“Professor Amy Winslow (Jill Wagner) and police detective Travis Burke (Kristoffer Polaha) plan to go on their first date. New research from young writer Ella Quincy leads Amy to reconsider the conviction of former colleague Mac McKinnon.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s a low intensity murder mystery from Hallmark. I like the whodunnit aspect but the tension is never that high. There isnu0026#39;t much danger and there are no thrills. The one moment of danger is suppressed with the police car in the background to maintain the sceneu0026#39;s safe feeling. The climatic fight has a scrawny nerd going up against the duo and they have the gun. I still like the easy partnership of Wagner and Polaha. Itu0026#39;s just not that exciting which is par for the course with Hallmark.”
