Storyline

With Christmas just weeks away, the architecture firm Taylor works for enters her in a contest in which the teams will design and build life-sized gingerbread houses. After the contest, Taylor will likely be getting a promotion to a position in another city. The firm teams her up with Isabelle, a renowned French pastry chef with whom Taylor instantly locks horns. When Isabelle backs out, Taylor stumbles into a local bakery and meets Adam, a baker and single dad. In an act of desperation, Taylor convinces Adam to partner with her for the contest, arguing that winning would give the bakery and his designs much-needed exposure. For years Taylor has been resistant to call anywhere 'home' for fear it will only be temporary. But the time she spends with Adam and his daughter in their cozy home, decorating for the holidays and exploring the town at Christmas, fills her with a longing for a place to call home.

Rough around the edges
8 July 2020 | by r96skSee all my reviews

As cheesy and predictable as you'd imagine.

There are worse Christmas TV films out there, but 'A Gingerbread Romance' fails to entertain even by the smallest of margins. It's all just rough around the edges, particularly with the editing and pacing.

Duane Henry (Adam) and Tia Mowry (Taylor) lead competently, with both of them having likeable qualities and giving alright performances - they just needed more chemistry together to take it up a notch. The rest of the cast are kinda poor, though most only have one or two lines to be fair.

I partly like the premise involving the creation of gingerbread houses, but it's nowhere near compelling - with Adam & Taylor's supposed rivals barely troubling them, so the story lacks any real acceleration. It's just a simple romance spread across 90 minutes.
