Hailey Dean Mysteries: A Will to Kill – Review
Hailey Dean Mysteries: A Will to Kill – HMM – 2 hours and 0 minutes
While reconciling her past and looking into Will’s murder, Hailey is intrigued by a missing classmate named Emma. She was last seen the night Will died. As a college news reporter, Emma has a list of enemies. And her personal life wasn’t easier. While Hailey barely knew her, she believes there is a connection between Emma’s disappearance and Will’s murder. Hailey has her doubts about the case until a fake social media account appears, a mystery cousin was spotted the day after the disappearance, and she is almost run over. Hailey knows this means she is close to solving Emma’s case but is she close to solving Will’s.
Based on the Hailey Dean Mysteries by Nancy Grace, this will finally answer the question Hailey Dean fans have had since episode 1. But don’t worry. This isn’t the end of the series. With this good mystery, you also get a fun subplot about Fincher relationship and his strong ties to Hailey. While this is a good story, it’s not the strongest mystery. This final part of a three-part episode had fans predicting perpetrators since the first part. And your prediction was probably right. So watch this movie for the “why” not the “who”.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars
But I like you for you. Not for the things we do together – Hailey
For what its worth Hailey, I am proud of you no matter what happens – Jonas
I promise not to be afraid of you – Clyde
The Wrong Son – Review
The Wrong Son – Lifetime – 2 hours and 2 minutes
A fun family day at the beach ends in a panic when Sara and Jake heard their son Ian screaming for his brother Matt. Decades later the family believes Matt was swept at sea. And the feelings of lost come back during Ian’s wedding, especially since his father Jake died a few weeks prior in a car accident. After learning the will is to be split between Ian and Sara, she finds a young man on her front lawn. He tells her he is Matt and he came to find his real mom. He explains he was found ashore after suffering a seizure, put into foster care, and then adopted. His adoptive parents finally told him the truth and he came looking for her. Now he is ready to reconnect and be a part of the family. While Sara is accepting, Ian is cautious. But Matt isn’t the only family member with a secret.
Slow build up, strong climax, with a lackluster ending. You know something is off about Matt but you are not sure why he is in their lives. As the plan reveals itself, it seems so ordinary. There is one big reveal but it just isn’t wow enough after several murders. While this movie answers every question you have about its characters, you don’t need to cancel plans to watch it.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars

It’s a lot right now but I’m managing – Sara

Love At First Dance – Review
Love At First Dance – Hallmark – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Hope is a free-spirited dance instructor at DanceTopia. While she teaches children, she also helps couples prepare for the first dance at their wedding.

To make the wedding smoother Adriana and Eric’s overbearing mothers sign them up for dance class. With Hope. As Hope and Eric work together, they confide in each other and connect.
The love story has a steady pace to allow you to believe the love is real. And the divide between Eric and Adriana allows you to see the issues without hating Hope for their doomed relationship. This movie follows the Hallmark formula to a tee, so you watch it for character development and the jokes. The mother’s meddling will have you yelling at the screen but the wisdom of Eric’s father will bring you joy. And don’t forget to spot the Hallmark card!

Stalked By My Doctor: Patient’s Revenge – Review
Stalked By My Doctor: Patient’s Revenge – Lifetime – 2 hours and 4 minutes
Dr. Beck was acquitted of all charges against him for the kidnapping and attempted murder of Sophie. He can’t practice medicine but was hired as a professor at Southeastern Arizona University (SAU). While his conscience tells him to ignore the young students in his class, he constantly fantasizes about them. He hopes he can start a new life but old habits die hard when he meets an eager student named Melissa. Meanwhile, in LA, Sophie still has the nightmares of her ordeal and can’t believe the jury didn’t send Dr. Beck to jail. Her parents hope college will be a new start but she has other plans. She lied to her parents about attending a local school and will be attending SAU. She plans to make Dr. Beck’s life a living nightmare.
The third movie in the Stalked by My Doctor series, this movie ups the crazy factor. It adds a subconscious, murder, and explosion. With a plot straight from of the ID channel, Melissa takes “ride or die chick” to a whole new level. While watching this movie, you worry about Sophie. Not as a victim but a perpetrator. She gets closer to getting arrested, expelled, or locked in a mental institution each time she goes after Dr. Beck. If you are a fan of this series, #3 will not disappoint. However, new fans should watch #1 before seeing #3. #2 is not necessary.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars
You said you’d love me no matter what I told you – Dr. Beck
Watch me – Sophie
That is so generous of you – Melissa
Hailey Dean: A Marriage Made for Murder – Review
Hailey Dean: A Marriage Made for Murder – HMM – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Well-respected art dealer Victor dies to leave behind an angry artist and a disconnected wife Christy. It’s not until Hailey hears Christy arguing over the phone that she starts to look into his death. Hailey learns the insurance company will not release the payment to Christy until they have a death certificate. So she goes to her boyfriend Jonas to get the certificate. Jonas finds out the nurse wanted an autopsy and the files are missing, so a certificate cannot be created. When Hailey goes to Christy to ask her to request Victor’s body be exhumed for an autopsy. Christy hands Hailey Victor’s ashes. Jonas looks through the ashes and finds a bone fragment. A fragment is loaded with arsenic. Victor’s death is now a murder. And by the end of this investigation, Hailey has to decide if she should do the right thing or follow the law.
Based on the Nancy Grace’s Hailey Dean novels, this addition fits in perfectly with the rest of the movies (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). While this 3 part series of movies focus on Hailey finding out who killed her fiance, each character has his or her own arc of growth. The bonds between each character grow stronger as you learn how deeply they cared for one another. And you will get a compelling mystery to boot. It comes down to the ultimate question of ethics for Hailey. What would you choose: Right or Law?
I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

The Perfect Bride: Wedding Bells – Review
The Perfect Bride: Wedding Bells – Hallmark – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Molly has been giving her bridal boot camp for years at the local gym. But she wants to open her gym of her own. She is ready to take the next step in her career. While she makes advancements, Nick has switched from wedding photographer to gallery artist. His photos will be admired by all. With everything going on the right track, Nick gets on one knee and ask Molly to marry him. Without a second breath, she says yes. The two are happy to start planning their wedding until a mistake gives them only a few weeks to get everything together. And if things can’t get harder for Molly, she learns the only person who wants to invest in her new gym is Stephen. The man that left her at the altar. She must navigate a bumpy present and a messy past while advancing her career. Will Nick and Molly make it down the aisle?
The Perfect Bride will make your head spend in this new edition. Often, Molly has fixed the lives of others while ignoring her past issues. While she and Nick have talked about marriage, it hasn’t been at the forefront of any movie in the past. Now, the past and present will collide for long awaiting fans. While this does have its funny moments, it reaches a plateau and fails to entertain. It takes the focus off of the wedding planning and puts it all in Molly’s relationship with her ex. It feels as if the writers are trying to make him a major character. Molly’s past relationship should be just that, the past. Hopefully, this is the last of Stephen’s storyline.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars
Where’s Steven – Molly
Wow this guy sound really good looking. I should meet him sometime – Nick
Venue? Molly, I know you better than that – Stephen
