Goofs

Gun handling in movies and real life is very important. One of the four golden rules of gun safety is to always keep your finger off of the trigger until you are ready to fire. In this case you can clearly see that Maggie has her finger on the trigger on two occasions. Once when confronting the passport forger and the second when she retrieves her gun from Claudia. Another of the four golden rules is to know your target and what is behind the target. In this case Maggie is clearly shooting toward her colleagues and could have killed either one. Both of these actions are serious violations of gun safety and should not be depicted in a movie, even if it is just make believe. See more »

Quotes

Henry: So, are we going to talk about what happened?
Maggie: About the fact that you kissed me? I'd rather not right now.
Henry: How about the fact that you kissed me back?
Maggie: I wouldn't say I kissed you back.
Henry: Oh really, what would you call it?
Maggie: Well, you came at me out of the blue.
Henry: Oh, that was hardly out of the blue, you were waiting for me to kiss you.
Maggie: What? I was on a case, the last thing I was thinking about was anybody kissing me.
Henry: Ah, well, you could have fooled me.

Diamonds are a girl's best friend

Dylan Neal our full time gourmet cook and part time amateur sleuth recommends a new chef who is working out well in Ben Wilkinson's Italian restaurant which is something of a bay area institution. But things are not going well in his marriage because wife Jordana Largy has been fooling around with that selfsame new chef Matt Hamilton.

Wilkinson is shot by someone who tried to break into his house and later he's finished off in the hospital. Someone clearly did not want this man to live. But there's more to this story than a bad love affair. There's a rumored fortune in diamonds from the old country and a lot of people are looking for them.

As mysteries go this one isn't all that hard to figure out. But in an unusual twist to the Hallmark mystery formula, the amateur detective is a guy who assist the professional woman, in this case SFPD homicide detective Brooke Burns. Neal and Burns have a nice chemistry though in this case another police detective is moving in on Burns.

Nice chemistry, but no real mystery.
