Summary (from Goodreads):

Dash and Lily have had a tough year since they first fell in love among the shelves of their favorite bookstore. Lily’s beloved grandfather suffered a heart attack, and his difficult road to recovery has taken a major toll on her typically sunny disposition.

With only twelve days left until Christmas—Lily’s favorite time of the year—Dash, Lily’s brother Langston, and their closest friends must take Manhattan by storm to help Lily recapture the unique holiday magic of a glittering, snow-covered New York City in December.

Amazon “Book Depository


I absolutely cannot wait for The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily! When I read the first book, Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares, I adored it, but I was mildly disappointed with the abrupt ending. I freaked out when I heard about the upcoming sequel, and I’m sure that it will be just as incredible as the first book.

    I have always wondered about Dash and Lily, but I have never read it. With a sequel coming out, I may have to give it a shot. With a book that has this much love for it, I cannot imagine not enjoying it myself!
