My Rating: 3 Stars
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.
My Review:
One day, I'd love to go to New York City during the holidays and see the huge tree at Rockefeller Center. I've seen pictures of it and have seen it on tv, but I'm sure it's much more glorious in person. I've never really given much thought about where they find a tree of that size each year and how they determine the perfect tree, but this story gave a few insights to that and was very interesting.
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!
