Publisher's Summary

Jessica Fletcher finds herself in an incredibly compromising situation, awakening on a lobster boat adrift in Cabot Cove to discover she's not alone: there's a dead body aboard.

Jessica soon finds herself in a swirling investigation that involves the sleepy town of Cabot Cove and its lobstermen. The town wants to throw a gala pageant to attract tourists, and the town's board wants the lobstermen to hold off selling recent harvests in order to serve the inevitable demand. The fishermen are not pleased with this strain on their livelihoods. Tempers begin to flare, but no one could foresee that the escalation of accidents and mishaps would end in murder... with Jessica at the center of it all.

Be Entertained and Learn Lobstering

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It is easy to imagine Jessica waking up in an unfamiliar place; after that the narrator takes the book down a lane that includes well fleshed out characters, entertaining plot lines, and an education about lobstering that the listener will find absolutely engaging.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Murder, She Wrote: The Maine Mutiny?

Put on your seatbelt before it starts; it's going to be a rocky ride!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Interesting Story and Wonderfully Read

What made the experience of listening to Murder, She Wrote: The Maine Mutiny the most enjoyable?

I know all the characters in the Maine mysteries and I feel like I am at home whether Jessica Fletcher is traveling or staying at home. The mysteries wonderful to listen to as you feel as though you are in Maine with Jessica.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jessica of course

What about Cynthia Darlow’s performance did you like?

Loved her, she sounds just like Jessica sounds in all her Murder she wrote mysteries.Great accent.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

A little of both. Sadness about the murder, and funny how some of the descriptions others involved.

Any additional comments?

You can never go wrong with a Murder She Wrote mystery. Interesting, clean content and gives you hours of enjoyment if you are a fan as I am.

Another great story.

Listening to these stories makes me wish the show was still on with Angela Lansbury.

Always a great listen.

I love these books. Narration is excellent down to accents and expressions. It is nice to have so many to choose from.

Return to Cabot Cove

The only critique I have is I find it annoying that when the dialogue is being read it is just she said, he said. I like for my conversations to flow a bit better, but I enjoyed taking another trip back to Cabot Cove.

Best in the Series (That I've Read)

Would you consider the audio edition of Murder, She Wrote: The Maine Mutiny to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print so I'm not sure, but I think the Narrator is great.

What does Cynthia Darlow bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The different voices are very good. She's not EXACTLY Jessica's voice from the TV show, but she still delivers a performance that really grows on you.

Any additional comments?

This book is the best I've read in the series (also enjoyed Domestic Malice), and I think it's because it takes place actually in Cabot Cove. I think that's where these books are the strongest.

Enjoyable

It was a nice, fun book, entertaining, light, and clean. So far I have found all of the books in this series to be the same.
I would've prefered the narrator to have given Mort a New York accent. Otherwise she did a great job.

Can you say "he said, I said, she said"

First of all, the narration wasn't the greatest... voice changing for various characters wasn't real good. Of course Jessica doesn't sound like the TV Jessica but that's to be expected.

The use of "he said, I said, she said" was WAY overdone. Got a bit tiresome but when the voice changing isn't good for each character, it has to be "he said, I said, she said".

The story is good enough, slower moving than on TV but then it is a 7-ish hour long book compared to a 1 hour TV show, I believe the length is somewhere around that 7 hours, as I recall.

I still liked it well enough to try another one but definitely will not do another one with Cynthia Darlow as the narrator. I've listened to snippets of those with Sandra Burr as the narrator and she's "seems" to be much better from what I can tell without actually having listened to a whole book, much better.

I've read better cozy mysteries but this one is okay, not riveting, wasn't as good as Jessica's TV series but I'll try another one before I throw in the towel on this series.

Fisherman, Lobsters, Murder and Jessica!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Murder, She Wrote: The Maine Mutiny to be better than the print version?

Didn't read the print version but the vocal characterizations made the story so much more interesting. The reader has developed the characters nicely.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, of course I tried to figure out who did what but the story had me listening until the end and I still didn't get it right.

Another Excellent Murder, She Wrote Audiobook

Would you listen to Murder, She Wrote: The Maine Mutiny again? Why?

I will certainly listen to this book again. I believe I own all of the Murder, She Wrote audiobooks and I enjoy listening to them every few months. The TV show was my favorite all the years it was on and I was thrilled to find out someone (Donald Bain) was writing books with that theme. Cynthia Darlow mimics Angela Lansbury's voice perfectly.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Starting the story with a cliffhanger, with Jessica in danger, was an excellent plot ploy. The story never lagged.

Which character – as performed by Cynthia Darlow – was your favorite?

Of course, Jessica was my favorite character. But Doc Hazlett and the sheriff are always entertaining.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would have enjoyed listening to the book in one sitting but, since I listen mostly when in my car, that wasn't possible. I did also listen while on my morning walks.

Any additional comments?

I am hoping that all the Murder, She Wrote books will come out on audiobooks. With my busy schedule, audiobooks allow me to
