Maggie (Nikki DeLoach), a successful entrepreneur, returns home for a will reading and discovers she's inherited half of her aunt's famed maple candy business. What she doesn't understand is why Aunt Dee's maple supplier, Dex (Andrew Walker), inherited the other half. Her return also coincides with the town's Sweet Autumn Fest, and through a series of letters Aunt Dee left, Maggie and Dex search for the reason behind her aunt's final wishes. As she and Dex grow closer, Maggie must decide if the life she built is the one she wants. Written by Anonymous

This is how it's done!
18 October 2020 | by MIssM19See all my reviews

In the last movie review Nikki DeLoach and Andrew Walker had I wrote this: "It's rare to see two leads working together again, three seems pretty impossible, but I really hope they get to do another movie together." It took them 3 years but it's finally here!

Ok, the plot is nothing we haven't seen. Both leads receive part of a inheritance: a candy shop, Maggie wants to expand the business but Dex doesn't. (He wants to keep production at a city level).

I had big expectations of this movie because of the leads, whom are among my favorites duos of Hallmark, and i'm happy to tell you these expectations were fullfiled! You can tell these two are good friends because they have amazing chemistry. The characters have a funny banter. We have a good secondary cast as well. Kudos to the set designers because the Autumn vibes made me happy. I'm even happy about how the managed what I call the "pre-ending problem", and while I don't quite excuse Maggie's decision at least they didn't behave like children. I'm already wishing for a fourth movie.

A match made in heaven (literally).
