Losing a parent is never easy, and during the holidays the emptiness seems magnified. Local newspaper owner Neil Bailey knows that first-hand. That’s why he’s determined to help his neighbour, Dr. Charli Prescott, find the meaning of the season. Luckily he has enough cheer to go around—and the recipe for perfect cocoa. If that isn’t enough to get Charli into the spirit, the town also has a Secret Santa. Everyone's buzzing with news of the large anonymous donation and, once Neil promises to discover Santa’s identity, his paper’s circulation numbers sky-rocket. It’s his duty to report the truth. Except, as he gets closer to Charli, he’s sure she’s keeping something from him. All he can try to do is keep his journalistic integrity intact… while protecting the woman he thought was his Christmas miracle.
