This story has all the earmarks of a favorite Hallmark movie.
When Mike Ward moves to suburban Auckland in an effort to forget the past, he doesn’t expect to land in the middle of a Christmas card.
Erica Owens, his annoying, distracting, gorgeous neighbor is the chairman of the Christmas lights committee for their street, and she wants him to cooperate.
These two butt heads while fighting an attraction neither one wants.
Erica is just getting over a bad marriage and wants nothing more than to make this Christmas special for her young son.
Mike wishes everyone would just leave him the hell alone, but he can’t ignore the lonesome child next door, or his courageous mother.
Can a compromise be met before the big light up festival, or will this relationship go up in smoke?
