Storyline

Miranda is flying back to Vermont from her home in Seattle to reconnect with her family over the holidays -- and to see Ian, a local handyman she fell in love with on her last trip to the Green Mountain State. But when changing planes in Boston, Miranda runs into old boyfriend Josh who chases her to Vermont, where Miranda learns of an old family secret that could destroy her family. Can Miranda keep her family -- and her love for Ian -- together and intact, or will she forever lose her chance at a beautiful winter wedding? Written by Robert Hallam

Goofs

Midway thru the movie you see Margaret standing from across the field, staring at the cottage (from a distance). To her immediate right there appears a neighbors house, roughly 4+ trees (width), right of the cottage. In other appearances (twice) after this scene, you will see from the same view (from across the field), the neighbors house no longer appears. You can count up to 8 trees (width).. looking right of the cottage - and all you see are only trees. The neighbors house has been blocked-out (of the movie) in the other subsequent scenes, judging from the same view (distance). See more »
