Christmas in Beaufort picks up right where The Stolen Bride (Book 5) leaves off. Adam and his friends return to Carteret County after their unexpected adventure to New England. When they return, Adam finds out a lot has happened while he was away. His best friend, Martin, is now engaged to be married, but there will be no wedding unless Adam can help him clear his name of a serious allegation. To top it all off, Christmas is just around the corner, and with a dinner party planned at the Topsail Tavern, Adam has a lot to accomplish if there is to be a happy holiday season in Beaufort.
