We are absolutely delighted to announce that Chantel Guertin’s IT HAPPENED ONE CHRISTMAS (world ex. Germany) has been acquired by Bhavna Chauhan at Doubleday Canada for publication October 2023!

IT HAPPENED ONE CHRISTMAS is a charming holiday rom-com about a big-city film director who must convince the dreamy, yet grumpy, mayor of a small town to permit her to shoot her Christmas movie in his hometown, perfect for fans of Hallmark holiday movies and readers of Maggie Knox’s ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS.

Chantel Guertin is the author of multiple novels, including Instamom and Stuck in Downward Dog for adults and the Pippa Greene YA series. She has worked as a beauty expert on Canada’s number-one daytime talk show, The Marilyn Denis Show, and as an editor of various magazines. She lives in Toronto with her family.

Deal arranged by Samantha Haywood.

Congratulations Chantel!
