‘Aurora Teagarden Mysteries’ with Candace Cameron Bure Returns to Hallmark This August

It’s a summer of murder and mystery over at Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, when Candace Cameron Bure returns in the latest installment of the Aurora Teagarden Mysteries. The first of three all-new movies about the crime-solving librarian premieres in August. Here’s what to expect.  

‘Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: A Game of Cat and Mouse’ premieres August 4 

The newest addition to Hallmark’s Aurora Teagarden series finds the title character caught in the middle of a dangerous game: 

When someone begins taunting Aurora Teagarden (Bure) with cryptic clues left at crime scenes, the librarian-turned-crime buff attempts to figure out who is behind the creepy “game.” But when the people closest to Aurora become targets, the game takes on a much more dangerous edge as it points to a planned murder. And once it is discovered that Aurora’s blossoming relationship with Professor Nick Miller (Niall Matter) might be the source of jealousy that is driving the crime spree, Aurora must be especially careful not to become the next victim.

Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: A Game of Cat and Mouse airs Sunday, August 4 at 9/8c on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

A Game of Cat and Mouse is the 10th movie in the Aurora Teagarden series, which debuted on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries in 2015. It will be followed by two more new movies. 

Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: An Inheritance to Die For premieres August 11. When Sally Allison’s (Lexa Doig) aunt is poisoned at a wedding reception, Aurora vows to get to the bottom of the crime, with a little help from her beau Nick and her friends in the Real Murders Club.

Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: A Very Foul Play will air August 18. While attending a weekend gathering of mystery and true crime fans, Aurora and the rest of the Real Murders Club agree to participate in what’s supposed to be a fun murder mystery play. But when someone is killed on stage, Aurora’s nephew becomes the prime suspect in the crime. 

“These movies will always be near and dear to my heart, and I can’t wait for you all to finally get to see them,” Cameron Bure wrote in an Instagram post urging people to tune in. 

Candace Cameron Bure’s other Hallmark projects 

The new Aurora Teagarden movies aren’t the only place you’ll be able to catch Cameron Bure on the Hallmark family of networks. Later this year, the actress will also star in her eighth Christmas movie for the Hallmark Channel.

In Christmas Town, Cameron Bure plays a Boston woman named Lauren Gabriel who makes an unexpected detour to the town of charming town of Grandon Falls, where she rediscovers the magic of Christmas. It’s based on a book by Donna VanLiere. 

The 43-year-old Bure has had a long and productive relationship with Hallmark, in part because she’s a fan of their family-friendly approach to entertainment. 

“I have a great partnership with Hallmark. They are a great channel that I believe in, and their branding is held up to the values that I try to honor…because I am very picky about what I choose to do that are representative of families and good values,” she explained to Southern Living in 2017. “So Hallmark Channel has just been a wonderful partner for me and like I said our branding lines up perfectly. So that’s why I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.”
