    Nice Entry in the Series

    Being the eight book in the Murder, She Wrote series, starting with Gin & Daggers, The Highland Fling murders is one of the better entries in this series. Jessica and a group of her Cabot Cove friends are off to the Scottish Highlands, as guests of George Sutherland, the Scotland Yard Inspector that Jessica met in the first book, Gin & Daggers. They have had a budding romance throughout the series and if it wasn't for the murder mystery that developes, who knows where their relationship may have ended up. George is a great character and it's always nice when he returns to the series. As usual, Donald Bain writes with excellent descriptions of the countryside. All the Murder, She Wrote books have great details, no matter what setting he places them in. This book is also constructed closer to the way a typical Murder, She Wrote televsion episode would be crafted. A Scottish Castle, supposedly haunted. Sightings of ghosts and Jessica trapping the killer at the end, using a bit of bait. All of these elements made this one of the books I couldn't complain about. However, the solution to the mystery is typical Bain. In my opinion, so far, reading this series in order, "A Deadly Judgement" had about the best satisfying solution, complete with a few clues that the reader could pick up on if they paid attention. Unfortunately, most of the books in this series start off well, are an easy read, and then fall apart during the solution and that's always dissapointing in a mystery story. Donald Bain relies on the same gimmick too many times and his "conspiracies" in some of these books get a bit old. But all in all, this one is a charmer and whether or not you enjoy the solution, it does make sense and you'll have a good time along the way.
