From the opening of the movie, the conclusion was already known. Hallmark did a reasonable job with it.
I was annoyed with Lily's boss at the begining of the show and with Lily's obsession with her dead husband. She struck me as being quite self absorbed.
It carried over to her arrival in Ireland, culminating in running William off the road. The plot thickens when William caught up with her at the post. His anger turning into shock when he saw her.
William did an excellent job of expressing his shock.. She struck me as being completely disengaged with her costars. As the movie progressed, she became a bit more connected when they began the quest to find out how a portrait of her showed up at the museum and who sent it. While tracking down the person who sent the portrait, we were treated to the beauty of Ireland.
This was a satisfying movie and a lot more calm than many Hallmark movies. It was a nice departure from the usual. Using actual Irish actors was soothing. I have always loved an Irish accent. Not a heart throbber, but sweet.

Action / Drama / Romance
Lily, an art museum curator in the US, has not dated since her husband Greg, the love of her life, passed away three years ago, although not for lack of trying by her friends and colleagues, including her boss Michelle, to get her into the dating world. Michelle thinks it's fate that a portrait donated to the museum from an unknown source and by an unknown artist is the exact likeness of Lily, Michelle believing the artist meant to be the next love of Lily's life. Only tracking the shipment being sent from small town Inistioge, Ireland, Michelle sends Lily there to find her "soulmate", the portrait's artist, Lily conversely only agreeing to go to uncover the mystery of the painting's source. There, Lily meets brother and sister William and Saoirse who are the fourth generation from their family to run the local post office. Helping Lily, they are only able to narrow that specific shipment being sent by someone with the ubiquitous name J. O'Brien. As Lily and William go on a trek through the region to question all the possible J. O'Briens William and Saoirse could find, Lily and William start to fall for each other, something that Lily may not want to admit. However, both William and Saoirse know more about the artist and the origins of the likeness of Lily in the painting than they are willing to admit to Lily, that knowledge which could threaten Lily and William's burgeoning romance.
