‘Christmas with Holly’

Hallmark says it best: Maggie Conway had it with big-city living, especially after her husband-to-be left her at the altar. She moves to small-town Washington state, opens a toy store dedicated to expanding kids’ imaginations and meets Mark Nagle, proprietor of the local coffee shop. Mark’s No. 1 priority is his 6-year-old niece, Holly, whose mother has passed away, leaving him as her main caregiver, along with her two other uncles. Holly hasn’t spoken a word since her mother died, and the three men try relentlessly to get her to speak. Is there room in Maggie and Mark’s busy lives for romance?
