The Wedding Flowers Mystery

Brennan Elliott and Brooke Shields in Flower Shop Mystery: Dearly Depotted (2016)

As a florist Abby Knight (Brooke Shields) should be happy to be doing the flowers for a wedding, the trouble is that it is her cousin's wedding and she has a habit of backing out of things at the last minute. To make matters worse Abby also has to be a bridesmaid and not only all the other bridesmaids younger than her they are shorter as well which makes her stick out like a sore thumb. But things take a curious turn when a wedding crasher ends up being found murdered and Abby, with the help of Marco (Brennan Elliott), can't help but investigate.

Quick question: how many Hallmark movies have you already watched involving a business owner turning amateur detective to solve a murder? There are a few to choose from be it librarians to cafe owners, in truth maybe a few too many as whilst each has their individual appeal they start getting a little samey. Sadly for me I have never enjoyed the "Flower Shop Mystery" movies as I have others which is a surprise as I am a guy of an age who crushed on Brooke Shields madly as a teenager.

SO what does that mean when it comes to "Flower Shop Mystery: Dearly Depotted"? Well I could say that we have a murder, a lack of one real suspect whilst Abby and Marco play amateur detective to narrow down out of all those with motives till they find out who did it. But truth be told whilst we have the mystery we have the characters and what is more crucial is how much you enjoy Brooke Shields as Abby and Brennan Elliott as Marco and of course there friendly flirtations. And yes they are entertaining in a light hearted manner but the spark isn't there to make the friendly flirtations that much fun as well.

What this all boils down to is that "Flower Shop Mystery: Dearly Depotted" is just another solid Hallmark murder & mystery/ amateur detective movie with a plot which could have been used in any of the other similar TV movies.
