You can read the synopsis for the film here:
Nicole Cabella (Anderson) has been handed the reigns of her family’s Northern California olive oil business and has big plans for expansion, until she runs into attorney and childhood crush Jake Brandini (Hollingsworth), heir apparent to the neighboring ranch and her biggest competitor. Jake discovers that the area where Nicole wants to expand may belong to his family, stemming from a decades-long feud that’s been simmering since their grandfathers ended their olive oil business partnership. When a local judge decides to resolve the land dispute by awarding it to the winner of the town’s upcoming olive oil competition, it only serves to further fan the flames between the Cabella and Brandini families. But Nicole and Jake, trying to stay above the fray, begin finding common ground as they rekindle old feelings for one another. However, their budding romance is threatened as the big competition looms

As Christmas approaches, Amelia Hughes (Anderson), a career-focused Chicago app developer lacking in holiday spirit, returns to her small hometown of Christmas Creek to rediscover the meaning of Christmas. There, she reunites with her childhood best friend Mike (Huszar) and her estranged uncle Harry (Weber), whose mysterious rift with Amelia’s father divided her family during the holiday season when she was a child. As she engages in local holiday festivities – and begins falling for Mike – Amelia finds herself feeling the Christmas spirit and looking forward to Harry’s Christmas Eve tradition of delivering toys to needy children in his small, private airplane. Meanwhile, Harry begins repairing his damaged relationship with his ex-girlfriend Pamela (Kari Matchett). But as she helps prep Harry’s airplane for the toy delivery, a shocked Amelia learns her parents have unexpectedly shown up in town for the holiday and is crushed when her father and Harry resume their longstanding feud. On Christmas Eve, disappointed by her family’s continued fighting, Amelia prepares to return to Chicago and leave behind Christmas Creek and her budding romance with Mike along with it. But just as she’s about to leave, she feels a burst of inspiration that just might turn things around and help her finally restore family peace and embrace romance as love prepares to take flight for Christmas

With a record 36 holiday movies slated to premiere later this year on either Hallmark Channel or Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, ET can exclusively reveal details on two of those original Yuletide films, including one starring network favorite Alicia Witt.
The second holiday movie is Return to Christmas Creek, also for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, starring network newcomer Tori Anderson (Blindspot, No Tomorrow). Steven Weber, Kari Matchett and Stephen Huszar also star. Minus Huszar, who co-starred in 2017’s Magical Christmas Ornaments, this movie marks the cast’s holiday movie debuts.
Here’s the official logline:
“After being rejected and told that the new idea for her holiday app lacked the spirit of Christmas, young dot com CEO Amelia (Anderson) decides to return home to her Family Inn she grew up at in Christmas Creek. She is just in time for the anniversary of the Fly By Santa event that her family arranges. Her uncle (Weber) is a charter pilot who flies over the town dressed as Santa each Christmas Eve to deliver presents to under-served children in neighboring communities. Amelia was his co-pilot until her family moved away after her father and uncle had a quarrel that split the family apart. Years later, Amelia agrees to revisit the Family Inn where she heals old wounds and reconnects with the family, life and love she left behind in this festive holiday town.”
