“When Love Springs,” starring Rhiannon Fish and James O’Halloran, is an uplifting new romantic comedy on the Hallmark Channel.

This movie premiered on Saturday, May 6, and it is as part of the network’s annual “Spring into Love” programming event.

“When Love Springs” was directed by Jo-Anne Brechin from a script by Ansley Gordon. It will certainly put viewers in a vibrant spring spirit.

With a big promotion on the line, junior PR professional, Rory Richards (Rhiannon Fish), heads to a picturesque B&B on Lilac Lake with her parents and sister. The reason for the trip: a vow renewal at the spot her parents first met.

While there, Rory runs into the ex who broke her heart, Jason (Callan Colley). Panicked, Rory pulls the B&B’s future owner, Noah (James O’Halloran), onto her arm and pretends he is her new boyfriend, leaving him stunned.

Luckily for Rory, Noah has problems of his own. The B&B is failing, and his father is ready to sell the business.

To save his family legacy, Noah has invited a bigtime travel blogger to review the place, but he’s in no way ready to rebrand the B&B and recapture its homey charm.

With her extensive PR background, Rory suggests she lend them her expertise in exchange for Noah acting as her fake boyfriend to hide her impulsive lie. Rory and Noah work together to ready the B&B and between this fake couple, real sparks
begin to fly.

Without giving anything more away, “When Love Springs” is one adventure that is worth experiencing.

The Verdict

Overall, “When Love Springs” is a keeper. Rhiannon Fish is effervescent in the role of Rory Richards, while James O’Halloran delivers a triumphant performance as the suave Noah in the film. Both leads have solid chemistry together, and it shows. They both exude charisma and joy.

This is perhaps one of Rhiannon Fish’s greatest Hallmark roles thus far along with “A Picture of Her.” The screenplay is well-written, and it is worth checking out by the whole family.
