As one of the organizers of the gala local winter fundraiser - The Bachelor Bakeoff - Lacey asks Zac Malone to enter the contest, promising to tutor him in baking techniques. Zac reluctantly accepts, but only if Lacey – the world’s worst baker - agrees to take baking lessons with him. As the two practice recipes, interact with the town, and try to remain “just friends”, their mutual attraction grows. Both find a new beginning: Lacey realizes that she will find the love she yearns for with Zac, but only if she moves outside her safety zone to accept change with an unguarded heart. Zac, after a lifetime of hiding from love, opens his heart to fall in love with Lacey.
