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.
