Storyline

Emily, a lawyer, returned to her small hometown of Nelson Creek four months ago following the death of her Nonna to take over running Nonna's business which she named after her granddaughter: Emily's Bakery. Beyond not seeing Nonna before she passed, Emily is not sad about this new career path as baking has always been a passion ever since Nonna took her into the kitchen at age five, and discovered in making the move back to Nelson Creek that law never really was. This new life in Nelson Creek hits a snag when she learns that Nonna was deep in debt - the massive loan which Emily didn't know was for her law education - and may have to sell some of Nonna's assets, the house where Emily now lives and/or the bakery. The house may be the more prudent item to liquidate with Forge Mart, the chain supermarket located across the street from the bakery, having just opened its own in-house bakery, it the only other made-from-scratch bakery in town as competition to Emily which lessens the market...

Goofs

On December 1 (the day the calendar arrives), Emily, the baker, arrives at work just before the bakery is about to open. The bakery is stocked full, which could not have happened in a real bakery (she would have had to arrive in the middle of the night to start baking). See more »

Not the worst Christmas movie out there
8 December 2018 | by dtdenver-987-925546See all my reviews

The owner and baker of a bakery but we never see her in the kitchen? The bakery opens sometime late in the morning? Treats and goodies just magically appear on all the shelves? I would also like to know why - in these Christmas movies, the female is always bratty and high strung; the male is calm and condescending. This movie exemplifies the millennials in our company, I guess. Elves will do the real work and it's okay to be bratty if you look precious.
