Although the television show was cancelled years ago, senior sleuth Jessica Fletcher continues to solve mysteries, this time in her quaint village of Cabot Cove, Maine. Cynthia Darlow performs with just the right combination of spunk and humility. Darlow has perfected the Maine accent and has ample opportunity to prove herself with a wide cast of lobstermen and other townsfolk. The community is working to produce a summer festival, but plans go amiss when one of the villagers is found murdered. Although Jessica finds herself in several dangerous situations, Darlow is able to portray her level-headedness. Darlow's ability to render a strong sense of place will leave the listener's mouth watering for a taste of butter-drenched lobster. K.M.D. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
