This is good for a cheesy Hallmark Christmas movie. Lori Laughlin is a great leading lady -- that's actually what drew me to it. And I liked that they made this have not just a romance, but (without spoiling too much) another element to her personal life that needed resolving -- though the addition of this other piece of her story also felt a little tacked on.

The love interest is funny and likeable as well. I find that if I don't like both of the romantic leads, these movies don't resonate as much because I'm not rooting for them as much and/or living vicariously.

As is typical with these sort of movies, some of the side characters were poorly acted. Honestly, that's almost part of the fun with these movies.

Overall, I thought this movie struck a good balance between lighthearted cheesiness (the uber-Christmasy townsfolk mostly delivered that) and drama. I wouldn't easily classify it as either a romantic comedy or a drama for that reason, and that's kind of refreshing, since some of these movies go too far in one direction or another.

Not memorable

It was ok. I found the story a little undeveloped. She hated Christmas and then changed so fast. I also think I'm getting burned out on these over-the-top Christmas towns, and seeing the same actors again and again. It wasn't my favorite Christmas movie...I even had to look up the plot review to remember which one it was.

A Great Family Movie

I loved this movie, as did my whole family (2 adults, 2 teens). It has mystery, humor, and romance- everything I love in a movie. I love Lori Loughlin! The movie was extra special because her daughter is in it also, playing a fun character. The best movies are ones you want to watch again, and this is one of those.
