Amy Winslow (Jill Wagner) teaches crime mystery fiction at a college following her famous father's footsteps. Her student Lacey seems distracted. Lacey's boyfriend Rex has gone missing. Detectives Travis Cole (Kristoffer Polaha) and Tate are investigating the theft of an experimental plant from the college. Claire Tate is Amy's former students. When Lacey also goes missing, the brilliantly deductive Amy sets off to do her own investigating.<br/><br/>This is a Hallmark mystery. I'm not sure if this is going to be a series. These things have a tendency to sprout so that's certainly possible. Wagner and Polaha have passable chemistry. It's not romantic level but could rise up to bantering level if the writing could take a step up. The 'stay-out-of-the-police-investigation' is certainly a tired trope. I'm glad they get over that quickly and calling out the trope themselves. It does show that there are brains behind the writing. They seem to be veteran TV mystery show writers but they can still do better. The production is nothing cinematic but it is Hallmark level. The mystery writing keeps it compelling even at a lower grade level.
