More Detail:

LOVE & WHERE TO FIND IT is a lighthearted romance on UPtv about Leena, an owner of an independent coffee shop, who becomes attracted to Jonah, the owner of a rival coffee shop.

Leena is a skilled baker who runs a local coffee shop where she can sell her tasty creations. Leena runs the business with the help of her best friend and roommate, Ava. While on her way to work, Leena bumps into a man named Jonah. They exchange names and expect never to see each other again.

Leena wants to help Ava get back to dating and convinces her to message a guy on a dating app. Leena says that she’s too focused on her business to date herself but agrees to help Ava. Ava is nervous because she doesn’t like to text. So, Leena agrees to message the guy on her behalf.

Meanwhile, Jonah’s best friend, Walker, is the guy who’s matched with Ava. Walker just got out of a long-term relationship and says he doesn’t know how to date through an app. Jonah agrees to message who he thinks is Ava on his friend’s behalf.

Business is going well for Leena until she learns that Vic’s Coffee, a major coffee chain, which she thinks is impersonal and hurts the community, moves in across the street from her store. Leena is even more surprised to find out that Jonah is the manager of this particular Vic’s.

Leena grows despondent over the fact that she has feelings for Jonah but that his business could force her store to close. At the very least, Leena is happy for Ava, because she thinks that Walker could be a perfect match for her friend.

Leena tries to organize some last-ditch efforts to save her store, but nothing she does seems to improve her situation. Jonah feels guilty about the negative effects that Vic’s is having on Leena and her store. He tries to offer some consolation, but Leena promptly refuses. However, as Leena texts Ava’s match on her behalf, she starts to wonder if this whole idea of love isn’t such a bad idea after all.

With her store in dire straits, Leena must choose whether to look past the circumstances and tensions between her and Jonah or continue to shut them out and lose both her store and her chance at true love.

Can Leena put aside her reservations and see the true Jonah?
