Season two of the multi-generational family drama "Chesapeake Shores" follows Abby O'Brien (Meghan Ory), a high-powered career woman, divorcee and mother to twin daughters, as she adjusts to life back in her hometown of Chesapeake Shores. Abby now balances a budding relationship with her former high school sweetheart, Trace (Jesse Metcalfe), working for a firm that does business with her uncompromising father Mick (Treat Williams) and raising two school-aged daughters.

'SUMMER IN THE VINEYARD'

Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere

Stars: Rachael Leigh Cook ("Perception") and Brendan Penny ("Chesapeake Shores") Premieres: Saturday, August 12 (9 p.m. ET/PT)

It's been three seasons since award-winning winemaker Frankie Baldwin (Cook) and Nate DeLuca (Penny) became partners in love and work as co-owners of picturesque Sorrento Farms in the Napa Valley town of St. Madeline. Summer finds them on the verge of bottling their first vintage, just in time for a highly-publicized food-and-wine event that could launch Sorrento into the big time.

Premieres: Saturday, August 19 (9 p.m. ET/PT)

Veterinarian Dr. Carly Monroe (Lilley) makes it a habit to stop by the local dog shelter as often as possible for two reasons: #1 She has a passion for animals and treats the resident pups pro bono and #2 she's secretly in love with the shelter's owner, Dan Landis (Cermak) - and those closest to them have taken notice. Unfortunately for the pair, Dan has agreed to marry his glamorous TV personality girlfriend and move to the Big Apple in 30 days. With Dan's big move looming in the near future, his sister, Michelle, decides to take matters into her own hands by encouraging Carly to show him how she feels. The two arrange a local dog show to help promote adoptions in hopes of bringing Carly and Dan closer together. The question is: can Carly win over his heart before he disappears from her life (in 30 days or less!)?

Premieres: Sunday, August 20 (10 p.m. ET/PT)

It's easy to feel at home in Mitford; the surroundings are green and natural, the air is fresh and pure, the village is charming and the people who live there are neighborly and lovable - all the things writer Cynthia Coppersmith (MacDowell) is looking for to help her finish her next book. When Cynthia arrives in the picture-perfect town to settle her beloved uncle's affairs after his passing and get his house ready for sale, she is quickly drawn in to life in Mitford. Father Tim Kavanaugh (Mathison), the town's bachelor rector, develops feelings for Cynthia despite their rocky start, as does a handsome realtor who seems to be looking to hang a "sold" sign on Cynthia's heart. After Cynthia agrees to help Father Tim look after a lonely boy in need of some TLC in the wake of his parents' military deployment overseas, it becomes clear that Mitford has grown on her like a beautiful, flowering vine. By the time she finishes her latest book about a magical cat named Violet, Cynthia is torn between returning to the big city and making Mitford her new home.

Kate (Helfer), a driven accounting executive, heads to Cancun with her boyfriend Eric (Elrod), an equally ambitious land development executive, for some much-needed rest and relaxation. But the getaway they agreed would be 90 percent romance and just 10 percent work becomes anything but that. Upon arrival, Eric learns a prominent real estate developer is a guest in their resort. Wanting to seize the opportunity for potential business, Eric chases this new venture and leaves Kate to her own devices time and again. Luckily, Shep (Campbell), the resort's activities director, is an old friend of Kate's from her camp counselor days and more than willing to help fill her solo hours with fun and adventure. As the old friends spend more time together and reconnect, Kate is reminded of dreams she used to have and finds herself wondering if it's time to change course.
