Storyline

The upcoming film kicks off when Cate (Sweetin), CEO of the Merry and Bright Candy Cane Company, meets Gabe (Walker) during the busy Christmas season. She assumes Gabe is the suitor her well-meaning mother is trying to set her up with when in reality, he works for Empire Corporate Recovery, which has been hired to take a closer look at Merry and Bright's operation and find ways to make the company more profitable. As Cate and Gabe begin to work together, they find ways to elevate the business and find that they have more in common than savvy business sense. Written by Hallmark

I like more chemistry between leading characters. This one just didn't have the spark.
