You know how much I love Jessica Fletcher! There is a new Murder She Wrote out in this beloved series and you’re going to love it. Let’s go back in time to when Jessica was an English teacher.
n the fiftieth entry in this USA Today bestselling series, two timelines converge as Jessica Fletcher returns to high school to investigate the murder of an old colleague, while we meet Jessica as a young teacher solving her very first murder…
Young Jessica Fletcher’s life couldn’t be more ordinary. She teaches at the local high school while she and her loving husband, Frank, are raising their nephew Grady together. But when the beloved principal dies under mysterious circumstances, Jessica knows something is off and, for the very first time, investigates a death.
Present-day Jessica returns to high school for a colleague’s retirement party and has fun seeing familiar faces. That is, until the colleague winds up dead–and his death has mysterious links to Jessica’s very first murder case.
With nothing but her own instincts to guide her, Jessica embarks on a quest to find out what really happened all those years ago and who’s behind these murders. Because time is running out to catch this killer….
This is the second Jessica Fletcher novel by Jon land, and I liked it even more than the first. First of all, the “Tup” is back. Amos Tupper shows up in this one in modern-day and as a detective in a mystery that goes way back into Jessica’s past when Frank was still alive. It was wonderful hearing some of the backstories on Jessica, Amos, Frank, and Grady and finding out about the very first murder she ever solved as a substitute teacher. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The body count in this one was a little high, but I was riveted to the unfolding of the mystery and getting to visit with some of my favorite characters.
