Storyline

Young journalist Amy Peterson (Markle) is not as happy with her big city life as she'd hoped, and it's starting to show in her work. She's also not thrilled with her current boyfriend, Phil (Munro), a GQ-handsome businessman who doesn't quite click with her. When circulation at the Chicago Post starts to wane, Amy's editor sends her back to her hometown to write an article about growing up in her parents' (MacKechnie and Samuda) fireworks business. With the Fourth of July at hand, this human-interest story will be just what the Chicago Post needs. Amy arrives home to write her article, but is quickly derailed by her best friend, Sammie (Pesic), who enlists Amy to be the official planner of her upcoming Fourth of July wedding to - of all people - Amy's ex-boyfriend, Hank (Jacot). As Amy struggles to cater to Sammie's wedding demands and work on her newspaper assignment, her feelings for Hank start to resurface. Is Hank feeling the same way? Will their old flame rekindle as the time ... Written by Hallmark Channel

Better story than usual
28 September 2018 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

This Hallmark movie is more involving than usual.

Meghan Markle acts well and you can actually sympathise with her even though she breaks up the wedding of her best friend and former boyfriend. The drama at the end doesn't feel contrived as it is in the usual Hallmark romance.

It's fun to see Meghan act with the hindsight that she is now a member of the Royal Family.
