Nice wholesome story
14 December 2016 | by ruthgaaSee all my reviews

Some of the dialogue was a little too slow. Could have been a little more action. But all in all well worth the watch. Right now it's free on Netflix!! So as not to spoil alert anything let's just say if you are a fan of Hallmark movies and Christmas movies I think you will like it. This is a movie to get into your PJs, make yourself a cup of tea or hot chocolate and snuggle under a blanket. I like the "ranch". flare to it. If you like horses you will like this. Beautiful scenery and panoramic views really add to the movie as well. One thing I did miss however was that I wish there were a few more characters in the movie for more character development and interaction. It will be added to the story and perhaps even created a bit of suspense to the development of the plot. Although it was not as predictable as one might think. There were a few twists and turns along the way. Add this movie to your wish list on Netflix. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
