The Thousand Pound Christmas
ONE SMALL TOWN. ONE BIG CHALLENGE. GAME ON.
After her small town is mocked online, a rookie mayor accepts a challenge to help her community lose one thousand pounds by Christmas Day.
Meet Rachel Presley. Single mom and small-town mayor. She’s got a job she loves, friends she adores, and family that drives her only moderately crazy. Life is good—until a snarky website slaps the label ‘America’s Chubbiest Town’ on her hometown. Shocking. Outrageous. And an instant viral and media sensation. Guess whose job it is to fix it? Rachel’s.
In the spirit of Bridget Jones's Diary, About a Boy, and Skipping Christmas, THE THOUSAND POUND CHRISTMAS is a fresh, irreverent, and hilarious look at love, friendship, and family. Add a few dating disasters, small-town quirkiness, and the joy of discovering happiness where you least expect it, and you’ve got a holiday read with a big heart… and a little bite.
