Married to a Murderer – Review
Married to a Murderer – Lifetime – 2 hours and 2 minutes
Emma and Ted are ready to celebrate their engagement with friends and family. But that’s cut short when her husband’s identical twin brother Frank shows up out of the blue. He is back from his trip and wants to reconnect with Ted. At first, Emma is ok with the two establishing a relationship. When Ted goes out of town, Frank starts giving Emma bad vibes as he goes around their home unannounced in the middle of the night. When she shares her feelings with Ted, he finally lets her in on his secret. Frank wasn’t on a trip. He was in a mental institution. Shocked and dismayed by her husband’s lie by omission, Emma decides to help Frank and make him a part of the family. But Frank and Ted have a lot more secrets to hide.
You have to give this one a chance. Even though it starts off slow and Emma makes typical mistakes, this movie slowly cranks up the eerie. As Frank starts fantasizing about Emma and starts acting on them, you will get a chill up your spine. Another great aspect of this movie is its use of real twins. Most have one actor play both parts and it takes away from the scene. But using real twins helps the actors feed off each other’s emotional and physical cues. Plus this movie ends with one big question.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars

Back in town 2 hours and I already ruin your engagement party – Frank

My Little Girl is Gone – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Stephanie stood in front of all her friends at Karaoke and had the man of her dreams Jameson get down on one knee. She and her partner Lila had their handbag line picked up by a major retailer. And her future stepson Shane is starting to warm up to her. Stephanie feels her life is falling into place. However just days before her wedding, she gets a phone call from a disguised voice. The voice describes what her daughter Caitlyn is wearing, says they grabbed her, and if she wants her daughter back, she must not get married. After a few frantic moments, Stephanie finds Caitlyn and breathes a sigh of relief. She brushes off the incident as a sick prank and gets married. While on her honeymoon, she has a hard time relaxing. She is still worried about her daughter. Her fear is realized when she comes back and Caitlyn is gone. The voice calls her again and says she must sell her company and then divorce her husband or Caitlyn will die. Stephanie suspects everyone but has no idea of the danger that waits for her.
This movie is so different from the Lifetime format. It feels like two movies for the price of one. Just when you think the movie has come to an end, you realized you are only halfway through. Also, you believe you know the kidnapper and you are right. But its the “why” that will leave you saying OMG. This movie is the right step to get out of the typical Lifetime movie. It is a good mystery disguised as a drama. Sit back and enjoy it today.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars
I really am. That’s why it’s gonna crush my heart to beat you at this game – Stephanie
It is called the woods honey. Owls, wolves, deer. Also known as wildlife – Jameson

Garage Sale Mysteries: The Mask Murder – HMM – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Dani and Jen are excited to buy storage lockers to fill their store. They find a great locker with rare death masks inside. After a long look around, Jen notices it looks like a store’s inventory. She remembered a man arguing with the manager before the auction. She worries these are his items. But the feeling of worry is put aside when a body is discovered inside another locker next to her’s. Jen is quickly on the case. Jen discovers the victim is Carmen Day. A young, bright student who worked at the storage facility. While delving into her life, Jen realizes that one of the death masks she found in her storage locker looks like Carmen. With lies, videotape, and one sketchy manager, Jen knows she must find Carmen’s killer ASAP.
In true form, Garage Sales Mysteries delivers again. Its hard to figure out a suspect because everyone around Carmen has an ulterior motive and lies constantly. Based on the novels, this movie will keep you guessing and checking off suspects every step of the way (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). And longtime fans will get a hilarious subplot and Dr. Trammel. So put the kids to bed and get ready for another great installment in the Garage Series franchise.
I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

Babysitter’s Nightmare – Review
Babysitter’s Nightmare – Lifetime – 2 hours and 2 minutes
Nurse Daphne is devasted after losing a young patient and her job due to an untouchable doctor’s negligence. Her friend and fellow nurse Kaci overhear a patient was in need of a babysitter with nursing skills. So she mentioned Daphne needed a job. With a part-time, $300 a day job, Daphne says yes. She meets with Toby and his mom to solidify the job. She is instantly taken by the sweet and loving Toby. She wonders why his mother wanted a nurse and Daphne is informed that Toby is diabetic. Her first night goes well but Daphne swears she sees someone. The next few nights will leave several dead and a mother in pain.
This movie is truly creepy. In addition, it has a lead character that has lost their job, been involved with the death of a patient, broke up with her boyfriend, and threaten a co-worker. So it’s hard to tell who to trust. Anyone could be after her for any reason. So this thriller becomes a suspense movie. A breath of fresh air is young Toby. He isn’t bitter, angry, or rude like most kids on Lifetime. He is sweet, charming, and funny. You will instantly fall in love with him. And Kaci is the best friend everyone deserves. Watch this one with some of your lights on.
I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars
It was an honest mistake – Daphne
Like do you want anchovies on your tombstone – Kaci

Olivia’s boyfriend left her stunned. He opened a position to head Olivia’s department and didn’t consider her for the job. She can’t believe that the board of directors is squeezing out anyone connected to Olivia’s late dad, the owner. Now, Olivia wants to give 100% to her business and prove she can make it on her own. Tony is ready to become the youngest cruise director but he must prove himself to the big bosses. If he doesn’t make a good impression during the next cruise, he won’t be promoted. When Olivia and Tony meet they both think the other one needs an attitude adjustment. Tony thinks Olivia is too rigid. Olivia thinks that Tony isn’t following the instruction she provided in a 5-inch binder. It will take Murphy’s Law to bring these two together.
Based on Love on the Lido Deck by Barbara Oliverio, this aquatic romance is funny and easy to watch (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). While you know the ending, there is enough chaos to keep you interested. When Olivia loses her star or Tony loses control over an event, you want to see how they will work through it together. Even with an ex-boyfriend, gorgeous mystery woman, and a best friend aboard, Tony and Olivia work through it together and fall in love.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars
