Macie Zimmerman would love to get married and start a family. But she's sick of having hope that something will work out. All she needs is a good six months of no dating-- time she could spend building her business, Paws and Relax, and hanging out with the animals who show her all the love she needs-- to be able to face it again. If only she keep everyone in town from trying to set her up on dates.
High school teacher Aaron Hall plans to never get married. He tried that once, and it ended up being just as bad as his parents' marriage. But that doesn't stop all his married friends from trying to convince him otherwise. And worst of all, his students are determined to find him a wife before the end of the school year.
This Christmas, Macie and Aaron are teaming up to make everyone believe they're dating each other, so they'll quit trying to line them up with others. But as this fake relationship takes them to friend parties, town parties, Macie's family party, and his school's winter formal, and "fake" starts to feel "real," can they overcome the obstacles in their way?
