MURDER, SHE WROTE: THE QUEEN'S JEWELS
By Jessica Fletcher and Donald Bain
NAL Hardcover, October 5, 2010 ($22.95)
Reviewed by Cherie Jung
Jessica Fletcher is excited to have the opportunity to take a transatlantic cruise on the Queen Mary 2. She plans to fly to London, spend a few days there, then depart from Southampton on the QM2 and enjoy a leisurely return sail. No e-mail, no phones, no writing deadlines...
However, she finds herself at sea with a murderer as she attempts to find a precious stolen diamond.
Longtime fans will find much to savor in THE QUEEN'S JEWELS, including some favorite recurring characters from the series. The mystery is convoluted, there are many many suspects, there are old friends, suspense, and danger. An intriguing mix, to be sure. Of the 34 books in the series, I think this is one of the best. Readers new to the series (is that even possible?!?) can pick up all the background information they need as they go.
THE QUEEN'S JEWELS is a fun, fast-paced read. It left me wishing I were Jessica Fletcher and that I were going on a transatlantic cruise in the near future!
