A Very Entertaining Read. I was a First Read Winner of this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I used to watch the TV show on a regular basis and honestly had no idea that there were books as well, silly me. It was the perfect read on a rainy weekend and it made me want to get more books of the series, they are such a cozy mystery read. Of course I loved the characters and the plot line and I could visualize the whole book and was sorry when I had to take a break from reading to actually do some work.
I always enjoy the books in this series. The characters are like old friends. Looking forward to the next one.
Murder She Wrote: Hook, Line, And Sinker is the forty-sixth book in the Murder She Wrote series. This was another exciting visit with Jessica Fletcher, Dr. Seth Hazlitt, Sheriff Mort Metzger and his wife, Maureen. Even though there is an escaped convict, Darryl Jepson, who lived in Cabot Cove before being sentenced, reports have him near the Canadian border, So it is thought that the fly fishing derby can be held. So Jessica and Maureen pack their fishing gear and head for the cabin that Jessica has rented. On the first day fishing, Maureen gets a good case of sunburn. Jessica convinces her to forgo the second day and stay in the cabin and recuperate. When Jessica and their guide, Brian Kinney, return to the cabin, Maureen is nowhere to be found. Soon the body of Jepson’s lawyer is found. The dilemma now is whether Maureen has gone for a walk and got lost or is Jepson in the area and has kidnapped her. Jessica now needs to put her mystery writing talent to work on finding Maureen. Another exciting story that kept me guessing to the end. I enjoyed watching the Murder She Wrote TV series and every time I read one these books I can see Angela Lansbury and William Windom in my mind’s eye. Looking forward to reading the next book of these enjoyable residents of Cabot Cove.
