Books & Beer with Rising Tide

Tuesday, December 19, 2023 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Location: Rising Tide Brewing Company

Print: A Bookstore has partnered with the lovely folks over at Rising Tide to co-host a monthly book club lead by former Print events coordinator, Rachael Conrad. The next meeting is on December 19th at 7 PM, and will be discussing JUST LIKE MAGIC by Sarah Hogle. The location is changing from Banded Brewing Co. and will now take place at Rising Tide Brewing Company!

The holidays were never her thing, until she accidentally conjures the Holiday Spirit...before her very eyes.

Bettie Hughes once knew the comfort of luxury, flaunting a collection of designer purses and an enviable dream home in Hawaii. That was before she lost all her money. Long obsessed with her public image, Bettie boasts an extravagant lifestyle on social media. But the reality is Bettie is broke and squatting in Colorado, and her family has no idea.
Christmas, with its pressure to meet familial expectations, is looming when Bettie plays a vinyl record of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” backward and accidentally conjures up Hall, the Holiday Spirit, in the form of a charming and handsome (if offbeat) man. Once the shock wears off, Bettie knows she’s stumbled upon the greatest gift: a chance to make all her holiday wishes come true, plus a ready-made fiancé.
But as some of Bettie’s wishes lose their charm, she finds herself thrown off-kilter by Hall’s sweet nature. Suddenly, grumpy Bettie is finding her heart merry and light. But the happier she gets, the shorter Hall’s time on earth grows. Can Bettie channel the Christmas spirit and learn to live with goodwill toward all men? Or will her selfish ways return as soon as the holidays are over?
