I’m a sucker for a TV tie-in novel, let alone a series! Jessica Fletcher, Cabot Cove, Maine’s own Angel of Death, is off promoting her latest novel in New York when she witnesses the street-corner murder of a hometown boy gone bad. In true J.B. Fletcher style, she snoops around until she finds out what’s happened and who’s responsible.
A few wonky character misfires here (Sheriff Mort’s from New York, not Cabot Cove!), but an enjoyable enough look into Jessica’s off-screen exploits. Spoiler alert: nobody drinks any Manhattans. 😦
