Storyline

From Hallmark: Christine Eisley's life is coming undone. She's been fired from her job, threatened to be evicted from her home and her ex-husband is taking her to court for custody of their children. To make matters worse, she's misplaced a very special family heirloom, a star-shaped locket handed down from her father, who disappeared from her life when she was a young girl. But things seem to be looking a little brighter for Christine when she lands a new job working with a gregarious bakery owner and a holiday romance begins to blossom with Jason, the handsome grandson of a sweet couple who own a popular local store. As she uncovers a long-standing family secret, Christine's luck might be starting to turn, bringing her good fortune and true love just in time for Christmas.

Goofs

When Jason draws Christine's attention to the celestial "big dipper," he remarks that the star on the end of the "handle" is the North Star. However, that star is not part of the big dipper, and is actually located above the opposite end (the bowl) of the dipper. See more »

Loose threads come together
29 November 2017 | by Jackbv123See all my reviews

This Hallmark movie is one of those which include some mystery and/or drama leading up to the heartwarming moments.

This story has several loose threads dangling about the life of Christine. For much of the movie, Christine is getting pounded by the things that threaten to unravel her life and family. She loses a job, gets an eviction notice and her ex threatens to take her children.

There is a mysterious locket that keeps popping up. It actually started out as Christine's locket but it gets lost and bounces around to some of these loose threads and the viewer knows that once we find the locket's secret, the threads will tie together and form a strong cord.

The acting is good enough. Bethany Joy Lenz endures as a single mom who struggles to hold it together. John Reardon is one of the threads and Jason soon begins to form a relationship with Rosemary. Oh wait, that's not right, because this is one of the running gags. Jason mistakenly thinks Christine's name is Rosemary.

While there are many things about this movie that we can predict, at least eventually, there is just enough of a Christmas secret to make it interesting.
