In "Let It Snow", an ambitious development executive, Stephanie, is sent to a newly purchased lodge in Maine with instructions to turn it in to an ultra-modern resort, never expecting a warm Christmas welcome to melt away her frosty attitude. While preparing to rebuild the Snow Valley Lodge from the ground up, Stephanie butts heads with her property guide, Brady Lewis, who has decided to leave his family's business over creative differences with his dad... but those combative feelings soon turn romantic. With Stephanie's newfound Christmas spirit and unexpected holiday romance, she begins to question Falcon's overhaul. Will she stick with her boss/father's plans to tear everything down or find a way to save what she has come to love? Stars Candace Cameron-Bure, Alan Thicke, and Jesse Hutch.

Golden Globe(R) nominee Nicollette Sheridan stars as Charlotte Hart in "The Christmas Spirit" as a renowned journalist who won't stop at anything to get the truth. Charlotte is spending the holidays with her family in their small town when a real estate developer approaches with quite an offer. Skeptical and looking for the real scoop, Charlotte drives to see the real estate head honcho to question him. However, while en route, she gets into a terrible car accident and wakes up in the hospital only to realize that her body is in a coma, but her spirit is very much awake. With only a few days left before the town votes on the development, Charlotte must try to change the minds of the developer and the town, but that is no easy task when no one can see or hear her. Stars Nicolette Sheridan, Bart Johnson, and Olympia Dukakis.
