As Christmas approaches, Elizabeth Bennett, a New York event planner, is sent to a quaint, small town to organize their holiday festival. When she arrives, she finds William Darcy, a high-profile billionaire lacking in holiday spirit, in the process of selling the charming estate she hoped to use as a venue. Determined to make her event a success, Elizabeth persuades the reluctant Darcy to let her hold the festival on the historical estate once known for its holiday cheer. When they wind up working together to arrange the festivities, the unlikely pair begins falling for each other. But when complications arise and the festival is unexpectedly shut down, the couple parts ways and Darcy moves forward with his plans to sell the estate. On the night before Christmas, a wistful Elizabeth hopes for a Christmas miracle to revive the festival, save the estate and rekindle her holiday romance.Written by
I am not a fan of Jessica Lowndes. In fact. of the half dozen or more Halmark regular leading ladies, she is my least favorite. But she can sure sing. Holy Night a cappella is not easy but she nailed it. And she was probably well cast for this part.
The movie was charming. The plot was enough to keep it interesting. I can't say I thought the ending was on par with the rest of the movie, but it still came through in the manor the viewer would expect.
Early in the move, the dialogue was excellent as Lowndes and Rady sparred and then softened toward one another. My favorite part of movies like this is where the leads develop their relationship and this movie did it well. They had chemistry even if Rady played a stiff businessman and Lowndes has never been the best actress in the Hallmark regulars.
I liked the way the rival was just as good a guy as the lead, all the way through the movie.
