Here’s the synopsis for the movie from Hallmark: “A real estate developer is given the opportunity of his career to transform an old shopping complex into a prime location. Unfortunately, there is one tenant who is holding out—the Christmas shop owner he met by happenstance just days ago.” Hallmark also provided another synopsis here: “After her parents’ retirement, Stephanie Nichols has happily taken the reins at the Christmas Shop, the beloved, old-fashioned holiday boutique they opened 40 years ago. But this Christmas may be the store’s last: a property developer has bought the building and is evicting its tenants. A handsome, real estate-savvy customer named Michael offers to help Stephanie out, only to discover that his employer is responsible for her dilemma. Moreover, Michael’s boss has tasked him with the day-to-day oversight of the new development, a situation that grows ever more awkward as he and Stephanie find themselves falling for each other. Will love win, or will real estate triumph?”
The movie stars Ellen Hollman as Stephanie. Ellen’s credits include Lethal Weapon, Into the Badlands, Spartacus: War of the Damned, Road House 2, The Scorpion King 4, The Secrets of Emily Blair, Asylum, Fling, Skateland, Rules of Engagement, Numb3rs, Medium, Victorious, Weeds, In Plain Sight, Criminal Minds, The O.C., NCIS, Malcolm in the Middle, and more.

Dave Koz also stars in this movie. Koz is a well known saxophonist who just released a new Christmas album, “Dave Koz & Friends 20th Anniversary Christmas.” Stephanie and Michael go to one of his Christmas concerts during the movie. Dave said he was a nervous wreck about the movie. “I’m at the point in my career where I have done this for a very long time, but I would have never thought that I would be acting in a Hallmark Christmas movie! But I love the challenge of something new.”
Cynthia Gibb stars as Helen, Michael’s boss.
