๐Ÿ’•More to Love?๐Ÿ’• The Last Weekend in February has New TV Movies, a Mystery, and Marathons - SEE HERE:

Hello Movie Friends! If you're searching for new movies airing on TV this weekend, then search no further; I'll give you the scoop!

Hallmark has an all-new mystery Friday night and a new romantic-comedy on Saturday, while UPtv also has a new rom-com of their own (pictured above) on Sunday, The Soulmate Search.

Be sure to note, as Loveuary ends this weekend, the Hallmark Channel is taking a three-week break from new movie premieres during the height of March Madness. It's always been hard for networks to compete in ratings with basketball taking center court, but Hallmark hasn't completely conceded to defeat; instead of new premieres in their primetime Saturday night time slots in March, the network will instead air popular films from Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

And, as you are recording any of the new movies this weekend, you'll also want to be sure to set your DVR now for the Monday night TV premiere of Great American Family's new series: County Rescue. I'm already hearing such great feedback from those who have seen the first episode early. And for those of you who have Great American Pure Flix, the first episode drops on Friday, February 23rd.

See all of the details below...


Friday, February 23, 2024:

Storyline: Crime series actress Hadley Warner retires to a small town where she encounters her first real case. Using her TV crime knowledge, she teams up with Detective Caden to solve the case.

Premieres Friday, February 23, 2024
at 9pm/8c. on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries


Saturday, February 24, 2024:

Storyline: After the death of their father the Dashwoods' entire world changes drastically. While one sister is torn between two men the other is holding out hope for the man who has her heart.

Premieres Saturday, February 24, 2024
at 8pm/7c. on the Hallmark Channel


Sunday, February 25, 2024:

Storyline: When Lindsay gets the chance to sign up to the notoriously exclusive dating service Eternity, she clashes with Will, her first date. They mutually agree this dating service has been a complete bust and make a deal to get their money back.

Premieres Sunday, February 25, 2024
at 7pm/6c. on UPtv


Sunday, February 25, 2024:

It's no secret that on this Sunday, February 25th, we *Mark the 25th* with 10 months until Christmas!

If any of you plan to watch a Christmas movie this weekend, please be sure to share in comments below. There are three Christmas movies airing Friday night on the Hallmark Channel and one airing on Great American Family. See details in the programming notes below.

I'm personally hoping to catch on Friday night - The Royal Nanny (Hallmark Channel) and Twas the Text Before Christmas (Great American Family).

Then, to actually *Mark the 25th* on Sunday, I'll be watching my recording of The Christmas Secret, starring Bethany Joy Lenz, John Reardon, Susan Hogan, and Michael Hogan. I've loved this movie ever since the first moment I watched it. In fact, a dear friend who previously worked at Hallmark sent me a special DVD screener for this film before it premiered back in 2014 - 10 years ago! Wow! At that time, I did not have the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel, but after watching this, I knew I had to have it, especially if this was the sort of programming they were creating.

Every time I watch The Christmas Secret, I'm always moved to tears. It's such an emotionally powerful, uplifting, heartwarming story!

If you'd like to join in and *Mark the 25th* with us, please share your Christmas movie pick (or picks) in comments below.

Happy weekend, everyone!

My movie pick for this weekend is the UPtv movie, The Soulmate Search. I'm hoping this movie is just as cute as the poster! Plus, even though I wasn't exactly taken by Christmas at an Amish Bakery, I still found Alexandra Harris to be a delightful actress in it, and I'm looking forward to seeing her with Jonathan Stoddard, who was ever so much fun recently in Baked with a Kiss.

As for the new Hallmark mystery, I haven't made my mind up yet on watching this one. The promos just haven't captivated me, thus far. Plus, I'm not sure I'm game for yet another NEW Hallmark mystery that will surely be canceled before it's truly finished.

And while I'm typically interested in various film adaptations of Sense & Sensibility, I am rather disappointed that the Hallmark Channel has made this one historically inaccurate (much like the recent
Gilded Newport Mystery: Murder at the Breakers). History is what history is; whether we like it or not, that is completely irrelevant. We can't change it or rewrite it, as I feel they are attempting to do here. Unfortunately, this new Sense & Sensibility movie is not an accurate depiction of South West England, London, and Sussex, between 1792 and 1797. Even though this film is fictional, Jane Austen's works are conventionally known to be set in the Regency era, and this movie intentionally does not accurately reflect that time period.

If any of you plan to watch either one of these new Hallmark movies, I am curious to know your thoughts on them.

As for the movie classics airing this weekend, I'm always thrilled to see a Signed, Sealed, Delivered marathon in the schedule! In fact, the SSD line-up airing this Saturday on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries includes several of my personal favorite films from the series. Oh, who am I kidding? I love them all! By the way, you'll also find the exact SSD movie marathon that is airing this Saturday - repeated on Hallmark Family (formerly Hallmark Drama, by that time) on Easter Sunday!

Please note: I haven't pre-screened the movies listed above. If you'd like to post a review on whether a film is family-friendly, please share in the comments.

Blessings on your weekend,


"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; 
knock and the door will be opened to you. 
For everyone who asks receives; 
the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, 
the door will be opened."
~Matthew 7:7-8

Erin Krakow and Robert Buckley Star in "Blind Date Book Club" This April -- SEE HERE:

The Hallmark Channel will *Spring into Love* this April with Erin Krakow (When Calls the Heart) and Robert Buckley (Chesapeake Shores) in the all-new romantic comedy premiere, "Blind Date Book Club."

Storyline via Hallmark: A bookstore owner finds love and direction in life after agreeing to review a famous author’s new novel in her blind-date-with-a-book club.

I'm truly amazed at the turnaround for this movie, especially for the editing department, who must seamlessly piece together video footage, dialogue, background music, etc. The movie, "Blind Date Book Club," was just filmed from January 15th to February 2nd!

"Blind Date Book Club" will premiere on Saturday, April 6, 2024 at 8pm/7c., the eve before the premiere of the 11th Season of When Calls the Heart.

*Note: There are also more "Young Aurora Teagarden Mysteries" soon to be filmed in March, so it appears they are keeping those mysteries going. For me, they will never compare to the originals, starring Candace Cameron Bure. What are your thoughts on this and "Blind Date Book Club"? Please share in comments below.

Stay tuned for more programming coming in April!

Spring is right around the corner!
Have a Blessed Day!

๐ŸŒŸ Stream Great American Family Movies for Free and More ๐ŸŽฌ SEE HERE:

Great news! Great American Family continues to add FULL movies to their YouTube page that can be streamed for free - with stars like Lori Loughlin, Trevor Donovan, Jessica Lowndes, Daniel Lissing, Merritt Patterson, Maggie Lawson, Christopher Russell, Chad Michael Murray, and more!

Be sure to tell any of your friends or family who don't have GFAM, as this will give them a wonderful taste of what they are missing weekdays from 4pm - 10pm on this wonderful channel.

With February 25th coming up this weekend - making it 10 MONTHS 'til Christmas!!! - I thought this would be an excellent time to share the Great American Family Christmas movie selections currently available to stream, as well.

Plus, you'll find below four extra family-friendly Christmas movies that are available to stream easily and free through Freevee at Amazon. See the links below!

Great American Family:

A Harvest Homecoming | Starring Jessica Lowndes & Trevor Donovan

Fall Into Winter | Starring Lori Loughlin & James Tupper

Crown Prince of Christmas | Starring Cindy Busby & Jilon VanOver

Catering Christmas | Starring Merritt Patterson & Daniel Lissing

A Lot Like Christmas | Starring Maggie Lawson & Christopher Russell

Christmas On Windmill Way | Starring Chad Michael Murray & Christa Taylor Brown

Christmas Time is Here | Starring Rukiya Bernard & Dewshane Williams

A Brush with Christmas | Starring Jillian Murray & Joseph Cannata

12 Games of Christmas | Starring Felisha Cooper & Johnny Ramey


Plus, here are four family-friendly Christmas movies you can stream FREE from Reel One Entertainment via FreeVee (with ads) through Amazon...

Christmas by Candlelight | Starring Erin Agostino and Harmon Walsh

The Fabric of Christmas | Starring Ferelith Young and Harmon Walsh

Christmas Casanova | Starring Kalinka Petrie and Fuad Ahmed

Coupled up for Christmas | Sara Canning and Marcus Rosner


I hope you'll enjoy some of the movies featured here.

My personal picks from the Great American Family 9 movies available above are: A Lot Like Christmas, Fall into Winter, and Catering Christmas! In my opinion, those three movies are not to be missed in the GFAM film library, as all three are entertaining, wholesome, captivating, and most especially, heartwarming!

As for the Reel One Entertainment selections, I have seen all of these Christmas movies, as well, and my personal pick would have to be The Fabric of Christmas, as it is one with excellent chemistry between the leads - from friendship to love, and there is a more unique element to the story that truly touches the heart. However, if you are more in the mood for comedy, then I would suggest Coupled Up for Christmas. Mind you, there is the whole fake boyfriend/girlfriend trope, but it's still a cute movie, and Sara Canning and Marcus Rosner are such fun together!

Please note: I don't know how long these movies will be available to watch, so if something catches your eye, you may want to watch it soon, just in case they happen to disappear. Also, please know that random ads may appear during these streaming movies.

If you have any thoughts you'd like to share on any of these movies, please share in comments below.

Happy watching!

My Take on the New Movies...

An American in Austen...

Only two of the new Jane Austen-inspired movies have premiered, thus far, on the Hallmark Channel, and I'm already hearing some viewers say they are over this theme. While Paging Mr Darcy was well-liked by many, Love & Jane (from the reviews I've read) did not have the same fate. Nothing can quite compare to the Jane Austen originals, in my opinion, especially not a modern-day spin. Of course, some will like them, but they are not going to be everyone's cup of tea.

With the third Austen-infused Loveuary movie premiering this Saturday night, it should be interesting to see how well it is received. An American in Austen appears to be loosely based on the Lost in Austen British television series from 2008, which I must mention is TV-14. According to ratings, however, this new Hallmark movie is TV-G.

I'm also wondering if An American in Austen will have the same draw for viewers as the first two Loveuary movies- since the leads aren't well-known in the Hallmark movie world, except for Nicholas Bishop, who previously starred in Hallmark's A Paris Proposal. Even still, I'm sure many viewers will likely not know him by name or recognize him.

On a positive note, I've read some random reviews from those who watched An American in Austen early via streaming on Hallmark Movies Now, and they said they enjoyed it very much. I'm personally looking forward to giving the movie a try, as long as it ends up being truly family-friendly.

*UPDATE: An American in Austen is family-friendly, according to our friends, Abigail and Laura. (Thank you, lovely ladies!) See their reviews here and here!

Romance in Hawaii...

As for UPtv's new movie, Romance in Hawaii, this film has also been available to view on some streaming sources. In addition to premiering Sunday night on UPtv, it is currently available to watch via Freevee (free with ads).

A woman, whose name is Katie, left this positive movie review for Romance in Hawaii on Amazon: "I have lived in Hawaii and am a haole, so I could relate to Kelley Jakle's character. I too loved hula, took lessons, and wanted to fit in. My husband was raised on Oahu, and he loved this movie as well because it featured not only many wonderful locations and scenery on Oahu, but it also featured the Hawaiian culture. Cedric Jonathan and Kelley Jakle are two very talented people. They both can sing, act, and dance hula all extremely well. This movie is clean and appropriate for all ages. We ended up buying it so we can watch it often."

Please know that I personally have not seen Romance in Hawaii, but I found Katie's review to be encouraging, so I wanted to share it with all of you!

A Taste of Love...

And one more movie... the Hallmark Channel is giving us the bonus of a Monday Movie Premiere on President's Day with A Taste of Love! I'm hopeful this will be a delicious treat, and I think some will enjoy the reprieve from the Jane Austen-themed movies.


Please note: I haven't pre-screened the movies listed above. If you'd like to post a review on whether a film is family-friendly, please share in the comments.

Blessings on your Weekend,



Taste and see
that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one
who takes refuge in Him.

UPtv will *Bring the Spring* this March with new Romantic-Comedy Premieres...

Stay tuned for news on their Easter weekend programming, which is the last weekend in March.





Molly, a talented, scrupulous content creator, gets a surprise assignment to chronicle her newfound singlehood. But when she’s paired with Jackson-her polar opposite-will she learn to stand on her own two feet, or will love get in the way?

Movie Review:

๐ŸŒผ I've only seen The Single's Guidebook which I think was on Paramount +.

It's a good while ago but I can't remember anything unsavoury in it although don't take that as gospel.

It hasn't received very good reviews but I didn't think it was that bad - I quite like the two leads together although the connection wasn't there at times.

The lighting was quite dark and being ROE the background music was unnecessarily intrusive at times.

Nothing groundbreaking but fair enough for a one-time watch. ~Florence's rating 6

Through lessons in history, etiquette, fine dining and even Spanish, Angelica transforms Ramone into the king he is destined to be. And maybe he found his queen in the process.

County Rescue - Great American Family's First TV Series [Season 1 Episode Details]

Details below from Great American Media Press Release:

NEW YORK, NY – February 13, 2024 – Great American Media proudly announces its first Original Series, “County Rescue,” the much-anticipated faith and family action drama about EMTs and paramedics in personal and professional extremes, will make its worldwide debut on the company’s streaming platform, Great American Pure Flix beginning Friday, February 23 and feature new episodes every Friday for the series’ first season of five episodes.

Great American Family, the company’s premiere flagship linear network premieres episode one on Monday, February 26 (8 p.m. ET/PT), and will premiere a new episode every Monday for the five-week first season run. “County Rescue” tells the story of one EMT unit whose medical team saves lives while guiding themselves and each other through journeys of love, hope and faith.

The series features a remarkable ensemble cast led by Julia Reilly and Riley Hough alongside co-stars Percy Bell, Kristin Wollett, Brett Varvel, Stacey Patino, Tim Ross, Keller Fornes, Angel Luis, and Curtia Torbert. Music star Colton Dixon also guest stars.

“County Rescue’ is an inspirational, scripted series with a terrific ensemble cast that showcases the remarkable work of EMTs and first responders and the challenges they face daily. These are the everyday heroes who make communities across America great,” said Bill Abbott, President & CEO, Great American Media. “The series is about discovering oneself and who we are each meant to be while working alongside those who care about us. ‘County Rescue’ is an exemplary family friendly series, and we are extremely proud and excited to bring the quality, series every member of the family can watch together,” Abbott concluded.

County Rescue -Season One

Premiere Date: February 26, 2024

TV Network: Great American Family

Series details: In “County Rescue,” Dani (Reilly) and the other EMTs in training are courageous, everyday heroes. But with only one opening for three trainees, Dani’s faith in herself is tested each and every call. Dani believes her calling is to save lives. Now, she has to prove it.

Season One - Episode Details:

Episode 1 ∙ Pilot

Dani (Reilly) answers a personal calling to become an EMT at County Rescue where she meets Tim (Hough) who is also a new probationary. The pair meet Chief Scotty (Perez-Ross) who lets them know unexpected budget cuts will only allow him to hire one new EMT and that he will makes his decision at the end of the probationary period. The only other wrinkle is the Fire Chief’s son, Griffin (Fornes) is also a contender for the open job and is confident he will be the hire. At home, Dani seeks support from her family who have some skepticism she will stick with her calling.

Episode 2 ∙ Fall By Myself

Dani (Reilly) gets to know both other probationary EMTs and ends up making a grave mistake on her first shift. Tim (Hough) and Dani are committed to outworking Griffin (Fornes) so he will not get the job. After Dani gets to know Griffin better, her feelings toward him begin to change and he invites her to do something after work so they can get to know each other better. Duke (Bell) begins having nightmares and is keeping secrets about abusing alcohol at work while Marcos (Luis) tries to reassure Duke’s wife. No one on the team knows Chief Scotty is keeping a secret leaderboard to keep track of which rookie is in the lead for the open job.

Episode 3 ∙ Holding Out for a Hero

Dani (Reilly) accompanies Griffin (Fornes) to a club though she tells him she doesn’t want to get involved romantically due to the team’s rule of dating within the unit. Tim (Hough) finds out and wants to confront Dani and ends up finding her kissing Griffin instead. Duke’s (Bell) life is still spinning as he battles his PTSD and Tiffany (Tobert) finds a flask in his work duffel bag while doing laundry. Worried, Tiffany calls Marcos (Luis) for help. Andy (Brett Varvel) and Tim work a Colton Dixon concert that ends up having Tim be in the right place at the right time to be a hometown hero.

Episode 4 ∙ Stuck Between a Hero and a Griffin

Andy (Varvel) sees Marcos (Luis) in the parking lot outside the station and makes a serious accusation believing Marcos is seeing Tiffany (Torbert). Duke’s (Bell) drinking problems worsen and Tiffany decides to take the kids to her mom’s. Dani (Reilly) accidentally finds Chief Scotty’s (Perez-Ross) secret leaderboard tracking who is in front for the position, and she loses confidence she can clinch the full-time job. The chief is having trouble picking a candidate because they all possess the right stuff – in different ways. Chief Scotty also knows well the struggles of the career: how it affects faith, family, marriages, careers, and above all, exacerbates human foibles.

Episode 5 ∙ The Rescuer

Dani (Reilly) resigns from the station before her last shift, though Chief Scotty believes she will be good to her word and not quit before a decision is made. Receiving no support from her family, Dani asks Ashley (Kristin Wollett) to come over to talk heart-to-heart about Dani’s instincts to drop out of hard situations. Duke is MIA from his shift; now Chief Scotty has another difficult decision to make, but he is grateful Dani is there for her final shift. The team debates faith or fate as a call comes from the bar Duke frequents about a potential suicide attempt. They watch in awe as Dani takes over the tense situation. As Duke tells the team he is going on leave to get help, Chief Scotty also has news. A decision has been made as to who gets the job.

Meet The Stars of Great American Family's "County Rescue" in New Interview >>

There is an immediate spark between the pair until each returns home to discover Kade’s company views Nicole as a rival and threat and orders him to exploit the friendship for business gain. Work causes the pair to cross paths repeatedly until Nicole and Kade realize they have much more in common than love of travel.

*Note: Maria has shared a caution on this movie with this review...


❤️ Nicely's Love by Design has it's charming moments, with 2 cons: Female lead is living with her ex boyfriend at the start of the movie, and there is 1 uttering of the H word midway through the movie. Other then those, it's a slightly clean movie. (streaming on PlutoTV). –Maria

Whatever you watch or do this weekend- I hope you have a Super time!

Looks like there are plenty of great movie choices this weekend. Hopefully, you'll find something that you will love! All the new rom-coms look intriguing to me, so I'm going to watch Passport to Love on Great American Family and record the other two. Shae Robins and Mason D. Davis were wonderful together in Identical Love, and I'm looking forward to seeing them together again.

I adored Paging Mr. Darcy last week, so I'm hopeful the next Jane Austen-inspired Hallmark movie, Love & Jane, will also appeal to me.

Please note: I have not pre-screened the movies listed above. If you'd like to post a review on whether a film is family-friendly, please share in the comments.

Have a Wonderful Weekend, Everyone!

Much LOVE and
God's Blessings to You All! 


"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things."
~1 Corinthians 13:4-7
