Christmas Break (up) in New York

I don’t know about Christmas. I think I need some space…

Just after the first Advent calendar window as been opened, Lara Weeks’ boyfriend, Dan has called a time-out. But it can’t be the end. They love each other, right?

Lara needs to make Dan jealous to win him back… but it has to be BIG! At the work Christmas party Lara and best friend, Susie hatch a plan to show Dan just what he's missing, all over social media, direct messaging hot celebrity men of the moment on Twitter, including Hollywood heart throb Seth Hunt. It sounds so the right thing to do after three glasses of Aunt Flora’s homemade mince pie whisky!

Pooling their funds, Lara and Susie head to New York and Susie thinks all her Christmases have come at once. Fifth Avenue shopping, heading to the top of the Empire State and devouring all the food Manhattan has to offer. Except Lara knows this isn’t a Christmas break, it’s a Christmas break-up unless this mission is successful. Can she and her best friend feverishly post enough jealous-making entries on their social media to get Dan’s attention? Or will Lara start to discover there is far more to the world than her chocolate-box village of Appleshaw?
