Christine's list of resolutions contains many clich├ęs. Try something new. Buy a pair of heels. Get a promotion. Fall in love.

Seems simple, especially when Christine meets Patrick, the man who could be Mr. Right. He's got the right credentials: a job, a sense of humor, a love of all things Indiana Jones, and best of all, he's actually taller than Christine. But busy schedules take over and get in the way of Patrick and Christine's budding romance.
Life interferes, as it has a way of doing, and Christine wants to throw in the towel. Is the magic of the Christmas season enough to renew Christine's faith in love? 

Being a list-maker myself, Completions and Connections appealed to me immediately. I’m so glad I found this book - it was exactly what I needed. It had me giggling from the first few pages, and it was such a quick, fun read.

I loved the premise of the book - starting with a list of things to do in the coming year, and then tracking the progress with one month per chapter. One of the common complaints about novellas is there’s no depth or there's insuffient time to get to truly know the characters, but I felt like Christine was a friend, someone I knew well, telling me the story of how she met this cute guy and had all these missed connections between unforeseen mishaps and real life getting in the way.

Funny, cute, and romantic, Completions and Connections is the perfect book to kick off the holiday season. I had a smile on my face most of the time I was reading (when I wasn’t cringing over Christine’s misadventures), and had a case of the warm fuzzies when I finished reading. A definite must read this holiday season!
