A Christmas Romance Review

Image for A Christmas Romance

A widow with 2 young daughters living high in the mountains is facing the prospect of a bleak xmas having lost her job and with the threat of the bank taking her home due to non mortgage payments.

★★★★★

Olivia Newton-John is the predictably wholesome Julia, cake-baking widow and mother of two, who stumbles across romance one twinkly Christmas night. When up-tight banker Brian crashes his car on Julia’s mountainside farm, he finds himself stranded in alien territory. But after felling a tree and helping Daisy the sheep though labour, he realises he digs the rural lifestyle. He just has to woo the stubborn Julia. A city slicker versus farmer chick tale this frothy romantic comedy is pure seasonal, sickly-sweet tosh.

Too bloody nice by half.
