Summary
Felicia returns to her family's home on Nantucket to marry her adventurous, rugged boyfriend, Archie. Wondering if her handsome neighbor Steven Hardy might be a more suitable son-in-law, Jilly's mother embarks on a secret matchmaking campaign for Felicia and the dashing stockbroker. As the big day approaches and Jilly's older daughter, Lauren, appears with rambunctious kids in tow, tensions in the household are high. Enter a charming but mischievous cat named Jock
Summary
"As the calendar counts down to Christmas, Felicia heads to Nantucket to marry the love of her life, Archie. The twinkling lights that beckon from every window, the snow dusting the beautiful streets, the gorgeous red and white satin dress -- every detail is picture-perfect for a dream wedding. The only problem is, this is not Felicia's dream. Happier hiking in shorts than tending to hearth and home like her more traditional sister Lauren, Felicia has only agreed to a lavish winter wedding to make her mother Jilly happy. And while Jilly is thrilled her daughter's found love, she still has reservations about the brawny, bumbling Archie -- especially when Jilly learns that he and Felicia plan to move far away to California after the wedding. To help take her mind off the impending move, Jilly's husband George brings home a charming but mischievous cat named Jock. But when Lauren shows up with high-spirited kids and plenty of judgments in tow, not even Jock's furry antics can keep the already-high family tensions from skyrocketing. Just when it seems like this family is fated to wake up on Christmas morning to stockings full of coal, a holiday surprise brings them together for a very merry celebration"--
