Last year Liz got divorce papers for Christmas. This year, she’ll get the gift of love…
When an unexpected divorce leaves her with nothing but an empty house, Liz Delaney decides to finally pursue her lifelong dream of opening a café in her small town. By day she’ll serve fancy coffee drinks and by night there will be themed cocktails, music, and art. The only thing standing in her way? A grinchy bureaucrat named Nathan Holly.
Despite his festive last name, Nathan hates Christmas. He also hates businesses that serve liquor. He grew up in a town that was devastated by unemployment, alcoholism, and violence, and now he’s on a one-man mission to protect other small towns from suffering the same fate. The grumpy county employee comes to the mountains ready to deny Liz’s liquor license, but to his dismay, things don’t go according to plan. First, he’s stranded by a winter storm in a town without a hotel, then he falls head over heels in love with the feisty café owner who grudgingly offers him a room.
Will Santa bring these two jaded souls a holiday romance that lasts?
