When the high school’s float explodes five days before the National Farmer’s Day parade, Principal Calvin Finkenbinder sees his chance at the promotion to Superintendent disintegrate. Unless he enlists the help of Ellie Bright, the most annoying, disorganized and kissable woman he knows.



Short Summary

Despite his reservations about single mom, Ellie Bright, the principal, Calvin Fink, offers to let her honor-roll daughter off the hook for after-school detentions if Mrs. Bright will have a float for the school done by Friday.

The float is finally made and is a success. Fink and Ellie have seen that despite their totally opposite personalities, their strengths buffer each others' weaknesses and they work well together. They have fallen in love.


The story is set on a small Christmas tree farm and the surrounding rural area in the rolling hills and Appalachian mountains of Central Pennsylvania
