Christmas is approaching and the entire city of Stockholm is preparing for the approaching holidays. Alice is usually a major fan of everything that sparkles and the bright decorations, but this year is different. She is having a hard time getting over the betrayal she was exposed to last Christmas and so she chooses to hide away in her tiny sublet apartment.
To make ends meet while in hiding she works as a freelance editor taking on aspiring authors and helping them with their manuscripts, a job far away from the promising career she had built before everything that went down last year. Since the bank account is nearly empty, she takes on an assignment against her will helping the renowned crime writer Samuel Engman with his new manuscript. He has decided to write feel-good for the first time and is struggling with the new genre. Fiction will become reality when the two of them work on building his story from scratch and romance sparks.
As Christmas gets closer Alice begins to soften up, but will she be able to put last year’s betrayal behind and start trusting people again?
