| As much lighthearted fun as you can have in a murder mystery
If you don't mind gaping plot holes, Gourmet Detective movies are usually fun. The leads have good chemistry and manage some decent dialogue. The mystery is interesting. I usually find it goes back and forth with enough complexity that I don't anticipate whodunit.

Unfortunately, perhaps more than some of the Hallmark whodunits, Gourmet Detective also usually has a few too many procedural issues. Apparently the writers never heard of the fruit of the poison tree, and break-ins by one or both of the leads are fairly common. The final perilous confrontation makes no sense since the first thing out of Maggie's mouth should have been to tell the villain what the people back at the station already knew meaning there was nothing left to hide. But then that would eliminate the token drama. Plus another illegal search and why were they there alone? Like I said, ignore the plot holes and the movie is fine.

There's a sweet surprise at the end that has nothing to do with the mystery, but adds another nice element to the personal stories.
