A contemporary, holiday fantasy with a new twist on A Christmas Carol and It’s A Wonderful Life.
Abby Nicholson used to love Christmas. Until she didn’t.
After leaving Winter Glen, the small town famous for its Christmas celebration and her family’s greeting card company, Abby is forced to return to the home she left behind when the unexpected passing of her father thrusts the business into her hands.
Turning her back on the magic of the holiday beloved by her father and the town, she decides to sell the business. Signing the paperwork with the very pen her father used to create it, she is shocked to discover her hometown has become a whole new world.
One where Christmas has vanished!
Now stuck in a place devoid of hope, joy, and the spirit of the season, Abby sees family and friends altered in the most terrible of ways.
Determined to set things right, though unsure how, Abby takes out her father’s pen and begins to draw. When she realizes her art is coming to life, she sets out to recreate the holiday and bring back the most wonderful time of the year.
But some are determined to keep an iron grip on the town and will do anything in their power to stop her.

Love watching Hallmark Christmas movies?!?! Well, that is how Write Christmas by Thommy Hutson read. I am such a sucker for these holiday movies, especially when there is a twist of Christmas magic intertwined into the story. This was an enjoyable and heartwarming holiday tale with hints of those Christmas classic stories that many of us grew up reading and/or watching.
The world-building is set up well in the prologue and in the first few chapters to give reader(s) that winter holiday season atmosphere. Although the beginning felt slow, I thought the descriptive flow in the start sets up the reader(s) for the holiday feel-good story filled with magic and a little bit of romance. Many of the characters are well-developed and relatable on many levels.
I was so drawn into Abby's journey that I felt like I was in Winter Glen, both versions, with her. So, yeah, Write Christmas read so much like those magical Hallmark Christmas movies that I enjoy watching and escaping to during the holiday season. So... Love watching those warmhearted holiday stories filled with Christmas magic?!? Then, reader(s) will definitely delight in reading Write Christmas by Thommy Hutson.
