It's Christmas in Mapleton!
Laney McGregor’s previous holiday season ended in disaster. Add to that her recent Election Day loss, and her spirits are decidedly un-bright. She’s determined to spend a quiet Christmas at home in Mapleton, helping out on her family's tree farm when needed but mostly keeping to herself. That is, until a job opportunity sweeter than sugar plums gets dangled in front of her…if only she’ll participate in a sequence of Christmas clichés.
Ford Marshall has made his list and checked it twice, and he’s sure of one thing. He’s been half in love with Laney since he knew being in love was a thing to be, but he’s always acted like a fool where she’s concerned. Now, though, when Laney finds herself running McGregor Tree Farm solo, Ford gladly steps up to be her right hand elf.
As the pair participates in the Merry Mapleton festivities, an unexpected holiday romance is born. But when personal insecurities and professional developments are brought to light, Ford and Laney’s new relationship is put to the test. Can they learn from past mistakes, let their guards down, and come together to make theirs a Christmas love story that’ll last the whole year long…and beyond?
A swoon-worthy holiday romance, filled to the brim with fun, friendship, and finding love in the most unexpected places.
