Actress Kara Kensington flies to New Hope, Wisconsin, where she'll spend the winter holidays filming a movie. Her entire career depends on the success of the feel-good story based on her best friend's life. To salvage her strained friendship with Dani, Kara asks the cute guy from the flight to act as her new boyfriend. But the longer she spends with him, the less she's acting.
For Chef Scott Neil, his holidays aren't only about family togetherness. He wants Aunt Shirley and Uncle Ted to retire. When he's asked to fake a relationship with Kara, he agrees. As he gets drawn into Kara's production, he questions what is real and what's just for show. Only a fool would fall in love with America's sweetheart.

“Are you visiting friends or family?”
Her instinct was to say both. But her relationship with Dani remained shaky. With any luck, a byproduct of her nearly month-long stay would be reestablishing their friendship.
“Rather complicated answer?”
Swallowing, she faced him. “It didn’t used to be.”
“Ah, the traveling-for-the-holidays-to-rebuild-a-relationship storyline.” He stroked his chin. “I’ve probably seen that movie.”
She flinched. His casual tone brushed close to the truth. Did he recognize her? Storyline was an industry word. She didn’t want to keep her identity a secret per se. For a few hours, she relished the rare chance of honesty without judgment. A simple Internet search yielded a host of articles over the past year about her project. The opinions spanned the spectrum from hope to scorn.
Was he in the business? How far out of the loop was she if she didn’t know him? After falling off the lists of stars to watch, she hadn’t paid particular attention to those rising in the rankings. For years, she used to scour the listings of up-and-coming directors and producers. “She created dossiers on names she didn’t recognize and studied the faces until she could confidently feign an acquaintance in person. This new movie will propel me back to the top.
“I’m visiting family. My aunt and uncle.”
She relaxed her shoulders. Her companion seemed determined to hold a conversation. What was the harm in exchanging a few standard pleasantries?
