Storyline

Widowed, successful Californian sports journalist King is a great catch. His pride and joy, son David, suddenly says he's giving up baseball, and hence his scholarship. Actually he's leaving college, aspiring to go to arts school. King finds out through his lover, hearts columnist Peyton McGruder. She refuses to commit to marriage, rather concentrating on trying to catch up after finding Christine, the daughter she gave up as fickle young mother. A reader's letter inviting her to exchange stories on unconditional passion and true love sets Peyton thinking, just when King gets a dream job offer in New York. Written by KGF Vissers

Two love stories woven together
25 September 2017 | by Jackbv123See all my reviews

I never got to the point where I cared that much about Peyton and King. Perhaps it would have helped if I'd seen the previous story in the series. As is, I kind of shivered when they kissed, like kids do when they go "Ick" over mom and dad.

The story of Eve, Billy and Ben was a little more interesting, but it didn't just grab me either.

The acting and production were good. Actually the story wasn't bad either, it just didn't grab me.
