Author Spotlight: Sarah Price’s “Plain Christmas”


It’s been nine years since Cuban singer Alejandro Diaz’s limousine collided with a young Amish woman named Amanda Beiler as she was crossing a New York City street—an accident that ignited the couple’s cross-cultural romance. Amanda loves her husband and their three children, but their fast-paced, lavish Miami lifestyle troubles her. Will her kids grow up never knowing what it’s like to simply be, without chauffeurs, social media, and paparazzi complicating their lives? When she receives a letter from her mother in Pennsylvania inviting the family to visit for Christmas, she seizes the chance to show her children a different way of life. — Synopsis: Plain Christmas by Sarah Price.

Sarah’s inspiration for the book was unique!

“I had a celebrity crush on Pitbull and he was performing in Manhattan at Rockefeller Plaza for a morning news program, but I had to teach at course. As I was walking to work, I was complaining to someone on my cell phone that Pitbull was less than one mile away from me but I had to teach. The person joked that maybe his limo would hit me when I was crossing the street and the light bulb went off in my head,” tells Price.

This romance story falls into her Plain Fame series, but can be read as a standalone. Learn more online at
