Tess and Logan are back solving mysteries as an old friend of Tess's is found dead just before he was going to propose to his girlfriend. Codes, cyphers, and crossword puzzles all lend a hand at finding the killer as Tess and Logan try to find a way to work together to decipher the clues.
The police officer who gave Tess a crossword puzzle clue was played by Will Shortz, puzzle editor of the New York Times and National Public Radio's puzzle master. See more »
As Tess and Logan are driving at about 1 hour 10 mins, camera switches from one to another. Sometimes they have seat belts on sometimes not. See more »
It's been two months since Tess (Lacey Chabert) and Logan (Brennan Elliott) have last been together. Her friend Lyle asks her to encode his marriage proposal to girlfriend Abby in a crossword puzzle. Soon after, he is found murdered and Logan investigates.
The two leads try to build up some chemistry. They should concentrate on this part for the future of this franchise. It's a Hallmark mystery movie. The book cipher premise is grade school stuff. The fact that the police needs explanations makes them look stupid. The plot is not exceeding my expectations but is reasonably acceptable. At the end of the day, these are not high grade movies but this franchise has some legs... at least until someone cheats on their college entrance exam.
