Publisher's Summary

2014 American Christian Fiction Writers' Genesis Award Finalist in the Novella Category

Writing happy endings is easy. Living one is the hard part.

Georgia Cole - known in Hollywood as the "Holiday Goddess" - has made a name for herself writing heartwarming screenplays chock-full of Christmas clichés, but she has yet to experience the true magic of the season. So, when her eccentric grandmother volunteers her to direct a pageant at Georgia's hometown community theater, she is less than thrilled. To make matters worse, she'll be working alongside Weston James, her childhood crush and the one man she has tried desperately to forget.

Now, facing memories of a lonely childhood and the humiliation of her last onstage performance, seven years earlier, Georgia is on the verge of a complete mistletoe meltdown. As Weston attempts to thaw the frozen walls around her heart, Georgia endeavors to let go of her fears and give love a second chance. If she does, will she finally believe that Christmas can be more than a cliché?

Great plot and not overly religious!

I loved this book. The characters and plot were well developed. I loved the sweetness of the story and appreciate that while God/church was present, it didn't define the novel. Great read.

A charming Christmas story!

Oh, the power of words - The words Georgia's mother told her over and over as she grew up drove her to L.A but what happens when she's forced back to her hometown?
A charming Christmas story set in a close knit town. A community that comes together for a sick little girl. I liked the sweet little voice the narrator did for Savannah!

So so

I read Christmas romances for the tear jerky happy ending. This had a happy ending but it didn't remotely make me feel like crying. The story was okay and since I now own it I might listen to it again next year.
I ended up really liking the reader. Her voice was close to being annoying but missed it and actually was endearing. I wanted to be her friend. And I'll listen to the story again next year because of Amy.

Just ok

I found this novella sweet, but not very interesting. The plot was really cliche and i had to take several breaks before finishing it. The narrator was pretty good, but couldn't do much with the material available to her.
