Although she loves her job as an event planner for successful Gail Lane in New York City, the company which Gail tells her directly will someday be hers in being the best of her staff, Rachel Davis, if being true to herself, would admit the job was a fallback in none of her children's books being accepted for publication. With an event canceled at the last minute, Gail gives Rachel an unexpected and unusual break over the Christmas holidays, allowing Rachel and her adolescent daughter Ava to return "home" to spend Christmas with Rachel's parents and sister Maggie in Pigeon Hole, Tennessee, Rachel and Maggie who grew up in the proverbial shadow of Dollywood where Maggie now works in administration.

I loved it!!
25 December 2019 | by LuvhallmarkSee all my reviews

Again you must remember these movies are mostly filmed well before Christmas so that's why they couldn't film all at once. I did pick up on Danica's sister's hair - most scenes her hair was brown and the next scene it was jet black which meant she probably had other projects in between filming this picture. I actually thought the main leads had great chemistry, I really like the male lead (hunk)!! I thought it was a really good movie although it would've been nice for Dolly to perform a song or two but it was great seeing her.... she still looks amazing. Well done to cast and crew!
