Two Archeologists Find 'Love in the Great Smoky Mountains'

Now that summer is winding down, we can look forward to chilly autumn nights and sweater weather. In the first film of Hallmark Channel's Fall Into Love programming event, two archeologists rekindle their romance while they search for a mystical treasure in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Here's everything we know about Love in the Great Smoky Mountains: A National Park Romance including a exclusive sneak peek! Take a look!

What is Love in the Great Smoky Mountains about?

Great ready to learn a few facts about the Great Smoky Mountains! Former high school sweethearts, Haley (Arielle Kebbel) and Rob (Zach Roerig), bump into each other while at an excavation site for an archeological research team, currently in the field at Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Rob immediately tries to reconnect with Haley and rekindle their romance, but Haley isn’t quite over Rob’s betrayal. During their senior year, Haley had applied for a research grant that was awarded to Rob instead of her. The two have not spoken since, but now Haley is determined to remain professional as she and Rob work together their current excavation site. The two eventually reconnect over their common love of nature and history, spending time together exploring the park. But when Haley finds pictographs in a cave that may lead to the existence of a mythical Cherokee diamond, Rob struggles to keep up with her adventurous nature.

And to complicate their relationship even more, they discover they are once again competing for the same research grant. They work together and finally find the cave, and slowly realize that the journey is perhaps more important than the destination—and love is more valuable than any research grant.
