In the small resort town of Lighthouse Cove, everyone knows that the best man for the job is a woman. And that woman is Shannon Hughes, owner of Hughes Restoration and an expert in Victorian home restoration and renovation. Through her renovations she will find clues to uncover the house's secret past and in turn become an unlikely sleuth to help crack these unsolved mysteries. From the Fixer Upper Mystery book series by Kate Carlisle.
The artifacts shown in the movie's "Maritime Museum" were loaned to the production by the actual Maritime Museum of British Columbia from among the 35,000 objects in their collection. See more »
At around 11:00 Shannon says she can put a spare tire on in 5 minutes. She does not take the jack out also she fiddles around with a couple lugs with the Lug Wrench for a few minutes. It takes quite a bit of "grunting" to break lugs... I did not hear even one. See more »
This is the latest in the cosy mystery movies that Hallmark specialises in. As usual, it is set in a beautiful, picturesque American small town, although filmed in Canada. Jewel is the winsome lead who has a property restoration and renovation company. When one of her neighbours is found dead, she suspects foul play. There is a reason that she is averse to seeking hep from the police which is revealed later in the story. Luckily, a famed true crime writer, Colin Ferguson, has just arrived and is her latest client, and is willing to assist in her snooping. Their relationship is warm and fun, with hints it could develop into romance in the future. The mystery itself is reasonably involving even if the culprit is guessable long before the denouement, and the details are well laid out. A nice touch is that Jewel uses her skills and observations learned in the fixing-up business to uncover a hidden treasure and then to trap the killer. This is a promising beginning and should be a welcome addition to the ongoing amateur lady sleuth series.
