Storyline

Lindsey Scott and Wes Bailey are reluctant partners in a New Orleans dueling pianos/singing act, they performing primarily in a Bourbon Street lounge in the approach to Christmas. That reluctance is due to each being the antithesis of the other: Lindsey is hard working and classically trained and as such is always seeking perfection in her meticulous plans, while Wes is more relaxed and carefree. He has a greater ability to improvise being a jazz aficionado, and that general relaxed nature makes him outwardly more affable and approachable, which bothers Lindsey in he generally getting more attention than her. That's why Wes naturally has more connections in the business, like a friend of his currently being on tour with one of Lindsey's favorite singers, country star Cassie.

It doesn't have to be Casablanca to get a 10!
9 November 2019 | by susan5096See all my reviews

I rate movies based on what I expect from them. For me, this was a 9 but I've given a number of Hallmark and Lifetime Xmas movies , even though it's far behind "White Christmas." There are a limited number of storylines for any inexpensive tv movie romance, that takes place at Xmas - so the rater who complained about the basic plot being overused. It is what it is.

I liked this one, in particular, because of its plethora of great music, especially the jazz Xmas stuff. The leads were appealing, the story sweet but not schmaltzy. It didn't get a 10 from me because I didn't tear up, and Marla Sokoloff, whom I usually enjoy, was a little uneven.

I'd buy the music if it were available.
