Running out of transportation - and financial means, when her car breaks down in a Rockies town, former Boston chef Reese Gilmore accepts a diner cook's job at least until she can afford the spare parts which may takes weeks to arrive anyway. She resist the owner's womanizing son, handsome romantic ranch-hand Lohario 'Lo', but gets on kissing terms with grumpy recluse author and former city reporter Brody. She needs help to and after reporting to sheriff Rick Marsden she vaguely saw an apparent murder. No woman's corps is found, and her own psychiatric past is revealed. Written by
I thought Lifetime did a decent job adapting this fantastic novel into a movie. But come on, Heather Locklear? Isn't she a little old for the leading role (and the leading man)? I really enjoyed the Joanie character, but I would have liked to see more of Mac Drubber and Linda-gail. The setting of this film was superb, I loved all the scenic views. But again, I found myself wishing for more. I felt like this film was lacking the relationship between the characters. We probably could have seen more of the "crazy" side of Reece.
I was able to watch the whole movie, but the casting was pretty poor. Hopefully the next Nora Roberts film will be better.
