together, facing life's challenges--and knowing what it means to really
Cut off from the outside world by a blanket of snow,
the holidays are usually a time for peace and quiet in tiny Eureka,
Colorado. But this year the mountain town is in trouble. Thanks to a
corrupt investor, the treasury is bankrupt, leaving residents to
struggle through an especially harsh winter. Then there are those with
more personal problems, like Maggie Stevens, pregnant and torn between
single motherhood or drawing the father-to-be into a life he's not cut
out for. And Olivia Theriot, the mayor's prodigal daughter, is harboring
a secret so painful she may never be able to settle down. But mother

blizzard blows through just days before Christmas, some are left
stranded--and others missing. Now there's only one thing on Eureka's
wish list: to live up to its name, and its reputation for coming
together, and find a way to bring everyone back home--where they belong.
