“On one hand, the movie was rather enjoyable and proved to be more than the usual Hallmark Christmas cheese of over-the-top romance. Sure, the movie had romance in it as well, but the romance didn’t feel overshadowed by the storyline and the rest of the movie. Then, on the other hand, the storyline indicates that lying through your teeth and identity theft is okay to do, and you won’t even get a slap on the wrist for doing so. On that account, writers Bonnie Fairweather, Paul Campbell, and Rick Garman dropped the ball.”-Paul Hakonsen (a fan).
