About The Movie:
When Kayleigh’s (McKellar) New York advice column, “Your Best Self,” is the casualty of belt-tightening by the paper right before Christmas, she heads home for the holidays to reconnect with her family and consider what’s next. Kayleigh’s quiet Christmas at home gets turned on end when Tripp (Neal), the new editor in chief responsible for the decision, suddenly shows up to woo her back and make her loyal readers happy. Kayleigh’s resolute in her decision to stay put so Tripp extends his visit to try and sway her. Claiming she’s already taken a new job with her local paper Kayleigh quickly gets to work on a daily column about how to be your best Christmas self. Over the next few days as Tripp attends the various holiday activities in town highlighted in the column, he begins to loosen up and enjoy himself and Kayleigh starts to see him in a different light. An attraction between them begins to develop but a past love of Kayleigh’s (Dan Payne, “MatchMaker Mysteries: A Fatal Romance”) resurfaces and could create a detour to their budding romance.
