Book 1

First post in ages on here, had one hell of a busy year so reading has mostly involved half reading books. But finally I have finished one!

1. Murder, She Wrote: The Highland Fling Murders - Jessica Fletcher and Donald Bain

Blurb: Jessica Fletcher and a gorup of her friends from Cabot Cove, Maine, take off for the British Isles and end up at a castle in Scotland. It would be a great vacation - except for the ghost. And the murders. Scotland's most celebrated witch, executed long ago with a pitchfork through her heart, is said to haunt Inspector George Sutherland's family castle in the village of Wick. It's an intriguing tale and after a British book tour, Jessica accepts Sutherland's invitation to bring her Cabot Cove friends to the heather-covered Highlands. Indeed, after "roamin' in the gloamin'" with the handsome inspector, she spots a spectral woman in white in the gloomy castle. But Jessica's blood runs cold when she later finds a local lass executed in the same way as the legendary witch. Something is very vile in Wick. It's a case of evil, greed, and murder that pits Jessica Fletcher against a killer from this world - or maybe the next.
My Opinion: The only thing to say about this book is that it is as far-fetched as the TV series!
