Too Close for Christmas is a heartwarming holiday romantic comedy that premiered on Lifetime in 2020. The movie stars Chad Michael Murray as Nick, a warm and selfless veterinarian who has recently broken up with his girlfriend, and Jessica Lowndes as Hayley, a kind, hardworking woman who has just lost her job due to her boss's sudden retirement. Vanessa Sears plays Nick's sister, Karen, who is a successful fashion designer living in New York City.

The story begins with Nick and Hayley meeting on a train on their way to their hometown for Christmas. They are both going back to visit their families, and although they don't realize it yet, they will be spending a lot of time together over the next few days. When they arrive in town, Nick and Hayley both realize that their families have rented the same cabin for the holidays, and they have to share it.

At first, Nick and Hayley are not thrilled about spending Christmas together. Nick is still heartbroken over his breakup, and Hayley is worried about finding a new job. However, as they spend more time together, they begin to realize that they have a lot in common. They both love animals, they both enjoy the simple things in life, and they both have a strong sense of family.

As Christmas approaches, Nick and Hayley's families begin to arrive, and the cabin becomes a place of chaos and joy. Nick's sister Karen brings her fiancé, Phillip, who is a bit of a snob and doesn't fit in with the rest of the family. Hayley's mother arrives with her new boyfriend, who is much younger than she is and causes some tension with Hayley's brother.

Despite these challenges, Nick and Hayley continue to grow closer. They spend time together decorating the cabin, baking cookies, and taking care of the animals at Nick's veterinary clinic. As they work together, they begin to develop feelings for each other, but they are too afraid to act on them. Nick is still grieving his breakup, and Hayley is worried about ruining their friendship.

As Christmas Eve arrives, Nick and Hayley are still unsure about what to do. They attend a church service together and share a special moment, but they still can't bring themselves to confess their feelings. However, fate intervenes when a blizzard hits the town, and they are forced to spend the night together in the cabin. As they huddle together for warmth, they finally open up to each other and share a kiss.

The next morning, the blizzard has passed, and the town is covered in snow. Nick and Hayley wake up to a winter wonderland and realize that they are in love. They spend the day together sledding, building snowmen, and exchanging gifts. As the sun sets on Christmas Day, Nick and Hayley share a final kiss under the stars, knowing that they will be together forever.

Overall, Too Close for Christmas is a sweet and charming romantic comedy that is perfect for the holiday season. The chemistry between Chad Michael Murray and Jessica Lowndes is palpable, and the supporting cast is also excellent, providing plenty of laughs and heartwarming moments.
