. This week, we’re featuring:

All she wants for Christmas…

Summer is headed to the Keys for winter break, but what should be a fun-in-the-sun holiday is becoming unbearable. Summer hasn’t been able to stop thinking about her ex-boyfriend, Austin, since their summer romance fizzled, and she can’t stand seeing him at the beach with his new girlfriend….

Now Austin is everywhere she goes. She’s reminded of how much fun they had, how gorgeous he is, and what she really wants is what she can’t have. Will it take a Christmas miracle for Summer to survive this holiday season? Or will the mistletoe work its magic?
