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.
