What You Need To Know:

In PEPPERMINT AND POSTCARDS, a romance on the Great American Family network, a 9-year-old girl named Megan writes a letter to Santa with one wish. She wishes that her mother, Cara, will find the love of her life. Cara finds out about her daughter’s letter, when a local reporter, Chet, shows up at her front door. The letter has gone viral. Cara is excited, but soon realizes that all the attention makes her feel like she can’t be herself. However, maybe the love she desires has been in front of her the whole time.

PEPPERMINT AND POSTCARDS is funny and heartfelt. However, the movie begins with celebrating Cara’s “blended” family, when her divorced husband shows up with his new fiancée for Christmas. Despite there being no faith elements, PEPPERMINT AND POSTCARDS shows the importance of family, promotes love and stresses the importance of being honest. It also has some production mistakes, and Megan prays to Santa. Despite no faith elements, PEPPERMINT AND POSTCARDS is a clean option this holiday season. Due to some more adult themes, Movieguide® advises caution for younger viewers.

More Detail:

In PEPPERMINT AND POSTCARDS on the Great American Family network, 9-year-old girl makes a Christmas wish for her mother to find love, but the mother must choose whom she truly loves when the letter goes viral. PEPPERMINT AND POSTCARDS is a funny, heartwarming Christmas romance promoting family, honesty and love, but it struggles to find its groove until about halfway, and the little girl prays to Santa.

Cara and her 9-year-old daughter, Megan, prepare for the holiday season and a visit from Cara’s ex-husband and his new fiancée. When they arrive, Cara struggles with being alone, despite her genuine desire for Megan to see her father and get to know her soon-to-be stepmother.

Megan, who sees her mother’s pain, writes a letter to Santa with her one wish for the Christmas season. She wishes Cara will find the love of her life. The letter is shared on the internet and goes viral, with thousands of people reading it and becoming invested in Cara’s love life, or lack thereof.

A local reporter named Chet sees this story as an opportunity for a national story, which would all but guarantee his primary goal, a promotion. Chet shows up at Cara’s door and starts to interview her about her life and about the letter. Taken off-guard, Cara agrees to an interview.

Soon, various bachelors start to show up to appear on TV with Cara, and possibly become her true love. However, Cara believes the men who come on the show, and even Chet, are just taking

advantage of her. She starts to believe she will never find true love but has the love Cara seeks been in front of her the entire time?

PEPPERMINT AND POSTCARDS has many funny, heartfelt moments. However, it struggles to find its groove until about the halfway mark. It has some good morals and themes like the importance of family, honesty and showing one another love. That said, it’s one of Great American Family’s weaker Christmas romance movies.

It also has some production mistakes. In one scene the lead actor is holding his phone upside down. There is also no direct correlation between the movie’s contents and the title.

There is also a scene where Megan, the 9-year-old girl prays to Santa. Despite there being no faith elements, PEPPERMINT AND POSTCARDS is a clean, heartfelt option this holiday season.
