Critical reception[edit]

Brian Lowry of Variety called the idea of the film "dreamy" and added, "Although the story is perhaps more naturally suited to Hallmark's traditional pre-Valentine's Day window, this is one of the more satisfying movies the storied franchise has delivered in some time."[3] Jackie Cooper of The Huffington Post stated, "This movie strikes just the right tone of romantic entertainment. It is semi-lightweight fare for [Hallmark Hall of Fame] but it is a story that entertains."[4]


In its original airing, the film was seen by 4.79 million viewers, with an adult 18-49 rating of 1.0.[5]
