Editorial Reviews

Based on the popular novel by Jane Maas, "Angel Of Christmas" follows Susan Nicholas, a newspaper writer whose boss has given her three weeks to write a holiday story about her great grandfather and the angel he carved as a young man. As the days countdown to her Christmas Eve deadline, Susan finds herself being courted by two very different men as she unravels the details of a romantic triangle from her grandfathers' life. In the end, both the past and the present will lead back to the Angel of Christmas.

“Angel of Christmas” is a lovely modern Christmas love story with a look back to see how the past has shaped the future. In the story, Susan, a bright young copy editor is given the chance to write an article about Christmas. She pitched the idea based on her family history regarding a Christmas Angel that, in 1926, her great-grandfather (Owen) made for a young New York actress with whom he was in love.

The problem for Susan is that there is very little information available about this time period in Owen's life. She becomes challenged to investigate and find out what happened and why the couple did not work out.

While she is working through her article, Susan is confronted with two men who are vying for her attention. Her co-worker, Derrick, is a very self-assured marketer who has goals in life and who, apparently, has decided that Susan meets one. The other man, Brady, is an artist who wants to help Susan find her Christmas spirit once again.

Susan has been more than slightly bah-humbug about Christmas after her boyfriend left her on Christmas Eve two years before. To add insult to injury, he left her for their mutual yoga teacher. Susan not only has to finish her article but also to find herself and discover what she wants rather than allowing her life to be controlled by someone who left her for someone else.

Along with the modern story, we see back flashes of the time in which Owen lived and how his relationship with the young actress bloomed and what happened afterward. There is also a subplot story of how the handmade angel has influenced the love life of Susan's family for almost 100 years.

The chemistry between Susan (Jennifer Finnigan) and Brady (Jonathan Scarfe) is wonderful. I was really marvelous to see Ms. Finnigan again.

You know how sometimes you meet a person and you think “What a pill”? Well at first sight, that is kind of how I felt about Susan. We are introduced to Susan as she goes about her day like it is any other day, but all around her you can see the buzz of Christmas. Christmas themed coffee drinks, cookies and decorations abound and people are charging into the Christmas spirit, but Susan is disinterested and disengaged. She simply has no interest in any of the holiday merriment and is fairly unimpressed with all the Christmas season is offering. We quickly see that she is not a hollow and cold woman, just a woman who has been hurt and is spending her time focused on her career as a copy editor for the newspaper who has dreams of being a writer.

And then there’s Brady, a very optimistic and charming artist who has set his sights on brightening Susan’s day and reintroducing Christmas joy into her life. Considering Susan has been given a green light to write a Christmas story for her paper on a very old family heirloom, a hand carved Christmas angel, his attentions have come along just in time. Christmas is going to have a chance to touch her heart again.

Angel of Christmas is a sweet story with times for giggles and guessing games. I loved that there was this underlying story of the origin of this rather large wooden tree topper and a chance for us to guess along as Susan dug deeper into this family treasure (of course the guessing could just be me, I can't help that due to my love of mystery). Watching Susan and Brady become friends and enjoy each other’s company was sweet too. It is definitely an endearing story that will bring light to the holiday season. It really is a gem.

I did not purchase Angel of Christmas...yet but I have enjoyed it on TV.

I am so happy this was made available! I have been looking for it awhile! This is a story that you really need to pay attention as the story unfolds. How this Angel was created with great love and brought great love into generation after generation of one particular family. And how the story ends is truly a gift of love on many levels. The development of the main characters are excellent. So very well written, and presented by the actors!

Based on Jane Maas' novel, Angel of Christmas presents an old family folklore that began on Broadway in New York City, circa 1925. It concerns a smitten woodcarver from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and a stunning stage actress with long golden hair and lavender eyes. Decades later, it'll impact Susan's life. Present day now, and Susan Nicholas (Jennifer Finnigan) is a copy editor for the New York Courier. Just as pertinent is that she was dumped by her boyfriend on Christmas day two Christmases ago, and for a yoga instructor. You should note that, as this movie opens, there's 24 shopping days left until Christmas. Understandably, Susan's not in the mood, as evidenced by the absence of Christmas swag on her work desk.

See, Susan aspires to be a writer for her paper, except her hard-nosed editor Yvette (Holly Robinson-Peete) has shot down each story she's pitched. And yet Yvette is willing to give her her big break, but only if Susan can come up with an amazing, authentic, personal holiday piece. Susan assures her, "I live for Christmas. I'm the Queen of Christmas!" That right there was a bunch of crock.

Since this is a Hallmark holiday movie, there must be an abundance of sap, what the millennials refer to as "the feels." (They may even throw in a hashtag.) And so we watch and we wait for Susan to resuscitate her yuletide spirit. Dumped two Christmases ago? Well, today, she's holding it down in the romantic front, what with being courted by her successful (but obnoxious) colleague (Tahmoh Penikett) and by this unkempt artist/asst. gallery manager (Jonathan Scarfe) she keeps running into.

Susan's three-week deadline is coming up fast.
