Returning to the small screen is Marc Blucas in this charming return-to-a-hometown sweetheart of a romance. Despite its primary seasonal setting, Season for Love is a romance you can enjoy any time of the year.
Season for Love (2018) Hallmark Review
Coming home for Tyler Dawson (Autumn Reeser) is a chance to relax and renew. Her life went in a direction she didn’t expect, and now as a divorced mother, she knows this is the kind of trip she and her daughter need. What she doesn’t expect to find is her mother’s restaurant in a state of failure.
The small Texas town is also abuzz with the return of Corey Turner (Blucas). Not only is Corey Tyler’s ex, he’s also a world-famous author with more than one cook book to his name. No matter where he goes, it’s always Texas that is home to Corey. With a BBQ cook-off and an unexpected reunion between the two, Tyler is about to learn the importance of community, and love.
Though this has a summer time setting, any time I can see a new Hallmark (which is pretty much every weekend if one is in the mood), I’m game. Prior to seeing this one, Season for Love is one I was most excited for. The promotional TV spots only added to my curiosity. Here’s what I thought.

Ever since seeing him in First Daughter Marc Blucas has been a favorite actor. Unfortunately, aside from this, I didn’t see him in much. This is why once he started to appear on Hallmark Channel, I was glad to see him in more leading man roles. Suffice to say, each of the films I’ve seen him in, are among my favorites. Then there’s Autumn Reeser, who is always a fan favorite; she and Blucas have a pleasant chemistry that’s easy to root for. I also like the opportunity the script gives the two to work together.
No matter the season, this romantic-comedy is a fun watch. Its title may put you more in mind of a Christmas movie, but whether there is snow on the ground or (as is the reality) beautiful days with sunshine, this one charms. There’s a fun carnival sequence that is all cheery thanks to its bright colors and of course, an almost-romantic moment. Plus, I admire the writer’s so much for backing away from the usual dramatic-break-up moment in the final 30 minutes! In some films, I say, go for this trope. But where it’s now absent, once it would crop up in every single film.
As is true (and applies to) of any Hallmark original, Season for Love is a delightful little romance.Marc Blucas returns to #Hallmark Channel in a 'summer time' #romance. Season for Love Review – A Summer Nights Romance Click To Tweet
