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. When Hallmark fans love a movie, they always ask Hallmark for a sequel.  It will be interesting to see if Hallmark produces one because Todt released a follow-up novel in 2020 called A Maple Valley Wedding , which is set one year later.  Erica is in love, she's come to faith in Jesus, but then her ex shows up and sends her on a downward spiral.

On August 20, 2022, GAC rebranded as Great American Family.   

Fans are flocking to the network to enjoy clean, family-friendly entertainment.  Many have been anxious for their favorite movies to be released to DVD, and to date, six original Christmas movies from 2021 are now available.

Much Ado About Christmas

Susie Abromeit and Torrance Coombs star in this beautifully staged love story between a charitable, wealthy heiress pretending to be ordinary, and a hopeless romantic who learns her secret when pitching an ad campaign to her mother.  Haley's motive for the nondisclosure is her desire to be loved for herself, not her money, but Claud feels betrayed by her lack of trust and honesty. Cleverly written by Michael and Janeen Damian as a homage to Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, this movie will sweep you away with Christmas spirit!

A Kindhearted Christmas

Cameron Mathison has won the hearts of millions of fans who remember him from Hallmark's Home & Family and other lighthearted romances.  Mathison plays opposite Jennie Garth in this movie about the power of anonymous generosity.  A businesswoman quietly meets the needs of several members of the community, but when a journalist latches onto the story, she worries she'll be exposed.  

A Christmas Miracle for Daisy

Jill Wagner never disappoints because she can always create chemistry with any co-star, in this case, Nick Bateman.  Wagner plays Whitney, an interior designer with a job that makes her uncomfortable--she's tasked with redesigning a landmark home for the new owner, who just happens to be her ex-boyfriend.  Connor has adopted his goddaughter, Daisy, and Daisy wants nothing more than a mom for Christmas to complete their family.  

Royally Wrapped for Christmas

Royal movies are always a huge hit, and this one is no different!  Jen Lilley stars opposite Brendan Fehr in this story about a New York director of an international charity organization vying for a new position that would allow her to oversee the entire world-wide operation.  She must travel to the Kingdom of Veronia and go through an arduous process with her competitors before the royal family makes their pick, and she falls in love with the prince along the way.

Christmas Is You

Becca Tobin and Matthew MacCaull join hearts and voices in this movie about two people who parted ways after high school to pursue musical careers but find each other again.  Now, Tyler is a famous popstar and Emma is an assistant at a record company who needs to sign him to her label.  While she juggles saving the town's annual Christmas caroling celebration, she and Tyler rekindle their feelings for each other, but when he discovers her true motive for being in town, it could ruin everything.

Jingle Bell Princess

Merritt Patterson and Trevor Donovan fans will be enchanted by this love story of a princess who gets stranded in a small town and is taken into the Cutler home until the airport reopens so she can catch a flight home.  While Princess Amelia tries to act ordinary, she is obviously quite sophisticated, and the more time she and Sam spend together, the more they move toward happily-ever-after!
