Jessica Fletcher must catch an artistic killer in this mystery in the USA Today bestselling Murder, She Wrote series...

Cozy Cabot Cove, Maine, has a country luncheonette, but not much high culture. Mystery author Jessica Fletcher is the only writer in residence, but the renovation of the local Worrell mansion into an art colony may bring scores of artistic people to town. No one, however, expected a creative killer.

The posh retreat offers struggling aritsts a European spa, psychiatry, and even hypnotism. But soon the retreat begins to look like a health hazzard. A suicide attempt and a brutal murder quickly arouse the sheriff's attention—and Jessica's. And when an old friend mysteriously disappears, Jessica fears a twisted genius is at work writing a scenario for murder—putting Jessica's own life on the line.

I usually love the various books in this series but this one was terrible! The beginning was smooth coasting and the bit with the hypnotist was funny but the story's elements and what it turns out to be is malovent and a little disturbing. In a nut shell, not a good book.

Brandy & Bullets, the fouth book in the Murder, She Wrote series, is just plain silly and the plot is sheer nonsense! Reading them in order, I gave this book 2 stars, only because it was nice for the author to bring Jessica back to Cabot Cove. Granted, many of the personalities of the town from the television show are NOT present, and this is a bit disappointing, but Mr. Bain introduces us to his own cast of quirky characters, some of whom will return in future novels. The plot is utterly silly and without giving it away, it involves a government conspiracy. Not the usual cozy-mystery sub-plot that you'd come to expect from Murder, She Wrote. Jessica does NOT solve the crime, and it seems as if she just goes along with the reader until the solution is presented to her, by another character in the book. This, in my opinion, is simply not done in a Murder, She Wrote story. Jessica Fletcher is our detective protaganist. Why does Mr. Bain have a hard time giving the readers the type of story, complete with fair-play clues and a common-sense solution, that the show is known for? Granted, many mystery stories have some odd coincidences, but this novel's solution is simple foolishness. It's more comic than sinister. I've rated the first three books with 3 stars, and the same complaints I have about the first three are evident in this book, but the plot makes it just that much worse. It's not the worst book in the series, (that comes later), but this is one of the bad ones. I can't really recommend this book, accept to read it if you're enjoying the series.

I'm a 28 year old 'Murder, She Wrote' fan and when I saw 6 of Donald Bain's paperbacks at a used book store in Boston, I snatched them right up. I loved reading this book, as well as 'Martinis and Mayhem' but 'Brandy and Bullets' fails in a most crucial way; Mrs. Fletcher doesn't actually solve a mystery! She is given the solution by another character. There is no process of elimination, no subtle clue like the kind we came to love in the TV Series ('... but you were NOT wearing that little blue signet pin AFTER the party...') If you love the series, you'll love the book because it gives you another chance to let J.B. Fletcher run loose in your head, but Mr. Bain let me down by having the answers handed to our favorite sleuth by a minor character, instead of challenging us to match wits with her (I read this book expecting to beat myself up for missing a clue that she would later reveal). Its worth the price for fans, but if you want an actual mystery, buy another of Mr. Bain's splendid books instead.

Brandy and Bullets is the best. If you haven't read a Murder She Wrote Mystery it's time you did, and Brandy and Bullets is the perfect one to start with. In fact it's my favorite of the series, not that all of them arn't the quintessence of a fast-paced contemporary whodunnit. I don't know why Jessica Fletcher and Donald Bain haven't hit the top of the bestseller list yet, they can match witts with any mystery writer there is. These books are so good I read one a day. You wont be able to put them down!
