In Death on the Emerald Isle, Jessica is already doing a favor for a friend by attending a book conference in Ireland in her stead. Now, she is also returning some paintings to their Irish homeland for her neighbor. Jessica being Jessica she is soon embroiled in a mystery when she finds a local doctor dead. Cue the Murder She Wrote music that I can still hear in my head over thirty years after the original television series was cancelled.
It is always such a pleasure to hang out with Jessica. I hope to have such an exciting life when I’m her age, which appears to be fast approaching. The suspects, clues and red herrings are all in place for armchair detectives to unravel. It was also nice to get a bit of a travelogue of Ireland. 4 stars and a fun read!
Thanks to Berkley Books, Great Escapes Book Tours, and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.

A trip to Northern Ireland becomes unexpectedly grim for Jessica Fletcher in this new entry in the USA Today bestselling Murder, She Wrote series.
Jessica Fletcher is quick to accept an invitation to replace a speaker who couldn’t attend a Book Festival in Belfast, Ireland. When her Cabot Cove neighbor Maeve O’Bannon hears about the trip, she asks Jessica to deliver some paintings to her family in the village of Bushmills. Happy to extend her travels and see more of the Irish countryside, Jessica agrees.
The festival goes off without a hitch, and it seems like Jessica is in for a relaxing vacation. But then Maeve’s cousin Michael is discovered dead under suspicious circumstances. Jessica finds herself once again in the midst of a murder investigation, and she’ll have to dig into the O’Bannon family’s secrets to unmask the killer.
