When real estate developer Madison Lane (Finnigan) visits their town to rule it out as the location for her company’s newest resort, Sheriff Gage McBride (Mabius) and the residents of picturesque Christmas, Colorado must change her mind to ensure the town’s future. The plan works, and in less than a week Madison finds herself completely entranced with the town and its friendly people, especially the handsome widower sheriff with whom romance begins to blossom. But when she realizes that building the resort could destroy the small town’s charm, Madison reverses course and soon alienates the very people who made her feel so welcome and wanted.
