What happens when the owner of a Connecticut farmhouse exchanges their home with a London financier’s luxe apartment? Maybe some romance?

What Is Lifetime’s A Christmas Exchange About?

According to TVLine, this Lifetime Christmas movie is about Molly Cooper (Vandervoort), who is looking for something real during the holiday season. She just lost her grandmother. Molly is also an editor without a job, as the local paper just closed down. She is finding it hard to reinvent herself as she has lost her way.

So, acting on a childhood dream, Molly does a house swap. She heads to the “most romantic city in the world,” London. She does this by swapping her Connecticut farmhouse for a very posh apartment.

London Financier Patrick Kingston (Francks) has had his own pivot. He is a workaholic that just suffered something pretty serious. Patrick needs to reinvent his life. A house swap is his chance to finally write that thriller he has in his head.

Molly and Patrick continue to email each other, and they each find their exchanges quite enjoyable. Molly thinks she has found her English guy, when she takes on an editing job, but that doesn’t work out. But, what about Patrick? What would happen if they both met in real life?

A Christmas Exchange premieres on Saturday, December 19, at 8 p.m. Eastern.
