director of the Cabot Cove Women’s Shelter asks Jessica
to join the board of directors. Being civic-minded she readily
accepts in spite of the fact that an unreasonable city councilman
is determined to see the shelter closed.
while Jessica is at the shelter, a battered and bruised woman
walks in. However, her husband is a well-respected pillar
of the community. Unfortunately, despite Jessica’s support
and advice, the woman refuses to stay or even report the abuse
or press charges. A few days later the town is shocked to
learn that domestic abuse has turned to murder.
while investigating the crime, Jessica learns that the woman’s
family has a few skeletons in the closet that go way beyond
domestic violence. The real killer could be hiding behind
a wall of silence that could send the wrong person to prison.
I love Jessica’s mysteries. It is always so much fun
trying to solve it before you get to the end of the book.
This one is no exception. The ones that take place in Cabot
Cove are always the best ones. If you loved the TV series,
you’ll love the books even more.
