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

Goofs

The food in the freezer isn't likely to have defrosted overnight. The freezer is located in a barn that does not look well insulated (if insulated at all!) and the barn door is just a piece of wood. It is definitely below freezing outside, since there is a lot of snow on the ground that isn't melting. Plus, the freezer door was left open overnight, when it is generally even colder than during the day. See more »
