Ten Questions about “Murder, She Wrote”
The “Murder, She Wrote” books by Jessica Fletcher and Donald Bain are marking their 25th anniversary this year. Thanks so much to Shelley Giusti for helping us celebrate.
Forty-two books have been published in the series, all still in print, and a 43rd is scheduled to be released next Spring. Here are ten questions for MSW fans. Some you’ll be able to answer even if you’ve only watched the television show, but for others, you’ll need to know a little about the books. Most of the answers can be found somewhere at www.donaldbain.com. Leave a comment and email address below to be entered in the drawing for a hardcover copy of the latest in the “Murder, She Wrote” mystery series, Death of a Blue Blood. Good Luck!
