You did it! We figured this one out! It is a truth universally acknowledged (by me for certain) that the Bitchery pretty much knows everything, and really, it's true. Scroll down to see the solution for this HaBO - and many thanks!
This HaBO request is from Tee, who’s searching for a holiday romance:
So this was my first romance, stolen from my mother. It was a Harlequin about a woman and a man both going home for Christmas, but when they get to the airport, the weather is so bad that the flight is cancelled. It’s a couple days before Christmas and there is a blizzard. They both race to the rental car counter but surprise! There is only one car left and they agree to share and that he’ll drop her off. I think it’s set in the Midwest, but it’s definitely the United States.
They both have some important reasons to be home, but I can’t remember any of them.
Anywho, they both stay in motels and drive through the night(s) while getting to know each other. At one point, they are very glad to see a McDonald’s which they identify by its ‘signature golden arches’. They also do the frickfrack in one of the motels.
I can’t remember how it ends, but I think they meet up after Christmas.
Sound familiar to anyone?
