Summary

With work on the reconstruction of her beloved home almost complete, Jessica Fletcher is in high holiday spirits, spearheading the annual Christmas parade and preparing for her nephew Grady and his family to come to town. The only thing dampening the holiday cheer is the discovery of two sets of bones on Jessica’s property: one set ancient, the other only about a year old. It’s concluded that they were both placed there during the reconstruction, and Jessica suspects that, despite the centuries between them, the remains might be connected. Soon tabloid reporter Tad Hollenbeck arrives in Cabot Cove to write a story about what he calls “the murder capital of the country”. But when Tad himself is murdered, Jessica speculates that his arrival, his death, and the discovery of the bones are all somehow linked.

As Jessica digs deeper to find the connection between the bones and Tad’s murder, everything seems to come back to a mystery that has long plagued Cabot Cove. If she wants to solve the case, she’ll need to delve into her beloved town’s dark history, or else this holiday season may be her last....

the narrator is monotone and sounds like a computer. I turned this off and will return.

glad it’s done

Jon Land’s Murder She Wrote books have all been good books but never really captured the feeling of an old murder she wrote episode. This one is no different— it doesn’t quite feel like Jessica Fletcher and the Christmas vibe never really came across for me. It was less like a Christmas Cozy and more like it just happened to take place at Christmas time. I’m hoping the next author at bat will bring back the nostalgic feeling of a murder she wrote novel.

Regretfully I miss Cynthia Darlow

Anytime someone besides Cynthia Darlow narrates, it just isn't as good. For me Cynthia is the voice of Jessica. Laurel's style is more halting. I did start to get used to it by the end of the book. I found the storyline enjoyable. The banter between the characters had me chuckleing many times.

inconsistent

I always enjoy murder she wrote. but after Jon Land took over the series has definitely changed. in this book Jessica's nephew is going to start his own accounting firm but a few books back when Jessica was in New York city visiting him his firm he worked for went under after a murder on the set of a commercial she was shooting and supposedly she said he went off to start a firm then. she also said she has note seen her nephew's son Frank since he was a baby and she visited them a few books back and he was a pre teen and on set at the same commercial where there was a murder and he was almost blamed for it. and finally what ever happened to the Scotland yard detective she talks about every book. I mite have just missed it. he seems to have been replaced with a private detective that Jon Land drives home way to hard about Jessica not paying him for services. it's funny for a while but it is almost to much. its is still a fun book but if you have listened to the whole series it feels like the new author has not completely done his homework and read the whole series. For fans that have read many of the books there are just many inconsistencies in my opinion .
