Lynley Cannon is dreading the Holidays. The sixty-something cat shelter volunteer would rather hang out with cats than brave her daughter's soulless Christmas gala, so when a witch's beloved kitty is catnapped, Lynley grabs the excuse to skip out on her social obligations.
Though Lynley knows little about the white witchcraft, Wicca, she does know cats and can't decline a plea for help when one goes missing. Then the witch disappears as well. Lynley, compelled by her cat-like curiosity, sets out to search for the pair, but the task is daunting.
A freak snow storm and a crazed captor take things in a dangerous direction. As Lynley endures the cold dark of confinement, the Christmas spirit brings a strength she never knew she possessed.
