Hallmark Mystery Movies

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you had a very nice Mother's Day and are ready for a "Terrific Tuesday.",
My blog today is Hallmark Movies that are based on our cozy mysteries. We do not get the package of channels that I can watch Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, but I was thrilled last month when I could receive them free for a whole month.

I loved the garage sale mysteries, the Aurora Teagarden Series, Charlaine Harris's books are the best and Hallmark didn't lt me down. Before the time ended for me to watch these wonderful cozy series I got to see MURDER SHE BAKED. Based on the Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder Mystery Series by Joanne Fluke.

I have to admit I did not picture the male characters as they were portrayed. I LOVED Hannah's mother and sister. Hannah, was excellent in her part and the setting was nice.
Plot wound up nicely. I am thrilled that cozies are getting their Just Desserts when it comes to movies.

I have to say that the murder she baked series has room to grow. I think it will grow because the seeds are there.

Now for the ratings: Garage Sale Mystery 9 out of 10.

Aurora Teagarden Series: 10 out of 10

Murder She Baked: 7 out of 10.

Keep it cozy,



  1. I have enjoyed each of these. And I would mention the Mystery Woman ones too. And this weekend is the Gourmet Detective. I really am enjoying them all

  2. I only did the newer cozy mystery movies. :)


  3. I saw some ads for these, but then realized I don't have access to that channel either. What a bummer, they sound great!

Upside Down Post

Upside Down Post:

Yurn your frown upside down into a smile as this post is for those who do not enjoy the family gatherings at Christmas. You know who you are and why but today I thought it would be fun to have a little fun.

This is a "Would you rather" reply when someone asks what you would rather do get through the holidays than spend it with family?

1. I'd rather drop a house on my sister.

2. Have a root canal

3. Eat fruitcake even the store bought kind.

4. Have my neighbor tell me about her colon in great detail

5. Dust

6. Watch my cat chase and kill a mouse

7. Hear the neighbor's dogs barking all night long.

8. Shovel snow

9. Open my prezzies and discover everyone sent me clothes two sizes too small. What is family for but to get the sizes wrong even after they call and ask.

10. I'd rather read a good murder mystery set at Christmas this would make it a killer holiday for me.

Okay you all come up with your own funny list and I can't wait to see what you have. Oh one…

An Interview with Frances Brody

MM: Frances, give us the back story on how and when you became an author?
I started by telling stories. I’d walk home from school with a friend and spin some tale that would last till the parting of our ways at the corner shop. In my twenties, I wrote stories that were published in magazines and broadcast on BBC Radio. I then wrote radio and theatre plays and scripts for television. My first novel was based on stories told to me by my mother.
MM: Tell us about what you are currently writing and what has been released?
I’m editing the eighth Kate Shackleton novel, Death at the Seaside. My setting is Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast. Whitby is where Bram Stoker has Count Dracula land in the Russian ship Demeter in the shape of a black dog. Dracula doesn’t appear in my story. But if he did, Kate Shackleton and her trusty assistants, Jim Sykes and Mrs Sugden, would deal with him.My latest release in the US is Kate Shackleton #5, Murder on a Summer’s Day. In the UK, it’s #7, A Death in the…

Review - Yellow as Legal Pads by Fran Stewart

Biscuit and Bob are on their honeymoon when Bob tries to help someone dying with resuscitation efforts that leave him poisoned and in ICU.

The story time hops a lot and introduces a lot of characters and isn't really your typical amateur sleuth asking questions all over town.

It is a series of pieces out of the life of the Holvers family and events that led to the current situation she and Bob are in.

It is interesting and complex at times but satisfying as the pieces come together.

I saw several reviews where the number of characters and time hopping frustrated readers and I admit, I had to pause a few times to make sure I was in tune to everything going on, but I thought it was fun a non-traditional which was a bit refreshing.
