Friday Linkups - A Date with Murder
It's Friday linkup time! I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice
This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
Have you ever thought of writing a respectful, but angry letter to ask them WHY they killed off one of your favorite characters in a novel?
Most of the novels I read now are either mysteries where the dead people are unknown or unlikable or fiction with a pretty low death count. However, when I was a kid I was absolutely livid when Louisa May Alcott killed off a character in the sequel to Eight Cousins called Rose in Bloom. As an adult I can see why she killed him off but as a kid I was furious and definitely would have considered a letter if that had been an option.
"Come on, Jess - everything's riding on you."
While I would definitely trust Jessica Fletcher to take care of just about anything I do wonder what's going on in this beginning. It turns out it's a game of horseshoes and as someone who's super competitive I do see this as important!
He flirted with the thinnest of smiles. "From reading your books, Mrs. Fletcher, I can tell you obviously know that's not the case."
"I write fiction."
Did I mention I love Jessica Fletcher? She's just fantastic and she doesn't allow anyone to get all condescending on her.
So what do you think? Keep reading? Are you a Murder, She Wrote fan?
