Despite the less than opportune timing, Joy makes her way back home to Crystal Falls, NC to be with her Aunt. Stars seem to be aligned as Joy sees her former crush, Ben Andrews, while at the hospital.

Content Advisory

General audiences, Weak Plot

Comments

Weak plot. Same old story. Joy comes home for holiday and meet old High School acquaintance. No Chemistry. Ben is a whimp and too easily put off. Ending is weak and anti climatic. Preparations and execution for the town cookie contest and gingerbread contest was boring and cliche'.
