Do you think Jack Frost exists? ...when frost is appearing at your window, and the lovely creations of ice crackle in the dim of a winter’s eve? Melody Winters finds out in a most unusual, and magical way! Melody is a diva and discovers that All That Glitters for Christmas aren't diamonds and materialistic things, rather the magic that sparkles from the love in your heart!
Melody leaves Los Angeles, California to visit her father, who has recently taken up location, and a new wife, in a blustery snow hidden town of Hartford, Massachusetts. Hidden from the map and from the general population of the world, it is a town only known to locals. One could visit, but only by invitation, with the disclosure that one will never speak of the town to the outside world. Unfortunately, the town has recently received some media attention, as there has been a thief in town, who has stolen the Ice diamonds! Not only is there recent criminal activity, there is a culprit at hand, who wants to take over the town, and turn it into a winter resort for the rich and famous!
Among all these activities, Melody finds herself lost in a town where there is no Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, or lavish mansion parties. Rather it is a simple town, full of charity events, fun, and laughter. Once a “spoiled little bitch”, the town slowly begins to change her and the reason why she is there in the first place, and she finds out that buying things and living in the material world isn’t what it’s all cracked up to be and what life is all about.
Melody falls in love. Not only with a magician by the name of Jack Frost, but also by a man by the name of Devin Tyne, a local drunk, who she happens to find out later is an undercover policeman who was sent by another precinct to nab the thief of the Ice diamonds. Can a woman be in love with two men at the same time? Two men who seem completely different from one another? Not only does this alleged thief need to be caught, but she also finds she is in the middle of this love triangle. Eventually, the thief is revealed, and everyone is shocked as to who it is!
Throughout all of this adventure, Melody sets her heart on marriage with one of the men she has desperately fallen in love with. Will she marry Jack Frost - a mysterious, charming man of magic? Or Devin Tyne - a genuine and warmhearted man of life's experience? She chooses well, and become a Christmas wife.
Set in the season of Christmas, Devin, Melody and Jack are all strong characters whose growing love shows not only commitment to their hearts, but imperfection. Not just a romance, All That Glitters for Christmas explores the depths of the soul, and gives life to adventures in a small town with an even bigger mystery. All That Glitters for Christmas combines romance with adventure, giving it an exceptional seasonal appeal.
