“Love at the Shore” tells the story of author Jenna Thompson (Righetti), a mother of two young children whose summer vacation plans take a turn when the family arrives at their summer rental and meets the neighbor of the adjoining duplex: stubborn, unconventional, and attractive surfer Lucas McKinnon (Porte).
Jenna is neat and methodical, while Lucas rolls with and revels in life as it comes. As Lucas and Jenna spend more of the summer together, he finds a softer side of himself while dealing with Jenna and her children and Jenna realizes she may have been too quick to judge a book by its cover.
The film also co-stars “Happy the Dog,” Hallmark Channel’s two-year-old adopted Jack Russell Terrier mix. Happy the Dog is one of two rescued pets belonging to Crown Media Family Networks, and the animals are the heart of the company’s mission to showcase the joys shelter pets bring to our lives and to ending pet homelessness.
