Part of me is embarrassed over how excited I am for this movie and the other part of me knows that there is no reason to be embarrassed. My love for Hallmark movies and Ireland – well, these are good things.
And As Luck Would Have It, sounds absolutely adorable.
Lindsey Johnson (Swisher) is sent to a coastal town in Ireland for work, tasked with acquiring a valuable piece of land to develop into a hotel resort. The only catch is the 14th century castle sitting on it is managed by the town council – they won’t sell to anyone who wants to tear it down, much less to a stranger who doesn’t understand the town. Most emphatic about this is Brennan O’Brien (Leech), a handsome councilman and local whiskey distiller. While Lindsey is there, the town’s annual, world-renowned matchmaking festival filled with local activities is taking place. Seeing this as a chance to prove her investment to the town – and Brennan – Lindsey signs up even though the last thing she’s looking for is a love connection. After non-stop days of soda-bread baking, knitting classes and a trip to the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher, Lindsey finds herself falling for the town as well as for Brennan. Now committed to saving the castle, her career and a new chance at love, Lindsey will need more than just a little luck.
