Thoughts on Love Sarah

ThoughtsLove Sarah is a story about three women that comes together to bring another one’s dream to life after her sudden death.. it is nice to see three women at different stages of their lives, with Clarissa in her early-20s just losing a mother, Isabella 39 who has lost a best friend and Mimi who has just how her daughter, showing us the different reactions, they are having for grief, with the death bringing them closer together for the memory. The idea of starting a business in London is always going to be difficult and finding the niche is what will make it a success. Where the story can fall shorter is with the romance side stories, both feeling like filler and with Clarissa being left out, doesn’t help make everything feeling complete. The different cakes being baked is a joy to watch and will leave you craving the first treat you can find. The performances from Shelley Conn, Shannon Tarbet and Celia Imrie are a joy to watch, as each brings the character they are playing to life in a natural feeling way.

Final Thoughts Love Sarah is a delightful little treat that will leave you with plenty of emotions as the door.
