Small town girl
23 December 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Ellen Langford (Eliza Taylor) is a rich party girl who creates salacious newspaper headlines. Her father has had enough. To prove to him she is fit to inherit the family business, she is sent on a bus with $100 to deliver and a special Christmas letter to her dad's former partner in the small town of Snow Falls which has no mobile phone signal. Ellen cannot tell anyone who she really is.

Her suitcase is run over by the local cabbie and innkeeper Jake Collins (Jake Lacy) who once spent some time in New York but he did not like the big city life. Ellen is stranded in the town during a snowstorm. She works in the inn to make some money, learns how to bake with the help of Jake's aunt. Ellen after spending some time in Snow Falls has a different outlook in life and falls for Jake despite being engaged.

Although made by Netflix this is not too far removed from the Hallmark Christmas cookie cutter formula. Ellen and Jake give appealing performances but it all too syrupy. A sugar laced romance with the subtext of you have to go to a small town to find the true meaning of life.
