Goofs

The character of Marco was cast with an actor that was too young to portray the character. Marco is played by Brennan Elliott, who was born in 1975. Marco says he served as a Sergeant in the first Gulf War, which took place from August 1990 through February 1991. At the time, Elliott would have been about 15-16 years old and as such too young to serve much less attain the rank of Sergeant. See more »

this one is not great

These Hallmark mysteries follow the same basic structure: a female amateur sleuth with a business of some sort that she has with a female partner, and the partner is constantly trying to talk her out of doing investigations on her own; they live in an idyllic small town.

Throw a story at it and it's done.

Brooke Shields stars in "The Flower Shop Mystery: Mum's the Word" for Hallmark. She plays Abby Knight, a widow with a teenage daughter who returns from New York City, where she worked as a lawyer, to her small home town. There she opens a flower shop.

On her opening day, Abby's car is hit by someone whom she learns later may have been fleeing a crime scene where a young man was murdered. She launches her own investigation, but then meets a good- looking ex-soldier (Brennan Elliott) who works as a bartender. The two of them work together.

The cast is of a higher level than the other mysteries, with Shields, Elliott, and Beau Bridges as Abby's father.

They just need to pay a little more attention to the scripts.

There were a series of mysteries some years ago - Jane Doe and Mystery Woman, both of which featured good actresses in the leads and were slower than molasses.

The flower shop, garage sale, and Teagarden mysteries move a little faster and have more energy behind them. They're light fare for someone who doesn't want to think for a couple of hours.

I saw Brooke Shields in person some years ago - even from where I was standing, I could tell first how tall she is, and then how graceful. At 51, she's still a beauty and always nice to see. But these films need to be brought up a notch.
