Soon, she quickly finds herself immersed in her brother’s effort to save the Graff Hotel. This local destination was recently purchased by tech tycoon Joel Sheenan (Murray) and his associate, Ray Dixon (Michael Brown, Degrassi: Next Class).

The town of Forest Ridge, Montana is split on Joel’s decision to turn the once quaint hotel into an upscale property for tourists. To protect the hotel’s charm and her brother’s place of employment, Taylor goes on a search to find a significant historical event that will qualify the hotel for landmark status and prevent the City Council from issuing permits for its renovation.

With the clock ticking, Taylor seizes on a photograph that has the potential to verify the property’s historical value while also providing an invaluable piece of personal history to the hotel’s new owner.

In this new movie, Haley (Abromeit)  is beloved in her community of Winterstone. She is known for her acts of kindness. Those acts range from managing The Hope Chest to directing the children’s choir. Haley is also the daughter of one of Winterstone’s wealthiest residents Leona Lloyd (Jacinta Mulcahy, Brand New-U).

Despite Haley’s down-to-earth demeanor, she is financially set as Leona’s only heir. However, Haley fails to share this all-important information with her new love interest Claud (Coombs), an artsy, hopeless romantic.

Haley introduces herself to Claud as “Haley Logan.” Moreover, she tells him she was raised by a single, struggling mom. However, this small fib becomes a sticky complication.

Claud and his team just so happen to present an ad pitch to Leona. That pitch  includes a photo of Claud’s new girlfriend. Yes, Haley! Soon, secrets are revealed and relationships are ruffled.

Yet, Christmas is coming. This is the season of miracles.

Christmas Time Is Here Is Third Movie In GAC Lineup

The third movie that GAC has announced is Christmas Time Is Here. The premiere is on Saturday, November 13, at 8 p.m. Eastern. This movie stars Dewshane Williams, Rukiya Bernard, and Tom Pickett.

In this movie, a successful small-town realtor has her heart set on closing a big sale on a new resort for her client, Julian Parsons (Williams). Of course, she wants to do it just in time for Christmas.

There is only one hitch. No matter how many properties in Pine Valley Nia (Bernard) shows Julian, he keeps coming back to the one resort that isn’t for sale. He wants the one that belongs to Nia’s widower dad, Patrick (Pickett).

Patrick would like to sell the property and retire. However, it’s Nia who cannot let go of memories of an idyllic time in life when her mom was still alive and very much a part of the resort.

Julian realizes Nia’s reluctance to sell the property, but it may not matter. Subsequently, Julian’s impatient boss has come to Pine Valley. He is intent on getting the deal done before Christmas. At the risk of losing his job, Julian comes up with a magical plan for saving Nia’s family’s resort.

Although GAC has not made any more announcements about future programming, it may safely be assumed that there will be more original movies announced in the coming weeks. We already know that Jen Lilley will be starring in a new movie called Royally Wrapped Christmas. There may be more surprises coming!
