The Spirt of Christmas

source
Kate Jordan ( Jen Lilley) is a workaholic lawyer who is assigned to sell the Hollyoak Inn after the owner passes away. It proves difficult because every twelve days before Christmas, the inn is haunted by the first owner Daniel (Thomas Beaudoin). Kate is undeterred by Daniel’s presence, determined to sell the house so that she may win a promotion. Kate resolves to solve the mystery of Daniel’s death which will help him move on.

The two leads are both gorgeous. Thomas Beaudoin’s looked a little too hipster to be a ghost from a hundred years ago. Then again, many hipster men sport beards so they could come from that time too.  Jen Lilley and Thomas Beaudoin had great chemistry but I was conflicted about their characters getting together. There’s a long-lost love in the film too and I felt sorry for her.


This was a cute film and unexpectedly spooky at times. I was expecting more Casper the Friendly Ghost type of vibe when I watched this movie but it’s one step above it. I am a person who scares easily so I was a little scared at the menacing presence and door slamming. Other people won’t have that problem at all.

  2. I didn't re-watch this one for Christmas 2017, but did see it when it was new to DVD in 2016. It's slow moving, but really sweet. I loved the old-fashioned touches and overall "Gothic" feel of the production.

    Plus, it's always fun to see Hallmark favorite Jen Lilley in something, and did you see Thomas Beaudoin in the new Hallmark Love on the Slopes?

    Glad you enjoyed this one, Carlyn! :)
