I finally found a winner
3 December 2018 | by nmartin-75575See all my reviews

After watching so many Hallmark and Lifetime movies so far this season, I FINALLY found a great one. I absolutely loved it and at the end found out it was based on a true story which makes it even better. I also loved all of the actors - casting was great. That's the problem with most of these movies - there's no chemistry between the lead actors so the story isn't even believable. Not the case with this one. Highly recommend it.
