Erin Krakow of 'When Calls the Heart' Stars in Hallmark's 'Blind Date Book Club'

Ever been on a blind date? I have. Several times. If my experiences are an indicator, they don't go well 10 out of 10 times. Not so in Hallmark Channel's latest Spring into Love movie, Blind Date Book Club. The movie puts together two strangers who might otherwise never meet and like a Hallmark movie, things go swimmingly. Romance blossoms like a flower after an April rain.

Here's everything we know about Blind Date Book Club, including a Parade exclusive sneak peek. Take a look.

What is Blind Date Book Club about?

Meg Tompkins (Erin Krakow) is torn between taking over her late mother’s bookstore and pursuing another career. At the bookstore, she starts a successful “blind date book club.” The idea is readers pick a book mysteriously wrapped in brown paper with only a few key descriptors on it; Meg then hosts interactive discussions where all the readers get to talk about Meg’s book of choice. Meanwhile, book author Graham Sterling (Robert Buckley) is given hard advice about his most recent manuscript. He hears an interview with Meg on the radio about her blind date book club and seeks her out to audition his new novel. Graham has been advised to avoid writing about a subject about which he knows nothing, which is also Meg’s recommendation. But against her better judgment, she agrees to having Graham’s book a part of the club. In spending time together, Meg and Graham begin to grow close, all while discovering each one's own true happiness.
