A Veteran’s Christmas is premiering on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries as part of the network’s annual Miracles of Christmas Programing Event. Formerly in charge of the Search & Rescue K-9 Unit in Afghanistan, Captain Grace Garland (Mumford) receives an honorable discharge and returns stateside. Missing her Marine “family,” including Christmas, her white lab, Grace heads cross-country to Cincinnati for a new job, but her jeep breaks down and sends her into a snow bank.
As Grace and Joe spend time enjoying the Christmas festivities, their feelings for each other grow, and he begins to wonder if he should take the job of District Court Judge in Chicago as he’d planned. If he goes, Grace sees no reason to accept the sheriff’s offer to run the town’s Search & Rescue department. Accidentally overhearing Joe on the phone with his ex, Grace decides it’s time to leave and, broken-hearted, she boards a bus for Cincinnati…until Joe sets in motion a surprise that could make Grace stay in Rivers Crossing forever.
