The Hallmark Movies & Mysteries holiday romance, Cranberry Christmas, is unusual in that the featured couple are married and challenged not by first love, but with a second chance.

Dawn (DeLoach) and Gabe Hughes (Ayres), the cofounders of the Cranberry Lane lifestyle brand, have reached an impasse in their relationship.

Although they have lost touch with each other, fate has other plans when the new seasonal movie premieres Saturday, October 31.

Concentrating only on work, Dawn and Gabe have let their marriage slide until they can no longer communicate with each other on a personal level. So, they separate until asked to promote their town’s Cranberry Christmas Festival, on national television, together.

Feigning marital bliss, “Mr. and Mrs. Cranberry Lane” prepare the “perfect” Christmas.

The planning involves talking to each other and the beginnings of a reconnection begin to happen.

With the rekindling of love comes complications when each is offered outside career opportunities.

Can they give their marriage a second chance or will they pursue their own separate dreams?

It will take more than mistletoe to help this couple to come back together.
