Come il primo amore, anche la prima indagine non si scorda mai. Lo sa bene Jessica Fletcher, che in tutti questi anni non ha mai parlato con nessuno del suo primo caso di omicidio. A quel tempo non era ancora una scrittrice di gialli, ma solo una supplente di Letteratura inglese. Viveva ad Appleton, a mezz'ora da Cabot Cove, insieme al marito Frank e al nipote Grady, che avevano cresciuto come un figlio dopo che il padre era rimasto vittima di un incidente automobilistico. A sconvolgere la sua vita ordinaria era stata la morte, in circostanze misteriose, dell'amato preside della scuola, Walter Reavis: per la prima volta Jessica si era messa sulle tracce di un assassino al fianco di un improvvisato detective, lo sceriffo Amos Tupper, dimostrando innate doti investigative e un fiuto spiccato. Sono passati venticinque anni da allora e quando, durante un'intervista per il giornale scolastico, una giovane reporter le chiede di quella vicenda, Jessica si insospettisce. Un nuovo misterioso omicidio e l'inaspettato invito alla festa di pensionamento di una vecchia collega di Appleton la convincono che i collegamenti con la sua prima indagine sono decisamente troppi per trattarsi di una coincidenza. Con solo il suo infallibile istinto a guidarla, Jessica cercherà di scoprire cosa sia davvero successo negli ultimi venticinque anni e chi sia il responsabile di quella scia di morte. C'è un conto aperto col passato, e nel crimine - come nella vita - non si finisce mai di imparare...

**3.5-stars rounded up** When a young woman seeks Jessica out to question her about the first murder case Jessica ever solved, under the guise of working on a story for her high school newspaper, plenty of memories are drawn to the surface from that time 25-years ago.

I am not holding back with this review... there are so many things wrong with this book. Granted, it's not as terrible as Land's second MSW outing, "Manuscript for Murder" but this one is still pretty bad. First off, the book's story heads back 25 years to what must be the early to mid 1990s. Jessic Leggi tutto
I absolutely loved Angela Lansbury as Jessica Fletcher in Murder She Wrote. I watched the show every week when it was on television and still re-watch the series today. I love the characters, the setting and the cozy-ness of the series. No spurting blood.....no graphic sex or violence. Just an autho Leggi tutto
Wow, #50 in the Murder She Wrote series and I have enjoyed reading the books and watching the TV reruns. How about you?

I can't give a book zero stars. I would've done that for this book. Once again, Jon Land makes Jessica Fletcher, Seth Hazlitt and Mort Metzger rude, mean, bitter, bickering people. That is just not true to the original spirit and tone of the series. The mystery in this book is better than many of Lan Leggi tutto
An interview with a high school journalist reminds Jessica Fletcher of her first case--before she was a famous novelist, and when her beloved husband was still alive. It's a case that came so close to home that she has never discussed it. Then she finds that the high school girl who interviewed her
Murder, She Wrote: A Time for Murder by "Jessica Fletcher" and Jon Land is the fiftieth book in the popular series, and the first one I've read. Although it was entertaining, the climax was so over-the-top and implausible, along with other implausible elements, that I found myself questioning the st Leggi tutto
Well loyal readers, the time has finally come! The 50th Jessica Fletcher Murder, She Wrote novel has arrived!! Author Jon Land, who took over the creation of this series a few years back, has slid so easily into the driver's seat and allowed fans to not miss a single Cabot Cove slice of pie at the l Leggi tutto
