  • Iconic Cozy Mystery Series

    Jessica Fletcher is excited to visit her dear friend Dolores in South Carolina. What she didn’t bargain for is stumbling upon the body of Dolores’ new husband, Willis, dead in the Koi Pond. Sheriff Halvorson is quick to target Dolores as the killer, which Jessica isn’t having any part of. She begins to investigate, immediately discovering a long list of people that hated the victim. In order to clear her friend from suspicion, Jessica sets out to find the real killer. Willis held many secrets, and used them to get what he wanted from his friends and business associates. Jessica and Dolores begin looking through his business and personal files, peeling back the layers to find a motive for his murder. Unfortunately, the list of suspects keeps growing, and the stakes of finding the killer are getting higher every day. This cozy mystery series is as delightful as the popular television series of the same name. It is true to form for the cozy mystery genre. The murder is done “off stage” and found by Jessica Fletcher. She begins sleuthing when her friend is in trouble. There are several suspects, and the end is always tied up neatly. It is fun to read as well as trying to figure out the identity of the killer and his or her motive before the reveal in the final chapters. If you are a fan of the television series, like me, you may just hear Angela Lansbury’s voice in your head when reading Jessica’s conversations. Killing in a Koi Pond is not Shakespeare, nor are is intended to be. It is a perfect cozy, containing one of the most iconic amateur sleuths ever immortalized in print. The solid plot and engaging characters are satisfying and entertaining. I highly recommend it. DISCLOSURE OF MATERIAL CONNECTION: I have a material connection because I received a review copy for free from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. Copyright © 2021 Laura Hartman

  • Jessica Gets Back on the Road to Murder

    Jessica Fletcher is traveling down to South Carolina to visit a college friend. Delores has just married Willis, and she is over the moon. She is also blind to the way that Willis treats the majority of those around them, but Jessica observes the way others are reacting to his almost abusive behavior at dinner. When Jessica sets out for a run the next morning, she finds Willis dead in the Koi Pond. While Delores doesn’t want to believe that anyone could have killed Willis, the police being to treat Delores as a suspect. Can Jessica figure out what is really happening? Although I’ve been a fan of the TV show for years, I just started reading the books a couple of years ago. While I enjoyed those books, they felt a little off for the franchise. This book captures the feel of the show much better, especially Jessica on a trip episode (which were the majority). Jessica is her charming best here, and I enjoyed several other characters as well as appreciating the growth in Delores. I did feel that Delores’s step-granddaughter was a bit young for the age she was supposed to be and the suspects were thin. The plot was good, although the pacing was off. Still, it did provide some enjoyable red herrings before we reached a classic Murder, She Wrote climax. Fans of the series will feel right at home here.

  • I loved it

    This book is a very worthy addition to the Murder She Wrote series. A top notch whodunit that spoke to the hallmarks of the characters and premise. I’m thrilled to see this series carry on in Ms. Moran’s capable hands!

  • She's baaaack!

    Jessica’s back! And I for one am very happy about it. Co-authors Jessica Fletcher and Terrie Farley Moran have perfectly captured the essence of the TV series and the early books. Jessica is still thorough, competent, determined (nosy), fearless, and even though she never takes any guff from anyone, she always retains her wit, humor, manners and common sense. Everywhere she is, whether she stays home or goes visiting, a murder happens. And that’s the fun, because Jessica is the perfect one to solve it, and she’ll continue to “help” the authorities until solved it is I was delighted to see Harry McGraw at work again in this story and to hear from grumpy best buddy Seth. I felt as if I was viewing another episode of the series; I could picture the characters, their voices, their mannerisms and enjoyed the often mundane but much needed descriptions of clothes, food, surroundings, Jessica’s jogs . . . . Moran has done an excellent job with her first pairing with Fletcher. Looking forward to many more books in this totally enjoyable and satisfying series.

  • Okay but a little disappointing.

    Murder She Wrote #53. Takes place in South Carolina. Jessica is visiting an old friend from college when the friends husband is murdered. Jessica comes across as slightly cold and humorless. The identity of the murderer is really not a surprise. The book was a little disappointing. Copyright 2021.
