Yes, it is another simple Hallmark made for TV romance themed film but Mrs. Shullivan and I are hunkering down during the Corona Virus 19 pandemic and we are a bit choosy about what we want to watch on TV. It was no surprise that we both enjoyed this simple little film as our own first trip together was to the beautiful country side of Ireland where the pubs are many and the food hearty and bountiful such as it was in this romantic themed made for TV film.
The two lead actors Merritt Patterson and Jack Turner certainly had feelings for each other but as in all realistic scenarios they had their own careers to follow and so they fell out of touch with one another through the subsequent years. We as all humans have a memory bank of both the good times and bad times we have experienced with some of our memories harder to forget than others. Such is the case with these two star crossed lovers Jenna Slade and Charlie O'Hanlon.
As life and time goes by, (and time stands still for no man nor woman), Jenna and Charlie have moved on, or so they thought until five years later they find themselves in the boutique hotel that Charlie's father owns and runs. Economics have not been good to the hotel or to the O'Hanlon's who have fallen on some recent hard times and Jenna takes it upon herself to help Charlie's father bring new life back into the hotel and maybe, just maybe rekindle some of the old feelings that Jenna and Charlie once shared in good times past.
As I am from Irish heritage I have a soft spot for any film surrounding the countryside of Ireland, and although actor Jack Turner's Irish accent left a lot to be desired the story is a favorable one, the romance rekindled and a happy ending in these troubled times (COVID 19) are always a blessing we all need.
I give this particular Hallmark made for TV romance a strong Irish blessing score of 8 out of 10.

Coinciding with she and her boyfriend Dave Jordan, an executive in the international division of the company getting engaged, Jenna gets her first overseas assignment: making a pitch to some potential investors in Dublin for Pugsley to take over a historic property in the city. Part of the reason for this assignment is that Jenna spent one year in an internship working at family owned and operated O'Hanlon's Inn in rural Dalkey outside of Dublin just prior to getting hired at Pugsley, and thus knows the Irish culture and how to frame the pitch to the Irish mentality. Part of Jenna's want to work in Ireland at the time was a family connection with her father Jack Slade, who has since passed, the two of them who fixed up some family property there. While in Ireland for this trip, Jenna plans to stop by ...
