Storyline

The story of Christmas Joy is based on the book of the same name written by USA Today Bestselling Author Nancy Naigle. Danielle will play the titular character, Joy Holbrook. She's a corporate market researcher, gunning for a promotion within her firm. Just as her company's CEO is taking notice, Joy finds out her Aunt Ruby has broken her ankle and will be undergoing surgery. Despite the less than opportune timing, Joy makes her way back home to Crystal Falls, NC to be with her Aunt. Stars seem to be aligned as Joy sees her former crush, Ben Andrews, while at the hospital. At first, Joy is focused solely on helping her Aunt heal; even taking over her position as chair of the local Cookie Crawl competition. Eventually, she begins to let Ben in and remembers there's no place like home for the holidays. The pair work together on the Cookie Crawl to make the event a success. Written by Hallmark

Not well-done...more of a Medium-rare
9 November 2018 | by Lew777See all my reviews

The best thing about the movie is probably Matt Long who plays the part of Ben , the Hospital Administrator ( although you never see him working !). His role was played with effervescence & freshness . Danielle Panabaker wasn't bad as Joy, though she did have some weird facial expressions. The story was pretty lightweight, even for Hallmark. A Cookie Crawl and Gingerbread Contest isn't going to uproot any story trees anytime soon ! The DC story about a Dept store, Weathertons thinking about expanding was more plausible. It passes the time well enough but it's a reasonable snack not a big juicy steak !
