Something is just off
7 November 2019 | by debejereSee all my reviews

Normally these two are great and believable. There is something amiss with Brooke, she looks so drawn in her face. I don't know what it is but this show had so many wonderful qualities, love love loved the Santa tag with "Santa helper sayings". The idea was super great. Something just didn't connect. I love watching hallmark even if it is a one kiss. "same-o~ same o"
