Hallmark Channel’s Romance to the Rescue

In the movie, Brooks plays Kyra, a goal-oriented woman who knows what she’s looking for in her career and her love life. When a new manager named Trevor (Witte) joins the staff at the grocery store where she works, she becomes convinced he is “the one.” A well-meaning friend finds out that Trevor is an animal lover and tells him that Kyra trains agility dogs. He becomes fascinated and encourages her to participate in an agility contest the store is sponsoring. There’s just one problem: Kyra’s friend made the whole thing up. Kyra knows next to nothing about dogs, and she certainly isn’t a trainer.

In an attempt to keep up the cover story, Kyra adopts a dog from a local shelter. But when her attempts to train the dog backfire, she turns to the head of the shelter, Kevin (played by Rosner), for help.

The more time she spends with Kevin, the more confused Kyra becomes. If Trevor is “the one,” why is she having so much fun with Kevin?

Brooks promoted the movie on Instagram. She posted a photo with director Heather Hawthorn-Doyle and a stuffed stand-in dog they used during filming.

“Words can’t begin to describe how much I ADORE working with director extraordinaire @hhdtvis!” she wrote. “Here we are with our ‘love puppy’ stand-in!”
