    oh jessica, where did we go wrong? it's not just the stetson hat.ours was a relationship built on mutual love and affection. you were like the childless grandmother i always wished i had. then, they sold the rights to your stories to a man whose name makes me giggle. here's part of the problem: mr. bain is as comfortable inside a woman's head as elizabeth hasselbeck is at the democratic national convention. he eliminates some of the strife by assuming the persona of a septuagenarian mystery writer whose libido has shriveled up many moons ago; however, when jessica must interact with members of the opposing gender she gets all type A and stand-offish. laura mulvey would rant about the spectacle of the male gaze or gender masquerade, i'll settle for something more simple. the difference between an author who comfortably writes from the female perspective and this one is huge.oh and the murderer is so easy to spot you'll get sort of pissed that it's taking jessica so long to get her act together and solve it.

    I really enjoyed this book. Jessica Fletcher is one of my favorite characters. As I read, I can just see Angela Lansbury getting into trouble. I have read all 33 of the Murder, She Wrote mysteries and have never tired of the character or the stories. I recommend them to mystery readers who want a gentle read.

    I love the Murder She Wrote novels even though I never watched the show when it originally aired. Jessica Fletcher has grown on me over the last several years. As you can see, this is the 33rd in the series and I've read each and every one of them.

    I am a big fan of classic TV shows, and when I found out there were books for Murder She Wrote... I almost tackled my computer trying to put one on hold! I totally love Jessica but I don't really like it that they put Jessica Fletcher as an author when she is just a fictional character.

    I thought this Jessica Fletcher book was better written than some of the others that I have read.

    Another good installment to the best-selling mystery series. This one wasn't my favorite - I didn't really like any of the supporting characters, besides the accused girl's attorney. I didn't find Nashville, as a location, that exciting either and totally didn't buy Jessica in a Stetson hat. Despite these few misgivings it was definitely good and I will of course continue with the series!

    Interesting look into the music industry in Nashville....I enjoyed this book! Rather easy to figure out (though it took me 2/3 of the book to guess who dun it...).

    A quick read but it nicely outlined the Nashville music scene with well described characters.

    In this installment of the "Murder, She Wrote" mysteries, we encounter the case of the murdered publicist. The primary in this story is Cindy Blaskowitz who goes to Nashville at the wishes of the CCC in hopes of becoming Cabot Cove's first country music superstar. When a song gets taken by another artist via essentially her publicist Roderick Marker & he turns up dead she becomes the prime suspect since her bloody fingerprints were found on a CMA award. Since it would help one of Maine's own, Jessica Fletcher travels to Nashville & ends the world of country music & along the way a rather routine mystery comes about. "Nashville Noir" is the first book I've read in this series & for me it's almost as if this could in fact be an episode of this long running television series from the 1980s which is both a plus and a minus. Bain essentially keeps you guessing as to whodunit for the majority of the book & introduces the true culprit early on & then that character vanishes into the background. As a TV episode this probably would've work & as a mystery novel somewhat. It's just a simple read in a series that put Angela Landsbury back on the map & into our homes for so many Sunday nights.

    Cyndi Gariel from Cabot Cove is a promising country-and-western singer and songwriter. Jessica Fletcher and a local citizens committee send her on a scholarship trip to Nashville, Tennessee, where she can benefit from professional instruction and influence. Weeks later, everyone is shocked when Cyndi is charged with the murder of a not-always-liked music producer. Cyndi's mother begs Jessica to help her daughter, so Jessica travels to the country music capitol to lend a hand. Jessica discovers that the victim was no gentleman, with his list of ex-wives, cheated partners, swindled singers, and damaged lives. And if she can't uncover the true culprit, Jessica knows that Cyndi will not get a second chance. As always, fast-paced, and Jessica is always a valiant detective.

    In Nashville Noir, Jessica Fletcher goes to Nashville to help Cindy beat a murder wrap. Cindy, who lives in Cabot Cove but was sent to Nashville by a Cabot Cove group to hone her singing skills, is accused of murdering a music mogul. The motive-the mogul stole one of Cindy's songs and gave it to an up and coming country star to record. Jessica, feeling that Cindy needs a familiar face, heads to Nashville to help clear Cindy's name....and, surprise!! She does!I love the Murder, She Wrote television shows, even after all these years. The books are very similar to the show. The books are definitely "formula" books,, but still a fun read. Great summer reads as they murder plots are easy to follow.

    Not one of my favorite in the series. First, I'm not a country music fan so the general setting didn't interest me. But mostly I didn't like Cindy, the accused, very much. I know she was young, but she made stupid decisions that made it hard for me to root for her. Also, the book kept repeating things as if it didn't expect the reader to remember facts previously mentioned. I did enjoy the detective and Cindy's attorney, though, and of course it's always fun to see Jessica in action. Still, I don't think this was one of the best books about her.

    This book like all the others in the series was very good. An interesting and fun mystery with unique characters and an exciting plot. One aspect of this book that differs from the others was Jessica's relationship with the accused murderer. While she was friends with the accused she was not as close to her as she has been to others making the story more interesting because she did hold some doubt regarding her innocence. This change in relationship was a nice switch and added to the story. Overall, a fun read.

    Good installment in the Murder She Wrote Series. Jessica Fletcher doesn't know much about the world of country music, but she finds herself embroiled in a Nashville murder mystery when a young girl from Cabbot Cove is accused of murdering a music producer who stole her song.I love reading these stories because it's nice to see them narrated from a first person perspective, and get into Jessica's head so to speak. The author does a great job with the character, and it continues the fun of the television show.

    Another enjoyable read in my favourite cozy mystery series. Jessica Fletcher once again involves us in an interesting murder mystery. I like how this series takes us to different parts of the United States and sometimes the world and provides us with insights into different cultures or occupations. This time, the focus is on the country music industry in Nashville and some of the less glamorous and savory aspects of it. I always enjoy travelling along with Jessica and watching her at work solving mysteries.

    I sometimes grab a quick mystery after reading a couple of "heavier" books. Despite being a little corny, the mysteries in the Fletcher/Bain series are usually pretty good. This one was okay but nothing inspired. Often books in this series also serve as a bit of a travelogue, but little about Nashville, beyond the music business scene, was included. Oh, well, it served its purpose in terms of providing a bit of a literary break.

    I enjoyed this installment of the Murder, She Wrote series. This tv show was a favorite of mine as a child. I always watched with my mom on Sunday nights. The books feel comfortable because of the familiar characters and cozy mystery style. This is a series I go back to when I want to be reminded of fond memories. Perhaps an odd thing to say about a series with "murder" in the title but for anyone who knows my mother and I, it would come as no surprise! :-)

    When a Cabot Cove teenager goes to Nashville to make the country music scene and ends up accused of murdering a slimy record producer, it's Jessica Fletcher to the rescue. Jessica travels to Nashville and meets a variety of people connected with the music scene before pointing a finger at the previously unsuspected culprit.

    Took me forever to read because I have been playing games on the iPad at bedtime instead of reading, ha. I really like the ones that involve people Jessica knows from home or the ones that take place in Cabot Cove.

    I use to always watch the TV Murder, She Wrote, each Sunday evening, and I enjoyed it. Now when I need a shot of Jessica Fletcher I read one of her books. And again I wasn't disappointed with this book, I found it a fun book to read.

    This is another enjoyable quick mystery read featuring a well-known likable character: Jessica Fletcher. The author does a great job presenting the mystery so that you can almost see and hear what is happening.

    You may learn more than you ever wanted to know about the business of country music in Nashville.I wish more emphasis had been put into character development. One of the main characters was a total wimp… No way she would be successful as a musical artist.

    I enjoyed Nashville Noir. This is the first Murder, She Wrote mystery I've read but I always enjoyed the series. Jessica gets an edge to her when she has to help others face reality. I liked that. Fun read for a summer's night.

    You get to see the seedy underbelly of the music industry in this mystery. Jessica was a bit over done in this novel. Too goody, goody.
