Rear ending a reindeer, even a faux one, is a bad start to any morning, especially when that woman in a reindeer costume is your first love, the one you’ve never gotten over.
Erik or “Erik the Wall” Engen, formerly one of the most feared and admired goalies in the International Hockey League, now an executive in his family’s holiday ornament company, has returned to his hometown of Noelle, Wisconsin during its annual Nutcracker Festival. It’s his job to evaluate the prospects of the Engen Nutcracker Factory, the company founded by his beloved grandfather.
After travelling the world creating murals, artist Stella Larson has returned to Noelle as well. Erik and Stella soon realize the old feelings between them linger, but she can’t seem to forget or forgive him for breaking her heart a decade before.
With a little hope and some Christmas magic, can Erik make his way back to the woman he always carried with him in his heart?
