The Hallmark Christmas romance is a light and warming watch that is just perfect for this cold season. Each one of us has a what if? in our lives, be it minor or major. It leaves us wondering and longing for something that could have been. Frank's was his first love Claire, who he had let go of in his youth. The romance includes some good ol' wooing, new meetings, and fate playing its part as the duo tries and deal with matters of the heart.

Laura Vandervoort and Harry Lennix made a really good pair, with the two of them sharing an easy and comfortable camaraderie that perfectly captured their familial bond.  Full of the beauty of Christmas the flick is just the right setting for Megan who has been having a tough time. As she discovers and follows her true passion, we can't help but support her as she navigates new waters. Just like most things in life, love too doesn't come easy as we see Frank not get the reaction he hoped for from Claire. Misunderstandings and unsaid words make for a realistic portrayal of love that sees hardships as not everything can be hunky-dory. Life has different things in store for each of them as we see Megan unexpectedly connect with Steve (Niall Matter), the lodge owner.

The two bond and share their thoughts, concerns and true wishes with each other which quite sweetly captured the lovely feeling of just having someone to talk to freely, without being judged. Just as hope was lost and goodbyes were said, happiness rears its head once more when Claire gives Frank another chance while Megan gets together with Steve, making for a very happy and toasty warm ending.
