A corporate agent is sent to a small town to buy a cookie company and shut down its factory. When she starts falling in love with the factory’s owner, the town’s Christmas spirit over takes her.
Jill Wagner again in another adorable film, this time with cutie Wes Brown who is one of those familiar faces who I know I’ve seen in something before but can never place and have to resort to looking him up on imdb.
Christmas Cookies uses the plot arc that is very common in Hallmark films where a corporate person from the big city goes to a small town in order to close down a small, beloved family business and source of only income to the town residents. Just as you would expect, * spoiler alert * the corporate executive and small business owner end up falling in love and saving the business.
This film was super Christmassy and the snow and the sledding made it especially festive. The secondary characters aren’t really there to make a big impact on the viewer but rather to help the film along but I did rather like the inn owner and also Hannah’s sister – think she deserves her own film!
Most eye roll inducing moment: I never quite understood Jake pretending to be a cab driver thing or why the little girl was doing the sled race with Jake and not her own Dad.
