engaging whodunit April 29 2011
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In Cabot Cove, Maine, Olympic Gold medalist Bruce Devlin trains promising figure skating pair Christine Allen and Russian Alexei Olshansky. Christine does not like either male as her coach is a demanding perfectionist who rejects anything less than the best; her pompous partner believes he is Russia's gift to the American female population. Still at the Cabot Cove Ice Arena she endures both as they are her platform to success in skating pair competition.

However, accidents begin to occur with a frequency that makes local Dr. Seth Hazlitt feel they are deliberate. Soon afterward Alexei is murdered and another skater Jeremy is hammered into a coma. Sheriff Mort Metzger and novelist Jessica Fletcher investigate Skating on Thin Ice.

After the mostly recent road tour (see A Slaying in Savannah, Madison Avenue Shoot, Queen Jewels and Nashville Noir), Jessica returns home to Cabot Cove where she investigates the Alexei homicide and related felonies. Her being back in Maine is a two edged sword as that locale has been the prime place for the myriad of books and the TV series, but also brings a deja vu feel to the plot. Still this is an engaging whodunit in which readers will never look at a Zamboni in the same way.

another cabot cove read April 15 2011
By Florida Shopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I love the Murder She Wrote books that take place in Cabot Cove. Fall and winter settings are my favorite. I think this was a well written book with plenty of suspense. I just wish there were less books where Jessica is abroad and more in cabot cove. Good read!
Just an OK bedtime story Aug. 10 2013
By MPWI - Published on Amazon.com

Someone in scenic, quaint Cabot Cove, Maine, home to famed mystery writer Jessica Fletcher, is "Skating on Thin Ice" after a Russian figure skater is found dead. Set in the dead of winter - if you'll pardon the pun - this installment in the Murder, She Wrote series is OK, certainly not a par with others in the series. Some of the dialogue was inane; the author placed too many characters amongst the clues, which made solving the mystery impossible, unless you're a reader who has the time to read the book in one or two sittings, which I don't. However, there are two passages in this book I found comforting. At one point in the story, Jessica tells her reader, "I went directly home from Mort's (the sheriff) office, started a fire in the fireplace, made myself a cup of soup, and settled in for some serious thinking. I left the lights off and enjoyed the peace the darkened room and roaring fire created, the flames tossing flickering shafts of orange light onto the ceiling and walls." At story's end, Jessica, while sitting among her Cabot Cover friends during a skating event, signs off by saying, "A roar of approval rose from the crowd. I clapped my hands, and next to me Seth Hazlitt (her best friend) gave out a loud whistle. I smiled. Aside from an occasional murder, Cabot Cove, Maine, is a wonderful place to live, and I count my blessings every day." If you're looking for a bedtime story on a cold winter's night, "Skating on Thin Ice" may warm you, but I do hope the remarkable Jessica Fletcher has better winters ahead.

The writer who... April 11 2011
By Laura M. Rowell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This series is beginning to remind me a lot of the old "Cat Who..." series - it seems to be the same old, same old over and over again - with each book getting progressively worse.
The dialog, settings, characters - they all seem recycled from previous novels.
With that being said, this book isn't "bad", but it's not a book you have to really focus on while reading - I guess in a word: Hollow
I'm not entirely writing this series off, it's a good summer read if you're stretched out on a beach, but it's not a novel you can sink your teeth into and lose yourself in either.
Love Cabot Cove Nov. 6 2012

I only buy and read the 'Murder She Wrote' books that take place in CC. I love the familiar characters and places, and the strong ties Jessica has to her home and community. There is something warm and cozy about reading a story set in CC. However, I don't think this was one of the best of CC mysteries. The story was very slow to develop, but did pick up once the murder happened and Jessica got busy. I loved how Jessica was 'googling' various things to help Mort with his investigation.

I am wondering if anyone can tell me how Mort ended up with a second wife, Maureen? What happened to Adele, the invisible wife?
