Beautifully teaches a lesson with a quirky, romantic typical Hallmark twist
3 August 2015 | by lexiereillySee all my reviews

It's an enchanting, quirky film about real life and real decision and relationships. Before you judge this movie, take in consideration of little girls who grew up watching Disney fairytale a their entire lives, hoping and dreaming that they would actually find their Prince Charming. Is he really going to ride up on a white horse? Of course not. These girls as they grow up realize that, but the idea of Prince Charming with all his bells and whistles still captures their thoughts. Love by the Book allows that fairytale to come to life in a completely different light: that is not about the romantic things a guy does, but his support and love to help you become a better person. We see Emma grow through the story as Eric helps her. And we also see Eric grow as well.

As Phil declared after Emma read her first blog post, "this one gets an A."
