"White Hot", a Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Original Movie - Starring John Schneider, Shenae Grimes-Beech, and Sean Faris


Movie: White Hot

Network: Hallmark Movies & Mysteries

Original Air Date: April 17, 2016


Sean Faris ... Beck Merchant
Shenae Grimes-Beech ... Sayre Hoyle
John Schneider ... Huff Hoyle
Jeremy Guilbaut ... Chris Hoyle
Kristen Comerford


via Hallmark:

'Sandra Brown's White Hot' relates the story of Sayre Hoyle (Grimes-Beech), a single and strikingly beautiful interior designer, enjoying success in San Francisco after running away from her Louisiana hometown, where her family still resides, a decade ago. When she learns of her brother's unexpected death, Sayre returns to her small town to attend his funeral, and revisits the strained relationship she's always had with her father, Huff Hoyle, (Schneider) a corrupt factory owner who lords over his employees - and most of the town - using fear and intimidation. There, Sayre meets Beck Merchant (Faris), Huff's handsome attorney, who immediately takes an interest in her. Though it's widely believed her brother died from an accidental gunshot wound, Sayre soon begins to suspect foul play, and turns the town upside down when she launches her own investigation, attempting to discover the truth behind his tragic passing. Uncovering a web of dark secrets, lies, cover ups and revenge plots, Sayre struggles with family dynamics, terrifying threats and local law-enforcement officials. Despite becoming more and more attracted to Beck - and maybe even falling in love - Sayre remains determined to prove her brother was murdered and bring his killer to justice.

The Hallmark Channel * Sprouts * New Theme with 3 "SPRING FLING" Movies!!!

image via: Hallmark Crown Media

*This post has been updated below to reflect all the new details on "Spring Fling"!!!

The Hallmark Channel announces... "three original movies celebrating springtime love and romance, and the fresh start the season of spring inspires: All Yours (previously titled: The Manny) starring Nicollette Sheridan, Hearts of Spring starring Lisa Whelchel, and Love By Chance starring Beau Garrett and Brenda Strong."

Here are the Premiere Dates for "Spring Fling"
on the Hallmark Channel:
April 2, 2016-
All Yours
April 9, 2016-
Hearts of Spring
April 16, 2016-
Love By Chance

For those of you who follow this site closely, there was originally buzz that there would be four "Spring Fling" movies. However, as we can all see that has been reduced to three. Perhaps, that fourth movie was scratched or moved to a later date.

Whatever the case, Spring will be here soon and it's always fun and fresh to have something new to look forward to!

"Spring Fling" Premieres with Lisa Whelchel and Michael Shanks in "Hearts of Spring"


Movie: Hearts of Spring

via Hallmark: Single mom CARLY ASHBY raises her daughter SADIE, runs her flower shop and blogs about parenting, her real passion. Off the dating scene for years, Carly finally finds an attractive marital prospect in DR. ANDY SOMMERS, a pediatrician who just may be Mr. Right. But when she discovers that Andy is actually ‘Jugglingdad,’ an opinionated blogger with radically different ideas about parenting who blows up her blog with his fiery comments, their fledgling relationship seems headed for the rocks...

Hearties Party:

Many devoted "When Calls the Heart" fans (who call themselves Hearties!) will be having Hearties Parties on Sunday night celebrating the premiere!

I thought I would share... these are a few of the mini Heart Cakes we made at our home... as we look forward to this weekend's premiere of When Calls The Heart!

It's a delicious yellow cake made in a heart shaped baking pan! You can find them easily at Amazon...

They are quite yummy, too! Couldn't wait 'til Sunday... we are celebrating all week!!!

As many of you know, there is another special delivery arriving on February 21st, Sunday Night... it's the premiere of "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: From the Heart" on the other Hallmark station... Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, at the EXACT SAME TIME!!!
The "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" Series won my heart over, just as "When Calls the Heart" did, from the start!
So, if you are a fan of both shows, a Hearties fan and a POstable, you must choose between their premiere airings on Sunday night.
I took a Poll here to see what you all plan to watch and here are the latest results...
54% of you plan to watch "When Calls the Heart"
46% of you plan to watch "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: From the Heart"
I kind of expected "When Calls the Heart" to have more - since more people have the Hallmark Channel, than Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, but I know fans truly love both shows!

Social Media:

You can also join the "When Calls the Heart" celebration by live tweeting along with other fans and WCTH cast members on Sunday night, February 21st starting at 8:30pm/7:30c. Be sure to use the hashtag #Hearties and handle @WCTH_TV when tweeting!
