A long time reader and listener - I just can't get enough of Audible! (Especially mysteries and Buddhist texts and history and ...etc!
I used to watch the TV series, and enjoyed it, so when I was hunting for a new (for me) mystery to get into, I decided to give this book a try.
I read mysteries off all kinds - dark and gruesome, violent and brutal, cute and funny, cozy and comfy... This one, I'd say, falls into a "cozy" category. There is no extreme violence, no blood and gore; and the characters make the plot go round. The recurring characters are good and well-developed, as are their interpersonal communications.
However - I had two issues with this book. The "old lady" New England accent was driving me nuts; and, I really couldn't identify with a whole crew of rich retirees, writers, doctors, etc who hop on a plane and jaunt around England and solve a crime.
Anyway, those are MY issues. But the story was good and the quality of the narration was good. So, I have to second what other reviewers have said: If you liked the TV series, you will enjoy this book!
DM Always entertaining.
It was a little different than the usual.
Her accent made it more real.
I like the potential romance options for Jessica.
There are too many he said, she said, I said. They were conversations and the she said he said often was not needed to understand who said what. It was distracting.
I loved hearing more about the romance between the Scottland Yard Detective and Jessica Fletcher. It is always a pleasure to hear the desciptions of the surroundings and in this case I felt like I'd taken a mini tour of London.
My favorite scenes were the ones where she was interacting with all her friends that had come to London with her.
Jessica finds herself caught up in the middle of another murder case involving an old Cabot Cove native and now owner of a start-up, upscale commercial airline, Silver Air. Wayne Silverton invites some of his former Cabot Cove associates on the inaugural flight to London's Stanstead airport. But before they can leave the States Wayne Silverton turns up dead. Turns out Wayne Silverton had a host of enemies and any one of them could have turned hatred into murder.
This was an excellent mystery that kept me guessing until the very end. I enjoyed the story and look forward to my next Jessica Fletcher adventure.
Yes, easy listening, story flows nicely. Relaxing listen.
The Inspector. Cool, calm and collected. How come we don't have any??
The Inspector. Of course.
The husband trying to protect his wife.
This story involves a new airline and a short stay in London. The airline is to be a "premium" carrier which will charge a little more for tickets, but will offer amenities like larger seats, leg room and good service. (I am old enough to remember when all commercial flights were like that.) Jessica and some of her good friends from Cabot Cove have been invited to an introductory public relations flight.
The plot is good, but not as intriguing as other books of this series I have listened to. My favorite MSW stories are the ones in which Jessica is in an environment that is new to her. In this story she is on more familiar ground.
Cynthia Darlow does a good job as narrator.
There are no graphic sexual situations or violence. This is a relaxing cozy. If you enjoyed Murder She Wrote on TV, you are likely to enjoy this book.
Yes because its so much fun to listen to Cynthia
After being a Murder She Wrote fan she made me feel I was listening toJessica
