Joy- A romance novelist, visiting the Inn to try to break her writer’s block.

Carol– a war photographer, home for the holidays, tired of big city life.

Jackson – a veterinarian who owns two Jack Russell terriers

Merry– in town to search out the perfect Christmas Tree for the big Christmas celebration in the big city. A real estate lawyer businessperson with no time for love.

Noelle- owner of the oldest Christmas ornament boutique in town, charged with helping Kris quit his job and become a full-time Santa. Filled with the Christmas Spirit.

Sven- the secret Prince of Broxtenburg, which is another tiny aristocratic country in Europe that no one has ever heard of. Shocker, he’s also rich as heck. 

Rita- movie star filming a movie in Hopewood Falls but pretending to be an ordinary girl.

Bridgette– the red-headed best friend of all the women. Why not.

Jimmy- (Small walk-on role) the ex-boyfriend of Holly, and also plays the ex-boyfriends of every other woman, ‘cause why not.
