Goofs

Soon after Miranda (Erin Krakow) gets to the Inn she is waving her phone in the air. Ian (Niall Matter) sees her and asks her if she needs some help and she replies that her "GPS isn't working". Ian says that "cell service is a bit spotty up here". True GPS is independent of cell phone service and will work as long as the phone has a clear view of the sky, which it did. The most likely problem was that her phone wasn't able to download a map of the area, which has nothing to do with GPS. See more »

A little too sappy even for a Hallmark movie
10 December 2016 | by RNMortonSee all my reviews

Having said that I will note several good things about the movie. Krakow is really nice as the restrained lead, she has a sort of comfortable Sigourney Weaver look to her. Her mom dies and she heads to a Vermont town at Christmas time trying to learn more about an old picture she finds in her mom's stuff. Krakow appears good to absolute go for future Hallmark Christmas pictures. Matter was okay as the romantic interest, the obviousness of the potential hookup I can't blame on him any more than the writers. The rest of the crew was fine, Malick is good as the local wondering why Krakow's in town. I think my problem is all the developments seemed sort of destined from the beginning and it is always better if there is at least a little question as to where things are going. The wrap Is a little talky and complicated but nice.
