Highlights for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries - April 2015!

Actress Candace Cameron Bure stars as librarian and sleuth Aurora Teagarden

[via press release from the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel]


A Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Original World Premiere
Saturday, April 4 (9 p.m. ET/PT, 8C)
Starring: Candace Cameron Bure, Marilu Henner, Lexa Doig, Bruce Dawson, Peter Benson, Sonya Salomaa, Dan Payne, Miranda Frigon, Stephen Huszar

Based on the books by #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris

For the first time in our TV history, an opportunity so startlingly impressive, it will take two networks together to launch it! A first time ever World Premiere on both HALLMARK MOVIES & MYSTERIES and HALLMARK CHANNEL - “A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery,” is based on the books by #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris and stars Candace Cameron Bure and five-time Golden Globe® nominee Marilu Henner. Future installments of ‘AURORA TEAGARDEN’ will be seen exclusively on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

A librarian with a sharp mind for murder, Aurora Teagarden is known around her small town as a master sleuth. When her friend Jane unexpectedly dies and leaves Aurora everything in her will, she also leaves a troubling murder mystery haunting her neighborhood. It is up to Aurora to piece together the clues—including a skull, its missing skeleton and a suspicious group of neighbors—and solve the murder before she becomes the unlikely killer’s next victim.

Lori Loughlin stars as antique dealer, garage sale shopper,
and amateur sleuth Jennifer Shannon.

Lori Loughlin, Sarah Strange, Steve Bacic, Brendan Meyer
Lori Loughlin is back on the case as a sleuthing garage sale maven who suspects foul play when her friend dies in an old house with a cursed reputation. Even though police evidence - and even webcam footage of the death – point to natural causes – this mysterious death in a “cursed” home poised for multi-million dollar sale seems too coincidental.  Putting her keen instincts to work, she examines a few key suspects.  As she digs into this deadly mystery, she uncovers clues that bring her closer to the truth, and even put her own life in danger.

Kellie Martin stars as photographer, mystery bookstore owner, and amateur sleuth.

Premiering this Weekend on TV... 2 weeks before Easter!

The first day of Spring has come this week and Easter Sunday is on it's way! I'm sure you've seen the commercials and stores filled with baskets, bunnies, and candy; however, in honor of this upcoming holy holiday, this Sunday UP-TV will have the premiere of...

Premieres Sunday March 22, 2015
at 7 PM/6c. on UP-TV
Additional Airings:
March 22, 2015 at 9 PM/8c. & 11PM/10c.
March 27, 2015 at 9 PM/8c. & 11PM/10c. 
March 29, 2015 at 5 PM/4c.

via UP-TV: The UP Premiere Movie "Noah's Ark," is a retelling of the biblical story of Noah and The Ark. Noah, a farmer and family man, is instructed by an angel to build an ark in the middle of a desert in order to save both his family and the faithful from a devastating flood. A seemingly impossible task, especially when his sons refuse to believe him and help, Noah risks ridicule and humiliation from the degenerate townsfolk as well as his loving but exasperated family, in his quest to carry out his God-given task. Co-produced with the BBC, "Noah's Ark" is a timeless tale; a story of family and faith; about one man's belief and fixation with building the ark which will ultimately save his family and mankind. It is an obsession which leads to the fragmentation of his family, a test of their faith in their father and their father’s faith in God and everything he believes in.

For additional details on Noak's Ark, see:

Also this weekend, the Hallmark Channel will have the cable premiere of...

Premieres Saturday March 21, 2015
at 9PM/8c on the Hallmark Channel

Please note: This movie was first released on DVD in 2012, but this will be it's first premiere on TV. The DVD of 'The Chateau Meroux' is rated 'PG-13', however, I noticed it is has a television rating of 'TV-PG'. Whether or not, it has been edited for TV, I do not know... but, I did want to caution that many of the reviews on Amazon, say this movie contains many "awkward sexual jokes and innuendos". I wanted to be certain you were all aware of this before watching. You can see reviews on

Storyline: Big city girl Wendy moves to Napa Valley after inheriting her father's struggling winery and soon falls in love with both the business and local boy Chris. But things get complicated when she learns that Chris is the son of her chief competitor.

See my page on The Chateau Meroux for more details.

Whether you watch a movie...
a basketball game...
or simply just enjoy these first few days of Spring...
I hope you all have a Wonderful Weekend!

God Bless, Net

'DO YOU BELIEVE?' arrives in Theaters Today!

An incredibly powerful movie
from the studio that brought you GOD’S NOT DEAD.

This faith based movie will have everyone talking
and asking DO YOU BELIEVE?


Storyline via 'Do You Believe?' official site -- "A dozen different souls—all moving in different directions, all longing for something more. As their lives unexpectedly intersect, they each are about to discover there is power in the Cross of Christ … even if they don't believe it. Yet.

When a local pastor is shaken to the core by the visible faith of an old street-corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a faith-fueled journey that powerfully impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate."
