In the TV movie Love by Chance, Claire Michaels is a successful pastry chef who spends most of her time working at her new restaurant Gilded Sweets. She says she doesn’t have time to date until “by chance” she meets a charming doctor name Eric. Claire should be happy, right? Wrong. When she discovers that it was her mother Helen who set them up, Claire feels betrayed and puts an end to the promising romance. Ah, the power of a bitter mother/daughter relationship.
