Christmas Camp by Karen Schaler | Book Review

After reading Christmas Camp by Karen Schaler, I 100% want to go to a camp based around the theme of Christmas. I cracked open this book expecting to like it. All of the summary had indicators that this would be the right sort of book for me to give a shot. As it turns out though, I LOVED this book. It was absolutely like indulging in a Hallmark Christmas movie, but in book form.

Karen Schaler’s Christmas Camp follows main character Haley Hanson. She is an advertising expert and puts together these great brand campaigns. However, she is now gunning for the role of partner at her firm. This means that she will need to land the Tyler Toys account and pitch it to her boss. Only, she has a reputation around the office for not being a Christmas fanatic. Still, she begs her boss for the opportunity to make the pitch for the account. He responds by telling her she needs to go to Christmas Camp and discover the spirit of Christmas within. And so, because work is so important to her – Haley goes to the camp.

Each day at camp has a word with activities that surround the word. At first, Haley is a reluctant participant and does not fully give herself up to the camp. Her goal is to check as many things off the list as possible just to get her certificate. With some help, she eventually finds herself slowing down and enjoying the season. She also finds the possibility of love at the camp. You see, she has this intense attraction to the owner’s son, Jeff. Meanwhile Jeff is trying to get his dad to sell the camp and move to Boston to be closer to him.

On the whole, I think that Christmas Camp was one of my favorite books that I read during the holiday season. It has all that I look for – romance, an interesting setting and characters who are dynamic. I look forward to reading more from Schaler.

On A Scale Of One To Buddy The Elf, How Much Christmas Spirit Does This Book Have?

Okay, so at first the main character of Christmas Camp, Haley, is basically phoning it in because she really wants the job of advertising partner. BUT THEN, magically the Christmas spirit hits and all is amazing. So, on the whole this hits the Buddy end of the spectrum.

  2. This sounds like a wonderfully writte Hallmark movie. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s picked up. This novel seems interesting. I’d love to read it during my Christmassy moods. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. x
