Holly was pretty nice, a little pushy, and she butts heads with Sam, the cute guy who doesn't want to see the tree cut down. The problem with this book was, I was pretty much on Sam's side of things. Why cut down a beautiful tree like that? Holly made her case, but it didn't really convince me. Sam spent most of his time glaring at Holly until he decides that they should start dating, and it felt a little out of nowhere.
This being a Christmas romance, everything ends on a happy note, and once things moved to Rockefeller Center it was cute. The celebrity cameos (Taylor Swift and Al Roker-Yay...Matt Lauer-Ugh) surprised me, but they were fun. The ending was sweet, just like I expected.
Holly is a tree girl and her job is to search the country for the perfect tree for each Christmas. Having grown up on a Christmas tree farm, it's in her blood. The hunt isn't always easy--there are certain height requirements to fill, a certain look to maintain, and other facts that go into choosing the tree. When she received an email from a young boy to come and look at their tree, she does, leaving straight from her vacation. But the owner, the boy's uncle, Sam, isn't so keen on giving this large tree up. His father decides that the family will vote and it's up to Holly to convince them why they should donate this tree.
Holly is very dedicated to what she does and is very good at debate. She comes across as all business, but this venture helps soften her a little and helps her see the bigger picture. Sam is rough and gruff and does some softening of his own along the way. I enjoyed seeing the transformations of these very independent characters. As a novella, there's not a lot of depth, but there is a fun, unique, fluffy story awaiting the reader.
Content: mild-moderate language; no violence or religious elements; mild romance (kissing). Clean!
In summation, the story gets better as it goes and has some really interesting things to say. While it is not perfect, I tacked on the fifth star because of the honest emotion.
This story starts out on and ocean island where Holly and her friend Erin in July are vacationing at the beach.
Holly is now the new Rockefeller Center tree coordinator and it's her first time choosing the tree. She's grown up around trees her whole life having stepped into her dads shoes at the Christmas tree farm in Ohio.
On their way back to the mainland she gets a text and a picture of the perfect tree and she heads to Klaus, MA where she meets Sam who's land the tree sits on. She stays in town at a relatives house, love the blueberry festival and how the town welcomes her. B&B has everything anybody would ever want.
She is introduced to the father of the land and he and his daughter agree she can come back and spend the whole day with them and get to know them better before they decide.
After she spends the whole day learning about what is important to each one she knows Sam is set against the tree being cut down and she heads to her car in defeat.
Recall letting our tree go as well and that is what touched me about this story. Great timing and like the adventure they all go on from start to finish. Such a magical story.
A wonderful Christmas story. The story of the Rockefeller center tree selection. The story of a perfect tree and the family that owns it. I definitely recommend this for anytime reading, but especially at Christmas
