What Is Hallmark’s Christmas At Castle Hart About?
According to the Hallmark press release, newly single and unemployed after losing a waitressing job just before Christmas, responsible Brooke Bennett (Chabert) is convinced by her impetuous sister Margot (Hardiman) to go on a holiday adventure.
They decide to fulfill their father’s lifelong wish and travel to Ireland in search of their Irish roots. When they arrive, Brooke meets Aiden Hart in the local pub and soon discovers that he’s, in fact, the Earl of Glaslough (Townsend).
Having recently returned after years abroad for his job as an architect, Aiden does not receive a warm welcome home from his sister, Siobhan (Spratt), who has been managing the financially troubled Castle Hart in his absence.
Less than two weeks before the castle is set to host the social event of the season, the person planning the event drops out and Siobhan is desperate to hire someone to take over.
Believing Brooke and Margot to be high-profile New York City event planners, Aiden makes introductions and they are hired to take over the prestigious evening. The trouble is that Margot has misled Siobhan and Aiden into believing that Brooke is Paige Monahan (Nikolaisen) – the very person who just fired them.
As Brooke works closely with Aiden on the event, she begins to fall for him but knows that once he learns the truth, she might lose him forever.

Paul wrote about his contribution on Instagram. “I had the good fortune to write on TWO movies for Hallmark this Christmas season. This began as a lovely script by Rick Garman and Bonnie Fairweather. The network wanted to take it in a slightly different direction and asked if I’d take a run at it. So I did. I think you’ll enjoy. Christmas at Castle Hart premieres Nov 27th at 8PM only on @hallmarkchannel #countdowntochristmas#hallmarkchristmasmovies.”
