fun lady detective, with books

Actress Kellie Martin makes her TV directorial debut on this fun detective series, after the 2004 short film Frenching. I hadn't noticed this series before, not being a big Hallmark Channel watcher, but I was intrigued by the book angle. The Mystery Woman series is part of revolving trio of detectives shows that fill a two hour time slot. I haven't seen any of the others, but I think two hours is a great time period, lots of room for stuff to happen, room to flesh out the story. I enjoyed the fun interplay between the main group of characters, played by Kellie Martin, Nina Siemaszko, Casey Sander, and Clarence Williams III. In Vision of Murder Kellie and Nina visit a spa so Kellie, who's also a photographer, can take pictures for their new brochure. At least these writers know it's really hard to make a living from just selling books. These are all good actors, and everyone does a good job bringing their characters to life. Nothing new or strikingly original about the show, it kind of reminded me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, without the fighting or monsters, and if Buffy was about 30. In a bookstore rather than a library, Kelly spearheads the chase, Clarence does the research, Assistant DA Nina is the law-talking' gal, with Casey as the cynical chief of police. Puzzles to solve, lots of computer work,and lots and lots of talking but not much action, get the bad guy caught, after a smidge of suspense. There is some book talk, Clarence telling a possibly psychic woman about some fictional psychic detectives. It's nice to encourage book reading. Watch a movie, read a book, that's my motto, and this low throttle thriller has people talking about books, so what's not to like. A good solid piece of entertainment, nicely directed.

Bookstore she owns, murder she investigates

Kellie Martin's Mystery woman series runs on Hallmark, and this is one of the better installments. She (a book store owner) and her friend Cassie (a district attorney) take time off to attend a health spa joint that employs some controversial off beat quackery methods to help patrons attain beauty. (When you see Sam and Cassie, you'll wonder why they feel they need to improve anything, but I digress.) A girl dies mysteriously at the spa. And so amateur sleuth Sam is on the case, with Cassie right beside her. Suspects are too few in number, but the course of the story makes this TV film a nice diversion. Kellie Martin's spunky character is somewhere between Murder She Wrote and Columbo, although she's more spunky than Jessica and not nearly as eccentric as the cigar smoking Lt. Columbo. Cassie makes a good counterpoint, being more down to Earth, but just as determined to catch the killer. When spa attendees start to get sick, the situation intensifies. Not bad at all for an evening in, if you like the easy-going light hearted pace used here. Martin and her co-stars brighten things up, and there's a nice mix of interesting personalities in this one.

a somewhat more sprightly entry into the series

Kellie Martin directed this "Mystery Woman" episode, in which she and her friend Cassie go to a spa, the Martin character to take photos for a brochure and Cassie to be the customer photographed. While there, they encounter a psychic, who leads them to a dead body. And we're off, with Mystery Woman in the middle of murder once again. Charles Shaughnessy, best known from "The Nanny," was one of the guest stars, but he didn't have a tremendous amount to do. The show had a little more energy than usual under Martin's direction, though Clarence Williams III as Philby is as introverted as ever. I just wish the Mystery Woman Bookshop had some customers. In this episode, they had none.
