I guess Hallmark is Saving Their Best for Last
Interesting set up with a hoity-toity auction house representative up against a cleaning service owner hired to clean the house while she is trying to decorate. Lindy Booth is excellent as usual with her ethereal beauty up against a manly man ex-military owner of a cleaning service, Dirt-Force One. Cute name. There were lots of fascinating scenes involving appraising antiques and deciding what to auction and what to keep for the family. There were good backstories involving Lindy’s desire to buy out the owner of the independent auction house and up against a conglomerate, the owner’s estranged relationship with his famous singer daughter, manly man’s back-story and wish to expand his business, etc. And in addition, if that were not enough, a very nice secondary romance with Lindy’s best friend and caterer with Manly Man’s partner, a disabled veteran. Full marks, just not quite a “10” for me.
