In this fifth novel of the series Rachel O'Neill faces another difficult decision: will she or will she not marry Moscow-ite Maxim Ballenchine at Christmas?

During the first week in Montana on her way to Kallispell to buy supplies, she rescues Allegra McAdams from a roll-over auto accident. Allegra is still recovering from the death of their mother, a victim in an unsolved murder case, and she and her brothers own one of the largest cattle ranches in Montana. But the startling coincidences are that Allegra is a also a writer and owns a home in Malibu, California, on the same street as Rachel's son.
