Marie’s Thoughts

I’ve read several books in this series. To be honest a few books back they got quite repetitive for me and I had stopped reading them as regularly. I felt this book was a fresh take on the series. It humanized Jessica Fletcher and brought depth to her as a character that I appreciated, while still holding true to her personality. The book dealt with current day issues and was an entertaining read. I would recommend it to fans of cozy mysteries and Murder, She Wrote in particular.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. This post contains affiliate links. If you purchase anything from the links above, A Cozy Experience receives a small commission and for that we are very thankful!

Marie: I’m so deeply appreciative of your words and thoughts on my first effort in the MURDER, SHE WROTE series. Your review encapsulated everything I set out to do when I took over the series from the late, great Don Bain and serves as wonderful affirmation of my efforts in that a regard. MANUSCRIPT FOR MURDER, my second effort, has already been turned in and will be published in November. And rest assured your words will continue to inspire me to make this the finest cozy mystery series out there today. Jon
