Coffee, Tea or Murder? by Jessica Fletcher & Donald Bain

Like a well-worn robe, a favorite chair, an old friend - this book is comforting, familiar, fun.  For anyone who has seen the television series (and I've seen every episode a dozen times) this is entertaining, no-brainer reading.   Jessica Fletcher, Doc Hazlett, Sheriff Mort - all the hometown faces of Cabot Cove show up to solve another mystery. 

I have heard non-fans of the show complain "it's the same thing every week", but that's what draws a reader/viewer into any good series -returning to a family of characters.  This story was true to the tv show and, therefore easy to envision as I read.  Narrator Cynthia Darlow's authentic New England dialect and Scottish brogue (for Scotland Yard Inspector George Sutherland) made the audio version even more enjoyable.  I recommend the Murder She Wrote books to fans of the show who are eager for a new Jessica mystery and to cozy mystery fans in general.
