The busy actress/producer/director has figured out a recipe for success with her Hallmark Movies & Mysteries franchise.

"Robbie loves the chase, loves solving any puzzle or mystery. She is particularly interested in Gina’s disappearance because she and Gina knew each other growing up together in a small town," the logline reads.

Sweeney's no stranger to the Hallmark channel—she previously starred in and produced the Murder She Baked franchise as well as: Love on the Air, The Irresistible Blueberry Farm and Christmas at Holly Lodge.
