Amy, professor in "Who Dunnit" and speaker at Teachable Talk in Seattle, meets her ex there. She also meets the owner of a crime solving software, who's later found dead. Amy and her detective friend...
I have three favorite mystery series on Hallmark's Movies and Mysteries Channel: Murder she Baked, Aurora Teagarden Mysteries, and Mystery 101. Murder She Baked used to be my favorite, thanks to the lack of recent entries and the continued entries of Aurora Teagarden (that and Candace Cameron Bure's star power along with her fellow cast members)...I think Aurora has now eclipsed Murder she Baked in to my favorite. I mention these, because Mystery 101 has been a slow burn that I am really enjoying and thanks to the on-screen chemistry between our two stars playing Travis and Amy may be working it's way to the top of my list.
Mystery 101's main protagonist is professor of mystery fiction, Amy Winslow, who's father happens to be former professor turned famous deceive writer, Graham Winslow. In addition to teaching Amy ends up consulting with and eventually helping at first reluctantly our hard nosed former big city detective, Travis Burke.
What do I like about the series? Travis and Amy are adults and treat each other with respect...all the while developing a slow smoldering chemistry that is fun to be a witness to. Amy's father and his serial novels are woven throughout the series and occasionally used as a fun hook for the audience. There is great humor in this series that isn't afraid to poke fun at itself and it's genre. The dialogue is smart and I love all of the mystery novel references and throwbacks. I have actually added books to my tbr thanks to this series.
I would have loved to take Amy's course in college!
