Meet the Cast


Hallmark’s synopsis for the movie reads: “After 10 years of estrangement, fraternal twin sisters Nikki (King) and Nora (Fish) Sullivan are reunited when they inherit a small private detective agency. Nora is a successful lawyer at a high-profile Chicago law firm on track to make partner and Nikki is a streetwise, struggling actress who can barely pay her rent every month. Nikki, always in need of cash, wants to liquidate the detective agency immediately but before she can persuade her sister, they stumble upon the dead body of the lead counsel in Nora’s law firm. Sensing an opportunity for impromptu undercover work, Nikki agrees to join forces to find the killer. Utilizing their local connections, the sisters struggle to stay one step ahead of Chicago police detective Scott Evans (David Attar, “Riverdale”). Hoping to start a romantic relationship with Nora, patrol officer Robby Watts(Madison Smith, “Joy for Christmas”) uses his insider police department connections to help the sisters with the case. As Nikki and Nora are pulled deeper into the murder mystery, they realize that their twin sister connection gives them a unique advantage and a real knack for solving mysteries.”

In an interview with Media Village, Fish commented: “When I discovered the story was about two sisters, that to me was greater than any love story that has ever been written. To me, a sister relationship, especially twins, is one I think is incredibly special. I also liked that these [sisters] are polar opposites as human beings. There’s something that exists between siblings, especially twins, that we just can’t explain. There’s kind of a soul connection these two characters share, which I very much felt with Hunter. It was very cool to explore that kind of relationship with somebody that I very much have that feeling for in real life.”

In a light-hearted Instagram post, she shared: “Little embarrassed by my behaviour at the end there. Settle down, mate.”
