Goofs

The show's central location, "The Mystery Woman Bookstore", only sells mysteries and thrillers according to its owner. When the camera pans the shelves, the readable titles include, "The Handbook of Practical Psychology", "The Great White Lie", "The Hite Report" and the "The Firestone Story" - all of which are non-fiction. Though you might consider some of those topics thrilling or mysterious, it appears the shelves have been dressed with random used books. See more »

Bookstore she owns, murder she investigates
20 March 2010 | by (Redondo Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

Kellie Martin's Mystery woman series runs on Hallmark, and this is one of the better installments. She (a book store owner) and her friend Cassie (a district attorney) take time off to attend a health spa joint that employs some controversial off beat quackery methods to help patrons attain beauty. (When you see Sam and Cassie, you'll wonder why they feel they need to improve anything, but I digress.) A girl dies mysteriously at the spa. And so amateur sleuth Sam is on the case, with Cassie right beside her. Suspects are too few in number, but the course of the story makes this TV film a nice diversion. Kellie Martin's spunky character is somewhere between Murder She Wrote and Columbo, although she's more spunky than Jessica and not nearly as eccentric as the cigar smoking Lt. Columbo. Cassie makes a good counterpoint, being more down to Earth, but just as determined to catch the killer. When spa attendees start to get sick, the situation intensifies.

Not bad at all for an evening in, if you like the easy-going light hearted pace used here. Martin and her co-stars brighten things up, and there's a nice mix of interesting personalities in this one.
