Holland Roden and Chris McNally have great chemistry and fun banter in this new Hallmark mystery series Tipline Mysteries.

I hope they make more of these because I thoroughly enjoyed watching both Holland Roden and Chris McNally. They were fun and funny, had great chemistry and enjoyable teasing banter. Holland Roden plays an efficient and fast-talking hotel concierge by day and a newspaper tipline operator by night named Maddie. Maddie is enthralled by the local crime and she listens to an app that has an algorithm that compiles all of the local crimes for her. Chris McNally is the newly promoted to detective Detroit police officer Beeks. These two meet when Maddie brings in the cryptic phone call about a planned jewelry heist. With little to no details, it is hard for Beeks to take Maddie seriously. When a jewelry store is actually robbed and a murder occurs, Maddie sets about doing her own investigation...which is somewhat thwarted by Beeks until his boss has then working together thanks to some good instincts on Maddie's part.

This sets up a great partnership and I loved the banter..."detective pawesome" and all. The mystery was decent and I enjoyed the supporting actors...particularly the Captain Nyland (Jill Teed) and the tech savvy Ethan (Riley Davis).

I enjoy Hallmark mysteries with Hannah Swensen's Murder She Baked, Aurora Teagarden Mysteries (the original), and Mystery 101 being my favorites. This is the first one that has given me promise in a long while. This is a strong recommendation from me to Hallmark mystery fans and I am really eager to see more.

Stop The Focal Fry!

I loved the movie, but couldn't stand to hear the female lead talk. I couldn't understand anything she was saying because of her ridiculous vocal fry. Why do actresses talk like they are straining their voices, resulting in their dialogue sounding like a squeaky pig stuck in a barb wire fence. So many times I just wanted to reach through the TV and hand her a sore throat drop. Why wouldn't the director or sound person say something during filming?! This type of speaking is so freaking annoying, and makes you not want to watch anything with it in it. All actors, please stop the vocal fry! It is not attractive.

Great, except ...

I agree with the other reviews as to the actors, characters and plot. All were credible and enjoyable. The plot was, overall, clever and succeeded in not foreshadowing the deneument. The premise, however unlikely, wasn't entirely implausible but, as presented, there is a significant, perpetuated flaw. Fortunately, fixing it would be easy.

I'm not sure if the problem was in the story itself or the writing (I'm not sure exactly which).

SPOILER:

As an avowed crime show watcher, Maddie would know better than to show up at a crime scene by herself, not to disturb a crime scene, not to gather evidence (either as a non-cop or without a subpoena), and not to interview witnesses or suspects, and especially not after being told not to and to have been reminded more than once.
