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

Synopsis

What Light by Jay Asher

Sierra's family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon - it's an idyllic place for a girl to grow up, except that every year they have to pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season. So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas. And leaving one always means missing the other. Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life begins to eclipse the other...

Reviews

What Light is a sweet, aching tale of first love and forgiveness. It's about second chances and learning to see others for who they really are. I laughed, I cheered, I cried, and oh did I fall in love with Sierra, Caleb, and this exquisitely lovely story. Jennifer Niven, NY Times bestselling author of All the Bright Places
