My first lines comes from a book I started reading last night, but will listen to during my drive today:

“Luka, listen.” I lean backward in my chair and fumble for the stack of papers on the file cabinet behind me, cursing under my breath when my fingertips barely glance the corner edge and it goes cascading to the floor in a flurry of white.

Lovelight Farms (Lovelight #1) by B.K. Borison

Published November 10th 2021 by Berkley

Two best friends fake date to reach their holiday happily ever after in this first romantic comedy in the Lovelight series.

A pasture of dead trees. A hostile takeover of the Santa barn by a family of raccoons. And shipments that have mysteriously gone missing. Lovelight Farms is not the magical winter wonderland of Stella Bloomโ€™s dreams.

In an effort to save the Christmas tree farm sheโ€™s loved since she was a kid, Stella enters a contest with Instagram-famous influencer Evelyn St. James. With the added publicity and the $100,000 cash prize, Stella might just be able to save the farm from its financial woes. Thereโ€™s just one problem. To make the farm seem like a romantic destination for the holidays, she lied on her application and said she owns Lovelight Farms with her boyfriend. Onlyโ€ฆthere is no boyfriend.

Enter best friend Luka Peters. He just stopped by for some hot chocolate and somehow got a farm and a serious girlfriend in the process. But fake dating his best friend might be the best Christmas present heโ€™s ever received.

I was recently approved for this book on Netgalley, as it is being reissued. I wanted something light to read for the first few hours of my drive today and I thought this was a perfect book for me.
