It's official - for Juliette Connolly Christmas is a bust and she's definitely not in the Christmas spirit. She's been dumped by her boyfriend and replaced by a younger model. Then a clause in her contract means she and a mysterious colleague have to work over Christmas. But there's much more to Andrew Campbell than meets the eye. Especially when it turns out he's the Scottish Laird of the haunted house they're filming in.
And it seems like there's magic in the air in the remote snow-filled setting. The local village contains a cast of Christmas characters and even though the boiler in the drafty house is broken the temperature is definitely rising.
Maybe Andrew and Juliette are about to be sprinkled with a little Christmas fairy dust?
Do you believe in haunted houses and ghosts?
What makes this charming Christmas story unique, are the possibilities of ghosts residing in Andrew's mansion. But are they really spooky restless souls wandering the hallways, or are all the history and drama that has happened in the house making it feel like it?
During the Christmas visit to the Laird's mansion, Andrew is finally facing the loss of his brother, and accepting the future of the mansion, and change that has to happen.
Juliette and Andrew are swept away for the attraction for each other, they create a bit of their own Christmas magic, and bring light, love, and life back to the mansion darkened by sad family history.
An alluring, fun, and clean Christmas story, with a bit of a magic and sense of being hunted...
