In my opinion the movie starts out slow, and honestly did not grab myattention. I even looked for something else on TV to watch, but nothingelse interested me either. As I continued to watch I got engrossed inthe story line, and was wonderfully surprised how it all comes togetherin the end!! Very uniquely, and beautifully written!! I will watch thiswhenever I see it on TV in the future for sure!! It's about a singlemother of two kids. She loses her job after being late because she sawa lady collapse and proceeded to give her CPR. Then she finds a new jobonly an hour after losing her first one. While she is providing CPR tothe lady, her necklace falls off, and lands inside the coat of the ladyshe is giving CPR to. Throughout the movie a guy keeps showing up (in agood way). The necklace, the lady who hired her right after losing herjob, the lady she gave CPR to, and the mysterious guy...you just haveto watch this movie to find out the incredible story of how they alltie together in a magical way!!

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIRNAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVEDWITH THE MOVIE. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGEAGAINST THE FILM. NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY THEME MOVIES. IHAVE NO AGENDA. I AM FARE.
In this film Christine Eisley's life is coming undone. She's been firedfrom her job, evicted from her home and her ex-husband is taking her tocourt for custody of their children. To make matters worse, she'smisplaced a very special family heirloom, a star-shaped locket handeddown from her father, who disappeared from her life when she was ayoung girl. But things seem to be looking a little brighter forChristine when she lands a new job working with a gregarious bakeryowner and a holiday romance begins to blossom with Jason, the handsomegrandson of a sweet couple who own a popular local store.
This story is about love family and helping people. The message isfamily is always important. Now "The Christmas Secret" is a veryromantic film with a huge heart. Its well made. Its well worth seekingout. Family safe but most likely small children will be bored.
Merry Christmas 2016

Hallmark premiered several new Christmas movies this year, and this onehits a lot of sentimental high points to be among the best.
A struggling single mother who waitresses moves to the town shebelieves her father (who died when she was a baby) had grown up in, tohopefully learn about him.
Acting by the entire cast is spot on for the approach this one takes.It's unashamedly a "feel-good" type movie, but with this story that'snot a problem at all. The numerous secret connections between thecharacters suggest a higher power is at work bringing all these peopletogether, a story line that is told in an uplifting manner that isnever schmaltzy. The characters are likable (except for the villainswho play their villainy very well too).
Just a good-natured film for some Christmas season cheer, which is whatthis movie set out to be.
While her life is falling apart, single mom Christine finds a magical family heirloom that leads to love and good fortune during Christmas.
