The script for Hometown Holiday was written by Amanda McNiece (My Perfect Romance) and is based on the popular romance novel by Caro Carson, entitled, The Maverick’s Holiday Masquerade. The book synopsis surrounds the romance in Rust Creek Falls after a wedding and centers on characters Kristen and the object of her affections, a cowboy named Ryan, who left town following the wedding. He returns, but is harboring a secret about who he really is that may thwart the budding romance between the two.
Author Carson took to her Facebook page from the movie set in Canada back in June and enthused, “On the movie set of Hometown Holiday, which is being made from my book The Maverick’s Holiday Masquerade, filming on location outside of Toronto. Everyone at Brain Power Studios, and I do mean everyone, were an absolutely wonderful team. It was a thrill to be part of the movie magic for a couple of days.”
