Blue Smoke is a 2007 American television film directed by David Carson and starring Alicia Witt, Matthew Settle, and Scott Bakula. Written by Ronni Kern, based on the Nora Roberts novel of the same name, the film is about a beautiful arson investigator whose boyfriends are murdered in fires set by a stalker who traumatized her years earlier. Blue Smoke is part of the Nora Roberts 2007 movie collection, which also includes Angels Fall, Carolina Moon, and Montana Sky. The film debuted February 12, 2007 on Lifetime Television.[1]


After watching a fire burn her family's Baltimore pizzeria to the ground, 11‑year-old Reena Hale (Witt) decides she wants to be an arson investigator when she grows up. And with the help of mentor John Minger (Bakula), whom she met during the investigation of her family's restaurant, Reena realizes her dream.

Years later, the grown up Reena buys a house in the old neighborhood, moving in next door to carpenter Bo Goodnight (Settle). As Reena and Bo embark on a relationship, a psychopathic arsonist from her past begins wreaking havoc on her life. Reena's stalker threatens her life, and those of her loved ones.



The executive producers of the film were Stephanie Germain and Peter Guber; they were also executive producers for seven other Nora Roberts films for Lifetime in 2007 and 2009. Blue Smoke was filmed on location in Calgary, Alberta, Canada between October 30 and November 24, 2006.[2]
