Finding Christmas


Good morning everyone!

I hope your week is off to a great start. Today I wanted to feature Finding Christmas by Karen Schaler. I found it an absolutely enchanting book that made my heart ring with jingle bells and made me excited for the holiday season! The main protagonist, Emmie, has such a wholesome character and an infectious love of Christmas that will stir all bookish hearts. With Finding Christmas, I believe author Karen Schaler is the true Miss Christmas who can create these delightful stories and transport readers directly to Christmas Point.

About the Book

Finding Christmas

by Karen Schaler

Paperback: 384 pages Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks

(October 15, 2019)

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…
