This is the second film that Hallmark has done for the Aurora Teagarden series. I didn’t watch the first one, Bone to Pick, yet, but I have it on my DVR. That said, I did feel a little out of the loop as far as references to past event and people were concerned. I also thought there were too many characters, but maybe I wouldn’t have felt so overwhelmed had I seen the first film, where several were introduced.
What I did enjoy was watching Candace Cameron Bure in the role of Aurora Teagarden. She seemed truly fascinated by the mystery, yet she expressed great compassion for the victims involved. The film also manages to keep the tone light, despite the heavy subject matter. There is also a building sense of urgency as Teagarden seeks out the murderer. This is a film worth a watch.
