Review: Brandy and Bullets

Brandy and Bullets
Brandy and Bullets by Jessica Fletcher
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In this installment of the “Murder, She Wrote” tie-in novel series, Jessica Fletcher finds out that an ultra-exclusive writers’ retreat that has opened in her hometown of Cabot Cove may not be the creative haven it claims to be.

This novel eventually takes a pretty wild turn, but if you’ve already suspended your belief this far, it’s a fun enough ride. My favorite thing about these novels are the playful shout-outs that Jessica’s “ghostwriter,” Donald Bain, sometimes makes to those members of the reading audience who may know a bit about him. In this novel, one of Jessica’s friends is mentioned to have written Western novels under a pseudonym, which Bain himself has done in the past (as J.D. Hardin.)

As always, if you like this character, you’ll probably like Brandy and Bullets.
