This had nothing over and above the usual formula. I do appreciate Hallmark’s efforts towards more diversity which this one exemplifies. I found the heroine too glammed up to be relatable or realistic for a hardworking chef in a kitchen. When will Hallmark learn that tarting up their actresses like they were selling cosmetics in a department store is not the way to go. Unless that is their profession. Or on TV. Or a model. The romance was not front and center which was actually refreshing. But Ironically, I didn’t find the chemistry out of the ordinary considering the two leads are married in real life. The actress reminded me of Sandra Bullock but without her appeal and the actor reminded me of Topher Grace.
