Considering that her name is Merry Noel Blake and she was born on Christmas Day, it's not surprising that Frost, Minnesota's newest resident is crazy about the holiday. She has singlehandedly convinced the entire town to help her turn Frost into a Christmas destination; there are decorations on every corner, a life-size nativity, the lutefisk dinner at church, and Merry's own holiday boutique. So imagine her excitement when a man named Jack Frost walks into her shop one day! Jack might be rich and handsome, but the weather seems to chill by a few more degrees when he arrives in town. For Jack has come back to reclaim his family's land - despite the fact that it is home to many of Frost's residents. Worse, he has 4 deep, personal reasons for spurning holiday festivities and is determined to cut the town's Christmas spectacle down to size. But Merry believes that below Jack's frosty exterior is a warm heart - and that she is the one to thaw it.
