The presence of love premieres Sunday, March 13 at 9 p.m. ET on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. It focuses on Jocelyn “Joss” Lambert (chicago fire alum Mumford), a 33-year-old assistant professor of romantic literature.

For years, Joss has let practical concerns rule her life, sparing the heroines of the books she studies risk and adventure. But everything changes when she receives an unusual gift from her late mother: a 10-day trip to England to explore her roots. It’s a trip that Joss and his mother had planned to take together before his mother died. With a serious deadline looming at work, she decides to overcome her anxiety and go overseas.

After arriving in Cornwall at the farm her grandparents once owned, Joess meets the new owner, Daniel, her mother, Merryn, and her daughter, Tegan. But despite the change of scenery, Joss still suffers from writer’s block, until she bonds with Tegan, who suffers from dyslexia. As she helps the young girl overcome her challenges, she forges a deeper relationship with Daniel and Merryn, who have their own issues. But as her journey draws to a close, Joss must decide what’s next for her – and if her life could include the kind of romance she never thought possible.
