“Lovers and Other Killers” by James Anderson – A Book Review

As a fan of the classic TV show “Murder, She Wrote,” it thrilled me to have the opportunity to read “Lovers and Other Killers,” the third book in the “Murder, She Wrote” book series by James Anderson. I’m happy to say that I was not disappointed!

From the first page, it transported me back to my childhood, watching the TV show with my family. James Anderson has perfectly emulated the writing style of the show, making it feel like I was reading an episode. Anyone can easily enjoy the book, as they wrote the series in a way where you can pick up any of the books out of order and still know what’s going on.

The plot of “Lovers and Other Killers” was well-developed and kept me engaged throughout. The twists pleasantly surprised me and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. The character development particularly impressed me, as all the characters, including Tom’s attraction to Jessica, were likable and well-written.

As for the representation of the main characters, Jessica Fletcher was, in true fashion, the epitome of grace, intelligence, and patience. I love how she treats everyone on the same level, never considering anyone beneath her. The book stays true to the tone and atmosphere of the “Murder, She Wrote” series and does justice to the TV show and its beloved characters.

In conclusion, I would highly recommend “Lovers and Other Killers” to anyone who has Gen X nostalgia, loves cozy mysteries, or reads Agatha Christie books. The book is a faithful representation of the TV show and is sure to transport you back to the world of Jessica Fletcher. I even went so far as to watch the TV show after I read the book, and I can say that the book is an accurate representation of the story.

Thank you for taking the time to read my review. I hope it helps you in your decision to read “Lovers and Other Killers” by James Anderson.
