Storyline

Country music star Laney Blu hasn't been back to her Tennessee hometown in years. It wasn't the kindest place to grow up, so when her career skyrocketed at seventeen she was happy to leave it behind. Though she's set to headline a Christmas concert in NYC, Laney decides to make a quick pit-stop to see her family. When a freak snowstorm hits, she finds herself stranded in the town, and is roped into taking part in a local Christmas concert. As Laney spends more time in her hometown, it becomes less and less like she remembered it. She begins to fall in the love with the people, place and just maybe, a handsome snowplow driver named Robbie. When the storm lets up, will Laney head off to NYC or will home be where her heart is?

Pretty bad
3 November 2019 | by rebekahroxSee all my reviews

I guess I expected a bit more effort to support Megan Hilty, a fairly high profile singer-actress. I was disappointed in the writing as Greg Rossen has penned some of my favorite Hallmarks. And Lifetime movies are usually a bit of a cut above. Neither the plot nor the motivations of the MCs or the townspeople made sense. Instead of welcoming their home town star, they turned a cold shoulder to her when she was trying to be involved in helping the community. If your town is in trouble, here is a hint. Be nice to the famous and rich superstar who is coming home for a visit. If they were trying to be loyal to their beloved mayor and ex-boyfriend of our star, that's wack too. He was the one who stood her up, not the other way around. Did not understand the lack of communication. They should have done a better job with Laney's character arc, which was non-existent. She was nice (if understandably busy) from beginning to end. All in all a cookie cutter assembly line effort complete with a "cute" popcorn fight instead of the usual cliche snow-ball fight. I expect to roll my eyes a bit during a Hallmark-type movie, but cringing is a no-no.
