Princess Amelia is first in line to the throne of Bundbury; that ascension is to come sooner than later because her widowed mother, Queen Ava, has already revealed her intention to imminently abdicate. Amelia accepts her responsibility, but she has not much liked her lack of freedom over the course of her life: she craves to experience some of it without those strict royal protocols. That experience extends to romance: she would prefer a matrimonial match based on love rather than royal arrangement, and feels that this can only happen in that freedom of experiencing life. In that vein, she wants at least to discover if a connection she made with Chicago-based artist Wes Riverton, who was commissioned to paint her portrait, could be love; the weeks of portrait sittings which only gave each the idea that they are attracted to each other and want to continue to see each other, something that the protective Queen, if she knew, would probably not allow.

Under the guise of celebrating her maternal Uncle Andreas' birthday in his Beverly Hills home base (he's the Bundbury emissary to the U.S), Amelia plans to escape the watchful eyes not only of her mother and her uncle while in Los Angeles, but also Grady Beck, the bodyguard her uncle assigns to her, to travel to Chicago to reunite with Wes. While she knows that her secretary Camille is on her side, Amelia is surprised to learn that her uncle is a romantic at heart and allows her to go, unknown to the Queen, with an initially-reluctant Grady assigned as her bodyguard/escort/driver. The road trip may provide the Princess the freedom she wants, while showing her a different part of life she was expecting with Grady as her guide.

Lindsey Johnson has long worked as a manager in the property-acquisition section of Manhattan-headquartered Krispen Group, a chain of upscale modern resort hotels. It is in her ability to close the deal that company CEO Drake Krispen reassigns her from a near completed Paris acquisition to the starting negotiations in a potentially more problematic one in the small coastal town of Kilabbey, Ireland. The problem with the property is that a castle sits on it which Krispen would tear down to replace with a modern building, whereas the Town Council, which owns the castle, has been known to be reluctant to sell to anyone who would not maintain it.

Lindsey, who has some Irish blood, is making her initial visit to meet with Council coinciding with the town's historic annual Matchmaking Festival. In meeting with Council, she discovers their reluctance to sell to someone like Krispen, the lead Council member, Alroy, who advises her to learn more about Kilabbey and its environs before ever approaching them again. Purely as a high profile move to show Council that she is listening to them, Lindsey reluctantly stays for the Matchmaking Festival just because she knows most of the Council members are highly-involved in its operation.

While most Council members welcome Lindsey's involvement despite knowing her ulterior motive so having no intention of finding a match, one, Brennan O'Brien, doesn't. He's arguably the most protective of the castle, taking any opportunity to sabotage her involvement. While some developments complicate matters, two of the more important are: that Lindsey has no idea that Council has never had the money to maintain the property, so would be more than willing to sell; and that Lindsey and Brennan start to fall for each other. Lindsey wants to close the deal and does not want to hurt Brennan.

For five years, Jenna Slade has been climbing the corporate ladder at Columbus, Ohio based Pugsley Hotels, which has properties worldwide catering primarily to the corporate clientele. Just when she and her boyfriend Dave Jordan, an executive in the international division of the company, get engaged, Jenna gets her first overseas assignment: making a pitch to some potential investors in Dublin for Pugsley to take over a historic property in the city. Part of the reason for this assignment is that Jenna spent one year in an internship working at family-owned and operated O'Hanlon's Inn in rural Dalkey outside of Dublin just prior to getting hired at Pugsley, so she knows the Irish culture and how to frame the pitch to the Irish mentality. Part of Jenna's wish to work in Ireland at the time was a family connection with her father Jack Slade, who has since passed; they had fixed up some family property there.

While in Ireland for this trip, Jenna plans to stop by Dalkey to catch up with her friend Kath, who worked as the baker at O'Hanlon's, and Patrick, the O'Hanlon patriarch and her former boss. She's surprised to see Kath's husband Liam and especially Patrick's son Charlie, who have been on the road performing in their Celtic-music bar band. Charlie was Jenna's boyfriend while she was in Dalkey; Charlie was ready to make a long-term commitment to her five yeas ago, but he didn't want to stand in the way of her professional opportunity in working for Pugsley.

As Jenna spends time with all her old friends in Dalkey while they prepare for the annual Heritage Festival, usually O'Hanlon's busiest time of year, what happens between Jenna and Charlie this time around is not only affected by the engagement ring on her finger from another man, but by Jenna learning of the difficulties O'Hanlon's is currently facing: Patrick wants to retire and Molly, one of the inn's guests, wants to reconnect with someone important from her past.

Cordon-Bleu-trained Becky Bayer works as an editor and agent at Keyner and Smith, a high end cookbook publisher in Seattle, their products more aspirational cookbooks destined for coffee tables than well dog eared books one would pull off the shelf to prepare a home cooked meal. She is renowned for being the best not only for her knowledge of cooking and cuisines, but her attention to details, especially authenticity.

Much to her chagrin, as her much desired promotion to partner rests on its success, her boss Marty assigns her to work on the next cookbook of television chef Will Fryer, someone generally outside of the company's stable of authors, he more a celebrity hack than real chef. Not trained, Will, a widowed father to adolescent David, got into the business of cooking solely to get quick and easy meals on the table that David would eat by taking shortcuts of canned and prepared ingredients. While Will's fans love him and his successful cookbooks, those in the culinary business, including Becky's latest boyfriend, food critic Robert Flannigan, think the food is neither good nor healthy.

While Becky and Will have the same goal of elevating this next cookbook, they butt heads in having different ideas of what that actually means within their well-defined brands. Also making it difficult is that Will has decided to make this book on southwest cooking, having spent some time in New Mexico as a child. Becky, whose family is also from there, would also focus on that cuisine, if she ever opened her dream restaurant. As Becky and Will try to bridge the gap between them, they may discover something missing in their lives in losing track of personal goals.

Claire Hart is a Manhattan corporate lawyer specializing in property issues. Her busy schedule precludes her from going home to Waitsford, Vermont often, which she misses, especially during the annual Fall Fest that her father, Hank Hart, has organized and held on the family farm for years. Not going back for this year's Fall Fest changes when she learns from Hank that his long-time neighbor Margie Wright, the town florist, is, from recently discovered documents, disputing their property line, the area where Hank holds the Fall Fest and grows his coveted pumpkins she claims belongs to her. Claire, out of circumstance, not only goes home but also represents her father despite her busy schedule. Hank and Margie, while not friends per se, have never had a "bad neighbor" relationship either, except when Margie and her now deceased husband Joe had once wanted to purchase some of the Hart's property, which he refused. The legal action takes on new meaning for Claire when she discovers that Margie's lawyer is her nephew Patrick Harris, Claire's high school classmate; the two always had a competitive relationship growing up. Largely for lifestyle reasons, Patrick only recently moved back to town after a Silicon Valley corporate life. Patrick is solely looking out for Margie's interest. She is facing financial issues with her floral business that could largely be solved by this extra land, as she could supply many of her own flowers. Stemming from the legal action, Claire and Patrick can't help but be competitive in almost all other aspects of their many encounters while she is in town. However, despite their rivalry, they both start to fall for the other. The possibility of a romance between the two is not only threatened by Claire living in Manhattan and the legal action, where the probability is high that there will be one winner and one loser, but by a misunderstanding concerning Claire's most recent boyfriend Ben, a New York City Planning Commission engineer, who comes to Waitsford to help Claire with this matter.

Taylor, the head of MI7, wants to insert agents working on the file undercover into the palace without the royal family being aware of the potential threat against them, the only two available positions being Protection Officer, assigned to Agent Wallace, and Royal Nanny, assigned to Agent Claire Champion.

Claire does not believe she is the best person for this specific undercover assignment in knowing nothing about children and raising such in a nurturing environment, having been raised in an orphanage herself and having no children of her own or in her life, something to which MI7's case specific advisor Juliet Lansbury concurs, she who has trained and provided the nannies for the royal family for a generation. With no other agent as an alternative, Mrs. Lansbury has twenty-four hours to train Claire, who will go by the name Claire Carter, to be the proper nanny, the end goal, both as a nanny and as an MI7 agent, to protect Princess Elle and Prince Robert at all cost.

Claire will discover that the biggest threats against her as a person are her charges, who have taken it upon themselves to prank their previous nannies to the point of they wanting to quit. The Princess and Prince have as their biggest ally their uncle, Princess Rose's younger brother, fourth in line Prince Colin, who does not live at the palace but visits frequently, he the head of the royal family's Christmas charity of providing toys to children at orphanages.

Gabby, a guardian angel, often gets too involved in her work in that she is not supposed intervene in people's lives directly, which she does, but rather just guide, she warned time and again by her boss, Michael, that those direct interventions inhibit the free will for them to decide their own fates. Deep down, Gabby gets involved in truly wanting to know the human feeling of extreme happiness she often sees in the people she guides, especially wanting to know the human feeling of love.

Michael gives her a slightly broader and very special next assignment this Christmas season: to help bring the Christmas spirit back to the town of Angels Falls, which may exhibit the outward accouterments of Christmas but not have the inherent spirit of the holiday. Michael has a leg up on getting Gabby the position of volunteer coordinator at St. Andrew's United Church in town. On the job, Gabby learns that the town used to be filled with Christmas spirit until the town's paper mill closed, leading to a downturn in the local economy and people focusing on their own needs to survive, meaning that people have also stopped volunteering.

Ultimately Gabby decides to do for the entire town what she was hired to do for the church, which is to bring back the old Christmas traditions that no longer occur, with the largest piece of the puzzle to reopen what is now the closed community center, which closed solely due to structural issues with the building and no money to fix them. In getting that and other Christmas jobs done, Gabby has to tap into the many personal stories of Angel Falls in discovering how each person lost his or her Christmas spirit.

The one person who still does seem to be filled with that spirit is Jack Avery, the volunteer fire department chief, and the owner/operator of the local hardware store. Gabby, however, discovers something about Jack's past which may taint the way she deals with him on this project. Through it all, she still has to discover why this assignment is so special as Michael coined it, which may affect her post assignment life in not wanting to leave Angel Falls and understanding that the feeling she has been having is love for Jack in particular.
