Johanna's car breaks down in a snow blizzard on Christmas night, catphobician Lisa receives an uninvited Christmas visit on four velvet paws and Vanessa sits in the dark, as on the 24th of December the electricity in her apartment block turns out. What a nice mess! the women think in the three short stories.
Romantic Junkie Valerie has helped her friend Chris to find her true love. Val still believes in love at first sight and such magical encounters, how Chris experienced them.
But the love is taking its time. And to make it even worse her childhood friend Miri and colleague Sabine, that Val cannot stand since first meeting her, are coming to visit over the bank holiday.
It is all too much for Manuela. She just spent a whole terrible week with her standoffish boss at a trade show and wants nothing more than to crawl into her own bed–but her flight has been overbooked. The airline pays for a night at the airport hotel.
That night, the hotel is hosting a big Halloween party. At the party, she meets an exciting stranger who is hiding her face behind a Venetian mask.
Vivacious Valerie and rather down-to-earth Christine could not be more different, but they are also inseparable friends. They are co-owners of Dreams Take Flight, a travel agency. Valerie firmly believes in the inevitable encounter with her soul mate, the love of her life. Christine dismisses this idea as a flight of fancy, until the day she meets the unexpected love of her life.
