You never know what you will find

This Garage Sale Mystery: The Art Of Murder gives us a real insight into why one should go to garage sales and why Lori Loughlin does. You never know what you will find at these things.

In this case Loughlin is helping Eva Bourne and her daughter's sorority with a fund raising rummage sale. One of the moms Ona Grauer donates a painting that Loughlin tells her to take back, the thing is valuable. When she visits later she finds Grauer dead in what the police are calling a slip and fall.

That's just a way too coincidental for Loughlin and our intrepid sleuth searches for answers. Let's say the killer is one who would certainly know and appreciate the value of said painting.

The other big issue is that of Keegan Connor Tracy and even though this was a stepmother she feels the loss keenly. She'd like it to just be an accident but Loughlin's personal investigation prevents her from getting closure. Later she has good personal reasons to appreciate Loughlin's doggedness.

A bit graphic at times, but a good mystery from Hallmark people.

8 / 10


Well another fine performance by the "Dick Tracy" of antiques and her own second hand store Jennifer Shannon ( Lori Loughlin). This particular version includes a piece of missing art that is worth a small fortune and the discovery of a dead woman in her garage attic.

Mrs. Shullivan and I especially like the side stories that are usually included in the mystery series and this episode has Jennifer's husband's Jason Shannon (Steve Bacic) birthday coming up and the birthday surprise was a nice ending to a good mystery story which was worthy of a watch on it's own.

Lori Loughlin is a fine actress blending sufficient detective skills, personality and empathy for the people directly affected by the mysterious death. I give this episode a superb 8 out of 10 rating.

Garage Sale Mystery: The Art of Murder

5/10 - not much else to say except this Garage Sale Mystery was just not as engaging as they usually are

7 / 10

Just as good as the others.

Similarly, worth the watch. A slight mystery twist. Nothing mindblowing but a fun watch.

10 / 10

Great series, with a great ensemble cast and story lines.

I absolutely love Hallmark movies and this series is really great.

I think they have a great ensemble cast and they always find an interesting story line to play with.

Sure, it might be a tad predictable, but the movie still keeps us interested the whole way through.

The flow and feel of this movie and all the other ones before from the Garage Sale Mystery series is quite good.

With all the darker stuff out there these days, I really appreciate that they manage to keep it clean and not too gloomy, even though it is a murder mystery series.

Lori Laughlin is great in this role and so are the rest of the supporting cast.

I truly hope they keep making more of these!
