The Christmas Wish: Lindsey Kelk in Conversation with Alisha Rai

Published on Dec 3, 2022

Lindsey Kelk, the Sunday Times bestselling author of books including the “I Heart” series, “On A Night Like This,” “The Christmas Wish,” and “One in a Million,” will be at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena on Tuesday, Dec. 6, to discuss his new book, “The Christmas Wish,” starting at 7 p.m.

She will be in conversation with fellow author Alisha Rai.

In “Christmas Wish,” newly single lawyer Gwen Baker is hoping that a family Christmas – countryside, a mountain of food and festive films – will salve the sting of her career hanging by a thread and her heart being trampled on. Because everyone else has their life sorted: even Dev, her boy-next-door crush, is now a tall, dark and handsome stranger with a fiancée. She can’t help wishing her future was clearer. Then Gwen wakes up to discover it’s Christmas day all over again. Like Groundhog Day but with eggnog. And family arguments. On repeat. As she figures out how to escape her own particular Christmas hell, Dev is the one bright spot. He might be all grown-up but underneath he’s just as kind and funny as she remembers. Maybe, just maybe, her heart can be mended after all. But how do you fall in love with someone who can’t remember you from one day to the next?

Kelk is co-host for the award-winning beauty podcast, “Full Coverage,” and “Tight and Fights,” a pro-wrestling podcast on the Maximum Fun network.

Born and raised in South Yorkshire, Kelk lived in Nottingham, London and New York before settling in LA, where she lives with her husband and two very rude cats.

Attendance at the event on Tuesday is free. For more information, call (626) 449-5320 or visit
