Can she find love this Christmas?

Christmas in Copenhagen is an utterly magical time of year - there are charming Christmas markets, carol singing on the canals, ice skating in the parks and cosy cafes to shelter from the early snow but Darcy Cotterell is not feeling remotely festive. Newly single, she's not even going home for Christmas but will instead spend the holiday finishing her PhD. Her best friend, Freja, has other ideas though and convinces Darcy to sign up to an upmarket dating site where she can meet the city's most eligible bachelors. Freja is determined that Darcy won't be lonely this Christmas and gets her to agree to match with three potential dates.

Then Darcy is given the job of solving a new, intriguing art mystery: an unknown portrait by Denmark’s greatest painter has been found beneath another masterpiece and she must discover the identity of the woman in the painting. During her research, she encounters sexy, arrogant lawyer Max Lorensen - who happens to be bachelor number one! The attraction is instant but there are two problems: Max is clearly a player and, while the chemistry between them is hard to ignore, they also need to work together whatever happens . . .
