Trivia

Darcy is _starting_ to read the Anthony C. Parks book when she suddenly changes her mind after an inspiration from the snow fall outside her window. She gets a book on origami from her bookshelf and spends the rest of that evening making paper snowflakes! Ergo, the next night, is when she fatefully _resumes_ reading the book (in her much-too comfortable easy chair). See more »

Goofs

When Aiden is starting to learn about who he really is, Darcy, wearing a a black dress with white polka dots, leaves to "get a little fresh air". We hear the door open and close without her stopping. In the next shot, when Aiden opens the door to follow, Darcy is wearing a white coat and red scarf. See more »

Quotes

Darcy Archer: In the end, I didn't realize I was looking for anyone until he turned out to be everything that I was looking for. And now I know what I am missing.

In a nice part of Philadelphia, Darcy (Ali Lieber) rides a bike everyday to her dream job, a book saleslady at Chaucer's private book store. When she returns home to her nice apartment a few blocks away, she reads the night away. Oh, she goes out on dates from time to time, but if the gentleman doesn't read, Darcy is not interested. As she is dressing up the store for the holidays, Darcy spies a cute man, name unknown (Peter Porte) and his sheepdog Bailey and likes what she sees. Yet, he doesn't come in the store so she can't meet him. Some days later, Darcy is running late and hops on her bike for the fastest commute she can mount. Horrors! She actually runs over "cute guy" and knocks him to the ground. He goes into a coma! The ambulance takes him to a nearby hospital and Darcy knows she has to take care of the pooch in the interim. This complicates things with her landlady but they work out an arrangement. Soon, the new patient awakes from coma land, but doesn't remember his name or why he is there. Darcy comes to visit and she and the medical staff try to find the missing pieces in his memory. But, two problems arise for Darcy. One, the man may have a fiancée, oh no. Two, her manager is leaving and the store is looking for a replacement. Does Darcy have the daring to apply for the job? What another fine gift from my favorite company on the planet: HALLMARK! What would rom-com lovers do without the endless string of funny love stories Hallmark bestows on its fans? I shudder to think. Lieber is cute and funny while Porte, the lookalike to Jim Caviezel, is already a great favorite of this viewer and the world. What fun to see Philadelphia in a good light and animal lovers will fall hard for Bailey, too. In short, tie a string on your finger and remember to look for this one.
