Gourmet Detective: A Healthy Place to Die full movie review - decent mystery
The Gourmet Detective mysteries are, so far, pretty good, and better than the other Hallmark series.
This time, Maggie (Brooke Burns) is due for a vacation, so her boss sends her off with Henry(Dylan Neal) to a fabulous spa where a food conference is being held, and Henry is speaking.
Henry sees someone dead in the pool, but by the time he alerts Maggie and they go to the location, the body is gone. And a hated journalist, Kathleen (Lisa Marie DiGiacinto) who showed up uninvited is missing. Several people wanted her gone -- a film star, her agent, a man whose marriage she ruined - it's a long list. It takes a while for the body to re-appear, but it does and Maggie and Henry find themselves investigating another murder.
Granted the sparring between the two leads is not as acidic this time around, but I still am having trouble with the Brooke Burns character. She has a real edge and as far as I'm concerned, she's not warming up the camera. It's possible as the series goes on, the two will find their rhythm.
