If You Like …
Murder, She Wrote the television series, you’ll love this book.
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.
