Coming home for Christmas goes from holiday cheer to the absolute worst when ex-besties collide.

Monique Lovelace plans to go to Memphis to help her parents downsize and celebrate the last Christmas in her childhood home. But an accident, an encounter with Alex, an ex-friend who ghosted her, and recruitment for a festival were not on her agenda.

Alex Patterson never thought he'd see Monique again and make amends for walking away from their friendship without an explanation. So, when they are paired up for the Merry Memphis Christmas Festival, he believes it’s a God-given chance to make amends.

In five short days, Monique’s vacation goes from bad to the absolute worst. But when the spirit of Christmas and meddling family members conspire, Monique and Alex must confront their past.

Friendship and forgiveness are gifts not tucked under a tree. But are ten years apart and unspoken hurts too much to heal. Or could the spirit of Christmas weave its magic, and offer a chance at forgiveness and love that they never saw coming?

Best Worst Christmas Ever is a dual POV, enemies-to-more, second opportunity for a first chance at love, inspirational romance.
