Synopsis: Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Higher Ground On Hallmark Movies And Mysteries (HMM)
The Postables have a postal mystery on their hands again. This time, they need to deliver a letter to a woman named Hattie who was lost years prior during Hurricane Katrina. Back then, Gabe, a black blues singer and talented songwriter, had a thing for Hattie, a night club owner in New Orleans music district. Not one to bother anyone, Gabe kept his feelings to himself but later decided to profess his love for her. He penned a lovely letter to Hattie that he planned to have delivered. However, his plans were thwarted and his dreams washed away after the 2005 storm came and destroyed everything, leaving New Orleans residents homeless, hungry, and afraid.
Gabe survived the storm, but not his broken heart for Hattie, who he was never able to find again. Still waiting at the place where he told her he would be, Gabe hopes to find Hattie again.

When the Postables happen upon the letter, they are moved and touched by the backstory. They feel compelled to find the beautiful Hattie who stole Gabe’s heart. But finding the club owner will be like finding a needle in a haystack since most of the residents’ lives were ripped apart before they evacuated and relocated to other areas. Some even perished. Was Hattie among them?
Meanwhile, Oliver is struggling with his own hidden feelings for Shane. Will he finally get the courage, like Gabe, and tell Shane how much he loves her?
