Happy Friday, Reader Friends!
We’re bringing you another book review here on Diversity Between the Pages. This day Toni is sharing her thoughts on Jaycee Weaver’s Love, Laughter, and Luminarias. Have you had a chance to read it yet? If not, add it to your TBR pile!
About the Book
The Blurb: “Surprisingly successful action-suspense author Garrett Wilson is struggling to write a summer novel in December. That is, until he witnesses his best friend, Nina, chase down a shoplifter and realizes that maybe his tough, attractive heroine might not be based solely in fiction.
Geeky-chic Nina Trujillo finds herself contemplating a God she’s never believed in after her brush with danger taking down a thief. That one decision could change the whole course of her life, and quite possibly, her feelings for the one guy she’s never considered more than a friend.
When Nina dives head-first into a series of Christmas projects and ideas for new traditions, she drags Garrett along for the ride. Will her newfound courage and all the extra time together bring their feelings out into the open, or will Nina escape back into the comfort of her fandoms and lose him forever?”
Y’all Jaycee Weaver is quickly becoming one of my must-read authors. I quickly jumped at the opportunity to read Love, Laughter, and Luminarias. First of all, the cover is gorgeous and inviting. Second of all the hero, Garrett, is a writer!
Y’all, I can’t remember how many books I’ve read where the hero is the writer but when it happens, I love the book. Every. Single. Time!
But besides the awesome aspect as a hero writer is the heroine. Nino Trujillo is fierce and I so want her to be my friend. We could talk comic books together and dreamy writer friends.
I loved how Ms. Weaver weaved the Christmas spirit through the book, Latino culture, and a swoony romance that will have your cheeks splitting with happiness. Be sure to pick this read up soon!

About the Author
Jaycee Weaver lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with her amazing husband, three daughters, a crazy shih-tzu, and a dwarf rabbit. When she’s not writing, she’s probably in hot pursuit of her 90 million other hobbies or shuttling the kids around. Jaycee loves to read books in multiple genres, drink too much coffee (honestly, when are they going to make the coffee IV a real thing?!), sing, take landscape and floral photos, sew, cook, bake, and craft nearly anything. She considers herself a recovering perfectionist and sometimes hot mess. She does her best to live her faith in action, being open, honest, and real; letting God be Lord over the good, the bad, and the ugly even when it’s hard.
