Sweet but familiar tale, lacks sparkle, my view, but still is acceptable for romance fans
12 July 2014 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Collin (Peter DeLuise) works for a mining company. His dad is the big boss, so sometimes Collin feels like a fly caught in a web. However, he does his darn best to please his father. Now, the boss has demanded that Collin travel to a remote area of Alabama and buy some land lucrative for mining. The only thing needed to complete the sale is a good impression from the company representative and nothing is to be said about the reasons for the acquisition. Rather deceptive, no? When Collin and his personal assistant arrive in the small town nearest to the land, both believe they have landed in the sticks. There are truck-taxis and no regard for expensive luggage. When the secretary goes to just buy some purified water at the general store, she finds there is none for sale. However, the outfit's owner wants to recommend a homemade, non-alcoholic tea that will do wonders. It makes the lady sick, whereupon another herbal remedy is advised. Before long, the PA goes back to New York. But, Collin goes to meet the land's owner, Ben Owen (Larry Mize) and is introduced to the daughter named TOMMY (Jamie Hendrix Collins, who also co-wrote the script) first. Mindful of his need to impress, Collin tries to charm this testy woman and fails. It seems she wanted to buy the land herself as a new location for a camp for disabled individuals she runs nearby. The money wasn't there. Yet, after a bad first start, Collin and Tommy meet often and like each other's looks and personalities. When she shows Collin the land, it is a very hilly area so beautiful with trees and grasslands that even he has doubts about this mission. Would Mr. Owen really sell this land if he knew what it was destined to become? What if the secret should be sprung? Also, what would his father say and do if Collin backed out of the deal? This is a sweet romance with lovely scenery. The cast is attractive and talented as well. Yet, the script seems very similar to other city-boy-meet-country-girl narratives and lacks an overall sparkle. On the plus side, it has a mild Christian theme that many viewers will welcome. All in all, it is certainly an acceptable film for romance fans. On the next rainy day, why not banish the gray skies with a view like this one?
