We love a good Hallmark Channel original movie. So when we heard that Lacey Baker was going to write a novel based on the happenings in the enchanting town of Evergreen, of course we were interested. We remembered Eliot and Hannah, the two protagonists featured in both the films and in her new book, so naturally we wanted to pick the author’s brain a little. Does Lacey think it is important to have a partner who has similar interests to our own? Also, how does having our own dreams and goals foster a healthy relationship? And how do these themes play into her novel and her own life? Find out in Lacey’s exclusive guest post! We hope you enjoy it. —J&H
