Hollywood has invaded Cabot Cove!! One of Jessica's older books is going to the big screen. The producer decided to go on location because the book was loosely based on a murder that shocked Cabot Cove years ago.

The murder occurred when a judge, walking her dog, was gunned down. The prime suspect was a husband whom the judge ruled against in a child custody case. Then it turned to the judge's husband and his mistress, who could have been eliminating the competition.

However, it seems everyone on the set has a hidden agenda. A novice director wants his shot at the big time. A fading star that wants to shine once again has outlandish demands. And to top it off, a stranger is stalking Jessica.

Jessica must find a killer when the actress playing the judge is fatally shot - the only witness is her dog - and there is a cast and crew of possible suspects.

Once again, Jessica is right in the thick of things. How can she not be when everything is going on in her own backyard? Not to mention the fact that one of her older books is being made into a movie and they are filming it right in Cabot Cove. Seth warned her that she was going to get herself in trouble, and sure enough, that's exactly what she did.

I can't say enough about this book and all of the other Murder, She Wrote books. Each one is a joy to read. You get wrapped up in the story and rack your brain trying to solve it before you get to the end of the book. If you love puzzles and solving mysteries, this is the book for you. So curl up with your favorite blanket, a cup of hot tea (or hot chocolate) and read away.
