All she wants for Christmas is a snowplow. Jaycee Roberts is expecting just another twelve-hour overnight shift at the small hospice facility where she works, especially as there are only a few patients left—the ones who couldn't twist a doctor’s arm to go home for the holiday. Of course, a normal shift means getting home in time for Christmas Eve with her kids, twelve-year-old (going on twenty) Clarissa and eight-year-old video gamer Jake. This year is their first Christmas as a trio since the implosion of her marriage to always-in-the-office real estate developer Derek last year. But Derek has his own holiday agenda this year: convincing Jaycee to give him a second chance. Then the white Christmas becomes an icy snowstorm, and Jaycee—along with the entire staff—is stuck until they clear the roads. She's determined to make the best of things, something she finds to be much easier with Chris Kadavy, her new co-worker who has a more-than-professional interest in her. Caught in a love triangle involving her lingering feelings for Derek and her blossoming desire for Chris, Jaycee tries to focus on caring for her patients— including a former Hollywood Scream Queen, a crotchety retired CEO, and a far-too-young father-to-be who might not see his firstborn—between listening to her kids fighting through the phone and flirting with Chris. As soon as the storm knocks out power and blocks the only entrance to the facility, leaving Jaycee and the staff without a doctor, the pregnant wife of the rapidly deteriorating young father goes into labor. This novella blends a touch of humor with the drama of the holiday season.
