This is the third dud, I believe in as many weeks, in Hallmark's Harvest Fest premieres. This does not bode well for future Hallmark Saturday nights. I only hope they put most of their concentration, quality-wise, into Countdown to Christmas.
Megan has a yes sir personality and her boss makes a totally unreasonable demand that she bail him out in 3 days for what he couldn't do in who knows how much time. She should have stood up to him and told him so because clearly whether she succeeded or not, she wasn't going to like it there. But she goes home intent to do his will and immediately starts saying yes to virtually everyone who asked for anything, most of which diverted her from her most important task. At times she didn't even seem to care that she had a deadline as she sat around in a waitress outfit chatting with the other waitress. Apparently she didn't even notice that her firms design destroyed the beautiful landscape it was building on. Megan had a good heart but was a total wimp. Basically the entire setup for this story was horrible, even worse than most romance movies which we expect and allow to have some unrealistic aspects.
Poor Andrew Walker. He was good. He tried to have chemistry with Sarah Morris and did to some degree. I frankly didn't notice whether Morris' acting was any good because I so much disrespected her character.
Of course the ending is totally unrealistic too, but it would be spoilers to discuss what I hated about it.
