(Telepic--Hallmark Channel, Sat. Aug. 23, 9 p.m.)
It turns out that the lodge at which she's staying was also a favorite retreat for her late mother, and once there, Pru discovers a box of her old love letters as well as a new friend in caretaker Ruth Lawson (Tantoo Cardinal).
In the grand tradition of mystery movies, trouble soon arrives. Ruth's son, who was investigating shady dealings involving Native American tribal land, is found dead of an alleged suicide, but Pru suspects foul play. She informs the local sheriff, Eddie Duncan (Jamey Sheridan), of her suspicions, but he's not buying into her brand of do-it-yourself sleuthing. In fact, when she offers to tutor him on how to clean the police station coffeemaker, he rebuffs her with "We like bitter. It keeps us mean."
