A Bundle of Trouble: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery Photos & Synopsis

The next installment in Hallmark Movies & Mysteries series of Aurora Teagarden premieres Sunday, May 21, and at first it had us a little confused.

Titled “A Bundle of Trouble”, we were racking our brains for memories of a novel by that name. Then we checked online. Nope, there is no Aurora Teagarden novel titled “A Bundle of Trouble.” Could this be the first original Aurora Teagarden movie? But enlightenment arrived when we read the official synopsis for this movie:

Librarian and passionate mystery fan Aurora Teagarden (Candace Cameron Bure) can’t seem to avoid murder no matter how hard she tries and this time the dead man shows up right on her front porch. After agreeing to host her beau Martin’s long-lost niece and her newborn for the night, trouble begins almost immediately when the girl disappears, the baby is found hidden in the bathtub, and Aurora discovers a stranger in her linen closet, along with $10,000 cash in a diaper bag. With her usual determination, Roe sets out to crack the case, this time while playing surrogate mother to a mysteriously abandoned two-week old, and trying to avoid the ire of Lawrenceton’s new police chief.

Martin’s niece? An abandoned newborn? Random cash in the diaper bag? That all sounded familiar. In fact, this movie is an adaptation of A Fool and His Honey, the sixth novel in the Aurora Teagarden series. So get ready for Roe (Candace Cameron Bure) and Martin (Yannick Bisson) as psuedo-parents as they try to solve the latest murder to strike their small town.

A Bundle of Trouble: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery premieres Sunday, May 21 at 9/8c on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

New Aurora Teagarden Mystery Novel Coming in October!

Charlaine Harris is returning to her mystery roots with the first new Aurora Teagarden novel in more than a decade! All the Little Liars, the ninth book in the Aurora Teagarden series, is due October 4, 2016. (Click here to pre-order.)

Official Synopsis

AlltheLittleLiars_coverAurora Teagarden is basking in the news of her pregnancy when disaster strikes her small Georgia town: four kids vanish from the school soccer field in an afternoon. Aurora’s 15-year-old brother Phillip is one of them. Also gone are two of his friends, and an 11-year-old girl who was just hoping to get a ride home from soccer practice. And then there’s an even worse discovery—at the kids’ last known destination, a dead body.

While the local police and sheriff’s department comb the county for the missing kids and interview everyone even remotely involved, Aurora and her new husband, true crime writer Robin Crusoe, begin their own investigation. Could the death and kidnappings have anything to do with a group of bullies at the middle school? Is Phillip’s disappearance related to Aurora’s father’s gambling debts? Or is Phillip himself, new to town and an unknown quantity, responsible for taking the other children? But regardless of the reason, as the days go by, the most important questions remain. Are the kids still alive? Who could be concealing them? Where could they be?

With Christmas approaching, Aurora is determined to find her brother…if he’s still alive.
