A light, fun mystery in the MSW series. This time Jessica is on vacation in Provence, France after swapping houses with a friend there. She becomes embroiled in a mystery when a master chef at a cooking class she has been attending is killed. The book includes interesting details about truffle hunting and the Michelin restaurant rating system.

[As always, this rating is relevant only to this corner of fiction: MSW "novels" and others based on TV shows. Obviously with these mass market, pop fic, "readables" I don't consider the quality of the prose or anything.]

Okay. So I'm addicted to this show. Extremely. Pathetically. I've even read about half a dozen of these books. They're the kind of books you can bring to - not even the beach - a really loud and obnoxious public pool. At least the ones I've read. Maybe there are some that more...more

Great page turner. Easy and fast read.
Really fun to read. I loved the TV program which was based on these stories.
This was my grandmother's favorite television show. She also read every one of these books she could find. So, I inherited them and have to say that they are pretty good for light mystery reading. I dont really know why Bain makes Jessica Fletcher so reserved in such pointed ways regarding her diet, abstinence, and need to go to bed early in all the books, but having seen the show a few times, it is fun hearing Angela Lansbury's voice in my head when I read the dialogue.

This again is comfort reading. Jess is familiar and comfy. It makes way for a good time. I had no idea she spoke French, but it shouldn't suprise me. What can't she do? :)

I like this series because it doen't matter what book you read, like the television show, they are all self contained stories.
Such a great series. The suspense of whom the murderer was ran to the end. I also learned quite a bit about Provence and the French judicial system. The author so vividly describes the scenes, it's easy to be immersed. Looking forward to hearing the entire series!
I am a fan of all of the "Murder She Wrote" books. They are a fun and light read. If you have never read these books before, don't expect a deep book or anything like Agatha Christie or Mary Higgins Clark. These books are more like Janet Evanovich novels.
This book was pretty good. It is the first Jessica Fletcher book that I have ever read. I like the show, so I thought that I would give it a try. It wasn't quite as good as I had expected that it would be.
The story was ok but not big into books that have a lot of foreign names and words and this book has a bit of French in it. Makes it a bit harder for me to read.
cute BS pb-- Jessica house swaps and goes to Provence Italy where she take a cooking class and befriends young American girl Mallory
A nice breezy read. These are nice to have around when you have a free day to read. I also like re-living the TV show!
Delightful murder mystery set in Provence, France. Quite a good portrayal of French village life.

Like the show, Jessica does not disappoint you, very entertaining and a quick read!

It was okay... didn't really like France so I guess it's a good thing I've never been ha.
