What a wonderful holiday romance to put you in the mood for the season. Julie and Logan seem destined to meet, at least that’s what Logan’s Uncle Willy thought. Logan’s Uncle Willy provide some of his best summers, escaping to Montana to spend time on his ranch. Following an accident, Logan returns only to have Uncle Willy die, leaving him the ranch. Logan sees himself as a New Yorker and professional tennis player. Julie has been working and supporting her friend as she builds her new business. Her art, her real passion, has taken a back seat. Could a chance encounter to buy a box of chocolates bring these two lost souls together? Is this the spark needed to help them pursue their true passions? Truly a wonderful holiday romance that provided a perfect escape from all the hustle and bustle.
