If only life was a cheesy holiday movie…
Unfortunately for Aspen Harris, her life doesn't even come close.
Finding herself unemployed just before the holidays, she has no choice but to move back home and in her parents' house. And that means leaving behind her best friend Gabriel and all her dreams of someday owning her own chocolate shop. So when Gabe suggests she come to Silver Bell Falls to spend the holidays with his family, it seems like the perfect distraction.
What's so great about holiday movies?
Don't people realize that living in an actual Christmas town is anything but magical?
Every year, Gabriel Andrews goes home to Silver Bell Falls to help his father run the family Christmas tree lot. When Aspen tells him she has to move to the other side of the country after losing her job, he suggests she come home with him for the holidays. It's the perfect way to spend as much time together as possible before a whole country separates them.
But this is Silver Bell Falls at Christmas time…between a mother with matchmaking tendencies, tight living quarters and far too much chocolate, it doesn't take very long for life to start imitating art.

Beautiful story of love and friendship! Light hearted and fun to read.
What a way to wrap up a much-loved series! My very favorite trope, friends to lovers, is front and center when Gabe and Aspen spent the holiday season in his home town of Silver Bell Falls, before Aspen moves home to her family in San Diego. Having been in each other’s daily lives since college, either is happy about the big move, but they are also slow to make the changes and take the chances needed to keep Aspen on the east coast and the two of them together.
Aspen is all about Christmas, romance and Hallmark movie themes, but Gabe is definitely less so. But he’s always willing to indulge Aspen in her obsessions and is her biggest cheerleader in regards to her chocolatier career. While Gabe willingly comes home to help on his family’s Christmas tree farm, he’s usually dry anxious to leave after the holidays. But seeing Aspen’s excitement in all things Silver Bell Falls, he’s starting to change his tune.
The Christmas Plan is full of holiday joy, lots of favorite former couple cameos and funny Aspen and Gabe moments. As always, I was swept away on a sleigh ride of Christmas fun that I always expect and rely on from Samantha Chase. While this series may be over, I have a feeling that next year will bring just as much holiday hijinks from one of my most loved authors!
Return to Silver Bell Falls!!
This is a great best friends to lovers holiday romance. A story of the love shared by friends turning into a real love shared by couples. It has conflicts, misunderstandings, truths and love. I was rooting for Gabe and Aspen the whole way through. These two were perfect for each other, it just took them a little time to realize it. The perfect holiday romance.
