    I watch a lot of Hallmark movies. My husband has read the vampire novels and Harper-Connelly mysteries and I have read the Aurora Teagarden mysteries. But why has Hallmark released more movies than there are books of Aurora Teagarden mysteries? When I read the Teagarden mysteries, I see the face of Candace Cameron Bure. I only recently found your books and have read the first two. I live in the SE corner of Texas.
