Murder, She Baked: A Peach Cobbler Mystery full movie review - Hannah finds another body
In "Murder, She Baked: A Peach Cobbler Mystery," Hannah (Alison Sweeney) has decided she is more attracted to Detective Mike Kingston (Cameron Mathison) than the dentist Norman Rhodes. Norman i ready for a commitment, but recent widower Mike is not. Hannah hasn't told either man how she feels.
She wonders if she has made the right decision when Melanie Quinn, a college friend of Mike's, opens a bakery across the street from Hannah's bakery! And she sees Mike exiting it.
Melanie's sister Valerie is heavily promoting the bakery, and Hannah is losing some business. Apparently, Melanie makes one helluva peach cobbler, too. Hannah tries her hand at one, which is better than Melanie's, so she's asked to bring some to a wedding. There's something familiar about Melanie's cobbler - Hannah realizes it's frozen and sold at the grocery store.
After a debacle, Melanie comes to Hannah, admitting she can't bake and asking for help with the peach cobbler for the wedding. Hannah helps and leaves Melanie with baking instructions and gets ready for the wedding. Melanie never appears.
That night, going by Melanie's bakery, Hannah sees the lights on. Inside she finds Melanie's dead body. And she also finds herself a suspect in Melanie's murder.
In order to clear her, everyone joins in the investigation into the murder to find the true killer. Since Mike is on the police force and told to stay away from her, Hannah leans heavily on Norman.
As usual this was a pleasant mystery with attractive stars. It's no great shakes since Hallmark is a family channel and aims for a kind of banal entertainment. However, this series has warmth and likability.
