What Is Hallmark’s A Second Chance At Love About?

According to Deadline, on the surface, Alicia (August) and Arnold’s (Joseph) marriage is picture-perfect. However, there is something amiss.

Arnold is ready to grow their family, but subconsciously Alicia is hesitant to the idea. Rather than face the problem head-on, Alicia, the self-proclaimed “love doctor,” immerses herself in a distraction.

She is now obsessed with her divorced parents Jack (La Salle) and Brenda’s (Reuben) dating affairs. Alicia does this by setting them each up on a blind date dating app.
