Fresh Fiction Review

Romance Comedy

Katherine hates the Christmas season. Her father died on Christmas. She has yet to achieve his final wish that she make partner at the law firm. Each year, she thinks this is the year that she’ll receive the phone call. But it hasn’t happened yet. And it has cost her things – including her marriage.

She leaves work early one afternoon and gets into a horrific car accident. She hasn’t updated her emergency contact information, so they call Tom, her ex-husband. He’s about the fly home for the holidays and to propose to his girlfriend.

Katherine isn’t allowed to leave the hospital without supervision. She has no family and no real friends. Unless she leaves with Tom, she’ll be forced to spend the night in the hospital. That’s her worst nightmare. She reluctantly agrees to go with Tom, but that means traveling with him.

During their travels, nothing goes right; it’s almost comical. A blizzard hits and everything goes haywire. Katherine is kicked off an airplane because she won’t get off the phone. They must make alternate plans. The forced time together makes them talk about the past and reexamine what went wrong.

EMERGENCY CONTACT is a dual point-of-view story written by Lauren Layne and her husband, Anthony Ledonne. The banter and chemistry between the characters is amazing. I loved how they let in little details of their lives now and in the past when they bicker. I could not imagine a more nightmarish day of travel. This second-chance romance is a funny charming story that will steal the hearts of readers.

From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne—and her real life husband and high school sweetheart, Anthony LeDonne—comes a new holiday romcom that is sure to warm even the coldest heart.

Katherine, an ambitious NYC attorney, gets diagnosed with a concussion and must be monitored for 48 hours to make sure it doesn’t get worse. Unfortunately, she forgot to update her emergency contact so the person they call is her ex-husband, Tom. Unable to be left alone, Katherine reluctantly agrees to travel to Chicago with Tom for the holidays. But thanks to a blizzard, what should have been a quick plane ride turns into an antagonistic overnight misadventure that stirs up old feelings even as Tom prepares to propose to his girlfriend on Christmas Eve.

A delightful meet-cute between The Proposal and Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, Emergency Contact is perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Sally Thorne.
