Christmas Around the Corner Plot
Claire (Alexandra Breckenridge) is a smart and successful venture capitalist in New York City. Her Christmas vacation is an escape to a small and picturesque town in Vermont, where she becomes a guest of the Fortenbury Bookstore. Unfortunately, when Claire arrives, she finds out that there’s been a flood in the town and the authorities have canceled all Christmas celebrations.
To her dismay, she finds that the bookstore itself is in need of serious repair. Being the eternal problem solver, she takes this up as a challenge and decides to breathe new life into the bookstore. As always, it’s easier said than done! She clashes with the owner of the bookstore, a man named Andrew (Jamie Spilchuk).
Andrew says no to all her proposals and battles her as she makes even greater efforts to improve the bookstore. Cupid strikes nonetheless, and the two begin a tentative romance. Andrew is eventually persuaded by an energetic and enthusiastic Claire to work on her ideas to renew the bookstore.
Then, to her shock, Claire finds out that Andrew is planning to sell his bookstore in the New Year. So what will Claire do? Will Andrew lean in to the Christmas spirit and change his mind about selling the bookstore? Will the bookstore survive or fall to the unpredictability of small-town economics?
