In Rocky Point, New Hampshire, Prescott's Antiques has been transformed into a winter wonderland for Josie Prescott's annual holiday party. Josie is especially excited this year because Ian Bennington, a recently discovered distant relative, will be joining the fun. The party is a success, and Ian is a hit. But then Ian doesn't keep his dinner date with Josie's friend, Lavinia, or his lunch date with Josie. Also missing are two priceless seventeenth-century miniature portraits Ian had given to his daughter. Determined to find Ian, Josie uses her antiques knowledge to track the miniatures and, in doing so, she learns the true meaning of Christmas-- and of family.
