Watch A Storybook Christmas
In "A Storybook Christmas," Ali Liebert stars as Jessica, an author of children's books who has hit a rough patch in her personal and professional life. After a string of unsuccessful book releases and a failed engagement, Jessica finds herself unsure of her next move both personally and professionally. Enter her niece, Olivia (Habree Larratt), who is determined to help Jessica rediscover her love for writing by organizing a writing retreat in her hometown of Evergreen. Despite some initial hesitancy, Jessica agrees to the retreat and is surprised when she arrives in Evergreen to find that it is a picturesque, snow-covered wonderland that seems to have leaped straight out of the pages of a storybook.
Jessica's troubles do not disappear instantly, however. She is on a tight deadline to finish her next book and is struggling to find inspiration. Plus, her ex-fiancÃ© happens to be the mayor of the town, and their uncomfortable past makes it tough for her to fully relax and enjoy the serenity of the retreat.
As Jessica attempts to find her writing mojo once again, she is introduced to the charming and handsome Nick (Jake Epstein), a local chef who frequently cooks spectacular meals for the writing group. While sparks fly between the two, Jessica is hesitant to pursue a new relationship so soon after her last one ended in heartbreak.
Throughout the movie, Jessica realizes that the key to finding inspiration isn't necessarily sitting down at her desk and forcing it out, but rather living life and experiencing the moments that inspire her. She leans into the cozy, festive atmosphere of Evergreen and begins to feel the creativity flowing once again.
While Jessica's personal life is in flux, the writing retreat seems to be a success as participants begin sharing their work and inspiring one another. Along the way, Olivia also learns valuable lessons about family and tradition, as she becomes more connected to her heritage through the town's annual Christmas pageant.
As the holiday approaches and the writing retreat comes to a close, Jessica faces a choice about whether to return to her old life and job or to embrace the changes that Evergreen has brought to her life. Amidst lots of snow, twinkling lights, and festive cheer, "A Storybook Christmas" is a heartwarming tale of rediscovering one's passions and finding love in unexpected places.
