Publisher's Summary

From the writer of the Netflix sensation A Christmas Prince, and Christmas Camp, the movie and novel, comes a heartwarming new Christmas story, Finding Christmas, showing how sometimes the detour in your journey is the path to true love.

With all the glittering decorations, twinkling lights, snow angels, gingerbread men, and mistletoe, Christmas is Emmie’s first love.

This year, she can’t wait to share her favorite Christmas traditions with her boyfriend, Grant. She thinks he’s “the one”. So when Grant’s hectic work schedule has him more “Bah Humbug” than “Ho, Ho, Ho”, Emmie creates a holiday-themed scavenger hunt to help him find his Christmas spirit. At the end of the journey, Grant will arrive at the charming town of Christmas Point where she’s planned a romantic weekend filled with holiday activities. 

But Emmie’s plan backfires when a mix-up has the wrong guy following her clues! Sam, a best-selling mystery writer, thinks Emmie’s clever Christmas riddles are from his agent, who is trying to help him get over his epic writer’s block. 

When he arrives at Christmas Point and finds the stunned Emmie, he immediately feels she’s someone special, but she can’t see beyond the fact that the wrong guy has shown up. Inspired by the small, charming town, Sam decides to stay and convinces Emmie to join him in a little holiday fun while she waits for Grant.

When Grant finally shows up, Emmie is disappointed to discover he’s not enjoying the activities she planned and can’t help wonder if he’s really the one for her. She also can’t get Sam out of her mind and all the great times they had together. With Christmas coming fast, Emmie will need the magic of the season to help steer her in the direction of true love....

Saccharin Sweet...

Wow, this was the most overly sweet book I've ever read. if you are looking for explanations of Christmas Traditions, or remembering how some have lost people but want to keep them alive at Christmas, or you are a Christmas NUT, this book might be for you.

Sweet story, but the narrator...

This is my first novel by Karen Schaler, and definitely won’t be the last. I loved it! I’m a Christmas nut, so this was a perfect holiday story, precious.
The narrator does a beautiful job with the main character. Her voice is sweet & beautiful, almost angelic. Most of the other female characters sound a little sketchy, but okay...
That being said, the narrator is horrible at male voices, just awful. Not one single male character could be as attractive as the author describes (male model material) and talk that atrociously! You imagine Matthew McConaughey, but when they speak, you see Cousin Eddie.

Finding Christmas

I absolutely loved this audiobook, with Sam getting the clues that were supposed to go to Grant, there was a mixup. But, I loved this audiobook so much with all the good humor, and the laughing from each of them. Since they both found Christmas together, I hope, one day that they will get married and live happily ever after.

Pass

I really didn’t enjoy this story. The main character was selfish, self centered, and whiney.

I loved Sam and think he deserved so much better.

Narration

the narrator was overly dramatic 100% of the time. a change in tone would have been better. found myself rolling my eyes all time at the way words were delivered.
