Murder, She Wrote ~


Murder, She Wrote Blood On the Vine by Jessica Fletcher & Donald Bain

Jessica Fletcher is traveling to Napa Valley, California. She wants to write a murder mystery set in a vineyard. Her friend from Scotland Yard, Inspector George Sutherland is joining her. Soon after arriving at the B & B her and George are staying at, she hears of a murder of a waiter, a few months old now. The restaurant, where the waiter worked, is owned by the Bill Ladington. Not the nicest guy there is, but Jessica is soon invited to Ladington’s castle. Hours after meeting the man, he is discovered dead. It is thought to be suicide, but his son, Bruce, insists he was murdered. After Bruce asks Jessica and George to investigate the death of his father, Jessica and George are not only investigating murder but uncovering secrets of a dysfunctional family.

Good mystery. I did solve it, but I don’t mind solving murder mysteries now and then. I thought it was well-written, at a good pace and I was happy to see George in the story. 4 **** stars!


Murder, She Wrote The Ghost and Mrs. Fletcher by Jessica Fletcher, Donald Bain & Renee Paley-Bain

I liked this mystery. I did. It does have woo woo in it, I don’t like woo woo, but the woo woo is ridiculous and funny. I shake my head. In spite of the woo woo, it was good. It’s a well written mystery, with a large, creepy house and an even creepier, dark basement. The house is stuffed with books. A creepy handyman is skulking around and some say there is a ghost. I don’t read ghost stories, however, I have learned, when one reads many books, eventually one will read a book with a ghost in it. So, there you have it. 4 **** stars!

Happy Reading!

  1. I’ve seen, and enjoyed, several episodes of Murder, She Wrote. Angela Lansbury – great actress! I haven’t read any of the books yet, but, after reading your post here, I want to try the Blood on the Vine one, but I’ll skip the Ghost one. I don’t read or like ghost stories, either. And I don’t read woo woo (I’m guessing at what that means lol!), either. 😆
    I enjoy your posts, Kathy. 😀

  2. I haven’t read these yet, you are ahead of me in chronology : ). I don’t read or like ghost stories or woo woo either. I imagine Jessica Fletcher handles it in her typical no-nonsense way. Good reviews!
