entertaining Christmas mystery
21 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Deck the Halls" from 2011 was shown as part of the TNT Tuesday Night Mystery series, though it's unlikely it was produced for that reason. The story concerns the kidnapping of a successful businessman, Luke Reilly (David Selby) and his driver, and the attempts of his detective daughter Regan (Scottie Thompson) and an amateur detective (Kathy Najimy) to get them back and discover the perpetrator.

First of all, what a cast: besides those mentioned above, Jane Alexander played successful mystery writer Nora Reilly, Regan's mother. Scottie Thompson was a new actress for me. She's beautiful, has legs that go up to the ceiling and did a great job.

Secondly, it was fantastic to see David Selby again, and he looks wonderful.

Kathy Najimy plays Alvirah Meehan, who won $40 million in the lottery. She and her husband are ongoing characters in Mary Higgins Clark's books. Alvirah is a former cleaning woman who loves to solve mysteries. There were several references to past cases, It would be great if TNT would produce more of her stories.

This is by far my favorite of this Tuesday night series. It was light with good acting and a good story. Highly recommended.
