Window Shopping – Tessa Bailey
Genre: Christmas RomCom
You’ll enjoy it if you like holiday romcoms that have the unreasonable aspects of Hallmark movies.
Window Shopping was my first Christmas read of the year and it did not disappoint. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. It may have even fast-tracked me reading the there other Tessa Bailey books that I have, Tools of Engagement, It Happened One Summer, and Fix Her Up. I read it in one sitting as it came out to around 230 pages. It’s not terribly long and if you’re trying to reach your Goodreads goal by the end of the year, may come in handy.
This book was like a cheesy Christmas movie in a lot of ways. You love it, it doesn’t take long to read, certain aspects don’t get tied up in the end, and plot points aren’t reality. Yet, you don’t read it for any of those reasons and you still love it.
I rated it four stars because as much as I enjoyed it and laughed along, I wish it had explored some plot points a bit further and been a tad more realistic. However, that was the beauty in this book as well. I really want to dive into so much more, but I won’t be able to without spoiling it. Check the content warnings though before recommending this out to your friends or family.
I can’t wait to read more Tessa Bailey books and continue my December reads. I’m currently reading The Twelve Dates of Christmas, but finding it a bit hard to get invested in. I’m hoping to change that this weekend!
Let me know if you’ve read Window Shopping. I’d be curious to know what you think as well!
