Get into the Spirit of Christmas! | In a Nutshell: Romancing around the Christmas tree | Seasonal heart-warmer about a head-over-heels holiday romance that seems set to stay alight. While Christmas generally means friends, family, feasting and fun, it also heralds conflict for Sierra. Her family run a Christmas tree farm in Oregon (so far so good), but this means heading to California for the holiday to sell their seasonal wares, which in turn means Sierra never gets to spend Christmas with her friends. But when she overhears her parents discussing whether this might be the last year they can justify coming to California for business reasons, she has to make the most of it, which she does when cute, dimpled Caleb turns up at the lot to buy trees for strangers who can’t afford their own. While all those close to Sierra warn her off getting involved, there’s serious chemistry between them, and both she and Caleb are determined to make the most of their time together. Full of festive fun, friendship and warm-glow-inducing moments, this perfect pick-me-up is as comforting as munching on a warm mince pie. ~ Joanne Owen
