Letters from Cabot Cove

Hello Dear,

It’s a cloudy and rainy day here in Cabot Cove. I’ve just ended a very productive morning of writing my next novel, The Corpse Stands Alone. Sherriff Tupper is on his way over for a cup of coffee and I thought I’d take a moment to check in on you.

How are you?

You look well. How long has it been since we’ve seen each other? I remember somebody died…but I knew you didn’t do it. You’re so pure and good. Didn’t we luck out finding that duck in Dr. Walldrop’s closet? If we hadn’t, your goose would have been cooked! Ah, those were the days.
I’m looking forward very much to my upcoming trip to Iraq with the USO. I will be travelling with my niece, Julie. You remember Julie, don’t you? She is a national twirling champ. Anyway, she’ll need me there to replace sequins and put my homemade aloe tincture on her burns after her “Flames of Freedom” act. I also plan on handing out free autographed copies of my last number one best seller, Major Dead, to our fighting boys so far from home.

Oh, here’s Amos! I’ll wind this up for now. Please write soon. I’ll keep you posted from the front. I’m sure to run into the dashing Michael Hagarty that close to the war and he always makes things interesting.
Fondly,
Jessica

  2. I know you don't watch Craig Ferguson's show, but he portrayed her in a comedy skit last night. Hmmm, must be something in the air.

  4. I always wanted to see an episode where Jessica breaks down and has to be treated for PTSD because of all the murders she's been forced to deal with in her tiny little town.

    Forget New Orleans or Detroit or Washington DC--Cabot Cove, per capita, has to be the murder capital of the world.

  5. You really never wanted to attend a party the Jessica was going to attend, chances are you might meet a nasty death!

  6. Seriously, I'd just as soon leave her off the guest list.
