PLOT:

Storyline via Hallmark: Brian and Jenny are engaged and preparing for the grand opening of their bed and breakfast. But when a big storm hits Bucks County, all their plans end up sopping wet! With funds running low and time running out, Brian agrees to go back to Wall Street to make quick cash, while Jenny scrambles to keep the opening on track.

More... When Jenny and Brian inherited a quaint bed and breakfast called Emily’s Inn the last thing they expected was to fall in love, especially since they are complete opposites. She’s an easygoing, caterer from Connecticut with a touch for conjuring up delicious dishes while he’s a hard-driving, Wall Street type with a knack for wheeling and dealing. Still, their chemistry is undeniable so they move to rural Pennsylvania to remodel their inn and eventually get married. But after a big storm proves the inn’s roof needs repair and their bills start to pile up, Brian jumps at the offer to do a few deals on Wall Street. Soon, he’s spending more time commuting on the train than with Jenny. Although romance is budding everywhere with the guests at Emily’s Inn, it’s fading fast between the inn’s proprietors.

  1. Oh, I hope this will live up to All of My Heart!! I love that movie!

    1. I feel exactly the same way! But, I'm feeling pretty hopeful we'll love it, too!

    2. Yeah I was so very hopeful myself but I think they made a few mistakes they changed the entire house in the movie and even though they said they did Renovations they couldn't have changed the entire building cuz it was a two-story Farmhouse now this looks more like a ranch style house and so I was kind of disappointed with how they change some of the Dynamics of the movie

      Delete
    3. I absolutely loved the first one and everything about it but after watching the second one I was a little disappointed. They made certain changes that I don't know if they thought that we would not notice or what but they changed the entire aspects of the property and the house. One of the things that made it so Charming was the fact that it was an old farm house now it is more of a ranch style house and even the town is different... So some of those aspects I was disappointed with cuz I thought that played into the charm of the movie but I absolutely love both those characters

    4. I noticed the house in the previews. They even changed the goats. The first one was great the charters seemed to show more feelings. This one was also great. But the charters seem to be old married couples already set in there. I do love they left it open for another one as there was no wedding yet. So lets hope we see a wedding soon

    5. I was terribly disappointed with the sequel. The house was a major character in the first one - not just that it was a totally different style of house, but it doesn't look like it belongs in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, it isn't the green they had to compromise on, the railing he nearly killed himself fixing isn't there, the inside is totally different - no creaky stairs, no portrait of Emily, the quaint interior is gone. Ugh. Another important character was Gabby. Dalmatians are born white and acquire spots. Goats don't. Not just the twins, but even Gabby acquired spots. Not so cute. The porch swing they fell in love on is now in the middle of the yard! It was very confusing having her running back and forth between kitchens. How did she have time to bake? And take care of the Inn? The story did not do the characters justice. He would have been more frank with her about his situation and would have shared his concerns about their financial situation more. They needed more time alone on the porch swing hashing things out so that they were not so stressed. The characters sort of fell apart in this sequel and I felt so let down after looking forward to this for so long.

  2. Net, I can't tell you how many times I've watched "All Of My Heart" and loving it more and more each time I view it!! Brennan and Lacey are perfect together and I can't wait for "Inn Love" I didn't see Ed Asner's name in the list of cast members; sure hope he's in this one too.

    1. So true!!! "All of My Heart" is just one of those movies you can't ever watch enough! Right? Lacey and Brennan just light up the screen together!!!

      And, yes, Ed Asner is back! That is him pictured with Brennan & Lacey above. IMDB didn't have his name listed, but he is definitely reprising his role. I added his name above with his character's name!

      Thank you for sharing, Linda!!! :)

  3. All of My Heart is among my favorite non-Christmas Hallmark movies, so I am really looking forward to this sequel! I was wondering what the plot was going to be for this one -- I was keeping my fingers crossed that it wouldn't be lame -- and I think they came up with a really good one!

    I'm glad to see Ed Asner is back for this movie (at least, I assume that's him in the pictures), but I'm surprised that he is not listed among the cast members.

    1. It is definitely one of those movies that is well-loved by many! "All of my Heart" has certainly captured many hearts since it first aired on Valentine's Day in 2015! Mine, too!

      As for Ed Asner... yes, that is him pictured above - he has returned for the sequel!!!

  5. "All of my Heart" is one of my Hallmark favorites! Can't wait to see the sequel! Brennan & Lacy are perfect together! I noticed in the pictures there are more baby goats too! How can you not just love these movies!

    1. Oh, I know... too cute!!! Love that the "kids" are back, too!!! I heard Lacey say they had to re-cast them from the last movie (too big now!), so I wonder if they are portraying Gabby, Lucy, & Ricky! Hope so! :)

    2. I'm thinking Gabby had more "kids"! Fred & Ethel to join Lucy & Ricky!☺

  6. Hands down, my favorite Hallmark movie is All Of My Heart! I am looking forward to the sequel-I always thought since the first movie premiered that the storyline would be perfect for a series especially with the well rounded cast. Maybe the sequel is the start of more to come!

  7. Yay so glad Ed Asner is back with everyone! I was wondering since I also saw his name missing from IMDB. Thank you so much for adding him, Net!

    Also excited to see Tommy and Casey back as well. I really hope they get together this time around! :-D

    1. I second your Yay, Rae!!! I can't hardly believe, either, how many of the regular cast members are returning in this! Amazing!

      Aside from the various on-going Hallmark mystery series, it's pretty rare to have so many from one cast come back like this!

      Plus, others returning are... Alice the neighbor (Barbara Pollard) and Harry (Patrick Sabongui), Brian's Wall Street buddy. (He's not on IMDB's cast list, either, but you can spot him in the last movie picture above, behind the vase of sunflowers!)

      Delete
    2. Oh yes! That is Harry! I wondered if he was coming back as well. :-D I'm glad Alice is back too. I think I spotted her in the mini promo teaser on tv. So exciting!

      Delete
    3. You and me both, Rae. With so much romancing gong on, I was hoping that Tommy and Casey would get together, as well. They seemed perfect for each other. In the first one, Casey was complaining about no eligible, good-looking men around. What? There's Tommy! I was ready for them to get together this time around, but he falls for a STRANGER. I guess she and Harry were making eyes at each other at the end, but how did Casey miss Tommy, and vise versa. The blogger and Harry would have been a better match.

  8. Did they think we wouldn't notice its a compmetely different house than in the original movie, goats are different as well

    1. The original All Of My Heart farmhouse wasn't available, unfortunately, due to it already being previously booked by another company for filming.

      My friend Kerry, who blogs about Hallmark movie locations, shared this bit of news on her site- here: https://www.ivesceneitonhallmark.com/film-location-glance-heart-2/.

      I, too, just loved the original house! The entire story of the first movie was based around IT. Owning IT. Restoring IT. Jenny and Brian came together because of IT! Everything was about that house! I agree... it's a big loss to not have it return for the sequel.

      As for the goats, Lacey Chabert shared during a recent interview on Hallmark's Home & Family that the goats were re-cast for younger ones.

    1. Yes, unfortunately, the inn is different for the All of My Heart sequel. The farmhouse was already previously booked by another filming company. Too bad, huh? I know we are all so attached to that beautiful place and the love story that came - because of it!

  13. I love this movie and I am so excited! But why is the inn different??? I can’t find any information as to why.... I loved the old house. They act like it’s the same house musical plumbing but the house is nowhere similar to the old one

    1. It seems they were so lucky to have the original cast return, except for the beautiful farmhouse! You think, oh maybe one of the actors or actresses might be previously booked on another project, but in this case, the house was already booked by another filming company during their course of filming. It's too bad, really, because that old beautiful farmhouse really added to the charm of the story. So unfortunate.

    1. Linda... I, too, just adore the original "green" All of My Heart farmhouse. Unfortunately, the beautiful home was already previously booked by another filming company and could not be used for the sequel.

      Brian and Jenny's love story is still amazing and something special, but... I, too, missed the unique charm and country setting of the original farmhouse.

    2. Hey, Net, I guess we have another Linda, LOL!! I, too loved the old house but also liked the renovations and "new look" of the one in "Inn Love"!! I loved this movie and between Brennan's comedic, quirky, antics and Lacey's wholesome sweetness, we have a couple made in Heaven. The one thing missing was the wedding!!?? Are we going to see another sequel? Oh, I hope so!!

    3. Yes, and it's such a lovely name! I am happy to have you both here!!!

      So glad to hear how much you enjoyed the sequel movie! I 100% agree - Brennan was above and beyond fantastically wonderful with all his quirkiness & Lacey was as sweet, as ever! That ending... (in my opinion) seemed like a big opening for a potential 3rd movie! I haven't heard anything, yet, but let's hope June Wedding!!! :)

  20. Just love the hallmark channel- not a movie we're missed. The original movie was perfect since we also live in bucks county & fall is the best location. We too were disappointed in the different inn's. It was one of the features them made that house a home to a charming inn. I wouldn't waited another year for filming to begin when house was available. But thanks to Lacey & Brennan
    They made you fall in love all over again
    Hope they due a Christmas movie there. -- Judy

  21. Does anyone know where I can find the soundtrack for the movie?

  22. The writers missed a chance when they didn't get Tommy and Casey together. They seemed a perfect match. Having Tommy fall for an out-of-town blogger, all the while overlooking Casey and vice versa, just didn't fit. It was like a match waiting to happen, and then it didn't.

  23. The house and town are different. They had to add the fact that it had been remodeled into the story but why wasn't the roof fixed when they did the remodel? Goats are different, and obviously the town has more than just a general store and coffee shop in the sequel. I think you have to look past all the changes because I think they did a good job dealing with the relationship itself. I think this one actually deals more realistically than most of the Hallmark movies where people fall in love after 2 days.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I must be in the minority in thinking this sequel was like Groundhog Day: same plot (Jenny and the inn vs. big money in NYC), same ending (engagement). I, too, was puzzled by them trying to pass off the house as the same one. Also, I have never been to a B and B that serves breakfast when you arrive. You spend a night, then they serve you breakfast. It was odd.

  29. I did read about the first old farmhouse being rented out for another movie. Was dissapointed that it was not the same house or goats but the movie was still pretty good. Wish they would have gotten married at the end. Was wondering if the baby in the movie belongs to Lacey.

    1. Yes, that was her!!! Lacey shared via Twitter, while tweeting during the movie - that, indeed, that was her precious little baby girl, Julia... the one Brennan gives a high-five to at the festival! So cute! I only wish they would've shown her just a bit closer.

      Glad you enjoyed the movie, Cindy! (I, too, missed the original house, but so enjoyed Lacey and Brennan!) Thanks so much for sharing!!! :)

  30. The original movie was one of my favorites, but the house was the focal point of the movie. It brought them together, and they painted it green together! Also, you can't tell me that Hallmark couldn't find two white kids rather than black and white goats. The town was also very different. Hallmark's sequel didn't feel like a sequel. They should've waited until the house and location was available and recast goats that were the same color. The differences are very distracting to an audience and takes away from the story.

I hope that there is a sequel to this one with all of the original cast so we can see Jenny and Brian's wedding and their beginning married life. I am a huge fan of All of My Heart and All of My Heart:Inn Love. It would be awesome to add a third movie to this!!!!

  34. Well this movie was disappointing.They told the same story over again of the big city life versus the country life and Brian having to make the choice to give up his job for her.I was hoping for a continued story not a re-hash of the first movie.Add the fact that they changed the house and Gabby and the kids changed colors and it hardly helps tell a "continuing" story.I love Hallmark movies but really this was poorly done.If they wanted to tell another story and they couldn't get the proper house they should have had them both go to the city and tell the story with Jenny really trying to understand Brian's work and maybe make a compromise for him instead of him giving up his job for her again.They should have made this movie with other people and at least it would have been believable.To do it with the backgrounds all changed spoiled a good opportunity to tell us more about the couple not just a re-do of the same story.

    1. I agree!!!! When did Jenny become a helpless whiner? Ahhh. I was so disappointed in this sequel!!! I really liked the first movie, but this new one was just blah. Where was the background music? Where was the fun? I kept telling myself, “I’ll scream if Brian has to give up a job he loves and is good at.” Well. My entire street probably heard me wailing away. Brian loved the work he did, and had a real talent for it, but of course because Jenny pouted about not being the center of his attention, he decided to quit...again. This does not bode well for their future together. When one person in a marriage is always giving and the other always taking, a happy future will pass them by. So disappointed!

      Delete
    2. I totally agree with you! I couldn't even finish the movie after their argument at the breakfast table in front of the guests. Everyone looked at them like it was Brian's fault, when she was the one that started the whole disagreement!
      I thought I was the only one who felt that Jenny was being unfair and selfish, but I'm glad I found this blog!
      In addition to the terrible relationship they created between Brian and Jenny, I was upset how they portrayed the out of town blogger "Denise" or whatever... she is basically strong and opinionated (coming off as incredibly stuck up and condescending), but just at the sight of a tall, good looking guy, she just is speechless and helpless. I don't know why Hallmark insists on making women weak, selfish, whiny, and annoying, while somehow trying to blame the male leads for the issues arising in their relationship... UGH.

  35. Relly love the twwo main actors,they are wonderful together, but like everyone is saying, different house, different goats, and even brian acted differently, he didn't joke much and wasn't romantic at all and poor jenny just looked so lost!

    1. The way you feel about Hallmark putting more emphasis on their Christmas movies than the “All of my Heart” sequel is the same way I feel about Hallmark putting more emphasis on their Christmas movies than Hallmark Drama. They put all this effort into creating a new channel, letting everyone know three months ago that it would start on October 1st. Well, it’s been a week since Hallmark Drama aired and no one has been able to watch it. Meanwhile, Hallmark has made sure that their Christmas line-up starts right on time, even devoting time on Home and Family and creating two preview specials to talk about the line-up. To me, this seems like poor planning on Hallmark’s part.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one that was somewhat disappointed in this sequel. Not all was bad but the story line made no sense. They needed money to keep the farm and open the Inn. As the story goes I think they were teetering on bankruptcy. So Brian gets a job offer he wasn't expecting...a miracle so to speak, but instead of the writers letting Jenny support him while he made a very long dailey commute to save their home she's gets all "doubtful" that he loves her??? When she took that ring off I'm going "Whoa lady...glad you're not marring a soldier! Hallmark dropped the ball on this one! As for the house...that took a lot away from the "feel" of the movie, couldn't they wait until that house was available or build one like it? I know they could have found some white goats!!

  41. Sadly I had been so excited as I impatiently waited for this sequel to only be a bit let down. I have read the reviews and understand about the goats and house but I just keep thinking that those are some of the KEY elements that made up parts of the story. ESPECIALLY the HOUSE. So, I am sure it was a production thing but I still as a viewer disagree. I think that production should have held off until you had all the right elements. goats without spots may have helped. But the house was a no brainer. And you can still have Tommy paired with someone else. Not sure I think Casey is the one but who knows. But, I really didn't like the story line at all. But, loved the cast . Only person missing was Chef. But since there was no wedding guess you didn't need him. Thought he might give her away. I wanted a wedding not a repeat of the first movie and it kind of felt like that. But, I love Brennan and Lacey together. More movies please!!!
