In the end, both the past and the present will lead back to the Angel of Christmas.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
