Author Debbie Macomber will stop by to discuss the nest season of Cedar Cove and her past Christmas Movies! Perhaps, she'll give us a little scoop on her upcoming Christmas Movie, "Mr. Miracle", too! Let's hope!

And, fans (or Hearties) of "When Calls the Heart" will be most excited to see actress Erin Krakow, who will talk about her upcoming Hallmark Christmas Movie "Cookie Cutter Christmas" and hopefully WCTH will be mentioned, too!
