A keeper!
5 November 2016 | by ms-mani1See all my reviews

I love this show! Very heartwarming,great acting. I love the strength of each character. The aunt is an awesome, strong women, who holds the entire family together. Both sisters are awesome as well. Can't wait to see how the relationship between Charley and Remy unfolds! As well as Violet and Hollywood's relationship. This show definitely has my attention. I can hardly wait until the following week after watching current episode/s. I hope it's here to stay. Thanks Oprah! Although it's no surprise that everything you touch turns to gold. Wishing you much success on this and more to come! Keep it up! I'm staying tuned. Happy Holidays!
