After the success of last August’s month of Garage Sale Mystery premieres, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries is doing it again. Beginning Sunday night and airing every Sunday through the end of the month, the network will roll out four brand new movies featuring Jennifer Shannon and her merry band of mystery mates, taking the franchise to a stunning 15 films since 2013.

The whole cast–Lori Loughlin, Sarah Strange, Steve Bacic, Eva Bourne, Connor Stanhope, Kevin O’Grady, Johannah Newmarch, and Jay Brazeau–returns, as does director Neill Fearnley , who did all four last summer and does three this year, with Mel Damski taking one. Three sets of writers cover script duties. Here’s a rundown on the titles.
