About The Movie:
Best-selling children’s author Sarah Collins (Ramos) has a family legend: if you sleep with one of her Gramma Mia’s Kismet cookies under your pillow on Christmas Eve, you’ll dream of your true love. But when Sarah tried it years ago and then confessed her love to Travis (Marks), the boy living next door, she ended up with a broken heart. Now Sarah’s back in town, and in a surprising twist, Jasmine (Rubi Tupper, “An Amish Sin”), the winner of the Christmas contest and Sarah’s #1 fan, turns out to be Travis’s young daughter. When Sarah sees Travis again, the same feelings bubble up but this time, she’s determined to keep them to herself. But this proves tough as they reconnect and rebuild their relationship. Gramma Mia (Henner), upon realizing the power of the Kismet cookie, has refused to make them since Sarah’s heartbreak. With the urging of some old friends, Sarah makes a fresh batch to see if the magic of the cookies is still there and if they can help open some hearts to love just in time for Christmas.
