Close To You is a contemporary romantic comedy is about a disillusioned academic-turned-tour-guide and an entrepreneur who knows nothing about Tolkien who fall in love on a Tolkien themed tour of New Zealand.
Allison (Allie): New Zealand born and bred she's become a tour guide after her Tolkien-centered academic career unravelled. All she wants is to find a way to rebuild her reputation and career.
Jackson: an Iowa farm boy determined to prove to his small home town he can make it big in business. He just needs a hand from his wealthy and Lord of the Rings obsessed great-uncle to make it happen, except he knows nothing about Tolkien or any of this works.
Since Close To You is set in New Zealand, I'm so thrilled to have Jackson and Allie's adventures unfolding in some of our gorgeous scenery and locations.
