In the frigid Canadian north, Madoc and Janet try to keep warm and stay alive Though he may not look the part, Madoc Rhys is a Mountie & mdash;and his keen sense of detection tells him it & rsquo;s time to ask Janet Wadman to marry him. They have just gotten engaged when Christmas rolls around, and Janet & rsquo;s boss invites them to his family estate for a last holiday fling before Janet leaves her job. After a long helicopter ride, they are at Graylings, ancestral home of the Condryckes, a family so strange that Canada & rsquo;s shortest Mountie fits right in. There is a psychic old woman, an erudite butler, and a family patriarch who is the spitting image of an English country squire.
