Holly Kuhn is on the hunt for The Tree, but could she possibly find The One along the way?
Next to Santa Claus, Holly Kuhn has one of the most important Christmas jobs out there. She’s the Director of Horticulture at Rockefeller Center, which means she’s in charge of finding the biggest and most perfect Norway spruce and transporting it to Manhattan. When she stumbles upon The Tree of her dreams on an idyllic Massachusetts dairy farm, Miss Christmas—as she’s called—is on seventh heaven. That is, until she meets the farm’s owner, handsome Sam McCary, and discovers he doesn’t share her holiday spirit.
Will Holly be able to convince him to share his tree with the world? Or will workaholic Holly learn that sometimes there’s something even more important than tinsel-trapped success?
Join Holly and Sam—along with a colorful supporting cast and charming small town—as they discover that Christmas miracles are all around us, if we’re only willing to see them in plain sight.
Holly is the Director of Horticulture at Rockefeller Center a.k.a she finds the gigantic Christmas tree and makes sure it gets decorated properly. If you're like me then you had no idea that there was such a job. While this might not seem like it would be such a big thing it is, Holly's job consumes her, it's all she thinks about the whole year.
We first meet her when she is on vacation with her best friend who insists she stops thinking about it and instead enjoys vacation. While Holly does do that somewhat as soon as they get to the airport she gets a call from her assistant who tells her that he thinks he has found the tree. As soon as Holly sees the photo she loves it and immediately leaves the airport, rents a car and goes to Klaus, Massachusetts.Once there she meets Sam the owner of the tree, who lets her look at the tree, but insists that she can't have it as it's a part of the farm and won't be leaving it any time soon. With the help of George (Sam's Dad) Holly gets the family to take a vote on if the tree should go or stay and the majority rule would win. That is until she herself has a change of heart and decides she just can't do it unless everyone wants to.
While I won't tell what happens or what that brings. I will say that this was a very nice story that wasn't to focused on romance and instead family, and what it means when you truly care of something, even if it is just a tree.
