About The Movie:
The holidays are quickly approaching, and real estate tycoon Sharon Farris (Vivica A. Fox, “Summer in the City”) knows what she wants for Christmas: a picturesque small bed and breakfast in the cute Christmas-centric town of Garland, Alaska. Determined to get her hands on the property at any cost, she sends one of her junior execs, Erika (Sweetin), to convince the owner to sell. Much to Erika’s surprise, the owner turns out to be Andy Holliday (O’Donnell), her exboyfriend from college. As Erika spends time in the town trying to convince Andy and his father Frank (Brian Doyle-Murray, “Lodge 49”) to sell the property to Sharon, the city girl finds herself falling in love with both the charm of Garland and her ex-boyfriend. In fact, the experience changes her so much that when she learns that business has been poor and he’s on the verge of bankruptcy, she decides to use her knowledge and experience to help him keep the very hotel she’d been sent to take away from him. Is there enough time left before December 25th to successfully turn things around? Even more importantly, as their relationship develops, will Erika and Andy be able to avoid their mistakes of the past and live happily ever after?
