It's Christmas-time in the little Yorkshire village of Welford, and the first snowflakes are just starting to fall. As far as Susan Collins is concerned, this Christmas is all about quality time with her family, especially her son Jack. After a string of terrible dates, she's given up on love. And with the class of schoolchildren she teaches making regular trips to local animal rescue centre Hope Meadows, Susan's certainly got plenty to keep her busy. That is, until she meets handsome children's author Douglas Macleod. He might be the opposite of Susan's usual type with his dishevelled appearance and bright red hair, but an undeniable spark soon lights up between them. But then Michael Chalk, Susan's ex and Jack's father, turns up on the scene wanting Jack (and Susan back) - and Susan finds herself torn between the two men.

Having recently returned from Africa, where she's been treating a life-threatening virus, she has been told that she must stay in quarantine for a week, and so, too should her family. For the next seven days, no one can leave the house, and no one can enter. It doesn't sound too hard. But a week with your nearest and dearest can feel like an eternity, especially when they're all harbouring secrets.
