Christmas has come again to Sabal Palms; but with the unusually warm temperatures, Elaine is finding it hard to get into the Christmas spirit. Her friends have created a Christmas tradition of taking on a new adventure each year, and this year, Bonnie has decided they should all be in the town's Christmas boat parade. Maybe their new adventure will help Elaine revive her heart for Christmas.
But a mysterious stranger has come to Sabal Palms who may make this Christmas even more interesting. When the ladies head to their friend Ramon's tree lot to purchase their Christmas trees, they are introduced to Chris, a sullen and depressed man who seems to have some problems of his own. As the ladies prepare each other's houses for Christmas, they notice Chris around town acting suspiciously.
Elaine is feeling God calling her to speak to Chris face-to-face instead of using her writing as she had in the past. But will Elaine find the right words to say to soften this stranger's heart? And will Elaine finally be able to celebrate Christmas?
