| Interesting idea
The premise of the scavenger hunt is slightly unusual. There is also a hint of random-acts-of-kindness. This latter is the one endearing thing about this movie and there are a few tender moments as a result.

For me, on the down side, there were too many tropes that I'm tired of. Save the town ______ (fill in the blank). If you do what you are assigned to you will get a promotion. Old flames and why-did-you-leave-me. Matchmaking father (or other family and friends). Workaholic current boyfriend. Christmas traditions ticked off like a list (in this case a scavenger hunt list). But all these things are just building blocks for the story, even if most of them are building blocks I'm not thrilled by.

The story was OK, but it didn't really have any highs or lows other than the random acts of kindness. I knew very early on exactly how the major conflict would be resolved, and of course the general course of the story was as predictable as usual in these movies.

This is a Christmas romance movie, so the real question is how appealing are the two potential lovers? By themselves, both Kim Shaw and Kevin McGarry do a fine job and their characters are certainly kind and generous. And the movie gave them plenty of screen time together. The problem is that their time together just didn't grab my enthusiasm. They were worked well together, but I didn't really care if they stayed together.

Even though I didn't think this was a great movie, there was nothing really wrong with it and many viewers, especially Hallmark Christmas enthusiasts, may very well love it.
