A heartfelt performance by Amy Rubinate highlights the sweetness of this appealing romance. Rubinate’s velvety voice is perfectly suited for the charming protagonist, Lainie Heaven, the owner of Heavenly Confections Kitchen, who wins the hearts of widower Luke Avery and his adorable 3-year-old, Emma. Rubinate’s use of a Southern accent brings out the charm of Merritt, Alabama, and she effectively conveys the changing point of view through well-differentiated voices. Emma’s youth is portrayed with a high pitch that heightens her cute factor, making it easy to understand why Luke’s rough voice softens around his daughter and why Lainie falls for Emma even before she falls for Luke.
