Publisher's Summary

Jessica Fletcher learns that the movie biz can make you, break you, or kill you....

Cabot Cove is about to be invaded - by Hollywood. One of Jessica's older novels is being made into a big-budget movie. The producer has decided to shoot most of the film on location in town, since the book was loosely based on a murder that shocked Cabot Cove over a decade earlier.

The murder occurred when a judge was gunned down while walking her dog. The prime suspect: an enraged husband whom the judge ruled against in a child custody case. But further investigation pointed to the victim's own husband - and ultimately to his mistress, accused of eliminating her rival.

Unfortunately, everyone on the set has a hidden agenda. A novice director wants his shot at the big-time. A fading star, making a comeback, has many unreasonable demands. Her astrologer sees trouble in the stars. And a stranger on the movie lot is stalking Jessica.

But fiction and reality fatally collide when the actress playing the judge is shot - the only witness her dog - and there's a cast and crew of possible suspects. With tensions between locals and the Hollywood horde mounting, Jessica must find the killer before anyone else is left on the cutting-room floor.

A Good, Cute, Cozy Listen

I have enjoyed the Mrs. Fletcher audio books I've listened to, and the narrator, Sandra Burr, is superb (much better than Cynthia Darlow).

Close-up On Murder was very cozy, and, what I really liked, was set in Cabot Cove. So many of the later Mrs. Fletcher stories are set somewhere else (New York, London, etc), and I really prefer the cozy village setting.

The mystery was good, and the variety of characters were well drawn, easy to identify, and nice to "meet".

This is a formulaic (in a good way), classic Murder She Wrote story. If you liked the series, you will really like this book!! I've listened to a few Mrs. Fletcher books, and this one is among my favourites.

Why only four stars? Well, it was a fun read, but the nature of the book (being in a cozy series), was not a stand out. It was cozy, and fun, not earth-shattering or revolutionary.

This was ok

I love Mrs Fletcher and the story wasn't so bad but the narrator made Mrs Fletcher sound far too young.
