PERMANENT VACATION?

All thoughts of having a quick lunch evaporated a few minutes later when a mariachi band stepped onto the terrace. I ate and listened to the band members as they threaded their way among the umbrellas to serenade each of the tables.
 The music helped ease the tension of my hectic last few weeks. It was nice to be on vacation. I love to travel, but book tours can be exhausting. While I enjoy meeting new people, especially readers, and seeing new places, it’s always a pleasant prospect to contemplate a few weeks with nothing specific to do but sit back and relax. No notes to take, no schedules to meet, no rush to catch another plane.
 Vaughan and Olga were the perfect hosts. They insisted I use their home as if it were mine. They had promised that I wouldn’t be in their way. “We’ll even ignore you, if that’s what you want.” Which, of course, wasn’t what I wanted at all. What I did want was time. Time to renew our acquaintance. Time to stretch out with a book. Time to take leisurely walks in a charming town. Just a peaceful vacation with old friends. It sounded wonderful.
But I was in for a rude awakening...

Format: Hardcover
Over the course of this series Jessica's publisher Vaughan Buckley and his wife Olga have taken on a more and more important role. At first they would just appear on occasion when Jessica had finished a book or when she was in New York. Finally Jessica spent a vacation at an Inn near the Buckley's home in the Hamptons and in this entry she is spending some time with them in yet another of their vacation homes. This time, unlike Jessica's trip to the Hamptons, the Buckley's are at the very center of the story from beginning to end and despite missing Seth and Mort, I found this story to be a very refreshing change. I do however hope and expect to see the Cabot Cove crew back at the forefront of the next book.

Vaughan and Olga have purchased a vacation home in rural Mexico and Jessica goes for a visit. Once she is there she meets a large group of Americans and Canadians who have retired to the area. As usual, Donald Bain does an excellent job of creating the characters with whom Jessica will interact. Some are very likable while others were so irritating that I found myself hurrying to get through the sections in which they appeared. Just like real people however, all of these characters are not really all that they seem to be but with Jessica on the case no one's secrets are safe.

"The case" in this book involves the kidnapping of Vaughan Buckley while he is on a trip with the outgoing and gregarious Woody Manheim who is retired from the military. When the pair does not return on time Olga, who was against the trip from the beginning, calls the police who find the pair's abandoned car along with a blood soaked handkerchief.

Format: Hardcover
Yet another solid Murder She Wrote novel from the safe hands of Donald Bain, as always Mr Bain's easy to read style creates vivid images in you mind of people and places, his knack seems to be that he can do this witout the reader ever feeling that the story is becoming bogged down.

As others have mentioned the only real problem is Jesica's missing friends from back in Cabot Cove, not even the usual mention of the likes of Mort or Seth, or of Mara's Luncheonette or Charlene Sassi's bakery.

Still all told this is a solid installment in the series, can't wait for the next (which I believe is the final book in the current contact, however Mr Bain has just signed a contract for another four books in the series!)

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best Murder She Wrote books thus far. While normally the stories set in Cabot Cove are the most enjoyable, this one set in Mexico with her publisher friends is just as good. I completely forgot about Seth and Mort back home and this time they were not missed. There's a lot of action right from the start and the ending is very well done.

Format: Hardcover
Jessica Fletcher is off to Mexico to visit her publisher, Vaughn, and his wife, Olga, in their new vacation home in Mexico. Her arrival is fraught with problems. Then Vaughn is kidnapped while on the mail run with a friend. Jessica has to get to know more of the Americans living there to try to figure out who has kidnapped Vaughn and why. I love this series. Since I've never been to Mexico, I really enjoyed the setting in this book. It was interesting seeing it through the eyes of Americans who had moved there due to the cheaper cost of living. Can't wait to read more in this series. I can always see Jessica in my mind while reading. And when books are set in Cabot Cove, I can see it as I read about it. I highly recommend this book and series.

I enjoy all of the "Murder She Wrote" books and "Margaritas & Murders" was no exception. Like all of the books, this one had an interesting setting and likable characters. I enjoyed this book even without all of Jessica's Cabot Cove friends; I thought it made it more believable that they would accompany her on every trip.

If you like the "Murder She Wrote" series, then you will enjoy this installment as well.

Format: Hardcover
"Margaritas and Murder" is a standard par-for-the-course novel in the "Murder She Wrote" mystery series. Taking place in a small town in Mexico where her publisher and his wife have a summer home, the story revolves around the kidnapping of her publisher and the murder of another american who take I road trip together while she is visiting. In the midst of the investigating the murder/kidnapping on her own (as she always does) Jessica find herself dealing with an assorted cast of characters ranging from the other Americans who live in the small town, the local residents and the possibly corrupt government officials. It would have been easy for this book to portray the people of Mexico with the usual tired stereotypes, but for the most part, the locals are portrayed in a dignified fashion. There are some twists along the way, and the ending, while mildly surprising, is not out of this world for those who love the rest of the series. The writing, as usual, is easy to follow and makes an enjoyable afternoon read. It is not great literature - but it does make for a great afternoon of reading. If you have enjoyed the rest of the series, you will probably enjoy this one as well.
