What are the Hallmark Channel Summer Nights movies about?

From Hawaii to the Caribbean, these four all-new original movies take place in tropical hideaways that are perfect for falling in love. Let’s take a closer look at the four movies in this year’s Summer Night’s programming.

Hidden Gems, starring Hunter King and Beau Mirchoff 

"While prepping for her sister’s wedding, Addie (King) loses her grandmother’s ring in the waters of Hawaii. She hires dive instructor Jack (Mirchoff) to search for her lost treasure. They immediately clash with each other when Addie insists she go on the pursuit with Jack. Once they come to an agreement, Jack ends up serving as Addie’s tour guide of the island’s hidden gems."

Caribbean Summer, starring Heather Hemmens and Ser’Darius Blain

"Jade (Hemmens), a morning news producer, is forced to take a vacation after an embarrassing gaffe during a live broadcast. She arrives on a relaxing Caribbean island, but Jade’s trip gets off to a rocky start thanks to a snafu involving the house she rented for her stay. Serendipitously, Jade manages to turn things around and begins a romantic Caribbean adventure with the legitimate owner of the house, a mysterious man named Ford (Blain). As Jade slowly lets her guard down and welcomes all that the island, its people, and her handsome host have to offer, her heart and job come into direct conflict when she finds out the true backstory of the man she’s falling for — and it’s a career-defining scoop."

Moriah’s Lighthouse, starring Rachelle Lefevre and Luke Macfarlane

"Based on the book series by Serena Miller. Moriah (Lefevre) is a woodworking artisan living in a French seaside town, who dreams of restoring the local lighthouse. When Ben (Macfarlane), an American architect, comes to town, it seems as though her dreams will never become reality after she learns he’s there to give the lighthouse a makeover… but for another buyer."

Two Tickets to Paradise, starring Ashley Williams and Ryan Paevey

"Two strangers meet on what feels like the worst day of their lives. Hannah (Williams) and Josh (Paevey) have both been stood up at the altar. While shocked and devastated, they happen to meet at the park, which turns out to be the morale boost they need to commit to taking their honeymoon vacations. They realize they are going to the same honeymoon resort and keep crossing paths in tropical paradise. Seeing the futility of fighting fate, Hannah and Josh eventually join forces and help learn from one other to enjoy their vacations."
