This year, if Hadley wrote her dream Christmas list, it would go something like this:
1. Spend every waking – and sleeping – moment with her incredibly gorgeous boyfriend, Will.
2. Figure out what’s been bugging him lately. Yes, going away to college has been tough…but it’s time they reconnected.
3. Enjoy a sparkling Christmas in New York City, gazing at the Rockefeller tree, going ice skating, and drinking steaming mugs of cocoa in Central Park.
So, driving off to spend Christmas in a rustic cabin in the woods wasn’t exactly the plan. But when it comes to her irresistible, and at times, impossible boyfriend, nothing’s ever that simple. And as fantasies of an icy Times Square are replaced by a clumsily decorated tree, making snowmen and the warmth of a log fire, Hadley feels herself falling in love all over again.
Except does Will have something to tell her that could change Hadley’s happily-ever-after Christmas dreams into a not-so-winter wonderland after all?

I asked Katlyn, 'why did you choose to set the novella around Christmastime?'
When I finished, This Summer, I contemplated what I wanted to write for my next project. I wasn’t quite ready to take a jump into another full-length novel yet after a full year of writing four novels so I thought about writing a novella. And I’d spent a lot of time with Will and Hadley that I wanted to see what was beyond the summer. How would they handle moving to a new city together? What challenges would they face? The next step was to brainstorm where and when I wanted to set it. I could have easily built up a perfect story around Manhattan since there’s so much to do, and I even contemplated doing that with a Christmas story centered around Will and Hadley in the Big Apple. But while dreaming up ideas, I envisioned the perfect winter vacation for my lovebirds. After a hectic few months of school and work for my characters, I felt they would need to get out of the hustle and bustle and get back to basics with their relationship. And what better place than a romantic holiday in a secluded cabin? I sprinkled the magic of Christmas and all the hope it brings into the story and it shaped into the perfect idea in my head. I love watching Christmas movies and reading Christmas books over and over each year, and I’m adding This Christmas to that list as I hope you will as well!
