Plot Synopsis

Based on the book by Richard Paul Evans. Elise Donner is a thirtysomething divorcee who runs a busy travel agency alongside her intractable ex-husband, Dan. As the holiday season begins and she dreads spending another Christmas alone, she meets Nick, a single and handsome attorney. Since they are both unmarried and overly career-focused, they quickly bond over their mutual dislike of the holidays. Nick shares that his law firm is considering making him a partner, but has a history of choosing only those who are married with a family. Realizing they're each about to face a lonely holiday season and that having a girlfriend would increase his chances of being made a partner, he suggests that they pretend to be a couple. Understanding that his proposal would benefit them both, she accepts his "mistletoe promise," agreeing to adhere to its terms, which include: remaining platonic, asking no probing personal questions, and concluding the charade on Christmas Eve. As they spend time together and engage in traditional holiday activities they soon find themselves beginning to enjoy the holiday season. Before long, the fake couple starts to develop real feelings for each other. But when the truth about their relationship is revealed and she mistakenly believes that Nick is romantically involved with his paralegal, she returns to the travel agency, only to uncover Dan's efforts to sabotage the business. Now that she's finally found the Christmas spirit, Elise hopes to find a way to salvage her business and wonders if she'll ever find love for the holidays.
