Love at Sunset Terrace: Plot
Living a busy life in Los Angeles, Sophie Carter felt burnt out from her corporate life, which didn’t turn out to be the creative outlet she intended. Her business partner Spencer advised her to take a vacation to have a change of scenery and to get a better perspective. For that, she chose the best place that came to her mind, a small lakeside town called Summerside. It was the place depicted on the painting drawn by her late Nana that she hung in her office as a loving reminder of her Nana.
To find the much-needed inspiration she needed in her life, Sophie took it as an adventure to visit all the places that her Nana cherished when she was there. On this ‘strictly no electronics or business talk’ trip, she chose an accommodation from Airbnb called Sunset Terrace. Sophie came to know that the accommodation was run by widower Michael and his quirky preteen daughter Kailey.
Discovering that before Michael’s wife Natalie passed away, the now quiet lodging of Sunset Terrace was once the emotional heart of the town of Summerside, Sophie took it as her personal mission to revitalize Sunset Terrace into its former glory. Sophie’s determination to make his daughter and him happy made Michael heartfelt, and slowly but surely, he was falling in love with her.
Things were the exact same for Sophie, as she herself couldn’t help but fall in love with Michael.
Now both of them needed to make some hard choices. Michael needed to decide if he was ready to accept someone else to fill the space in his heart left vacant by his late wife Natalie, and Sophie needed to decide if she was willing to give up all the things she fought hard to build in her life back in the city, for a life beside Michael and Kailey.
