5.0 out of 5 stars Maine Murder 21 Aug 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Jessica is in her home town, the yearly festival looms, the whole of Cabot cove's fishermen are up in arms over the poor price they get paid, then one of them gets murdered, and jessica is stuck aboard a sinking ship with the dead body!
A great book for anyone who's interested in Cabot Cove, and it's people, Donald Bain writes as expertly as ever and all characters are as believable as ever when reading I can hear in my mind Jessica and Seth having the conversations in the book.
It's got to be on your christmas List if your a Murder she wrote fan

4.0 out of 5 stars A great story for MSW and mystery fans alike 8 Feb 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As a fan rare younger male of Murder, She Wrote I'm sure I'm not the average reader of this book series but this was the first book in the popular range of Murder, She Wrote novels that I've read and I loved it. It's very lighthearted and genuinely feels like it belongs in the same world as what we see on screen. There are parts of the novel which are slightly silly and a bit far fetched but being a Murder, She Wrote tie-in those elements work perfectly and never ruin the story, in fact I don't think these books would be the same if there wasn't a bit of silliness included in them.

Onto the story, which I knew the basic outline before I bought the novel, and because of it's setting in Cabot Cove is one of the main reasons why I decided to make this my first Murder, She Wrote novel. We have many familiar faces here, including Doctor Seth and Sheriff Metzger and many other quirky residents of the small town make up the characters central in this story. The story itself is told in first person, so we get to see the events through Jessica's eyes and often we get her interpretations or thoughts on a particular event. Obviously the writer chooses not to give all of her thoughts away as that would ruin the story, but it's fun being Jessica for a while as the events unfold. Here, the story is set in the midst of Cabot Cove's new "Lobster Festival" and a lot of the action takes place around the town's lobster men who aren't getting a fair cut for the lobster that they catch for a greedy businessman. It wasn't difficult to guess who got murdered, but the murderer was very well crafted and actually surprised me in the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read! 13 Jun 2006
By S. Adey
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first Murder She Wrote book I've read so far. I've been wanting to read a murder mystery book for sometime now and I certainly made the right choice with this one. I'm afraid the book only lasted three days as I've hardly been able to put it down. It was great to read and I can't wait to get started on the next one. My only problem being I can't choose which one. If I could I'd buy them all at once. For anyone who loves the TV series they certainly won't be dissappointed. It is set in Jessica's home town of Cabot Cove and makes you feel like you'd love to live there (as long as you don't get bumped off!). The Doc and the Sherrif are there helping Jessica out too. It's so easy to picture it all. I'll definately be reading this again while I'm waiting for my next one to arrive!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Extra Butter Please 7 May 2005
By Dennis Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When a friend of mine first suggested that I might like the "Murder She Wrote" books, which are based on the television series I must admit that I was a little leery. I was afraid that the books would just be warmed over plots from the show or worse yet, plots that the show's producers had rejected. But given this friend's track record of giving good and sound advice I decided to give one of these books a try and it was a wise decision if I do say so myself.

It seems that Jessica Fletcher's home town, Cabot Cove, is having a lobster festival both to draw tourists and to pay homage to the town's biggest industry. There are dark clouds brewing over the lobster business however as the local buying agent is making every effort to cheat the lobstermen who do all of the backbreaking work. Linc Williams, the head of the Lobstermen's Association is presiding over an organization in turmoil as tempers flair and accusations fly. There are also some fairly mild incidents of vandalism as member turns on member.

Into this mess wades Jessica Fletcher as she trues to write an article on a day in the life of the lobster fishermen for the local paper. As she begins to sense just how dangerous the situation among the lobstermen has become she becomes very worried that the whole affair will explode and completely ruin the lobster festival. The deeper she wades into the situation the darker things become until at last there is a death and an attempted murder and Jessica finds herself in a very grave and dangerous position. As soon as she makes her way out of danger she finds that the Sheriff has arrested a man for the above crimes that she is sure is innocent so she goes to work to prove just that. Thanks to her expert sleuthing the clues soon begin to appear and they point toward places that Jessica wishes they hadn't. In the end the lobster festival is a big success and all turns out well, at least for the innocent.

This book is extremely well written and keeps the reader enthralled in the story. The characters portrayed are very believable and in some cases colorful. Literally colorful in the case of one lady who has been picking lots of blueberries. There are times when the reader will almost be able to feel the salt spray of the ocean and smell the fishiness of the docks. And as with any good mystery, if the one pays close attention, there are enough clues to allow the reader to figure out who done it, as they say. All around, a top notch book that I would highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars another cracking read! 5 July 2005
By M.S.W. Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having read all the Murder She Wrote books by Donald Bain, this one ranks as one of the weaker ones due to a slightly slow pace, however, having said that, even the weakest books in this series are totally enthralling, Donald Bain has a great knack for painting such vivid pictures of people and places in your mind that you could almost be there with them, he has taken what could so easily have been a mediocre paperback TV tie-in series and turned it into an entity in it's own right with high quality plots and superbly rounded characters, this particular story is centered around the inaugural lobster festival in Jessica's Home town of Cabot Cove and sees Jessica become entwined in the sinister and deadly politics of the local lobster industy.

Altogether, as usual another great addition to the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars A loooooong read 29 Jun 2005
By Eileen Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I, like several of the other reviewers of "The Maine Mutiny" have read and enjoyed all of the Murder, She Wrote books available thus far, but am having trouble finishing this one. There seems to be too much detail about lobstering and not enough action. I am happy that the setting is Cabot Cove though - I always enjoyed the tv episodes that were set there more than the ones set elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Former Lobster Woman gives Thumbs-Up 26 Dec 2012
By Ex-Patty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a former lobsterwoman, I was impressed with how well Donald Bain and "Jessica Fletcher" captured the real efforts and lifestyle of lobstermen in New England (save the violence). I do wish they had of paid a bit more attention to women in the profession, but I will admit there are few of us. (Maybe next time.) The joy of the book was the memories spent on the ocean, the smells, the work, the dirt which they brought to life again for me, with new charaters and a different focus. Always a page-turner, this is a lovely series. I regret not being a fan while the TV show was in production (too young), but I sure have enjoyed the re-runs and am thrilled with the publication of new stories in books I can savor.
