Storyline

Seattle radio talk-show host Emma Silver inherits grandpa Walt's pumpkin farm in Valleyville. She didn't plan to respect his last will, which was to run the farm, but loses her job and is forced to accept hosting a new 'green' program. In order to keep it, she must pay off a $75,000 mortgage. To that end, she hopes to win the pumpkin growing contest using grandpa's winning seed line and cultivation log. Neighbor Seth Cullen, the town's handyman (and actually a Stanford engineering graduate), has a hard time convincing her they need to team up. Written by KGF Vissers

Just Cute - Nice time waster
24 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shannon Doherty is radio host Emma Silver who has inherited Grandpa Silver's farm - and it's mortgage. She moves into the farm house in the little country town and begins to sort out "what's next for Emma," meets the townsfolk and learns about the Giant Pumpkin raising contest. Romantic lead Kavan Smith (Seth)shows up PDQ. Handsome Stanford Grad Seth runs a fix-it shop and decided Emma's heart could use his kind of fixing.Plus, he wants to help her raise the prize-winning punkin:) Typical fish-out-of water jokes though the women of the town who take Doherty's character under their collective wing have some funny moments. If someone other than Shannon Doherty like Carla Guigino or another younger/more vulnerable actor had played Emma it would probably have been better. Shannon is just too long in the tooth for a role like this. As good as she was in Charmed she just doesn't play damsel in distress very well.
