What Is Hallmark’s Love In The Limelight About?
According to the Hallmark synopsis, ever since she was a teenager, Summer (Alexa PenaVega) was obsessed with the boy band the Mendez Boyz. She was especially devoted to Nick (Carlos PenaVega). Summer even sends him a letter.
Touched by the sweet letter, Nick decides this response should be more than a letter. He decides to call Summer. This starts a long-time friendship between the two.
Thankfully, there eventually is an opportunity for the two to meet in person. A little older, Summer now works at a local university, in human resources. Moreover, Nick is headed to her hometown of Salt Lake City. That is because his manager booked a gig there.
Now, this friendship has the ability to become a romance. But, Summer breaks things off. However, Summer’s Abuelita (Coll) – a hip grandma with a TikTok following – encourages her to follow her heart.
What will Summer do?
