A new weekly feature to let you know what to watch each week in the romance and period drama genres. From TV to Streaming to Movie Releases and even Video On Demand.

The highlights for this week (that have me excited, at least) include the Netflix premiere of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, the release of the rom-com Book Club, the new Agatha Christie adaptation on Amazon Prime, and the season premiere of Chesapeake Shores on Hallmark!
