This was sweet, a little lame. The acting is so so by Geary and good by Beecroft. If you like a Harliquin Romance, you like this one.

Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Here we have a herione who appears to be lovable but emotionally scarred [well at least a little timid].
Sara had been dumped by the banker [who, grin, is now married and the father of twins]. She runs a small victorian boarding house.
She is in the process of putting up the screens [from the roof, no less] and is talking to herself [mostly about her missing boarder]

She figures her boarder has returned [I think she wants her rent money?] and shoves into his room, only to be grabed and frightened by a strange man with a gun.

Ah yes, enter the handsome [and I mean really good looking, with dimples] bounty hunter, Flynn.

I don't remember who her friend was but she has a wacky interest in Sara finding a boy friend.
Well, Sara gets ahold of the sheriff to rescue her from this gun-man only to find out that the sheriff knows Flynn. Hilarious!

She invites herself along with Flynn's stake-out of her boarder and it just esculates from there.

Sara is no risk taker but gets involved with Flynn and his family [his car] which she almost wrecks. [I was a bit disappointed when she decides to go for him and climbs into bed still knowing he does not do commitments.]

On the whole I enjoyed this movie a third time around and definitely enjoyed the songs and David Beecroft's acting of the Flynn character. Very sensitive and emotional.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND this Harlequin Romance along with most of the others."
One of the Best of the Harlequin Series

"I really like this movie. It was obvious from the start that the worldly guy was going to fall in love with the small town girl. David Beecroft is dreamy and Cynthia Geary shines as the naive heroine. A must see for hopeless romantics!"
Crazy about this film!

"I think I've watched this film at least 20 times on WE. It is such a dear storyline. David Beecroft is a natural actor and he continues to impress me each time I view the movie. Geary is perfect for her role and they play each other beautifully! When the DVD came out I was thrilled and purchased it. I continue to watch it on WE when it is shown. I wish there could have been a sequel. My favorite movie!Judye Freeman"
