What Is Hallmark’s Love In The Maldives About?
What do we know about the story of Love In The Maldives? According to IMDb, when visiting The Conrad Maldives, Rae Parker (Hudon), a travel writer with a hit monthly travel column, visits this world-class honeymoon destination, as a single.
However, she needs something for her readers, and she looks for something adventurous to partake in for her popular column. One caveat is that Rae is afraid of open water. It does not help that her hotel floats in the middle of open water.
After some unsuccessful attempts at trying to get into the water, she speaks to The Conrad’s Guest Experience Expert, Jared Joseph (Manley). Turns out, he has the sort of adventure that Rae wants to partake in.
Could there be buried treasure nearby? Or is that treasure right in front of her?
