Christmas at Mistletoe Lodge

What do a Zamboni, a stuffed bunny, and a blizzard have in common?

Ever since Avery Hawthorn left small town Frisco, Colorado for college at UCLA, her parents have visited her in sunny California for the holidays. When a freak accident at her father’s hardware store derails their plans, Avery must find a way to spend Christmas with them.

As a big fan of Christmas, Avery knew this wouldn’t do. She needed to see her family. But, there was one thing standing in the way of her taking time off…

The chance for a big promotion at work.

As luck would have it, Avery’s newest client sends her to the one place she hasn’t seen in twelve years - The Mistletoe Lodge. With her client willing to do anything for the property, they enlist Avery to sweet-talk the owners into selling.
