Trivia

When Emmett and Nell were cutting the Christmas tree, the safety cover was left on the axe blade. Then, when the tree was brought into the house, the base was clean cut as if it were done with a saw rather than an axe. See more »

Best of 2018! Kristoffer Polaha is TOPS! Must see!
19 December 2018 | by happybenesSee all my reviews

This is the best Hallmark Christmas movie I've seen this year, and maybe ever! (Which says a lot because I tend to watch these Christmas movies like it's my job!) Kristoffer Polaha is fantastic and charming and so natural. He and his leading lady have wonderful chemistry, and she's great and natural also.

I've never written a review for IMDb but felt so strongly about about this one, I just had to log on and tell others DON'T MISS THIS!

The storyline has plot devices that are typical to a Hallmark movie, yet they seem fresh here somehow. There are great supporting characters and all around solid acting. Very likable characters and development.

I've always enjoyed Kristoffer Polaha but this movie has raised him to the top of the Hallmark leading men, and put him in a league of his own (in my opinion).

I want a sequel!! (I really, really do!) And a trip to Springdale 😉 🎄
