The Shades of Love series came along at the time when most people were watching nighttime soaps like "Dallas" and "Dynasty" and the romantic fantasy business was in boom. The formula for the series was to cast well know male actors (mostly American) with much lesser known Canadian actresses in plots lines typical of most romance novels.
"The Garnet Princess" is no different. While I can't actually put my finger on it, there was something about this one, however, that I actually liked. Perhaps maybe it is because the actors appeared to take their participation seriously. I especially like Yvette Brind'amour as the grandmother. This story is charming and pleasant, unlike "Sincerely Violet" which I thought stupid.
If the series is ever resurrected it would be interesting to see this one again.
