A Mansion Mystery Murder
Life is never dull for Shannon Hughes (Jewel Kilcher - Ring of Fire) as her friendship to Mac (Colin Ferguson - Every Christmas Has a Story) is starting to evolve into more, she even has his niece, Callie (Lilah Fitzgerald), staying with her whilst also dealing with a renovation project involving an old mansion being turned into homes for the homeless. But it seems that Charles Potter (Gerard Plunkett), the bank manager, is less than happy about a mansion his bank owned being handed over to a charity and he clashes with several people during the first day of the new project. So when Potter is found murdered there are a few suspects from Jim Hopkins (John Cassini - Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Lost Without You) to Officer Tommy Sloane's (Jason Cermak) own sister, Whitney (Tammy Gillis). For Shannon, she can't resist investigating despite her father (Ron Lean) warning her against it.
If you are a fan of Hallmark amateur detective movies I will save you some time and say that you don't need to read this review because "Deadly Deed: A Fixer Upper Mystery" delivers the sort of light hearted crime drama which you get in these Hallmark movies and as such this should entertain. But for those who have never watched one of the many Hallmark amateur detective movies that there are, then what you get in this is a simple crime, Shannon using her skills of observation to try and solve it whilst putting herself in danger. And of course on top of that we not only get to learn a bit more about the main characters who are part of this series but see their relationship progresses. It is simply light weight, inoffensive stuff for those who just want something inoffensive and light weight to watch.
I will say something about "Deadly Deed: A Fixer Upper Mystery" which stuck out for me and sadly not in a good way. Sadly there are far too many actors in this who struggle to deliver lines without either doing so in an awkward and hesitant manner or with over the top facial expressions or mannerisms. It makes it a movie which at times makes you laugh for being wrong.
What this all boils down to is that with "Deadly Deed: A Fixer Upper Mystery" it is a case of it being just another Hallmark amateur detective movie, the sort which for fans will be pleasant light weight entertainment and for non fans probably far too cheesy.
