Maggie Lawson (“Psych,” “The Ranch,” “Angel from Hell”), and Sam Page (“Mad Men,” “Desperate Housewives,” “House of Cards”) star in “The Story of Us” a new, original movie premiering Saturday, February 9, (8 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Channel.
About The Movie:
Jamie Vaughn (Lawson) is a small-town bookstore owner in Oregon who learns her cherished store, True Love Books and Café, along with several other struggling local businesses, face a forced buyout with permanent closure. Leading the charge is Sawyer O’Dell (Page), lead architect for a powerful property developer – and Jamie’s former flame – who plans to revamp the district with more modern, upscale and profitable businesses, but with a catch. Because Sawyer is a local boy, he is tasked with returning to Waterford to talk with and convince all the business owners to embrace their vision and sign deals agreeing to sell. If he succeeds, Sawyer will be rewarded a permanent position for Sawyer in the firm. His return jolts Jamie’s world as her past feelings for him come rushing back and is soon crushed to learn he is at the helm of the deal.
As Valentine’s Day approaches and closure of these historic stores seems imminent, Jamie reaches into the bookstore’s romantic history by featuring recently discovered, timeworn Valentines on old-fashioned card stock from past customers. She not only hatches a heartfelt plan to save her beloved bookstore, but she must also sort out her old feelings for Sawyer when her most recent boyfriend Matt (Jacob Richter, “Legends of Tomorrow”) returns to town, and discovers true love doesn’t have to be perfect; it just has to be true.
