Publisher Description

AN INSTANT NATIONAL BESTSELLER

"It Happened One Christmas is irresistibly Christmassy with all the sparkle of a Hallmark movie. So festive I could almost smell the scent of pine through the pages." —Jenny Bayliss, author of Meet Me Under the Mistletoe

A charming and rollicking holiday rom-com about a big-city film director who must convince the dreamy, yet grumpy, mayor of a small town to give her the permit to shoot her Christmas movie in his idyllic hometown. Perfect for fans of Hallmark holiday movies, and readers of Maggie Knox's All I Want for Christmas and The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.


Will her Christmas wish come true?

Zoey Andrews lives and breathes Christmas. She loves everything about the season, and after years of directing countless holiday movies, she certainly knows her way around a festive tale. So, when she finally gets the chance to bring her own script to life, she isn't about to let anything, or anyone, stand in her way--not even the stupidly sexy, utterly frustrating plaid-clad tree farmer Benoît Deschamps. Moonlighting as mayor of Chelsea--the cozy Quebec hamlet at the center of Zoey's screenplay--Ben maddeningly refuses to grant her a film permit in his enchanting town.

With just four days left before Christmas, Zoey must change Ben's mind, but not before an unscripted ice storm leaves them stranded in the middle of nowhere, with nothing except . . . each other.

Will Ben's chilly resolve shatter Zoey's Christmas movie wish? Or will Zoey be able to melt his stubbornness--and maybe even his heart?

Thinking Face“This was a weird one. I didn’t really like the MC - I found after Ben told her the reasons he didn’t want a film in the town, she cared still more about a permit than him. I didn’t feel any chemistry between the characters. And, after the car accident, they 100% should have went to the hospital. He was unconscious for a WHILE.”
Easy to readBeautiful settingUnengaging characters
“I loved the premise and the setting! But the main characters both came off as rude rather than feisty so I found them mostly unlikeable. There were also lots of elements that I found unrealistic, like the accident scene - getting knocked unconscious from sliding off a slippery road while travelling so very, very slowly? Nope. Although this one went off the rails for me, I hope this author writes another book because the meat and bones of this story had great potential, and I enjoyed the very descriptive settings!”
