Abby O'Brien Winters returns to Chesapeake Shores when she receives a panicked phone call from her younger sister Jess, who has renovated the charming Inn at Eagle Point. The Maryland town her father built has many sad memories and Abby, thanks to her demanding career, divorce and young daughters of nine and seven years of age, has not had time to spare. Saving the inn from foreclosure means dealing not only with her fractured family but also with Trace Riley, the man she left ten years ago. Trace initially poses an obstacle but becomes an unexpected ally and a second chance at finding love.
Hallmark seems to have finally learned something about show writing with its fourth original series. The pilot showed promise as the pacing was good, writing was engaging, characters were well formed and there was conflict! These are all huge improvements and if it remains this way, it will finally break Hallmark out of its recent original series slump. (Cedar Cove was canceled, the season finale of Good Witch was abysmal.) The pilot shows all the signs of a well done show. I only hope they continue down this path and have learned from their past mistakes and can sustain a show on real drama rather than the convoluted romantic slop they always lazily fall back on.
