Sydney Ragsdale is looking for a fresh start far away from her controlling ex-husband and the self-doubt that has plagued her since the divorce. Returning to her childhood home in Hopewell, North Carolina, is just what her soul needs. Praying some Christmas magic will follow her, she moves with her daughter to a farmhouse that once belonged to her grandparents. While there Sydney finds solace working at the Book Bea, her favorite bookstore.

Single dad Kevin MacAlee, Mac to his friends, is the local high school history teacher and baseball coach. He is also the town’s best-kept secret–he has been playing Santa since his son was born twelve years ago. Mac loves the enchantment of the season and wants his son to share in his joy.

When a catastrophe forces the Book Bea to close before the end of the year, everyone in the small town is feeling the loss. While Sydney is already off-balance from the bad news, her ex-husband breaks a promise to their daughter that sends her running away and threatens the relationship that she has begun with Mac.

As Sydney and Mac try to figure out what their next steps are together, they soon discover that there’s always hope at Christmas.
