After the drama of discovering that she’s a member of the Storks, an ancient order of women endowed with mystical abilities, Katla Leblanc is finally settling in to life in chilly Minnesota. The ex–California girl even hopes for a white Christmas. So when the snow starts to fall on a romantic sleigh ride with her boyfriend, Jack, it seems like the perfect present. However, before she knows it, Katla’s wintry wish spirals out of control, turning into the snowstorm of the century.
The unusual weather draws unexpected attention. Environmental scientist Brigid Fonnkona is runway gorgeous, utterly charming, and far too interested in Jack for Katla’s comfort—especially after Jack is singled out to help with Brigid’s research. Between Stork duties, rehearsals for the school production of The Snow Queen, and checking off items on her bedridden, pregnant mother’s to-do lists, Katla has zero time to investigate, even as she notices Jack’s long hours in the lab and the growing tension between the two of them. Then Brigid selects Jack to accompany her on a research expedition to Greenland, and Jack’s cold good-bye leaves Katla wondering where they stand, but when Jack goes missing above the Arctic Circle, Katla knows she’s the only one who can find him.
