This should be a good-enough movie for yet another sleepless early morning. I've seen enough Hallmark movies to know what to expect, so I tuned in. When I open a can of Pringles, I know I'm getting some good chips; they're easy eating if there's nothing better around but nothing special. I feel the same about Hallmark movies: ok viewing if here's nothing better to watch. I have seen most of the suspense series and expected the same.
But this movie isn't even close to the run-of-the-mill Hallmark. Watching Jewel, I realized she didn't get this part by auditioning and, sure enough, she's an exec producer. Everyone else does a good job, but Jewel is a singer and too successful there to bother with acting till she's had enough lessons to be able to do a good job. Very disappointing, as I have enjoyed her music.
I'll skip further installments in this franchise.
