Murder is something to sing about when Mystery Woman Samantha Kinsey-an expert in pulp fiction, and increasingly proficient when it comes to real-life crime-untangles a record-breaking murder. Mystery Woman bookshop owner, Samantha Kinsey, has offered to host a charity concert for a once-famous folk-rock trio out to recapture their old fame flame. But sweet success hits the ultimate sour note when the band's promoter is found murdered in his hotel room. Sam and her partner in crime, Philby, investigate, digging up deadly secrets of private indiscretions, professional greed, and personal vengeance that put a twisted spin on fame and fortune-and bring a whole new meaning to a Top Ten hit.

Hallmark Channel is targeting the baby boomers and older crowd with its Mystery Movie series. Mystery Woman, one of the shows included in the series, is about a bookstore owner (Kellie Martin) who is constantly being embroiled in real-life murders. Sing Me a Murder concerned a '60s and '70s folk song trio on the comeback trail. You can't get more baby boomer than that.
Mystery Woman is mildly entertaining but doesn't have much pep to it. The pace is slow and the directing pedantic. Clarence Williams III's character comes off as dull. Kellie Martin, who is a very good actress, really doesn't have much to do. We hear about all the exciting events that Mystery Woman has at her store, but in this episode, we didn't get to see any of them. We don't see many customers either.
David Naughton, one of the guest stars in Sing Me a Murder, is a long way from "I'm a Pepper" - can it really be that many years since I've seen him? I didn't recognize him at first. It is certainly fun to see Williams, Martin, and various old-timers. I just wish they had a little more energy.
