Jessica Fletcher would like nothing more than to sit back and relax as Thanksgiving comes to Cabot Cove. But this year, she's already got more on her plate than she can handle.
Jessica is suffering from a rare case of writer's block, and the deadline for her new novel is fast approaching. Also, her friend, Scotland Yard Inspector George Sutherland, is coming from London to experience the American holiday. But most distressing of all, Jessica is hosting a bountiful Thanksgiving dinner for a guest list that is growing by the day.
Jessica carries on toward her culinary conquest, and she couldn't be more thankful about the results. Until she and George take a post-turkey stroll and stumble upon the body of a man with a carving knife stuck in his chest....

The mystery plot and the Thanksgiving timeline make for an interesting listen. Sandra Burr goes an exceptional job narrating.
I've been listening to quite a few of these books in a row. In a recent book Jessica called Sheriff Metzger Mortimer throughout the book. As this became a kind of 'code' in this one it is disappointing. Different real authors writing these? Or at least a copy editor who doesn't know the series.
The 1st book I reviewed was the 1st I'd read in this series and it had a different narrator, which, I didn't enjoy so that left a lot to be desired. This narrator was MUCH better, which is such a big part of whether or not I enjoy any audible book. BECAUSE the narrator was better at changing voices, she DID NOT use "he said, I said, she said", much at all, which was tedious/aggravating (?) in the only other of this series I read, "The Main Mutiny" and I mentioned in my last review.
I do plan to go on to the next in the series. I sure wish I were able to get the books from book #1 but unfortunately, they're not available at present
I suppose one of the reasons I didn't rate this book 5 stars all the way across is because I enjoy the TV series more but this is a good read and though, not one I couldn't put down, I didn't mind picking it back up either!
A good, easy read, cozy mystery... clean and comfortable.
Oh, one other thing, I and one other person I know, prefer to read those that take place in Jessica's hometown of Cabot Cove. Being these are not more or less continued but rather, stand on their own, you can pick and choose which you'd like to read next.
Hope you enjoy!!
The audio version brings so much life to the book.
I liked how Sandra Burr sounded like Jessica Fletcher.
The voice of Mrs. Fletcher
Don't listen twice but might consider it in the future.
Not on the edge of my seat but the story did propel me forward.
This one worked for me so wouldn't change it.
Audible, please give us more MSW books. I have every one and looking for more. Possibly the older editions in audible format.
