*Thank you to Karen Schaler, Little, Brown Book Group UK and Netgalley for my copy of this book*

This year, Emmie can’t wait to share her favourite Christmas traditions with her boyfriend, Grant. So when his hectic work schedule has him more ‘bah humbug’ than ‘ho, ho, ho,’ Emmie creates a holiday-themed scavenger hunt to help him find his festive spirit.

But Emmie’s plan for a romantic mountaintop rendezvous backfires when a mix-up has the wrong guy showing up at Christmas Point. Sam, a bestselling mystery writer, thinks Emmie’s clever clues are from his agent, to help him get over his epic writer’s block. When the two come face-to-face, Emmie sees Sam only as the wrong guy, but Sam, intrigued by Emmie, decides to stay, hoping the small, enchanting town will help inspire a new book idea.

When Grant keeps getting delayed by work, he tells Emmie to start doing the special Christmas activities she planned without him. Emmie is disappointed, until Sam joins her and she starts wondering if the wrong guy is really Mr. Right.

With Christmas coming fast, Emmie will need the magic of the season to help steer her heart in the direction of true love . .

Finding Christmas was the absolute perfect Christmas read to get you in to the holiday spirits and a Hallmark movie just waiting to happen!

I absolutely adored Emmie, she was a fabulous female lead, who really had her life together and I applauded her for that, however, I also wanted to shout at the book multiple times because she was TOO organised and for the wrong person! Her creativity for the scavenger hunt was so well thought out and made me want to jump in to the book to get involved as well – plus, Christmas Point and the people living in it sounded like an absolute dream. Ice-skating, cookie making, tree lighting ceremony’s – it is literally every perfect Christmas event all put together in one book! 

Sam was a gorgeous male lead, who was at the wrong place but at the most perfect of times, making my heart swoon for him and Emmie. Their friendship was meant to be from the start and progressed wonderfully, as Sam contributed in events Emmie had organised for her and her overly work-obsessed boyfriend who never turned up.

I also loved when the author mentioned her previous work during a binge-watching session between Emmie and her best friend including; A Christmas Prince and Christmas Camp.

A great, easy read about the wrong person turning up at the right time and I couldn’t have felt more joy whilst reading it if I tried!
