Beyond Pete's death, it is not a good time for Karen as she already owes her editor new material, she not telling her editor that she has a major case of writer's block. Juliet, who never met her grandfather or knew about her mother's Lousiana past, has no emotional attachment to this trip, she who would have much rather spent Christmas in New York City with her friends in the comfort of big city life.

Would Watch Zeb Halsell Breath for 2 hours
26 February 2018 | by dianav-67939See all my reviews

Good, cute movie. Casting.. eh... but Zeb Halsell? Call me a cougar, but yum. could watch him breath. :) Nadine is very pretty. Kind of a Stockard Channing look to her. She's a bit old for the role, I think. For a supposed 20-year-old, she is WAY to obedient to her mom. Dialogue in script seems like it should be more of a rebellious 15-, 16-year old person. Mother and daughter look like sisters. Decent movie if you are just looking for some fantasy romance kind of thing to take your mind off the "real" world. :)
