Enjoy a well-deserved break from your hectic life as you watch this refreshing movie with an excellent script, believable acting, panoramic views of beautiful scenery, boats on the water, and a love story that slowly simmers between a fussy award-winning New York chef and a talented interior designer aspiring to make partner in her prestigious Seattle firm. Dove approved for everyone in your family!
Hot-shot interior designer, Olivia Adler (Stephanie Bennett), has received yet another rave review from a client and her boss is delighted, and the partnership is officially hers if this pitch is successful. But Olivia is taking a break and is off to help her dad, Peter Adler (Harrison Coe), open his hotel in Crescent Lake for the summer season. It may be the last break she gets as she embarks on this new and exciting career journey.
But it’s not a good start when a phone call from her dad tells her he’s hired a high-profile chef, Dax Hunter (Jonathan Cherry), and she will have to work with him in redesigning the hotel.
Despite discovering Dax was let go from a high-end New York restaurant based on a bad review, she must work with him to create the kind of menu that will appeal to the guests and keep them coming back. And guess who’s coming to visit in a few days? The very food critic who gave Dax the bad review that cost him his New York job.
As they work together on making the menu appealing to the seaside population and redecorating, they are compromising, but meeting in the middle and having fun. They are enjoying the slow-down from their busy city life and sparks begin to fly.
As they work towards the grand opening of the Hotel Eldorado and the visit from renowned food critic, Walter Gregson (Damon Gregory), everything seems perfect until Olivia receives an ultimatum from her boss. Her proposal was a success, and she must show up now or the partnership is off! Filled with guilt for abandoning her dad and Dax, how will she react when she discovers the truth behind the firm’s offer? And Dax? A surprise is in store for Olivia as she finds where she is happiest, where her heart belongs, and with whom.
The Dove Take: “The thing we think we want and the thing we actually want, aren’t always the same thing.” A strong statement to ponder that will help you to recognize the real opportunities in life before it’s too late.
