A beautiful, uplifting holiday story from bestselling author Juliet Madison about a lonely writer, her grandmother's ghost, a road trip, and twelve different Daves.
Abby Solomon may write happy–ever–afters for a living, but doesn't believe she'll have her own. But then a surprise visit from her grandmother's ghost sets her off on a journey she'll never forget.
Grandma Charlotte wants to find her first love, Dave, who she mistakenly thought had died in World War II. A quick trawl through the Yellow Pages yields a list of twelve possibilities, and Abby and Charlotte set off on a Christmas road trip – twelve Daves over twelve days along the sun–drenched east coast of Australia.
With just over a week to make the meeting happen, Abby has to meet a dozen Daves – some sweet, some quirky, some downright dangerous – while trying to honour her book deadline and enduring the awkward challenges of having a ghost as a travelling companion.
But when she comes across a young doctor who looks like the hero in one of her novels, Abby has the chance to discover that true love transcends time and space, and that happy endings aren't only to be found between the pages of a book.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Abby is a successful romance author, but her love life was anything but successful. One day, old letters from her grandma sparked a curiosity over “Dave.” Suddenly, Grandma’s ghost appears and urges her to find Dave, her first love. But why? The woman’s dead now. And so begins a LONG and arduous search across country, searching through 12 Daves, trying to find THE Dave that got away 70 + years ago. OMG! Why, for the love of god? Why’s a dead broad seeking a live, old man? It’s not like they could be together now. Obviously, I had a hard time grasping this concept. This story was so very, very SLOW. But I guess this journey gave Abby ideas for her upcoming book and taught her the true meaning of Christmas—that you need love and stuff. Not as witty as I thought it would be—just a long, long search.
