Great Book: Murder She Wrote "prescription for Murder"

Recently I (Rob) finished reading one of the latest in the Murder She Wrote mystery series called "Prescription for
Murder" There are about 30 books in the series, and all have them have been top notch. This was no exception. In fact, this was very memorable, and had twists and turns in it- that brought Dr. Seth Hazlitt (Jessica's best friend in Cabot Cove, Maine) front and center into the mystery. Dr. Hazlitt befriended a Doctor seeking a cure for Alzheimer's disease and was getting funding for it from people who were hoping for a big payoff. The catch is that the doctor and his wife also fled Cuba and found asylum in the U.S. There were a number of people with stakes in the doctor's research, including people in high places.    The book has an interesting ending and was enjoyable and memorable.  
  Usually it takes me a couple of weeks to finish a novel, but I finished this in five days flat- I couldn't put it down. Of course, I highly recommend it.
 Here's the book summary: 
Jessica’s latest book tour brings her to Tampa, Florida, where she meets up with an old friend, Cabot Cove’s Dr. Seth Hazlitt. Seth is in town visiting Alvaro Vasquez, a renowned physician who is developing a potentially groundbreaking cure for Alzheimer’s disease. If he’s successful, his American backers stand to make millions. But there’s a growing fear that the drug may fall into the wrong hands.

Jessica attends a party at Vasquez’s lavish home, but the celebration ends abruptly when Vasquez seems to be struck by lightning. Jessica and Seth do some digging into the physician’s checkered past and learn that his death was no accident. As they work together to find a cure for the common killer, they become enmeshed in international intrigue involving the local police, the FBI, and the CIA—and begin to wonder whether they’ll ever see Cabot Cove again.


Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
