This is a lovely feel-good movie. Noah McManus (Jesse Metcalfe) has just successfully got himself a job as aide to Senator William Hayden (Art Hindle). Noah's job, before he applied for the job with the Senator, was as aide to the Mayor of Boston, who is panicking as she is coming up for re-election. Noah quits his job with the mayor so Noah's assistant has to run the Mayor's campaign - with constant telephone advice from Noah. With his new-found success, Noah pops the question to his long-time fiancée, planning to start their new life together in Washington, only to find that she has another lover. So, the wedding is off but Noah has ordered the ring to be delivered at a romantic inn in Fairfield Road, Harpswell, Cape Cod, so he has to go there to collect it. On the way, he hears that the Senator is to be charged with corruption and embezzlement - so that job is now out too. The proprietors of the inn, Sam and Lillian Peabody (Derek McGrath, Chick Reid) are very understanding and encourage young Noah to stay with them anyway, sans fiancée. That very evening there is a Preservation Society dinner at which the redevelopment of the town to include a huge new shopping mall comes up. Sam is against it and Noah gets drawn into the argument. Noah makes a convincing case to approve the development - but another opponent is local bookstore owner Hailey Caldwell (Natalie Lisinska) who is a confirmed environmentalist. Hailey shows Noah why she opposes the development by taking him to the local beauty spots. With the debate about the development hotting up and his increasing feelings for Hailey, Noah decides to stay - and has a new recipient for his engagement ring.

This made for TV, pretty much G-rated, Dove approved(12+), search for one's direction in life while finding romance Hallmark/Gaiam released flick provides enough charm and scenery to escape away for 90 minutes.

Jesse Metcalfe(I like "On the Other Line" better for laughs and romance) plays Noah, an up and coming Boston political strategist, whose life suddenly crashes both career-wise and relationship-wise. He ends up chasing a diamond ring up to scenic Cape Cod, off season, at the pretty little town of Harpswell. It's simple bucolic existence threatened by development.

He discovers love (or is he just on the rebound?) and begins to question his life's goals. Will he stay here in Harpswell or bail out to the big city and big dreams? Stay tuned.

It's all very much done before. The actors are fine and likable, mostly. The story is tepid, the romance gentle. Hallmark clean- they do imply infidelity; however, the kiddoes will be bored silly with this film. 3 1/2 stars.

Although the opening bedroom scene did not have nudity, the suggestion of nudity, the illicit relationship, and betrayal made it undesirable. I was not going to continue watching the movie, but the scene changed, and it became a far more wholesome movie to watch. I would have liked it without the opening scene which could have been done so much differently and made a good movie clean and enjoyable.

I like that this movie did not have half-dressed people with garbage mouths. A person of any age can enjoy this movie. I will recommend this movie to friends and family who also do not like movies with nudity and swearing. Nice storyline, too.

What can I say? I am a softie at heart and loved this endearing movie about the city boy who
comes to the small town life and makes a difference! It is a fun movie to watch with the family.

I saw this movie when it first came on Television and couldn't wait for it to come out on DVD and finally it has. Can't wait until it arrives in February

A very efficient campaign manager finds himself without a position, a fiancee, and a lack of direction. New friends, a new direction, and a new position are the fresh start in his life.

This was just what I expected--a sappy, predictable, feel-good movie. The acting and story were fine, and I will definitely watch it again.

Amazon's editorial review said of this movie that "After Noah McManus loses a high-powered political job and his fiancé all in one day, he escapes to the small New England town of Harpswell in Cape Cod. There he falls in love with a bookstore owner as well as the quaint town itself, giving him new purpose and a sense of belonging that he has been missing in life." IMDb classifies it as a drama, rather than a romantic comedy. Whatever it is, I enjoy feel-good movies that have happy endings and characters that you can relate to. Does that make me a "softie?" If so, so be it. I liked Jesse Metcalfe, Natalie Lisinska, Brandon Firla, Derek McGrath, and some of the other cast that had smaller parts. Although I don't watch much TV, I remember Firla and McGrath from another Hallmark movie "Daniel's Daughter." Although some reviewers had differing opinions, I thought this was a good movie, with a good cast and good acting. And did I object to Natalie Lisinska's big blue eyes, pretty face, and well-filled jeans? No way! :-D

Great for one time watch. It was just so boring at first. Not until 1/2 way through did movie get more interesting . Pretty predictable . Not at top of my list for favorites but will watch again on a rainy day if there is nothing better to watch!
