Sabrina Longworth: Brian, darling, would you be very careful wrapping this vase for Lady Chasen?
Bryan Foxworth: It is such a lovely vase. You know, I really feel as though I were selling my own child. Which of course, I would if the price was right.

Romantic cute idea with a suspense thriller twist.
23 October 2004 | by (Baltimroe, Marylend) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie so much, I have carried it around in my head for 15 years, ever since I saw it. The music was great. It was really appropriate for the story. The twist was so unexpected. It was a shock that made the movie unforgettable for me. I was expecting a straight forward romance type movie. I love romance. Stephanie Powers was fantastic. She made the movie truly memorable. I don't know if can purchase a copy of it but I am going to try so that I can watch it as many times as I want.

Loved it!
