All it took for Ally to return to Yuletide Creek was the end of a twenty-one-year marriage and the death of her dear grandma who left her the Christmas House.

Ally moves back to Yuletide Creek to live in the house that her grandmother left her.  The town called it Christmas House because it was always beautifully decorated during the holiday season and her grandmother led most of the town's Christmas celebrations.  Ally has left her husband and knows that Christmas House will help her regain her life.  The only problem is that her father still lives there and they have been estranged since he refused to walk her down the aisle when she got married.  Her grandmother's will stipulated that only her son (Ally's father) would be allowed to do any of the renovations that the house needed which meant that they had to work together on projects.  When she first arrived in town, she's amazed that it no longer looks like the vibrant happy town that it was when she was growing up.  Instead, there were a lot of vacant storefronts plus the town Christmas tree wasn't even put up.  When she goes to talk to the town's new mayor, she finds out that he's a real Grinch who has no plans for a tree or any Christmas celebrations.  Ally decides to take on the work of getting a town Christmas tree, start up the normal celebrations plus get Christmas House decorated.  Is it too much work started too late?  Will she be successful in bringing Christmas back to Yuletide Creek and will she be able to make the mayor learn that Christmas is a magical season??

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

Nicole goes back to the home where she grew up in Yuletide Creek after being away for over 20 years.  Her estranged mother had called and asked her to help with the antique shop that she owned.  Nicole wasn't really happy with her life so she agreed to return to help.  Her college-age daughter would join her and her mom over the holidays.  When Nicole first arrives in town, she's dismayed to see the changes in the town.  It's no longer the happy town all decorated for Christmas and she's convinced that there's no way her mother's shop can survive in this broken-down town.  As Ally from book 1 makes changes to the town and starts the Christmas festivities, Nicole begins to change her attitude toward her mother's shop and toward her mother.

When she starts spending time with the handsome man who works at the antique store, her feelings toward the town really begin to change but she's still a real Grinch and not interested in Christmas or finding happiness.  Will the magic of this small town and the people who live there help her find the real magic of the holiday?  Will she be able to find love, hope, and forgiveness?
