Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Lifelong mystery buff Samantha Kinsey (Kellie Martin) is thrilled when she inherits a bookstore that sells only "whodunits." Among the thousands of authors in this field, Samantha's personal idol is Professor Jack Stenning (Robert Wagner), a mystery writer who solves real crimes as a hobby. When Stenning is found hanged in his study, all evidence points to suicide, and the police are inclined to mark the case closed. But Samantha isn't so easily convinced, especially since Stenning was just about to publish an expose of a long-unsolved murder. Aided by her attorney friend Cassie Thomas (Constance Zimmer) -- not to mention her vast library of books -- Samantha sets about to solve the mystery of Stenning's murder all by herself. Made for cable TV with the words "series pilot" all but emblazoned on the opening credits, Mystery Woman first aired August 31, 2003, on the Hallmark Channel.
