Murder She Wrote has always been a favorite in our household, both the books and the television series. The tradition continues with the latest volume, "Hook, Line, and Murder". It never ceases to amaze me how Jessica Fletcher can take the most insignificant thing and transform it into a major clue. As usual, she’s got the solution to the murder well in hand, but not before a series of terrifying events. I particularly love the way they weave minor characters we’ve never seen from the old series into the books, case in point, the sheriff’s wife in this one, Maureen Metzger. Keep ‘em coming! Four and a half paws!!!!
