Aurora's Bone Shaker

Candace Cameron Bure in Aurora Teagarden Mystery: A Bone to Pick (2015)

Librarian and lover of a good murder mystery, Aurora Teagarden (Candace Cameron Bure) finds her world turned up side down when Jane (Barbara Wallace), another lover of murder mysteries, passes away and leaves Aurora everything, her home and a substantial amount of money. But it seems Aurora may have inherited something else as when she goes to the house she finds someone has broken in and has searched the place for something sizeable. When she finds a skull hidden within a window seat it starts her investigations in to whose skull it is, where the rest of the body is and why Jane had the skull hidden. To make matters worse Aurora's ex boyfriend and his pregnant wife have moved in to the house opposite the one she has inherited.

"You don't play finders keepers with a skull Roe, you give it to the police", that is what a friend of Aurora's tells her and that is of course what any body in their right mind would do especially when the skull was found in a house which had just been burgled. But of course that doesn't happen because if it did, well of course we wouldn't have a movie to watch but look even though I love these Hallmark amateur detective movies I find the fact that Aurora still goes ahead and starts snooping is too ridiculous.

Anyway, ignoring the ridiculous set up of "Aurora Teagarden Mystery: A Bone to Pick" well to be frank we have a by the numbers murder mystery. We watch Aurora snoop around, look over her shoulders as she is worried a lot, finds sometime to go on a date where she is jumpy and so on and so forth until like Scooby Doo's Thelma she unlocks the riddle of the skull which has a smashed in head. It is once again the likeable nature of Candace Cameron Bure more than anything else which makes this entertaining rather than the actual mystery which Aurora solves.

What this all boils down to is that "Aurora Teagarden Mystery: A Bone to Pick" is a fun little piece of afternoon TV movie entertainment for those looking for something easy to watch. But with there being so many amateur detective murder mystery movies at the moment this one fails to stand out from the crowd.
