But her world is turned upside down when work sends her to her hometown in Tennessee where she must convince an old, stubborn restaurant owner to sell his property. There is just one problem - the restaurant is now owned by her ex-boyfriend, Clay, who claims he will never sell. He resists her negotiations every step of the way, and all the while sparks fly.

Re: Bait and Switch

Why do you care where the movie was filmed? How could that possibly matter? Do you represent some Tennessee Chamber of Commerc or something? As if you could tell the difference unless you were actually a resident of the city it was filmed in. In that case, Hooray for You! You're almost famous... adjacent. Quit your whining about location and enjoy an enjoyable film. And if you don't like remakes with familiar themes and actors, write something all new and never before seen by audiences anywhere. Oh, and then act in your grand production yourself. I'm sure you can pull it off, Shakespeare (Oh, wait. He wasn't completely original, either). And if you can't manage any of that, just change the channel. Nobody wants to hear your "expert" opinion about a simple made for TV romantic movie. The rest of us weren't expect an Academy Award film. Just an enjoyable story with enjoyable actors. And that's exactly what we got.
