Five winemaking siblings
Four gifts from heaven
Three holiday weddings
Two mysteries
And a partridge in a pear tree.
It’s not a Butler Ranch Christmas with a little chaos!

With his baby girl on the way and his brother getting married, all Brodie Butler wants is to make Peyton Wolf his wife and be a father to her two sons. He’s been keeping quite a big secret from her, though, and if he doesn’t reveal it in just the right way, he might ruin the holidays for them all.

Wedding bells are in the air, and Maddox Butler has wedding fever. Now that he and Alex Avila have come out to their families, so to speak, he’s raring to start a family of his own. After all, both of his brothers got their happy endings. Why shouldn’t he?

Ever since his oldest brother was killed in action, Naughton Butler has wished he knew what Kade wanted for him—if anything. Without Kade’s guidance, he’s been lost—even with his upcoming wedding to talented winemaker Bradley Saint John. When a strange woman shows up at the winery, though, he starts finding answers to all of his questions.

Being the youngest of five isn’t easy, and even though Ainsley Butler has built her own life, she can’t help but wonder if her oldest brother forgot all about her. The distance she feels from her family deepens as her own secret starts to unravel. Can Ainsley to do what her oldest brother asked of her, and be strong enough to hold her family together at the same time?

Four intertwined stories in one bring the Butlers through the holidays and into their happily-ever-afters.
