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!
