A Heidelberg Holiday on Hallmark Channel
According to the official synopsis, Heidi Heidelberg (Mason) has always dreamed of visiting the prestigious Christmas Market in Heidelberg, Germany. This is the town her “Oma” came from and for whom Heidi was named. She had unsuccessfully tried for many years to be selected as a Christmas Market vendor. Finally, Heidi gets an unexpected opportunity after a vendor drops out of the market.
Once in Germany, Heidi befriends a local, talented woodworker, Lukas (Brossier). It turns out that Lukas is the son of the couple Heidi is renting a guest cottage from. Moreover, he has recently taken over his family’s handmade furniture shop.
Just as sparks ignite between Heidi and Lukas, and his finding of a connection to her heritage, she receives some disappointing news. This news could threaten to derail her one big chance at the market. However, with Lukas’ help, the setback helps Heidi uncover a special part of her family’s history that helps to unlock both her creativity and her heart.
