Mayor Holly Baxter has her hands full: the island is hosting a group of rowdy, swashbuckling weekend pirates; her ex-boyfriend's new love interest has decided to stick around; mysterious holes keep popping up all over the island; and a new family is ready to make Christmas Key home--a family that includes rambunctious six-year-old twin boys.
After leaving the island on Christmas Eve, River O'Leary has started texting and calling Holly again, stirring up feelings in her that she's been too busy to ponder. But will having River back in her life finally free Holly from the ties that bind her to her ex? Can Holly solve the mystery of the holes before the other islanders start lobbing accusations at their guests? And will having little ones on Christmas Key be a fun distraction, or more mischief than the locals are prepared to handle?
