Storyline

Samantha Kinsey, owner of the Mystery Woman bookstore, admits it's strange that her friend Barbara Sommers has been left out of her beloved brother's will. Not only that, the lawyer says Barbara signed over her half of the family business-something she swears she didn't do. Suspecting foul play, Barbara points a finger at her greedy relatives and claims that she has proof caught on film. Soon after, Barbara is brutally murdered. With the help of her friends, Philby and Cassandra, Samantha pulls out all the stops to reveal whodunit. But the case-one with clues stretching back to World War II-proves far more complex than she ever imagined. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Goofs

Samantha is told by her friend Cassie (who should know) that she can not see the will because it's not a public document. The very purpose of a will is to put an estate IN the public record, for all to see, so that claim-holders can see what is available to both heirs and creditors. The plot even has Samantha go so far as to commit a burglary of the attorney's office to steal a copy of the will. See more »

on the dull side
28 February 2005 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

This entry into Hallmark's rotating mystery series is fairly dull. One wonders where that extremely high rating - and no comments - comes from.

Mystery Woman lacks the colorfulness of the McBride series. Kellie Martin is darling, but this show dragged. It's always great to see old-timer Clarence Williams III. However, he is so laid back in this, he makes the late Perry Como seem manic.

The lack of energy is probably due to the poor direction. One more establishing shot of the "Mystery Woman Bookstore" and I was ready to do an Elvis and shoot the television. The whole thing was done in a very pedantic style.
