Kennedy Blaine, a Californian girl, inherits a ranch in the small town of Valentine in Nebraska. Before she sells the property, she decides to spend the summer in her house and learn more about her family.
Nicholas Boyd (Barry Watson) had a successful book but has struggled to write since then. He returns to his childhood home on San Juan Islands, Washington State after his uncle Charlie's death. He had a complicated relationship with his uncle blaming him for a tragedy. Nick is left with the local paper but the property is in debt. Banker Rebecca Fink and developer Graham Westlake offer to take it off his hands for $10k. Nick loses his teaching job. Uncle Charlie's lawyer Libby (Stefanie von Pfetten) tells him that Charlie had fought against the development. Roger Calhoun (Lorne Cardinal) keeps stealing a horse after losing his ranch to Westlake.
Barry Watson is a nice B-level lead. That's kind of this movie. There isn't much drama but it is nice. There is a little bit of quirky and a personal struggle that Watson is able to milk. The villains are not well drawn and played by lesser actors. Both Watson and Stefanie von Pfetten have a nice easy photogenic charm which keeps this from grinding to a halt.
