Miranda Owen | Celebrate the Season with Festive Romance Reads!
Author Guest / December 21, 2018

A warm holiday welcome to Fresh Fiction Reviewer, Miranda Owen, who is here to discuss some of her favorite holiday-themed romances! If this post doesn’t get you in the holiday spirit, we don’t know what will. Without further ado… I love a fun holiday-themed romance. Admittedly, my favorite holiday-themed romances involve Halloween, but I enjoy Christmas ones too. Some of my favorite books by Carolyn Brown and Terry Spear are centered on Christmas and family.

I’m sure most of us are familiar with the term, but a bromance is a close non-romantic friendship between two or more men. In the past, maybe it was called a sidekick? Some of my favorite bromances include: Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid Sherlock Holmes & John Watson Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn The Three Musketeers Joey & Chandler (Friends) Spock & Captain Kirk (New Star Trek) Napoleon Dynamite & Pedro Forest Gump & Bubba Shrek & Donkey The list could go on, but I’ll stop here.
