Storyline

Joy Holbrook is an intuitive market researcher in DC who has captured the attention of the account's CEO and is about to get a sweet promotion, just in time for the holidays. She receives an urgent phone call from home and she rushes back to Crystal Falls, NC to help her Aunt recover from surgery and is reunited with her former crush, Ben. To keep her Aunt focused on healing, Joy volunteers to take Ruby's place with the town's legendary baking competition, the "Cookie Crawl," much to the amusement of Ben who knows Joy has absolutely no idea of the Herculean task before her. Though Joy initially refuses Ben's attempts to "co-captain," she begins to soften and let him in, all the while remembering that there truly is no place like home. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Quite Pleasant
4 November 2018 | by rebekahroxSee all my reviews

Danielle Panabaker as Joy was very pleasant and a competant actress. She had a real girl next door Vibe which I appreciate. However, Matt long made this movie. He was simply adorable. Nothing all that special, yet nothing to fill one with contempt or distress either.
