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.

About This Blog


Hi, and thanks for visiting my blog!

Like you, I adore Hallmark & Great American Family Christmas movies.  It doesn't matter that each one follows the usual format--two people meet, one is lacking the Christmas spirit, they fall in love, big kiss at the end.

It also doesn't matter that the majority of the movies feature a sleigh, cookie baking, town Christmas tree lighting, ice skating, gingerbread houses, or hot chocolate.

With so many "cookie cutter" movies, with only the title seeming to change, why do we love them so much?

Hallmark & GAF Christmas movies give us hope.  No matter what challenges come your way, a happy ending is available to all of us.

Hallmark & GAF Christmas movies are adult fairy tales.  For those of us who have already married our Prince Charming (or Princess, if you're a guy), these movies help us recapture the thrill of young love.  If you haven't found your match yet, these movies will inspire you to keep following your dreams, trusting your time to find love will soon come.

Hallmark & GAF Christmas movies are festive.  Not only do these movies spotlight all the things we love about Christmas--the lights, decorations, snow, faith, family, music, and gift-giving--they also include themes about putting others first, deliberate generosity, volunteerism, and so much more.

Hallmark & GAF movies relieve stress.  Whether you've had a hard day at work, an argument with a friend, a crying infant, or nothing has seemed to go right all day, you can put on your fuzzy socks, cover up with a cozy blanket, pour a glass of wine, and forget all your troubles as you get caught up in a story about finding love during the holidays.

Whether you DVR them to watch all year or invest in the DVDs, you can keep the Christmas spirit alive in your own heart no matter what month it is.

I hope you enjoy the fun and discussion sparked in this blog--please feel welcome to participate!
