Reggie hasn’t been home in a year since she became engaged and then dumped in the span of a weekend. But her parents are renewing their vows and her sister is pregnant. Her mom called and asked her to spend the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas in Wishing Tree.
Since Reggie owns her own business and can work from anywhere, she agrees. It’s nice to see her family again. She’s not sure why she stayed away so long. There’s plenty to be done helping her mother with her wedding tasks, and Reggie has also taken over a classroom project for her sister.
Dena’s newly pregnant and barely keeping anything down. While she wants a child, she’s saddened to think she couldn’t find a partner. But she didn’t let that stop her. Between running the B&B and teaching, she’s barely hanging on. She’s so happy Reggie came home to help. Dena only feels a little guilty that she also asked her sister’s ex-boyfriend to help with the classroom project...
Maybe Toby and Reggie will get to reminiscing about the way things used to be. If Dena doesn’t have a happily ever after, that doesn’t mean her sister can’t.

Micah, unable to write since he lost his wife, finds inspiration in Dena’s determination to be a mom. One snowflake-speckled kiss and he’s a goner.
