An event planner mistakenly throws out her grandmother's Christmas ornaments, and the person who finds the ornaments leads her on a scavenger hunt to retrieve them, helping her to find the magic of Christmas again along the way.
Tycoon grandpa La Foret revives his family's traditional Christmas gathering at the lodge Claire manages for him, five years after it ceased with the mysterious lake drowning of his daughter Anne. But it's a one-off, as he has terminal cancer. The traditional treasure-hunt will now designate his sole major heir. The relatives can set aside their mutual conflicts and team up, or waste their chances. Grandpa dies during the game time, but Sergio Boniti, his Venetian new personal assistant, is authorized to supervise the game before the professionals arrive. However Anne's death haunts the game, which already has her memory as theme.Written by
The only thing about Christmas is when this is happening and when mom died 5 years ago. Also, there really isn't a romance here.
Granddad likes creepy games and this one fits that. This game is in honor of his dead daughter, Claire's mother. There are some interesting twists. Perhaps I should have guessed the outcome, but I didn't. The clues needed context which came as the movie progressed.
Claire is a saint, apparently with no flaws, granddad's favorite. (That's fine with me because Jennifer Finnigan is a favorite of mine.) Just about everyone else has a skeleton in their closet . Some are revealed early and others late in the game.
True, there are some glaring plot holes like that the best raw detective handling evidence and putting fingerprints all over it, but perhaps the thinking was that the family would never let the police investigate. Or the same person wandering around alone and unarmed knowing there was something very dangerous going on. There are some other flaws like that also.
Still, I liked this a lot better than many of the other amateur detective movie series. Hallmark M&M should give Finnagan more like this even though I'm pretty sure this isn't Hallmark.
