The Full Aurora
With her mother, Aida (Marilu Henner - Hitched for the Holidays), running late Aurora (Candace Cameron Bure - Let It Snow) agrees to show the mysterious and charming Martin Bartell (Yannick Bisson - My Mother's Secret) around a property. But Martin's flirtations with Aurora come to an abrupt stop when they discover the dead body of a realtor. With Aurora calling in the discovery, Det. Lynn Liggett Smith (Miranda Frigon - A Cookie Cutter Christmas) is less than happy to see the murder mystery librarian at the crime scene as she knows Aurora will stage her own investigation, especially as somehow the key to the property, which the realtor had used, made it back to Aida's realtor office after she was killed.
Could you imagine being a friend with Aurora Teagarden? I actually think it would be seriously trying with just the slightest thing out of the ordinary causing her suspicions to be raised whilst everyone other than her closest friends seem to automatically become suspects. But that is part of the fun of "Three Bedrooms, One Corpse: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" as the minute there is a murder she turns super obsessed in solving the mystery and getting to the bottom of who is guilty, rubbing people up the wrong way. As her friend says, Aurora is like a dog with a bone especially in this particular Hallmark mystery movie.
Now alongside Candace Cameron Bure giving us what can only be called "The Full Aurora" we have all the other regular bits as well with Det. Lynn less than happy about Aurora's amateur sleuthing. And of course there is Aurora's mum, Aida, who whilst dealing with the fact her team of realtors are now suspects in a murder case also has time to do some match making between Aurora and Martin. Now I could go on because "Three Bedrooms, One Corpse: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" firmly fits in to this series of amateur detective movies and more importantly keeps you wondering who the killer is, although truthfully you half expect the answer to be plucked out of the air at the end of the movie.
What this all boils down to is that "Three Bedrooms, One Corpse: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" sticks to the "Aurora Teagarden" formula which has been set out in the previous movies which means more of a humorous tone to things rather than actual crime solving which if you have enjoyed the previous movies you are likely to enjoy this one as well.
