Storyline

Leah Townsend has always been a people pleaser. From her childhood as a senator's daughter to her career as a successful author, Leah goes out of her way to avoid conflict. So strong is her desire to keep the people around her happy that Leah is also too afraid to let her longtime boyfriend Edward Crouse know that their relationship is in a rut-the same date night, at the same restaurant, with the same food, week in and week out. And to top it all off, her second novel is proving much more difficult to write than the first. When Leah and Edward have a minor disagreement at Edward's faculty party (it barely qualifies as a spat) Edward enrolls her in a group conflict resolution class. There, she meets Cinco Dublin, a shock-jock radio host attending the class by court order. His family has a prickly past with the Townsends: Cinco Sr., a renowned journalist, went toe-to-toe with Senator Townsend when he was in office and the bad blood still remains. Leah bristles at Cinco's brashness and ... Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

This movie is a delight from beginning to end
19 December 2019 | by skpn123See all my reviews

What a fun and unique way to address the issue of managing conflict and people-pleasing while maintaining the Hallmark wholesomeness!!!! Holly Marie Combs and Ben Bass as leads have a really fun and understated romantic dynamic that you are left wishing for more. In addition the side characters are diverse and interesting in a light and wacky fashion.
