Premieres Sunday, December 16 at 9 PM ET/PT
on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries
Ashley Newbrough (“Snowmance,” “You May Now Kill the Bride”) and Kristoffer Polaha (“Pearl in Paradise,” “Ballers”) star in “Small Town Christmas,” a new original premiering as part of the network’s annual “Miracles of Christmas” Programing Event. Nell (Newbrough) isn’t thrilled about reading Small Town Christmas at Springdale’s PaigeTurner Books, owned by her former New York co-worker Emmett (Polaha). Not only did he dazzle her with tales of his idyllic hometown, upon which she based her bestseller, but also he stood her up on their first date. In fact, Emmett quit his job and left his career with no explanation.
Seeing Emmett in a new light, Nell falls for him, until she learns he’s caved in with the rest of the locals to allow Brad to buy all the town’s property and upgrade it into a tourist destination. Unable to bear seeing the destruction of Springdale’s charm, Nell decides to leave, wondering if the man she’d romanticized in her book was just fiction all along.
