Jenn finds the body of a local college history professor hidden in a suit of armor she purchased. After the professor's teaching assistant becomes the next victim, Jennifer finds herself caught in a killer's web of dangerous lies.
Jennifer (Laughlin) discovers the body of a local college professor in a suit of armor she had purchased. When the professor's teaching assistant becomes the next victim Jennifer finds that she has once again caught herself entangled with a killer.
Just a tad bit weaker than the superior film Murder By Text but this one also passes the smell test
This is another in the Garage Sale Mystery series of a higher quality murder/mystery made for television movie than the many others that pop up weekly by Lifetime and the other television networks. When Mrs. Shullivan and I now see the film title preface "Garage Sale Mystery" we know that the writers/producers/directors and most importantly the actors, are going to provide us with a highly entertaining film.
Lori Loughlin who plays Jennifer Shannon, working mother of two teenage children, wife, and the co-owner of a second hand antique store but her real passion seems to be continually finding herself in the middle of various mysterious murders with a list of between 3-6 potential suspects.
In this episode there is an authentic 400 year old medieval knights suit of armor that has somehow directly or indirectly caused the murder of a college professor of antiquities. So Jennifer Shannon plays amateur sleuth once again with her better than average investigative skills and her even cuter personality and charm that invariably draws answers from the questions she asks her potential suspects.
Mrs. Shullivan and I both found ourselves changing our minds a few times while trying to guess who the murderer actually is. Isn't that the sign of a decent murder/mystery film? I give Garage Sale Mystery: Murder Most Medieval a respectable 7 out of 10 rating.
It is worth a watch if for no other reason than the charm and wit displayed by our amateur sleuth Jennifer Shannon which is played perfectly by Lori Loughlin and also because of a decent story line that does not have to rely as other mystery series such as Lifetime does on some crappy suspenseful music piped in that just irritates its viewers to no end. No, Garage Sale Mystery: Murder Most Medieval provides its viewers with a good old fashioned murder mystery thrown in with some day to day family and friend dynamics.
