Howdy, howdy, Hearties! Welcome to a big milestone: Hooked Heartie’s very first “Podcast Week”. I thought this would be a fun way to finish up the fall season! Every post this week, (and there will be three!), will contain a podcast that I’ve been involved with in the last little while. I just can’t believe I’ve had the chance to be in enough to fill a week! New and exciting experience!


Today: Television. You’ll hear about the season finale of When Hope Calls, hopes for a season 2, gearing up for seaon 7 of When Calls the Heart, and thoughts about the 2019 Hallmark Channel TV run in general.

And if you watch closely, you’ll see:

1) A special guest arrive on the scene. 😀

2) My hysterical reaction to a much-anticipated happening 😉

Hello to Monday! Happy Columbus Day here in the US, and Happy Thanksgiving to Canadian Hearties! We are winding down on When Hope Calls, then we really WILL have to wait a while before we see anything close to When Calls the Heart…unless you go back and watch reruns for the zillionth time like I am. But I’m watching with a brand new Heartie friend, so I have an excuse. 😉

So here is the link to the podcast audio for Episode 8: About a Girl. I’ll put the YouTube link in the comments. We’ve been having some trouble with the website, so please comment on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook if you’re having trouble, and I’ll get my tech guy (aka my hubby) on it right 




And here are the clues for this week’s mystery guest. Sadly, I didn’t get an interview with this person, but he/she is a favorite. Of course, all will become clear on Wednesday. 😉

1. This person eloped to Hawaii when they married their spouse.
2. This person has been in at least 4 other movies involving WCTH actors, plus the show itself.
3. This person worked for an oil company before becoming an actor.

You get to be your own Sleuther now! Happy figuring! Also please remember how appreciated your actions of clicking on ads and/or doing your Amazon shopping through this website would be. Every little bit helps! Thank you so much! This is Hooked Heartie, signing off! May your heart let your hope blossom!

Hello Hearties, and hello Monday! Those of you who were privileged to attend the Hearties Family Reunion, how was it??? Silly question, I know; no doubt you had the time of your lives! For anyone who doesn’t know, the Hearties Family Reunion, or HFR, is basically the Comicon of When Calls the Heart. The cast even comes up for an event on Saturday, and a tour of the set is thrown into the trip! I have yet to attend; it’s a dream of mine to travel there one day. This is the fifth one, and hopefully there will be many more! Those of you traveling home today, I hope this gives you something fun to watch or listen to as you make your way.

So here is the Hallmarkies Podcast for When Hope Calls Episode 7, entitled “Surprise!” And boy, were there a bunch of surprises surrounding this episode! As most of you know, Daniel Lissing’s birthday was on Friday, the 4th. But check this out! Not only was it Dan’s special day, but it was RJ Hatanaka’s as well! Two Mounties with the same birthday! And, icing on the cake, (pun intended!), this episode surrounds a birthday party. What are the odds? Have a listen, or a watch. One link is just below, and the other is in the comments. And below this link, you’ll find the clues for my first mystery guest of the month, who will be revealed on Wednesday.




1. This person loves to go out for sushi with cast.
2. This person has been involved with June Weddings, Fall Harvest, and Miracles of Christmas
3. This person is a Hallmark director

Cheerio for now! I’ll see you all back here on Wednesday for the answer, and ensuing post. 😉 This is Hooked Heartie, signing off! May your heart let your hope blossom!

Good morning, #Hearties and #Hallmarkies…well, at least for a few more minutes in my time zone. Here we are, last day of September. Break out the Halloween decorations! While you’re decking out your homes, I have here, for your enjoyment, the latest #Hallmarkies podcast, featuring episode 6 of When Hope Calls. We get to hear all about the youthful exploits of the prim and proper Miss Lillian. But here’s the really fun part: we’ve got ourselves a crossover! Another resident of Hope Valley made an appearance in Brookfield, and the surrounding areas. If you’ve seen the episode, you know who it is. If not, let’s just say his wavy brown hair has grown out a bit, but his blue eyes were as clear as ever. So have a listen, and enjoy!

Don’t forget to come back! October has more fun surprises. It’s Mystery Month! And a little friendly reminder: with online holiday shopping starting to pick up speed, the site and I would sure appreciate it if you use us. If you plan to shop on Amazon, please come onto the site, scroll to the bottom, and click on any Amazon link. Then buy anything you want, and we’ll get a percentage. That would sure help keep the lights on. I would sure appreciate it! Happy listening and happy shopping! This is Hooked Heartie, signing off! May your heart let your hope blossom!


Afternoon, everyone! Recovered from your long, crazy weekend? And those of you who tuned in, how did you enjoy the first two episodes of When Hope Calls on Saturday night? I know the special presentation hooked several people, and now they’re #Hopefuls as well as #Hearties. Well, if you’re new to the series, be sure to visit the blog from Wednesday, August 28th for the #WonderWednesday preview podcast of speculations; then every Monday afterward for our #MondayMusings recap and review of each episode.


And speaking of which, here is the review for Episode 5, A House United. I don’t know about you, but I really liked this one! As I said in the podcast, “There was something special about this one!” So give a listen and enjoy, or you can watch the video of our goofy expressions from the link in the comments.


The one thing we didn’t get to was the makeshift rope work belt. Whether it was historically researched and accurately portrayed, or just a really clever idea from the prop department, it was a nice touch! So wstch for it the next time, or first time, you watch the episode.

See you all Wednesday! And as promised, I’ve got another big surprise this week! So come check it out! This is Hooked Heartie, signing off! May your heart let your hope blossom!
