[adrotate banner=”7″]Hallmark Movies & Mysteries is in the business of kickstarting new mystery movie franchises starring alumni from Full House because they are ratings gold, and 2015 is a big year in new series starting up. Thus, we’re getting the Aurora Teagarden series, which as all literary fans know is written by Charlaine Harris, who wrote the Southern Vampire Mystery series that True Blood is based on! A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery is the first of what will probably be at least three of the films, the actual details are a bit hazy and will probably alter based on ratings.
A librarian with a sharp mind for murder, Aurora Teagarden is known around her small town as a master sleuth. When her friend Jane unexpectedly dies and leaves Aurora everything in her will, she also leaves a troubling murder mystery haunting her neighborhood. It is up to Aurora to piece together the clues—-including a skull, its missing skeleton and a suspicious group of neighbors—-and solve the murder before she becomes the unlikely killer’s next victim.
A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery stars Candace Cameron-Bure (Full House) as Aurora Teagarden, Lexa Doig (Jason X) as Sally, Marilu Henner (Taxi) as Aida, Bruce Dawson (Hollow Man II) as John, Peter Benson (Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins’ Ball ) as Arthur, Sonya Salomaa (MXP: Most Xtreme Primate) as Marcia Rideout, Dan Payne (A Christmas Story 2) as Torrance Rideout, Miranda Frigon (A Cookie Cutter Christmas) as Lynn Liggett, and Stephen Huszar (12 Men of Christmas) as Father Scott Aubrey. It’s directed by Martin Wood (Goodnight for Justice: Queen of Hearts) and the adapted by Teena Booth (The Grim Sleeper).
A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery premieres April 4th on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries!
