Overview

A doubly delightful volume with two Christmas-themed mysteries from the USA Today bestselling series!

Together for the first time, these two festive mysteries featuring legendary author and sleuth Jessica Fletcher deliver twice the Christmas cheer.

In Manhattans & Murder, Jessica's new book tour brings her to New York for Christmas, where she sees notorious Cabot Cove crook Waldo Morse dressed as a sidewalk Santa-and ends up witnessing a murder. With the police slow on their feet, and the victim's wife on the run, Jessica decides to do whatever it takes to stop a killer from spoiling the season.

And in A Little Yuletide Murder, Cabot Cove local Rory Brent is found shot to death on his farm, and everyone assumes the culprit is Brent's longtime enemy, Jake Walther, the meanest man in town. But Jessica thinks otherwise, and she's determined to deliver the real killer before Christmas. The trouble is, the next sound she hears this silent night may be a scream-her own.

    One of my favorites..

    Jessica Fletcher is one of my favorite detective characters. I used to watch the TV series with regularity and miss her sleuthing. So I was happy to see her return in this book. I've read one of the stories from this book, and it was a very easy read that kept my attention so that it was hard to put the book down. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a great read.

    Murder for Christmas

    My first book was Murder Never Takes a Holiday by Jessica Fletcher & Donald Bains. This was really two books in one as it combined two of the Christmas Murder, She Wrote books. I chose this book because I have always been a fan of the TV show and I felt like reading a quick paced mystery. I loved these two books as separate pieces but having them together was sort of odd. There was a discrepancy between the two books that I'm sure was not intentional but still seemed rather off to me. The first one takes place before the second one but the second feels almost like the first book never took place. Other than that I would highly recommend them to anyone who is a fan of the show, likes a good Christmas murder mystery, or wants to spend a few hours enjoying a wonderful set of characters.


    Manhattans & Murder Synopsis


    Bestselling mystery writer Jessica Fletcher's new book tour brings her to New York for Christmas. But she learns that Manhattan can be murder when she sees notorious Cabot Cove crook Waldo Morse-now playing a sidewalk Santa. She agrees to meet him the next day, but when Jessica shows up, she instead witnesses a murder. With the police slow on their feet, and the victim's wife fast on the run, Jessica decides to do what she does best, and do whatever it takes to stop a murderer form spoiling the season.


    A Little Yuletide Murder Synopsis


    When Cabot Cove local Rory Brent is found shot to death on his farm, everyone assumes the culprit is Brent's longtime enemy Jack Walther, the meanest man in town. Jake is crazy as a coot, sour as green apples, and bad tempered as a cat with its tail caught in a screen door. But Jessica Fletcher soon uncovers evidence that makes her believe the sheriff has arrested the wrong person. Snooping into the small town's past for a motive, Jessica is determined to deliver the real killer before Christmas. The trouble is, the next sound she hears this silent night may be a scream-her own.
