Something About a Holiday Affair

by Stephanie Queen

Let me tell you a little something about Holiday Affair, the movie and my new novella available now in Love, Christmas 2.

Old Black & White Movies Bring the Holidays Home

My story is inspired by an old black and white holiday movie I’d seen for the first time last year. Holiday Affair, the movie, hasn’t left me since then. It’s set in New York City, as many of my all-time favorite Christmas movies are. It’s essentially about a young woman who chooses an inappropriate stranger who speaks to her heart over a practical old acquaintance who speaks to her head.

In my story, Melissa, who’d been financially successful and living her dream, finds herself suddenly penniless and homeless in New York City on Christmas eve. She’s proud and determined to do anything to claw her way back until a chance meeting with a heart-throbbing Uber driver (got to have the modern twist!), a completely inappropriate man, changes everything.

Of course I added to and subtracted from the original story. In my version, Melissa doesn’t have a young boy but she does have wealthy friends, although she’s too proud to ask them for help. She’s a little too materialistic and a lot of fun in a new adult woman in New York City way. The story is part of my Margo & George hot new adult romantic comedy series.

A Sequel Will Be Coming After the Holidays

But the most important thing I want you to know about this story is how incredible an experience it was to write. If every story I wrote was this exciting and enjoyable and easy to write, I would have written a hundred novels by now. There was something magical in the experience of writing this one for me and so I am dying to write the sequel about Melissa and her inappropriate Uber driver.

I hope the story is as magical an experience for readers when they read it in Love, Christmas 2.
