So, as a kid I can remember the usual festive suspects – Rudolph, Frosty, Charlie Brown… But as I grew up, I began to appreciate holiday movies in a whole new way. For me, it’s all about the nostalgia.
When I was younger, my mom would always put White Christmas on as we decorated the Christmas tree. I loved the singing (oh, Bing!), the costumes, Danny Kay. But most of all, I loved my mother’s commentary. She’d tell me every movie Bing and Danny had ever been in, just who Rosemary Clooney was, and tidbits and other information that made me question if she’d ever had a job working for Variety. She always knew everything about every movie, but White Christmas was her favorite. And no matter how many times she’d tell me just what my Grandfather thought of Vera-Ellen’s thigh gap, it was like hearing it for the first time, year after year.
In White Christmas, there’s a little bit of deceit that eventually turns into love…just like in Linda O’Connor’s upcoming release – Perfectly Honest.

You never know where your words will take you.
When Mikaela Finn agreed to be Sam’s ‘fiancée’ for a weekend, she probably should have told him that she’s a doctor. Sam O’Brien, aka ‘Dr. Eye Candy’, is trying to shed his playboy reputation and convince a small town hospital that he’s ready to settle down. But when his ‘fiancée’ helps deliver a baby in the middle of the meet and greet, it’s a bit of a shock. If he’d known the whole truth, he might have done things a little differently because somehow his ‘fiancée’ ends up stealing his job and his heart. Not exactly the change he wanted. Lies and deceit – it’s a match made in heaven!
