Christmas— It’s the most wonderful time of the year… except it’s not. Not for Nicole at least.

A desperate call from her estranged mother takes Nicole to her childhood home of Yuletide Creek, a place she hasn’t been to in over twenty years.

She remembers that the quaint little town transformed into a winter wonderland, the annual tree lighting in the town square and the towns’ folks baking up a storm for the gingerbread and cookie contests among other activities hosted at the Christmas House. But she also remembers the reason she left and never came back.

Surprised at how decrepit and forlorn the old coastal town appears now, she wonders about its future and is convinced her mother should sell the antique shop and retire.

What Nicole didn’t anticipate was the handsome gentleman working for her mother challenging her ideologies of the yuletide season, or the time spent obsessing over the old root cellar hatch in the store that won’t budge and an old jewelry box that belongs in the trash.

When her mother’s store is broken into it’s up to Nicole to find out if the mysterious developer snooping around town had anything to do with it or if her mother’s employee is truly who he says he is.

Is Nicole up to the challenge of finding the true meaning of Christmas in time to forge a path that leads to love, hope and forgiveness? Who knows?

Maybe Yuletide Creek is just the place to restore her joy.
