Butternut Lake is so beautiful at Christmas—from the delightfully decorated shops, to the cozy homes with their twinkling lights outside, to the lake itself. And this year so much is happening!
A wedding: Caroline meticulously plans her perfect Christmastime dream wedding to Jack, remarrying him after many years apart.
A baby: Allie and Walker are expecting the best Christmas gift of all—their first baby together.
A reunion: Daisy, Caroline and Jack's daughter, is returning home after a long semester away at college.
But what's Christmas without complications? Walker smothers Allie with worry; Daisy pines for her true love, Will, away in the army. And then the unthinkable happens—and Caroline's wedding plans are ruined.
And just when it seems all is lost, the people of Butternut Lake come together to give their friends the greatest gifts of all. . . .
