Witness to Murder: A Darrow Mystery – More Fun in the Courtroom!


Keeping busy with work, Claire Darrow (Kimberley Williams-Paisley) and her daughter (Lilah Fitzgerald) are making the adjustment to Claire’s mother living with them. Now that they started to build bonds again, Joanna (Wendie Malick) has decided she’s going to stay. Together, she and Claire keep busy with their Darrow & Darrow clients, the firm her father started.

Meanwhile, on the personal front, Claire continues to keep prosecuting attorney Miles (Tom Cavanaugh) at arm’s length. Despite a well-meaning warning from her mother that Miles might not always be there, Claire insists they don’t have a “thing.” At least she doesn’t think so until someone from Miles past enters their lives. But as a witness to murder, and a new case of murder on her docket, Claire focuses on her client whose innocence she has to prove!

Witness to Murder: A Darrow Mystery (2019) Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Review

The fourth film in the ‘Darrow’ mystery series, this one is really quite entertaining. The mystery itself is interesting in a simple way, and like anything from this network, we get a sense of camaraderie that isn’t always captured in films. In the case of these “installment” mysteries, you get the characterization that builds. With each new story, we learn more about these characters, and we see the bumpiness of these relationships iron out and become better.

What’s really fun about this one is the would-be romantic relationship. It’s treated with awkwardness that is nothing if not adorable. I love how this plays out between Claire and Miles in ‘Witness to Murder.’ It’s darling, and is sure to make anyone who likes these characters smile big. The way the next step of their relationship goes down only adds to the reasons why we love their banter, and the potential of a romance between them.

If you’ve seen prior films in this mystery series, don’t miss ‘Witness to Murder.’ Like everything else from the network, this one is entertaining in the best way, and despite it being a murder mystery, it makes you happy by film’s end. Some of the setups or script choices feel a tiny bit underwhelming (like how the courtroom scene in the “climax”), but again, this is minor in comparison to the ultimate conclusion.

Witness to Murder: A Darrow Mystery continues to bring fun cases to the bench, and that’s enough for any amateur sleuth.
