Synopsis

Wrapped up in You by Carole Matthews

A Christmas fling, or has Janie found the real thing? Thirty-something hairdresser Janie Johnson's single status is a constant source of gossip for her friends and clients. So after too many nights in with her cat, a blind date disaster and news that her ex is getting married, Janie realises it's time to do something dramatic with her life. Leaving winter behind, Janie takes the plunge and books an exotic holiday. Her friends think she's mad and Janie thinks they may very well be right ...but then she falls head over heels for her tour guide. But can Janie now face spending a snowy Christmas back home without him?
