Hallmark Mysteries and....Lemony Snicket?

Wanted to let you know there are two new mysteries on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries.

Garage Sale Mystery: Art of Murder with Lori Laughlin started Sunday 1/8/17 BUT it is showing again Friday 1/13/17 at 8 p.m. CST.

Garage Sale Mystery: The Deadly Room (2015)

A brand new series starts Sunday, 1/15/17 at 8 p.m. CST.

Framed for Murder: A Fixer Upper Mystery starring Jewel (the singer? yes)  and Colin Ferguson.


This new series is based on the Fixer Upper book series by Kate Carlisle. Here is what I found out about it:

"The “Fixer Upper Mysteries” movies are based upon New York Times bestselling author Kate Carlisle’s novels. In the small resort town of Lighthouse Cove, everyone knows that the best man for the job is a woman. And that woman is Shannon Hughes (Jewel), owner of Hughes Restoration and an expert in Victorian home restoration. Through her work, she stumbles across clues hidden in the old homes, uncovering past secrets and becoming an unlikely sleuth to crack unsolved mysteries.
In “Framed for Murder: A Fixer-Upper Mystery,” the premiere movie in the franchise, Shannon Hughes, gets a partner in crime-solving when her new client offers to help hammer out the details of her friend and neighbor’s untimely death. "

I have watched all the Hallmark mysteries on Movies and Mysteries and liked all of them.

Lemony Snicket. A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Did you read the book series several years ago? Looks like a children's series but may not want your children to read it? Not young children anyway. There was a movie with Jim Carey playing Count Olaf. I found the books to have quite a wry sense of humor and loved them. And I saw the movie.

Netflix has produced an 8 episode series which will be available January 13th.

This is from MSN and will give you an idea of what the stories are like. I find it hysterical.

"With a lugubrious whimsy that becomes characteristic, Netflix’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” starts by going to great, ironic lengths to convince the viewer to not watch the show. Narrator Lemony Snicket (Patrick Warburton), who wanders in and out of scenes like a melancholy Rod Serling, begins the series with a long, odd disclaimer that is part comedy, part tragedy. The theme song’s chorus is simply “Look away!” repeated over scenes of the perils the main characters have encountered. Lead Neil Patrick Harris, who plays the villainous Count Olaf, brazenly breaks the fourth wall to comment on the poor quality of streaming television drama. And periodically, just to remind the viewer what they’re in for, Warburton’s Snicket returns to re-up his warning: “Hello, my name is Lemony Snicket, and I am sorry to say that the alleged entertainment you are watching is extremely unpleasant.”
