    What a heart-wrenching but beautiful story.Lauren is dealing with infertility, and the subsequent diagnosis of PCOS. Her ideals that she's built around her and her husband, Joe, have been shattered, and she's turned to the only thing she thinks can make her happy - social media. The texts, comments and likes come in flurries every time she puts out another post about her perfect life, but it's doing nothing to fix the pain she's struggling through.The holidays come, and what was supposed to be a [...]

    I’m pretty sure author Olivia Folmar Ard has been in my head. I haven’t dealt with the infertility issues that Lauren, the main character of Ard’s 'Tis the Season, has, but I can absolutely relate to the love-hate relationship with social media. Ard layers this complex battle - between keeping up bright-and-shiny online appearances and the reality of life - with the heart-wrenching drama of a young couple trying to conceive. As the universe seems to layer stress over stress on poor Lauren, [...]

    Olivia Folmar Ard is building a reputation for relevant, contemporary women's fiction with soul. 'Tis the Season, while short enough and, on the surface, light enough for a Christmas read, is a character-driven story. It is THE story most of us need to read at the holidays. It's a reminder to be more transparent and less concerned with appearance, more merciful and less retaliatory, and more generous than envious. At one time or another, we all think we've got the market cornered on suffering an [...]


  • Cynthia Hilston

    This a beautiful story, both heart-breaking and heart-warming. A reader of Ms. Ard's other works, I can tell you that she knows the craft of writing a story that's authentic and grips the heartstrings just right. Her prose is almost poetic at times. Her dialogue brings her characters to life.If you love Christmas, happy endings, and romance, this is a wonderful book for you, especially during this time of year (it's November as I write this).This story had to be a labor of love for Ms. Ard, as t [...]

    In an age of oversharing, a young couple trying to conceive and battling Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) struggles to keep their health issues private. Ironic much? Even more so, considering Lauren spends a lot of time creating and maintaining the perfect social-media persona. And there's nothing like a holiday trip to see her in-laws to threaten to dismantle all that online perfection.Despite my distaste for "rushing the season" in so many other ways, I'm always up to read a good Christmas s [...]

    This was a nice book by author Olivia Folmar Ard. I didn't know anything about the condition that Lauren has until I read this book, and now I have a sympathetic spot for her. Oh yeah, and that in-law family too. Yikes. And there's the nasty job situation. Okay, the main character, really has my sympathy. I feel like this couple was very relatable and I'm glad that their journey together in this book was a positive one. This is the second book by this author I've read. I LOVED Pretty Lies. This [...]


  • Pamela Humphrey

    A tender, intimate glimpse into the lives of a couple struggling with infertility, set against the complexity of family relations. I highly recommend it.I was provided an ARC by the author for an honest review.

    So enjoyed this heartfelt, honest look at how difficult life can be yet how hopeful love is as well.

    The holidays can be tough. Mix in both personal and professional crises along with a dysfunctional family, this time of year can be less than merry and not so bright. In 'Tis the Season, Lauren grapples with the stark contrast between the life she always wanted and a reality that is less than ideal. Along the way, she learns a valuable lesson about what truly matters in this heartwarming tale that will renew your faith in the joy and wonder of the holiday season.*I received an advanced reading c [...]

    This is a realistic look at life set during the Christmas Season of the year. Lauren Calhoun spends lots of time on social media making sure her life looks as perfect as she wishes it was. She has a gorgeous surfer husband Joe, a great job, and a house right on the ocean in Folly Beach. So, what's the matter with her? Why isn't she overflowing with joy? Well, the job is not much fun anymore, now they've gotten so strict about every little thing! The house is beautiful but, it's a lot more work t [...]
