Christmas from the Heart has helped so many people in the small town of Pine River, Washington, and Olivia Berg is carrying on the tradition of her mother and her grandmother and great-grandmother. Running a non-profit is difficult at the best of times, but Christmas seems to be the time they all are asking for donations.
This year they are falling short. Times are tough everywhere and this year their major donor must say no.
Guy Hightower is at his wits end with his two older brothers lack of planning and control of their company. Being the youngest makes it hard to get your voice heard over your older brothers. Cuts must be made if this company is to succeed. They’ve all gotten used to living the high life and driving expensive cars. And this year their donations went to more high profile charities. It’s just business.
But Olivia has no intention of taking no for an answer as she hounds the man and his poor secretary. What’s a girl to do?
Much like a Hallmark Movie, the poor guy winds up in Pine River, stranded by his Masarati in the snow and guess who is driving by and offers him a ride? Yep. He uses a fake name once he realizes who she is and then they proceed to bring joy and happiness to the town. Until she finds out who he is.
I have to say this was very predictable and Olivia was rather a bully about asking for money from everyone! She was rather unlikeable as a character. Basically, it’s the old Cinderella story. Poor woman, a Rich man who saves the day and just like that! Happy Christmas.
This is the reason I don’t watch those movies.
