Did You Know?


The third of four original Christmas-themed films that premiered on The Hallmark Channel in 2008. See more »


At the beginning of the movie when Jennifer's neighbor asks about when her Christmas lights are going onto the house, Jennifer says she hadn't gotten in contact with her light guys yet. As she closes her door an starts her car to leave, you hear the typical starter sound from the engine as she begins to leave. Well, the Toyota Prius does NOT have a "starter" like regular cars. You can't hear when the engine starts because the motor-generator turns the engine to start, so it's virtually silent when the engine starts up. See more »


Uncle Ralph: [Looking at a flight information board, he stops an airline employee] Excuse me, miss, I don't see Chicago. Can you help me?
Airline Employee: [as she walks away] No, I can't.
Uncle Ralph: And they pay you?

Loved this! Great family Christmas movie!
19 December 2019 | by jml1988See all my reviews

I really really enjoyed this! The chemistry between the actors was so good and I thought the plot played out nicely. I was not a fan of Brooke Burns in the Gourmet Detective series but I thought she did great in this one.
