Storyline

Bright youngest graduate Randy (Stinky) Lawrence convinces Samantha to promote his brilliant murder video game in the bookstore in exchange for his help in convincing 'old friend' Donald Fiske, a celebrated author, to do a signing session there. To Randy's surprise, it works, but Fiske is poisoned after slipping out angry. Randy is Chief Connors's only suspect. Despite obvious repeated lies, Samantha sets out to prove his innocence. Fiske's greedy ex, Jody, pretends to have convinced him to remarry, yet she never even allowed their teenage son Cameron to set foot in Donald's fine home. Written by KGF Vissers

This entry into the Mystery Woman series had a lot more energy than some of its predecessors. The show seems to be moving a little faster as the characters are further developed.

"Game Time" featured a familiar face, William Katt, as an eccentric mystery writer who is murdered. The plot was interesting, concerning a video game, an old high school friend of Samantha's and his partner in the game venture. I still think the show is directed too pedantically, with way too many shots of the Mystery Woman store exterior, but perhaps there were a few less.

I agree with a previous comment about Kellie Martin. I am a long-time fan, and she is indeed an unusual woman. She was unforgettable as Lucy on "E.R." I'm glad to see her have her own series.

All of these Hallmark shows seem to be targeted towards baby boomers and older, those who were fans of the "Perry Mason" movies and series. The stories are clean, the regulars familiar, and the guest stars are people we're happy to see again. I for one say keep 'em coming.
