Megan and Wendy roll right into Fall Harvest with this week’s brand new Hallmark Channel movie review of Roadhouse Romance. Callie (real-life singer, songwriter Lauren Alaina) returns home to Tennessee after deployment and meets Luke (Tyler Hynes) by accident, literally. Will their new friendship blossom into more, will Callie ever find Grandpa Tucker’s secret BBQ recipe and will the restaurant survive a low fall festival turn out? Lots of storylines with this one, friends.
