Plot of A Date With Danger

As it often goes in the Lifetime genre of thrillers, the protagonist is Nikki, a single mom who moves to a new town for a fresh start. It doesn’t take long before she finds a friend and a romantic interest.

Her new friend is Liz, a fellow single mother and a local. She gives Nikki a job at her boutique, helps her around town, and gives sound advice. Nikki also finds herself striving to be as independent and wise as Liz.

Meanwhile, Nikki has a budding romance with a café owner in town named Gavin. But Liz warns her that Gavin is bad news.

Nikki notices the glaring red flags about Gavin when Liz points them out. A disturbed Nikki then distances herself from him and pauses their relationship.

Things take a turn when Liz goes missing. Gavin’s suspicious behavior sets off alarms for Nikki, who has to solve this mystery.

Who is telling Nikki the truth? Who is threatening the lives of everyone Nikki holds dear? And how does Nikki get to the bottom of her friend’s disappearance? Watch A Date with Danger to find out.
