Christmas, Kentucky, is a summer tourist destination for its holiday-themed shops, ornament-sprouting potted palms, giant snow globe display, and its cheerful residents - including the mayor's daughter, fifteen-year-old Darby Peacher.
But as Darby stumbles her way into a job at the town's rundown amusement park, Holly Jolly Land, her summer quickly goes from merry to miserable: a boy of Christmas present is absent, a boy of Christmas past is her supervisor, and the town seems to be losing its cheer as it strives to become more commercial.
As she tries to sort out her love life, Darby grows positively Scroogey until she gets wrapped up in reinventing Holly Jolly Land - and the town - as the wonderland it once was. Before long she finds romance and rediscovers the magic of Christmas in this funny feel good story celebrating a small town where the holiday season runs year-round.
