Murder, She Wrote: Killing in a Koi Pond by Jessica Fletcher & Terrie Farley Moran

Murder, She Wrote: Killing in a Koi Pond
by Jessica Fletcher & Terrie Farley Moran

Ms. Moran did a fantastic job capturing Jessica and maybe two other people from the show that we fans truly adore.
~Baroness’ Book Trove

Jessica Fletcher is a legend when it comes to solving a mystery. From the moment I picked up this book, I knew I was in for another interesting, mesmerizing, fun mystery. Terrie Farley Moran captured the essence of the series perfectly.
~The Editing Pen

The characters in Killing in a Koi Pond are well written and many of them will endear themselves to you. I especially love “the help” because of their kindness and willingness to go out of their way to make others feel at home.
~Christy’s Cozy Corners

This was a fun, easy-to-read mystery, and the many suspects made figuring out whodunnit a challenge for me.
~Books to the Ceiling

I could hear the voices of my favorite characters on these pages. The new characters have depth and personality and make a strong impression . . . A well-done addition to a fine series.
~Laura’s Interests

MURDER, SHE WROTE: KILLING IN A KOI POND is a delightful addition to this long running series. Fully developed characters, both new and old, inhabit these pages providing rich detail bringing the story to life.
~Cozy Up With Kathy

This book truly felt as if I had been dropped into the show with old friends and new to fill out the cast. I can’t even begin to explain how exciting it was to read Harry Mcgraw in the late Jerry Orbach’s voice.
~I Read What You Write!

It was one of those “oh!” moments when the killer was finally revealed. I love when an author can do that, especially since I had all of the information I needed to figure it out, but still didn’t see it.
~The Book’s the Thing

I can see her cozy past in the more leisurely pacing of this Murder She Wrote novel. Though I missed Cabot Cove, it was pleasant to visit Columbia, South Carolina.
~Diane Reviews Books

Moran does an excellent job of portraying characters and plot lines that fans of the show expect. This cozy mystery keeps readers guessing, but leaves the violence off the page. Like sipping your favorite tea, Killing in a Koi Pond is guaranteed to put a smile on your face whether it’s your first foray into the novels or your 53rd.
~Author Elena Taylor

A very enjoyable cozy mystery with familiar old friends.

When a friend’s husband dies while Jessica Fletcher is in town visiting, Jessica’s vacation turns into a murder investigation in this latest entry in the long-running USA Today bestselling series.


After traveling to Bethesda for a mystery writers’ conference, Jessica Fletcher decides she’s earned a vacation and takes a train to Columbia, South Carolina, to visit her old college friend Dolores, who has recently married her third husband, Willis Nickens, a wealthy and cutthroat businessman. They’ve moved into an opulent historic home with plenty of space for guests, and Jessica is ready for a week of shopping, gossiping, and relaxing at the grand estate.


But the morning after she arrives, Jessica discovers Willis facedown in the koi pond, and despite what the police think, she’s sure foul play is involved. She hadn’t known Willis long, but it’s clear to her that he didn’t concern himself with making friends. The question isn’t if her friend’s husband was murdered but by whom.
