Storyline

Widow Emily (Faith Ford) calls her BFF Faith (Gabrielle Miller) for sympathy when Emily's daughter Heather won't return to Oregon from college in Boston for Xmas. Emily will be alone in Oregon for Xmas because divorcee Faith now lives in a distant city. Emily trades houses for Xmas with Charles, a Boston professor. Charles is desperate to break his writer's block on his latest novel overdue at the publisher. Emily's attempt to surprise Heather for Xmas goes awry because Heather has secretly flown to Phoenix with her boyfriend. Adding insult to injury, Emily sets off Charles' silent burglar alarm. Summoned by the security company, Charles' brother Ray unlocks Charles' door and causes the police to walk in on Emily. Meanwhile, Faith tries to surprise Emily in Oregon for Xmas and she walks in on Charles. Romance buds in Boston while things are icy in Oregon. Written by C. Comly

A Pretty Good Movie
27 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was pretty good. I love Hallmark Christmas movies, and I love Debbie Macomber's books. It is a good holiday movie, and I loved it. However I believe that the portrayal of Faith and Charles was much better than that of Ray and Emily's. It was a very good family movie with a cute and entertaining plot. My sister and mother and I watched it. We all enjoyed it, but we all agreed about the problem with Ray and Emily. Sometimes Hallmark movies seem the same, but this one is different and has a nice plot. This makes you want to settle down with a batch of cookies under a blanket and a mug of hot cocoa while you watch it.
