i don't know why i didn't like this more than i did. i liked the ideas and themes and didn't find the writing bad, but somehow it didn't fully click for me.

Matthew Prince is a rich kid, and at age 21 after a big breakup, he decides to buy an island. His parents are horrified, hush the whole thing up, and pack him off from New York to a small town in the Berkshires to spend Christmas with his grandparents. There, he meets Hector, a not-as-well-off college student staying with Matthew's grandparents since he can't afford to go home for break, and they immediately get off on the wrong foot. But when his grandparents convince them to work together on a gala to benefit the town's small business association, sparks start to fly.

A mixed bag of a romance for me. I appreciated the portrayal of generalized anxiety disorder GAD, and liked seeing Matthew's progress from being self-absorbed and all about image to being able to have something real. But as I reach the point of being twice his age, it was hard to relate to a couple of college-age kids, especially one with lots of money and little sense, and it was hard to give him grace as a character when I could see plot points coming a mile away. I thought the misunderstanding near the end was a little over the top, but not dealing with GAD myself, I may be selling Matthew short. A feel-good Christmas romance I would recommend to the right reader.

Cute! Wren and Derick are so cute together. I found the ups and downs of their relationship are relatable.

At 11 hours, I found this audiobook a marathon. It is fun, but ... I wasn't always sure why I was listening to it. Was I wasting time ... more than I usually do?!

Matthew Prince is a card, ie an unusual character - annoying but harmless. And he is entertaining in his spoilt brat way.

Matthew is sent to his grandparents when he overspends on his credit cards, so he's in a small town in a tiny bedroom shared with a student the grandparents are helping, Hector.
