Storyline

Plus sized and 30 years old, LEXIE IVY is a feisty Bed and Breakfast owner who desperately needs a date to her sisters wedding. In small town Nova Scotia, thats no easy task, especially when the most eligible bachelor is JOSS, the rough handyman fixing her roof. When ADRIAN, a handsome and charming guest, arrives and seems to take an interest in Lexie, she thinks all her problems are solved. But she misreads the situation and is soon reeling, believing her romantic dream has slipped away, maybe forever. After a series of hilarious mishaps and a reality check or two, Lexie opens her heart and eyes to see that love may be a lot closer than she thought. Written by Anonymous

Nova Scotia Holiday
5 May 2018 | by kristyekinneySee all my reviews

I didn't realize where this was filmed until halfway through, although it has the laid-back, friendly stench of Canada all over it from the get go. This literally made me fall in love with Nova Scotia, a place I've never been but plan to visit very soon. Cute, witty rom-com with a non-traditional lead actress and charming supporting cast. This is a movie you watch when you're wrapped up in a blanket with several glasses of your favorite grocery store wine. If the Handmaid's Tale doesn't convince you to love Canada, this movie certainly will. Melissa Bergland is a damn delight and I now follow her on social media. Watch this with a slice of blueberry cream cake in your wet t-shirt.
