Hallmark's "A Maple Valley Christmas" Is Based on a Book

A Maple Valley Christmas Plot Summary   A rancher has spent her whole life working the family farm with her mother and sister, but when a man arrives and disrupts her plans, she starts to question what she actually wants. Starring :  Peyton List and Andrew Walker Image:  Hallmark Media The Movie Is Based on a Book A Maple Valley Christmas is based on the 2018 novel by Jerry Todt, but the Hallmark flips the script.  In the book, Erica is the real estate agent tasked with convincing a maple syrup farmer to sell, but after spending time in the small town, she has to decide between love or becoming a partner in her firm.

Take This Trivia Quiz on Hallmark's "A Dickens of a Holiday"

  A Dickens of a Holiday Plot Summary To make the 100th anniversary of her hometown's Victorian festival a success, Cassie invites movie star and former high school classmate, Jake Dorsey, to play the role of Scrooge in the town's annual production of A Christmas Carol .  Starring :  Brooke D'Orsay and Kristoffer Polaha Image:  Crown Media Is Dickens, Ohio, a Real Place? Like many Hallmark movies, A Dickens of a Holiday was filmed in British Columbia despite the fictional location being Dickens, Ohio. Does such an Ohio town exist? Yes, but it's actually Cambridge, Ohio, not Dickens. Just like the movie, historic Cambridge transforms into a Victorian village from November 1 to December 31 in celebration of the old-world England of Charles Dickens.  In 2022, the event marks its 17th season.  The town has created over 180 lifelike figures and over 92 scenes which are on display for visitors to enjoy, and Cambridge brands itself as the "most unique holiday destinatio
