Starting Up Love


When workaholic Jillian gets a note that her long-lost, wealthy uncle has passed away, she finds he’s left her his beautiful mountainside cabin – and a family she never knew existed! Jillian’s plan is to sell it as soon as possible and move on, but when she meets handsome caretaker Liam, he makes her an offer she can’t refuse. Sparks fly as they work together to transform the cabin into a holiday resort. When business doesn’t go quite as planned, Jillian needs to make a life-changing decision.

Dove Review

**This review is contributed by Super Channel—a channel dedicated to providing integrity and accountability in today’s entertainment.

Chances are, no one will care this movie is a little typical of the scenario, “city girl meets country boy,” where the realization hits that a breakneck busy city lifestyle is no longer all that appealing. It’s a delightful, fast-paced movie that will hold your interest to the very end. Anna Hutchinson, who plays Jillian, is well-cast and is a portrayal of integrity as her character evolves into appreciating and respecting Liam’s (Rocky Myers) loyalty to family.

Poor Jillian. As hard as she has worked and as successful as she is as a venture capitalist, the Board passes her up for partner because she has no start-ups from scratch. She is devastated and unbelieving. She lives for the company, raises profits. How could they do this to her?

When Uncle Robert, Jillian’s very rich and eccentric relative, passes away and leaves her his mountain cabin in Vermont, she heads out with the intention of selling — only to discover that she is a co-owner and must deal with Liam, who has no intention of selling and wants to make it into a B&B. A lightbulb goes off when an unexpected buyer appears and Jillian sees the potential for that start-up-from-scratch opportunity.

But when the buyer talks about bulldozing the property and Jillian’s boss tells her they are promoting someone else, she is forced to re-evaluate what’s really important and must make a life-changing decision: Will she give up everything for the love she never saw coming and for family she’s just discovered?

The movie is Dove-approved for All Ages.

The Dove Take:

What a life-changing surprise to discover a kind and accommodating family you never knew existed and to find a love you never thought was possible … all in a quaint little town you never would consider living in.
