Trouble & Joy

Aurora (Candace Cameron Bure - Journey Back to Christmas) and Martin (Yannick Bisson - My Mother's Secret) get an unexpected visitor when Martin's niece shows up at their home with her baby having not been in contact for quite some time. But when Aurora and Martin return home from one of the town's regular events they discover the niece's husband's dead body on their porch and the niece has disappeared. But she also left the baby behind which leaves Martin and Aurora not only finding themselves holding the baby but also a mystery to solve.

In all these "Aurora Teagarden" movies you basically get two things; of course there is a mystery to be solved and secondly the continuation of character stories. It is actually the second of those which is more important than the mystery. As such in "A Bundle of Trouble: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" we have John's on going attempts to convince Aurora's mum to marry him, we also get Aurora's slightly awkward friendship with Lynn, the local detective, and her husband Arthur. Plus of course we have Aurora and Martin with plenty of "A Bundle of Trouble: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" focusing on the humour of them dealing with a baby with neither having any parental experiences. It is light hearted fun which is pretty standard but works well to grow their characters.

Then of course we have the mystery which kicks off with not just a dead body on the porch but a missing person, an abandoned baby and then later on the discovery of a guy stuffed in the closet. As the story unfolds and the plot thickens we begin to wonder whether the baby is in fact stolen with Martin unable to believe that his niece would have stolen a baby. I won't go in to any more detail other than to say that "A Bundle of Trouble: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" is as usual not difficult to follow but kind of comically convoluted at the same time.

What this all boils down to is that if you have enjoyed the other movies in the "Aurora Teagarden Mystery" series you are likely going to enjoy "A Bundle of Trouble: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" as it is easy to watch entertainment which grows the characters and their relationships.
