The first two films showed promise and the prospect of happiness for Erin (Miranda), and in time, Ian (Niall Matter). However, each film brought some tense moments and times of uncertainty for Miranda. This movie is likely to bring the same sort of tension to viewers.

In the first movie, although Miranda managed to track down her family on her unknown father's side, she faced difficult choices in Carlton Heath, a small Vermont town. Ian was there for her, to help her try and discover the truth, but the truth is not always easy to find.

In the second movie, "Engaging Father Christmas," she anticipated the engagement to Ian, but on the family front, things got a bit awkward. In fact, Miranda was asked by the matriarch of the Whitcomb family to keep her relationship and that of her parents a secret. Nevertheless, it looked to be a wonderful Christmas until she got a text message that threatened her happiness.

When asked about their vows, Miranda said they had written their own and they were all done. Ian looked a bit shocked, and he later gets some writers block getting them done and dusted. Meanwhile, Erin isn't too happy with the suggestion that the venue should change to the Whitcomb home instead of their cottage.

Parade.com takes the story a bit further. Their expanded synopsis of the plot, says that "Miranda’s wedding plans are quickly complicated when a mysterious visitor who claims to have ties to her late parents reaches out to her just days before her wedding." This can't be easy for Miranda.
