Publisher's Summary

Owner of the lone movie theater in Romance, Marianne Carter loves the old movies she shows on the big screen. She’s just struck up an email friendship with a newcomer to town. Unaware of his identity but feeling loyal to him, she fights her attraction to a handsome man she keeps bumping into around town.

Under a false identity, Jack Nelson comes to Romance to investigate the historic movie theater and decide if it should receive the status of a historical landmark. Little does he know the woman sending him charming emails is the same one who owns the theater. 

While Marianne’s theater plays the old classic film The Shop Around the Corner, Marianne and Jack unknowingly play out the same story in real life. Will they figure it out in time to write their own happy ending?

A perfect romantic Christmas story!

Before continuing I have to say that I first read the book and quite a time later got to the audiobook. So, as far as the storyline is concerned, I'm including here my review for the book itself, as posted on

"I devoured this book! Well written, with great characters, and a plot that kept my interest to the end. There are funny moments, serious moments and quite a few twists and turns. Not one to make spoilers, but I really loved the movie references, and I'm not ashamed to admit that I learned quite a few things concerning old movies. I can easily picture this book as a movie of its own!

If you're looking for a romantic, light hearted Christmas read, this is a book for you!"

As far as the audiobook is concerned, I simply loved it! The narator was excellent and it was a great experience adding sound to the words.

Fun Christmas read

This was fun to read. You knew the couple would end up together, but watching them play it out was enjoyable. You were cheering for both of them and both of their stories were believable. Good characters, good setting, and good plot. You should read it now.
