    Hope Melissa does more Hallmark movies. I enjoy hallmark movies and watch all year long.
    I hoped that Conner would be put away and end the relationship with Adam. He has been dead too many times, so why do you insist on brining him back. Since you have, I hope they go away and don’t come back. I thought Nick made her a better person but obviously I was outvoted on that.
    Melissa, you’re a good actress, I hope you get more movie contracts on Hallmark. The new actrors and actresses for 2019…….not the best I have seen on Hallmark and I have been watching for about 10 years.
