An emotional, Christmas drama, A Bramble House Christmas is one to watch with its endearing storyline and charismatic leads.

After the death of his estranged father, Finn Conrad becomes suspicious when $100,000 and an all inclusive holiday has been left to a mystery woman – his father’s nurse.

Finn decides to confront Willa Fairchild and stop her from using his father’s money, assuming that she’s swindled him. He has a lawyer draw up an injunction and travels to Bramble House – where Willa Fairchild is staying over the holidays curtesy of Mr Conrad.

But in typical Hallmark fashion, he soon falls in love with her, and her young son.

And if that wasn’t emotional enough (there’s a death at the beginning!), Willa’s young son was ill and the money was to repay his medical bills.

As he spends more time with her and her son, Finn grows to care for them and chooses to keep his true identity a secret. But when his sister shows up, the secret comes out.

A touching story, based on a simple story, A Bramble House Christmas is a lovely festive romance that ticks all the boxes – it’s emotion-provoking and well-cast with an interesting premise and although predictable, the happy ending is well delivered.
