Meanwhile, Jennifer's partner in the antique store, Dani, has an unexpected family member visit. The visit takes an interesting twist. And another story line is between Jennifer's husband, Jason Shannon, their daughter and several young people in the town. He is an architect and is planning to tear down a building the young people want to save. This makes an interesting atmosphere between the man and his daughter. There is no ...

The story is interesting enough. I didn't suspect the right person until very late. Actually, I think they had almost no proof, even after the arrest.

The acting doesn't seem real. The characters are shallow. To me there was one interesting quirk - Loughlin's acting at times reminding me very much of her co-star on When Calls the Heart, Pascale Hutton. Only some little snippets.
