Heart of the Holidays Plot + Cast

Heart of the Holidays follows Sam Wallace (Vanessa Lengies), a former Wall Street worker. When her life falls apart, she decides to go back to her roots – returning to her hometown for Christmas. Sam comes in contact with her former flame, Noah (Corey Sevier) who now runs a local cafe.

When they reunite, the two join forces to put on an event at the food bank. As they work together, their feelings for one another are reignited. However, when Sam’s ex offers her a dream job back in New York City, she must decide whether she is going to return to the city or follow her heart.

Ahead of its premiere, the network has released a trailer for Heart of the Holidays, so be sure to check that out below:

Vanessa is excited about her debut on the Hallmark Channel. She posted this fun shot of herself decorating a Christmas tree on her Instagram. “Heart of The Holidays’ my loves! 9 days away. I want pj’s, I want your favourite/favorite hot drink, I want besties on FaceTime!!!” she captioned it.

Heart of the Holidays‘ may appear to be taking place right in the middle of winter with snow on the ground and the characters in winter coats. However, that wasn’t the case. This movie was filmed in the hot summer, August to be exact. Vanessa shared this behind the scenes photo from the set as they create fake snow to look so real.
