Alexa's character owns a photo studio where she creates the most beautiful portraits for engagements, business owners, real estate brokers, etc. in a formal studio setting. In addition to photography, she also conducts videography. Interestingly enough, mysteries have a way of finding her and she has a strong intuition and knack of solving them. Sometimes the mystery comes through the doors of the shop, sometimes it might be something she sees while shooting on-assignment, and sometimes she'll spot something at a crime scene that everybody missed. Alexa's character also uses her videography skills to start a part-time job - she gets a police scanner and begins to take the store van to breaking stories - could be a fire, could be an accident or even a murder. If her footage is good, she tries to sell it to local news stations for broadcast.

Did You Know?


The two stars, Alexa PenaVega (Allie Adams) and Carlos PenaVega (Sam Acosta), have been married since 2014. See more »


The detective states that the murder bullet, a 9mm, came from a Beretta 84. The 380 ACP, or 9 mm short, an extremely common handgun ammunition. The first issue is that the round fired by the model 84 would be referred to in the US as a 380, not a 9mm- which is used for the 9mm parabellum. The other detective makes the same 9mm error later when the murder weapon is found.

Next, while it is possible to determine the possible MAKE of a gun via the lands and grooves from a fired round, there is no way to determine which MODEL it came from since gun makers offer several models in the same caliber that use the same land and groove pattern. In this case, the Beretta 83 and 85 also use the same 380 round. The 84 and 85 have the same barrel, while the 83 uses a slightly longer barrel. See more »

Zero chemistry
18 July 2019 | by michaelalobbSee all my reviews

This is the first movie I've watched with these two married leads and I was shocked at the zero chemistry between them on screen. Why hasn't anyone at Hallmark picked up on that? Or don't they watch their own films & have their eyes closed during production? Other than that (quite important aspect) the sets were beautiful, everyone had perfect hair and the plot moved along nicely.
