Thanks to the Leads, Worth Watching
Ali Liebert is back in form in this latest holiday offering. There was something about her in the last one, A Gift to Cherish, that seemed a little off. It’s been a week or more since I have seen this, so I’ll just make this brief. This was the unexpectedly male nanny plot. He is a well-known children’s author in disguise and she is an event planner who needs to wrangle this author to the career make or break event she is planning. Little does she know, this reclusive author is right under her nose. I loved that the male lead was just a normal-looking guy, and his rival, her boyfriend, was fictionally male model handsome. She is a controller and scheduler to the point that I really disliked her at times, and he has a more loosey-goosey approach to child raising. So it’s kind of two plots for the price of one. It wasn’t perfect. The constant mantra of “You are safe, You are loved” to her little niece (orphaned) was unbelievably cheesy. But all in all a complex story with a lot going on, some tension, and good chemistry make this worth watching.
