Book Summary

Lila Castro loves her small town in Upstate New York that is obsessed with everything Christmas. One of the most famous holiday movies was filmed there and now every year tourists flock to the beautiful town. Lila also works at the Bookworm Inn, where scenes of the movie were filmed. Everything about this holiday season seemed perfect, until Lila’s boss tells her that she can’t work more hours over winter break because there’s a new seasonal worker joining the team.

Enter Teddy Veracruz: the owner’s nephew and a complete pain in the ass. He doesn’t follow directions and refuses to follow Lila’s checklist. One afternoon, Lila and Teddy switch phones, forcing them to get to know the other person instead of making rash judgements. These two will have to see if they can get along and maybe, just maybe, find love along the way.
