More Detail:

Inspired by a true story, THE TOWN THAT CAME A-COURTIN’ is a romantic comedy.

Abby is a charming, down-to-earth, bestselling author. Her newest novel is doing well. Her fans love her. There is even one fan who follows her book tour from city to city.

The next stop Abby makes on her book signing tour is the quaint southern town of Bliss. Nearly the whole town of Bliss is glad to have Abby visit in hopes that the townspeople can get her to marry the town’s mayor, widower Spencer Alexander. Abby sees Spencer and thinks he could be the man of her dreams, but has doubts because she calls herself “unlucky at love.” Although there’s a mutual attraction, Spencer seems to be as unlucky as Abby and completely sabotages his own dates with acts of sheer clumsiness. He also holds onto the pain of his first marriage.

Despite the town’s best efforts to help the romance along, Abby and Spencer have a second disastrous date. Abby is about to move on to the next town on her tour, but Spencer tries once more to make amends. His effort doesn’t change Abby’s mind, and she leaves to meet with her assistant at a nearby eatery.

However, while driving, Aby recognizes a dog that’s been hit and takes it to the vet. As she leaves the vet, her crazy fan, who is named Walter, stops Abby and kidnaps her at gunpoint. He has a deranged idea that they’re going to be married. He takes her to a cabin he has out in the woods and does his best to make Abby “comfortable.” Meanwhile, Mayor Spencer has search parties looking for Abby everywhere.

THE TOWN THAT CAME A-COURTIN’ is not the UP TV network’s best. The acting is mixed, with some that is good and some over the top. Lauren Holly is too old as the romantic lead. The story is too convoluted and loses its way several times.

With only minor questionable elements, THE TOWN THAT CAME A-COURTIN’ has a strong Christian, moral worldview. The town preacher and the townspeople have prayer chains. They also make positive references to God. Finally, Abby’s character is honest, compassionate and humble. She treats other people with respect.

A light caution is advised for the scary, though not violent, kidnapping scene.
