Home or school? Old or new? Family or friends?
With Christmas—and finals—coming up fast, Mac can’t make up her mind where to spend her vacation. In Santa Barbara with Lissa and Shani? In London with her mother? Or in Scotland with her dad in the family castle, trying to reconnect with old friends who just might not fit her anymore?
For Mac, the best way to allay her doubts is to organize something—like a family Christmas and even a traditional Hogmanay dance for New Year’s Eve. So she invites everyone—Lissa, Gillian, Carly, and Shani—to join her! And if she can get her mother involved, maybe her parents will see what a mistake they’ve made in splitting up, and realize they’re meant for each other.
When they arrive they find the castle falling apart and the earl in denial about the family finances. Mac’s old friends hate her new ones. And a video has gone viral, forcing Shani to dodge men in black sent by the royal family of Amir. Can the girls find reasons to celebrate the season … and will a certain young man with an old crush on Lissa realize in time that Mac is really The One?
There are tidings of great joy in the hills of Scotland … if only Mac can believe it’s all part of God’s plan for her …
