Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family. But even as Katie begins to fall in love, she struggles with the dark secret that still haunts and terrifies her . . . a past that set her on a fearful, shattering journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis of Southport. With Jo's empathic and stubborn support, Katie eventually realizes that she must choose between a life of transient safety and one of riskier rewards . . . and ... Written by
During the opening credits, the bus that Katie is on travels along the Blue Ridge parkway adjacent to Grandfather mountain. This scenic byway is actually closed to all commercial traffic, including, and especially passenger buses. See more »
When Katie arrives in Southport, the bus number is 199. You will see this when she turns to see the bus is leaving. It is also shown on the top right at the back of the bus as it pulls away from the gas station.
When Gavin reviews the security footage and believes he recognizes her, the bus number is listed as 1994. See more »
Josh Duhamel was awesome in this movie. He played a sweet sensible guy that was perfect for Julianne Hough. This movie had a great plot with good romance combined with a mystery and drama. It was worth every penny I spent on valentines day. The final 10 minutes was probably my favorite part. It had a big twist that got me and has stuck with me since i saw it. The writing was excellent as was the directing. It was one of the better romance movies I have seen in a while. It was a perfect valentine movie. When I went I really didn't think that.
If you are looking for a romantic drama to spend with you wife/husband look no further than Safe Haven.
