Kerri Williams and Jon Romano broke up professionally and personally after failing to make it as a screenwriting duo and as a couple. Several years later, Kerri must put her East Coast teaching career, her new fiancé, and her Christmas traditions on hold after an old rom-com script she and Jon penned together is suddenly greenlit for immediate production in Los Angeles. Kerri finds that Jon is still pining for her after all these years, and to make matters worse, their pilot’s tempestuous star Amari is convinced that Kerri and Jon are a perfect engaged couple who must stay on set to inspire her. Acting like the perfect couple Amari believes them to be leads to Kerri and Jon realizing that maybe they have been right for each other all this time.
VERDICT This soapy rom-com from married screenwriting couple Juliet and Keith Giglio (The Summer of Christmas) may appeal to library patrons looking for read-alikes for Jenny Bayliss or Sophie Cousens.
