Lacy-Jane Macalister returns to her hometown, eager to prove she's not the culinary failure her ex claimed her to be. After a career in the military, Petr Sergeyev settles down in Rios Azules to help his brother with his nephew and new business. Grandpa Alexey's is the only place in town that needs chefs.
He's for hearty meals. She promotes healthy food. He likes order. She prefers creativity. He left his girlfriend. She was betrayed by her fiancé. Their arguments are more heated than the stove in the restaurant's kitchen. But when Lacy-Jane's sister and Petr's brother decide to have their wedding soon after Christmas, Petr and Lacy-Jane put their differences aside to give their siblings a great reception. A ruined wedding and failed business are not on the menu. But as Petr and Lacy-Jane learn more about each other, romance just might be.
Will Petr and Lacy-Jane surrender their wills to God and receive Christmas gifts of love, faith, and hope?
