What could be more magical than a Hollywood Christmas?
A few years after they broke up professionally and personally, the ex-screenwriting team of Kerri Williams and Jon Romano find their lives turned upside down when an old script is green-lit and they're asked to write together again. Now, for the month of December, Kerri must leave behind her new life as a teacher in Brooklyn, to return to sunny Hollywood and work with the man she used to love.
Jon and Kerri just want to finish the film and get this awkward reunion over with. To complicate things further, the star of their movie, Amari Rivers, thinks they're engaged and wants them on the set for moral support and love advice. Wanting to keep the star happy, Kerri and Jon pretend to love each other, bringing back all the old feelings they've been trying so hard to forget. Could this be the Christmas they finally get their own happy ending?

Five years ago, Ivy Green thought she had found her soul mate in Nick Shepherd. Then Nick, whose family owns a winery in upstate New York, informs Ivy that he isn’t moving to Los Angeles with her while she pursues a career in screenwriting. Fortunately, Ivy was able to use her feelings for Nick, who broke up with her at Christmas time, as fodder for a Christmas movie screenplay, one that gives movie Nick a less-than-happy ending. While Ivy is thrilled when up- and-coming producer Drew Fox buys her screenplay, she is less delighted to discover that the movie will be filmed in the summer in her hometown of Geneva, where Nick still lives.
The Giglios, a husband-and-wife writing duo, effectively channel their experiences in film production and screenwriting to infuse their first novel with a deliciously fun sense of verisimilitude.
Fans of small-town romances, second-chance romances, and Christmas love stories, along with anyone who finds the snarky banter in movie rom-coms to be the best part of the picture, will feel like Christmas has, indeed, arrived early with this romp.
