Official Selection:

Carly's always dreamed of owning a grilled cheese restaurant, and that dream is in jeopardy when her new landlord refuses to renew her lease. Now her landlord's dead after a very public confrontation with one of Carly's employees. 

This new series really reminds of the Bakeshop series by Ellie Alexander because of the way the cafe staff rally around each other, and how Carly interacts with the members of the Balsam Dell community. Carly's been away from the town for years, and I enjoyed watching her reestablish friendships and connections. - John
