Storyline

It's the Christmas season, and it's busier than usual for Celeste Everette. In addition to starting up her own event planning company with her best friend Molly, it arguably the busiest season in the business, she is also now the guardian for her niece, Finley, since the accidental death of her parents, Celeste's sister Julie and her husband Mark just over a year ago. This will be their second Christmas together as a family, Celeste who wants to maintain as many as Julie's traditions as possible as a semblance of normalcy for Finley. With all these issues, Celeste has already postponed her wedding to attorney Brandon, who is facing his own time commitment issues being assigned first chair in a big case which could result in him making partner.

Goofs

They show the scene of Taylor and Finley reading books on the couch in the living room, showing a decorated Christmas tree to the right and behind Finley. Then Celeste leaves with her date for dinner, but tells him that she needs to stop first - at a Christmas tree lot to get a tree! Editing screwed up the order of those scenes. See more »

Thanks to the leads, worth watching.
14 December 2019 | by rebekahroxSee all my reviews

Ali Liebert is back in form in this latest holiday offering. There was something about her in the last one, A Gift to Cherish, that seemed a little off. It's been a week or more since I have seen this, so I'll just make this brief. This was the unexpectedly male nanny plot. He is a well-known children's author in disguise and she is an event planner who needs to wrangle this author to the career make or break event she is planning. Little does she know, this reclusive author is right under her nose. I loved that the male lead was just a normal-looking guy, and his rival, her boyfriend, was fictionally male model handsome. She is a controller and scheduler to the point that I really disliked her at times, and he has a more loosey-goosey approach to child raising. So it's kind of two plots for the price of one. It wasn't perfect. The constant repetition of "You are safe, You are loved" to her little niece (orphaned) was unbelievably cheesy. But all in all a complex story with a lot going on, some tension, and good chemistry make this worth watching.
