    Summary

    When Abby Griffin decides to move back to Arkadia – the quaint, Vermont town where she grew up - she’s looking for a fresh start, not a trip down memory lane. But a snowstorm damages the roof of her new house, sending Abby to the only inn Arkadia has to offer: Eden Tree Lodge, a historic guesthouse and Christmas tree farm. Marcus Kane, the owner, inherited the business from his mother, and he and the Griffins were once friends; but they parted on bad terms and haven’t spoken in years. Abby’s hopes of avoiding an awkward run-in are dashed when she arrives on his doorstep with a trunk full of suitcases and finds neither Marcus, nor his jealous fiancée Diana, at all pleased to see her. Meanwhile, her daughter Clarke’s disappointment at spending Christmas in a hotel increases when she learns that Kane refuses to celebrate it, or even decorate (despite the hundreds of Christmas trees at his disposal). The Griffin women are determined to make Eden Tree Lodge and its grumpy owner merry for the holidays by hook or by crook; as Christmas grows closer, so do Abby and Marcus, as the decades-long estrangement between them slowly crumbles away, forcing them both to unlock doors into their past they would rather leave unopened.
