Meet the Cast
Hallmark’s synopsis reads:
Birdie Case (Garcia) is a bright, successful attorney. Her husband Alden (Campbell) is smart and charming, but his inability to settle on a career is causing strain in their marriage. When Alden goes behind his wife’s back to take classes, in hopes of becoming a private investigator, a homework assignment entangles him in a murder investigation. Birdie just may hold the keys to solving the mystery, but Alden will have to come clean to find out. Only, Alden suspects that Birdie might be hiding secrets of her own.
