i used to watch all the Murder, She Wrote series on TV and loved them! I never read any of her books until now and I found it a wonderful "cozy" type mystery. Anyone who likes cozy mysteries will like this book. In this one Jessica is invited to visit an old friend at his castle in Scotland...and is told the story of the ghost who haunts the castle. Jessica must deal not only with the ghost but also with the tragic murder of a young girl who worked at the castle. Good read.
