On May 21, the beautiful new original film “Romance to the Rescue,” starring Andrea Brooks and Marcus Rosner, premiered on the Hallmark Channel.

Kyra (Andrea Brooks) is goal-oriented in all aspects of her life, from professional to personal, and she has chart where she lists them all.

She subsequently meets Trevor (Nathan Witte), the new manager at the grocery store where Kyra works, and he seems to check off all the boxes when it comes to what she’s looking for in love.

When her well-meaning co-worker and friend Mark (Benjamin Charles Watson) tells dog-loving Trevor that Kyra has an agility-trained dog, she plays along.

Trevor tells her he can’t wait to see Kyra enter her dog in the upcoming agility contest the store is sponsoring, so Kyra is faced with a canine quandary. She quickly adopts an adorable dog, a Border Collie named Sam, from a local shelter but it soon becomes clear she needs help on the training front.

Although he’s hesitant at first, Kyra convinces Kevin (Marcus Rosner), the head of the shelter, to put his training skills to use and help her get Sam competition-ready.

As the two spend time together, not only does Sam begin to flourish at agility, but Kyra and Kevin start to fall for each other. But when Kevin learns why Kyra adopted Sam and needed to train him in a hurry, their budding romance hits a new obstacle
that may throw them off course.

Without giving too much away, tune in to see how this furry adventure will unfold.

Marcus Rosner, who delivers a subtle acting performance, is charming in the role of Kevin as well as the voice of reason, while Andrea Brooks showcases her bubbly personality as Kyra, and this marks her debut as a leading lady in a Hallmark movie.

In regard to Brooks, viewers can slightly recall Reese Witherspoon (“Election” and “Legally Blonde”) meets Melissa Joan Hart, and that ought to be taken as a compiment.

The Verdict

By the time the film is over, the viewer will want to adopt or purchase a Border Collie.
