Storyline

Aspiring astronomy professor and Christmas enthusiast Holly is crushed when her longtime boyfriend Adam schedules a business trip and leaves her alone over the holidays. When she decides to surprise both Adam and her parents with a Christmas visit, however, fate, or perhaps the Christmas spirit, intervenes. Holly's bumpy holiday travel makes a turn onto the road to romance when she and her bus companion, Luke, forge an instant connection over their love of constellations and Christmas. In the spirit of the season, Holly invites Luke and his brother Bull to join her family and Adam for Christmas, which instantly creates a competition between Luke and Adam for Holly's attention. As sparks fly like shooting stars between Holly and Luke, will Holly decide to play it safe and stay with Adam or to thank her lucky stars for the Christmas gift of romance with Luke?

Cute feel Good Christmas movie
16 August 2019 | by juneebuggySee all my reviews

Standard Hallmark Christmas movie fare, feel good, sweet romance, family stuff, you don't have to think too hard, nobody gets murdered. Here a woman with a successful boyfriend - who leaves her alone for the holidays -finds the sparks a-flying with the handsome cowboy she's been seated next to on the bus trip home to her parents. Their unexpected encounter makes her contemplate weather she longs for safety or adventure.

This was cute, not so much a Christmas movie more a romance centered around Christmas as an afterthought or reason for them to meet. Damon Runyan as Luke Shelton was sure pretty and made this worth a watch. I also enjoyed Canadian country singer George Canyon as his brother Bull.
