Watch Christmas by Starlight
In Christmas by Starlight, which premiered in 2020, we meet two lawyers: lawyer-at-heart, lawyer-in-fact and self-proclaimed âQueen of Christmasâ Carly (Kimberley Sustad), and self-assured Jack (Paul Campbell), whose parents own the firm. Their paths cross when Carlyâs uncle passes away and leaves her his family farm in time for Christmas. Carly believes this is the perfect opportunity for her to start her Christmas tree business, but her dreams are shattered when Jack, the lawyer in charge of her uncleâs estate, informs her that the estate has a mortgage and that she will be forced to sell the farm.
Carly decides to fight back and goes against Jack, even if it means she has to take on some of Jackâs clients to make it happen, and Jack doesnât hold back in arguing against Carly. As the two of them go head-to-head over the farmâs future, their opportunity to work together in a merger arises, forcing them to put their rivalry aside, partnering up for the benefit of both firms.
As the two of them work around the clock in preparation for the deal, Carly and Jackâs relationship deepens. They begin to see harmony, trust and affection in each other, and the attraction is undeniable. Despite the challenges, the two of them manage to keep everything together and stay ahead of the game. The only question is, whilst working side-by-side, can they keep their newfound love for each other under wraps, or will the tension lead to a full-blown office romance?
