Meanwhile, Grace (Teryl Rothery) spends more time with her old crush, Olivia's brother, Will (guest star Cameron Bancroft), who confides a deep secret in her that could change the terms of their relationship. On the other hand, Olivia's and Grace's daughters begin to plan their futures with Justine (Sarah Smyth) and Seth (Corey Sevier) taking their relationship to the next level while Maryellen (Elyse Levesque) realizes she should take things slow with John Bowman (guest star Charlie Carrick).

Jennifer Shannon is a career garage sale hunter and a pro at finding diamonds in the rough in Hallmark Channel original movie, "Garage Sale Mystery". Whether it's a new antique to sell at her consignment shop, an Atari game for her son or a piece of furniture for her handy husband Jason (Ravanello) to refurbish, she has made a career out of her treasure hunting prowess. When a string of burglaries hits her town, Jennifer's keen eye for detail and her natural problem solving instincts help her see the connection between these burglaries and local garage sales. Stars Lori Laughlin and Andrew Dunbar.
