Quotes & Awards

  • “In Bain’s thirtieth mystery based on the classic television series Murder, She Wrote…ferreting out who killed Wanamaker is tough work, but Jessica, as always, rises to the challenge. Ghostly assistance adds to the charm of the spunky sleuthing.”

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 1/13/2014

    " the story line of this book was a little far fetched; Jessica is asked to Savannah to solve a forty year old murder. That said, it was an interesting story and I always love Jessica's novels! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 12/23/2013

    " Always an easy fun read. Bought in Savannah at "The Book" bookstore while on vacation. The gal working there told me about her ghost encounter (that was mentioned in this book). She was thanked in the preface, so how could I not buy it and have her sign it?? :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/13/2013

    " I always enjoy the Murder She Wrote series.. as I loved the show as a kid.. this is not at the top of my list of favorites in this series ..it moved a little slow at times and some things for me were a tad far fetched..but still a good lazy afternoon read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina | 12/6/2013

    " It was, as my two star rating indicates, "okay." That having been said, it's one of the better books in this particular series. If you go in without high expectations, you'll find it to be a decent fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beverly | 11/28/2013

    " I always enjoy this series. I don't always figure out who did it before it ends, but even when I do, the writing is always well done. And since I love the TV series, I can always picture and hear Angela Landsberry when I read the books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 8/27/2013

    " Quick read. Can't help but imagine Angela Lansbury's voice throughout the story. "

    " The third of the three MSW books I'd splurged on in the hopes of finding a new series to attach myself to. I'd managed to slog through the first two. Upon reading the first half chapter I realized I had better things to do than muck trough a third. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle O | 4/13/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book! This is the first Jessica Fletcher book I have read, but I remember watching the TV show when I was little. It was fast, light, and delightful! "

    " Jessica Fletcher inherits a million dollars, but only if she donates it to a literary charity and solves the crime with a delightful twist. She learns much about Savannah's St. Patrick's Day celebration that is second only to New York's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicolas | 8/21/2011

    " This series is literary comfort food for me. They tend to follow a pretty standard formula, which is fine because it is one that I love. However it is nice when they occasionly go down a different path, like this one did. It was very enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 4/8/2011

    " I always liked these stories. However, this one was not my favorite b/c I figured out who did it a little too soon into the book. Although I loved the reasons/story behind the murder. Can't wait for the next one to test my detective skills. "

    " Good book, same formula as the rest, but still an enjoyable read. "
