Additionally, both men are doctors (family practitioner in "Sweet Magnolias," dentist in "Reba") who leave their wives for a subordinate coworker (nurse and dental hygienist respectively). And the affairs in both shows result in a pregnancy. See more »

I actually enjoyed it
24 May 2020 | by de1234See all my reviews

This show is extremely predictable. From the first few minutes of episode 1, I could already tell most of what would happen the rest of the season, its almost as if I were there while they were filming lol... HOWEVER, I actually enjoyed it a lot. It was very refreshing and very different from Netflix's new releases. It was wholesome, the setting was great along with the fashion as well. The kid actors are really good and I loved the relationship between the three ladies. I'm really hoping it gets renewed for a second season.

If you've seen one Hallmark/Lifetime movie, you'll probably be able to predict almost every scene lol but if you're like me and don't really care about that and are just looking for something refreshing and relaxing, then this is the show for you!

Only con with this show (well not only but major con, the others I can let go of) is, while it gives me a lot of Gilmore Girls vibes(which I actually do love), most of the actors are like walking inspirational quotes and sometimes, I just want to yell at them to speak to each other like normal human beings. It was a little annoying at times.
