Sick, cold, and afraid, Sara gets help from Trent, the handsome sheriff who shows her the beauty of a northern Christmas. The story gets really interesting when the FBI and DEA enter the picture as they are hunting down Sara’s ex-husband, who is involved in the Colombian drug trade. Amidst all of this, we also meet the Mercers, who are suffering from their own tragic circumstances, as well as Sara’s sister Grace and Trent’s aunt Jane.
