From the writer of the Netflix sensation, A Christmas Prince, and Christmas Camp, the Hallmark movie and novel, comes a heartwarming new Christmas story, Finding Christmas, showing how sometimes the detour in your journey is the path to true love.

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…

Library Journal


Emmie loves Christmas, but boyfriend Grant is playing workaholic, so she plans a holiday-themed scavenger hunt for him that will end in a romantic, holiday-themed weekend. Instead, best-selling mystery writer Sam follows the clues (he thinks they're from his agent). So what happens when Sam meets Emmie—and when Grant finally does materialize? From the author of the Netflix hit A Christmas Prince; with a 100,000-copy first printing.

Publishers Weekly


Schaler (Christmas Camp) delights with this G-rated holiday-themed contemporary. Christmas-obsessed Seattle philanthropist Emmie Sanders is disappointed when her workaholic boyfriend, Grant, can’t get into the holiday spirit. Bestselling mystery author Sam Riley is suffering from writer’s block after the death of his sister, who loved Christmas. Then Sam gets the wrong present from the concierge in his building, a clue that sends him on a scavenger hunt to the appropriately named Christmas Point. He thinks his agent set up the game, but in fact Emmie devised it for Grant, and she’s the prize at the end. As Sam and Emmie delight in all of the activities in the charming small town—ice skating, snowman building, cookie baking—Sam’s heart begins to heal and Emmie learns that love often shows up in unexpected places. Schaler’s smart, appealing protagonists will keep readers turning the pages, and the plotting is pitch-perfect, leading to an inevitable but charming happily-ever-after. Sweet as a Hallmark Channel movie, but never saccharine, this innocent tale will satisfy fans of both romance and Christmas. Agent: Jessica Regel, Foundry Literary + Media. (Oct.)
