Hallmark Movies & Mysteries breaks out its first franchise with Garage Sale Mystery: All That Glitters, the follow-up to 2013’s first Garage Sale Mystery film. The features follow Jennifer Shannon (Lori Loughlin), who both is an expert garage saler and an expert mystery solver, based on the book series by Suzi Weinert. As all mystery fans know, many of them feature gimmicks and quirks, because that helps them stand out and means that there is so much variation that there will be tales that are bound to appeal to someone! Hallmark Movies & Mysteries is bringing a bunch of these to life, and the Garage Sale Mystery is the first of many many mystery series.

Jennifer Shannon (Lori Loughlin) has a gift for finding rare treasures hidden in garage sales that she can resell at her consignment store, Rags to Riches. But her keen eye for finding valuables also gets her involved in the criminal investigations that happen at the very second-hand sales she frequents. When Jennifer’s friend and self-storage facility owner Martin (Michael Kopsa) turns up murdered just hours after auctioning off an abandoned storage unit full of unique items to Jennifer, she is immediately pulled on the case as a key eyewitness. Working with Detective Lynwood (Kevin O’Grady), Jennifer helps single out a disgruntled customer as the prime suspect, while she and her business partner, Danielle (Sarah Strange), sift through boxes from the auction. As her husband Jason (Steve Bacic) worries about her safety, Jennifer starts to get over her head when there is a break-in at her store and a run-in with Martin’s angry wife. Then, Jennifer and Danielle discover their new merchandise contains the sparkly evidence they needed all along to nail the surprising real culprit. They must race to save a life and put their own on the line. Will they succeed before times runs out?

Garage Sale Mystery: All That Glitters stars Lori Loughlin, Michael Kopsa, Kevin O’Grady, Sarah Strange, and Steve Bacic. It’s directed by actor/director Peter DeLuise (Zapped) and written by Walter Klenhard (Garage Sale Mystery), based on the original novel by Suzi Weinert.

Who knew that garage sales and buying storage lockers was so deadly? No wonder everyone died in the Storage Wars, at least that is my understanding, having never watched the tv show. Nor shall I, with all these new mystery movies to watch!

Garage Sale Mystery: All That Glitters premieres Sunday, October 26, on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

Hallmark’s My Boyfriends’ Dogs is a dog-stealing Runaway Bride!

My Boyfriends Dogs Hallmark

Look, I’m going to need at least 3 more dogs if you want a second date, buddy!


First of all, My Boyfriends’ Dogs is not a typo, she really has multiple dogs from multiple ex-boyfriends! The premise is Baily Daley (cursed with a rhyming name!) is one of those women who conform to whatever their boyfriends want her to be, then freaks out and runs away at the altar, all while gaining a dog from the experience. As this is an all-too-common scenario, it is only fitting that Hallmark made a movie about it! It sounds like the film will be done in anthology format, though there might be a twist ending with an actual not terrible boyfriend. Or maybe another guy who has three cats from three ex-girlfriends. This potential Brady Bunch with animals situation is my ideal conclusion, and I hope to hope that is the outcome. Don’t let me down, Hallmark!

My Boyfriends’ Dogs is based on the book by Dandi Daley Mackall. Gary Goldstein (Beverly Hills 90210) and Jon Maas (12 Men of Christmas) adapted it for Hallmark. Terry Ingram (Chupacabra vs. the Alamo) directs.

The film stars Erika Christensen (Parenthood) as Bailey Daley, Joyce DeWitt, Michael Kopsa, Teryl Rothery, and Emily Holmes (Snakes on a Plane)

My Boyfriends’ Dogs premieres Saturday, October 18th on Hallmark Channel!

Bailey Daley (Erika Christensen) is a hapless young bride who has run away from the altar with not one, but three dogs she adopted from past relationships. Running into a small diner one rainy evening in a soaked wedding dress with her dogs at her feet, Bailey launches into the story of her strange predicament to the restaurant owners, Louie (Michael Kopsa) and Nikki (Joyce DeWitt). She explains that she hasn’t been able to find the right love, always longing for the more loyal, stable companionship she finds in her ex-boyfriends’ canine companions. Against the knowing advice of her mother Dina (Teryl Rothery) and best friend Amber (Emily Holmes), Bailey tries to transform herself into the perfect fit for each new guy she meets. As each relationship ends, Bailey adopts her ex’s dogs, but remains hopelessly single. Will a twist of fate that stormy night lead her to realize that true puppy love happens only after one stops searching for it?
