A Stolen Life – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Thirteen years ago, Tamara tried helplessly to stop a man from kidnapping her daughter Elizabeth. Even though she tried, the kidnapper got away with her only child. And with the depression and pain of losing their child, Tamara’s marriage fell apart. Today, Tamara gets a call from her childhood best friend that a girl in her math class named Aubrey looks just like Tamara did when she was 15. Mrs. Brent believes Aubrey is Elizabeth. When Mrs. Brent sees Aubrey crying after a math test, Mrs. Brent suggests she get a tutor. At first, Aubrey says no but Mrs. Brent calls Aubrey’s parents Richard and Beth. Richard doesn’t want to pay but Beth convinces him that Aubrey’s education is an investment. And just like that, Tamara is a step closer to getting Aubrey back. But, is Aubrey really Elizabeth? If so, will she accept Tamara?
This is a sweet movie but it’s just dull for Lifetime. Lifetime is about psycho murders, crazy exes, and killer kids. This movie didn’t have any real excitement. You can watch the first 30 minutes, fall asleep, and catch the last 20 minutes and not miss a thing. This movie belongs on HMM, not Lifetime.
I give it 2 out of 5 stars
And you need to start making some smarter choices – Richard
That’s not love. He’s always been that way towards me – Aubrey
You want me to kill him – Travis
I am so sorry he treats you so badly – Tamara

With Rita and Norman’s wedding around the corner, Shane and Oliver start to have thoughts of their own future. So when Shane finds a wedding dress in the lost letters auction, she grabs it before it can go on sale. When she tries it on, she is in love. However, it’s the letter in the pocket that throws her off. The letter is written from a mother to a daughter. She apologizes for not being able to attend the wedding and gives her the family history of the wedding dress. The POstables realize the package has only been at the facility a little while and they still may be able to find the recipient in time for her wedding. This search will lead them to strong women, family secrets, and stories that will touch millions. Meanwhile, Rita and Norman are facing the cold truth of Murphy’s Law and weddings. “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong”.
Bring out some tissues. This is one of the best POstables ever to hit the small screen. As Rita and Norman face issue after issue before their wedding, they handle the pressure with love and kindness. It truly expresses why they are perfect for each other. And while the story of the lost wedding dress will strike a chord with everyone who watches it, POstable fans will get the moment they have all been waiting for. Ugly green tie included.

The Nanny is Watching – Review
The Nanny is Watching – Lifetime – 2 hours and 3 minutes
No matter how hard Scott and Mara try, they just can’t keep their home in order. And this morning has been so trying that Mara almost lost a potential client. And to make matters worse, their home was broken into. Even though nobody was hurt, Mara and Scott believe they should have an alarm system. After hearing the couple squabble over functionality versus price, their nanny Rachel suggested a company. It’s the same company her mother uses. This company provides cameras, 24-hour surveillance, and a smart hub that integrated with their appliances. The next morning, the coffee is ready, the alarm works, the pool is clean, and the couple can relax. With so much time, they start to wonder if the need Rachel anymore. While on a walk to consider Rachel’s employment, Mara runs into Rachel’s mother and learns something disturbing.
It doesn’t take long to see where this story is going after you hear about Scott and Mara’s family dynamic. A seasoned Lifetimer will get the “why” Rachel is doing it easily. However, it’s the “how” that will give you a moment of pause. How often do we trust the people who work for us with intimate details of our lives? As much as we know about protecting ourselves from attack, we let our guards down in the easiest way. A bright light in this movie is Scott. He is not the typical blind husband. He tries to warn Mara that Rachel’s trouble, but she believes Rachel. This isn’t the best Lifetime has to offer but it’s a great movie for a rainy day.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars

I know honey but she is a millennial and she can do it so much faster – Mara
You don’t get to hit me. You don’t get to yell at me. You don’t get to do anything to me – Rachel
