Melissa Claire Egan and Marc Blucas star in Holiday for Heroes, a new original premiering Friday, November 8 on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries as part of the network’s annual Miracles of Christmas programming event.

Audrey (Egan) and First Sergeant Matt (Blucas) have been writing each other since his thank you letter last Christmas, after her brother Devin, a corporal in Matt’s unit, shared some of the care package she’d sent. When Matt’s last letter to Audrey telling her that he’ll be stationed in her hometown for a month gets lost, she is surprised and delighted to finally meet him face-to-face in her coffee shop, and there are definite sparks. Audrey, who is once again hard at work on the town’s annual Holiday for Heroes event, honoring local service members, soon gets news that her brother and the rest of his unit won’t be home for Christmas.

When the mayor later reveals that the town is pulling this year’s funding for Holiday for Heroes, Matt steps in to help Audrey save this important event. Working side-by-side draws the pair closer, but with Matt being stationed nearby only temporarily, neither is sure of sharing their feelings. Will the spirit of the season bring Matt and Audrey’s love beyond their letters?
