[via press release from The Hallmark Channel]


Sarah Strange, Steve Bacic and Kevin O'Grady Co-Star

STUDIO CITY, CA - July 24, 2017 - Jennifer Shannon (Lori Loughlin) discovers not only does she have a knack for finding garage sale treasures but that these found treasures also lead to foul play. Follow the clues with Jennifer (Loughlin) as Hallmark Movies & Mysteries uncovers four new original mysteries. The network's highly-rated "Garage Sale Mystery" series becomes a limited series every Sunday in August starring Lori Loughlin ("When Calls the Heart," "Fuller House"), Sarah Strange ("Men in Trees," "Life as We Know It,"), Steve Bacic ("When Calls the Heart"), Eva Bourne ("When Calls the Heart") and Kevin O'Grady ("You Me Her").

"Garage Sale Mystery: The Beach Murder," Premieres Sunday, August 6 (9 pm ET/PT)

Jennifer Shannon (Loughlin) knows to snap up a weathered 60s surfboard on behalf of her client Anne Winters (Chiara Zanni), whose entrepreneur husband Steve (David Paetkau) hits the waves every chance he gets. When Steve's wet-suited body is discovered on a secluded beach, circumstances indicate an accidental drowning. Yet from the beginning, Jennifer notices incongruous details that suggest a different cause of death: murder. As she closes in on the mystery of just how Steve was killed and by whom, Jennifer is herself wading into dangerous waters.

"Garage Sale Mystery: Murder by Text," Premieres Sunday, August 13, (9pm ET/PT)

Jennifer Shannon's (Loughlin) new client is bass player Lita Merrill (Emily Tennant), who consigns some collectible tour jackets at Rags to Riches before going on the road with country singer John Dalton (Kurt Teixeira). A few hours before the band is set to take the stage for their first show, Lita quits the band via a cryptic text message. Her words take on grim significance when she is found dead in her living room. There are no signs of foul play, but the official verdict of suicide doesn't sit right with Jennifer. Unable to shake the idea that Lita's suicide was staged, Jennifer embarks on a solo investigation that yields tantalizing clues, a cleverly executed crime and, ultimately, a cold-blooded killer.

"Garage Sale Mystery: Murder Most Medieval," Premieres Sunday, August 20, (9pm ET/PT)

Jennifer Shannon (Loughlin) buys a replica 15th Century suit of armor for a wealthy client whose hobby is taking part in epic battle reenactments dressed as a Medieval Knight. Soon after, Jennifer discovers the dead body of a Medieval history professor from the local college hidden in the armor - still clutching the bloody antique mace used to kill him. The prime suspect is a disgruntled student athlete, worried that his failing grade in history will keep him out of the pro-football draft. Clues further implicating the young athlete arrive by mail, but before Jennifer can resolve the case, the history professor's beautiful teaching assistant becomes the next victim. As Jennifer's murder suspects narrow down even further, she finds herself caught in the killer's web of dangerous lies. Will Jennifer's own Knight in Shining Armor be brave and valiant enough to save her?

"Garage Sale Mystery: A Cast of Murder," Premieres Sunday, August 27, (9pm ET/PT)

Jennifer Shannon (Loughlin) buys an old reel to reel recorder only to find that when she plays the audio tape, she discovers the recording of a violent struggle and a man's voice pleading for his life. She learns that the former owner of the recorder is a retired therapist who held weekly group sessions on coping with romantic relationships. When Jennifer tries to track down the therapist, she unexpectedly finds him murdered in the apartment of one of his former female students -a student who hasn't been seen for several days. Jennifer's investigation introduces her to other members of the therapy sessions; whose love lives are more entangled than she was first led to believe. After the missing female student is brutally murdered, Jennifer's suspicions fall on other members of the therapy group.
