Losing a parent is never easy, and during the holidays the emptiness seems magnified. Local newspaper owner Neil Bailey knows that firsthand. That's why he's determined to help his neighbor, 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 skyrocket. 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 do is try to keep his journalistic integrity intact while protecting the woman he thought was his Christmas miracle.
