The Julius House: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery full movie review - "Seems even sweet old ladies find you and your questions irritating."
Another enjoyable if not particularly riveting Aurora Teagarden mystery starring Candace Cameron Bure. This time Aurora buys a house that, of course, has a history that involves murder.
I tend to enjoy the movies in this series more for the lighthearted fun aspects than the mysteries themselves, which are never anything special. This one has a Scooby Doo "I would've gotten away with it if it weren't for you darn kids" type of ending that amused me. I like this Aurora movie more than the last one largely because Lexa Doig and Marilu Henner get more to do. They're both great assets to this series but are often underutilized. For her part, Candace is likable as always. The worst part of the whole thing is the love interest, a former CIA agent played by Yannick Bisson. He wears eyeliner and spray tan and is really just annoying enough to make me want to turn the whole thing off, which says a lot considering how much I enjoy Candace, Lexa, and Marilu. He's the third love interest in the series but the first to appear in consecutive entries. I hope this doesn't mean he's "the one" because, frankly, he's terrible. Hallmark, if there are any more Aurora movies to be made, please kill him off or have him go manage a boy band. He's stinking up the joint.
