Finished this one for book club.
Since I love the TV show so much I was expecting this to be similar to an episode. Unfortunately that was not the case. The characters are different in disposition. And the text was more graphic for the sake of shock; a lot of extra detail not needed for the case. I can‘t wait to hear what the others have to say about it.

PathfinderNicole I LOVE the Murdoch Mysteries tv show so, so much! I enjoyed the books but they‘re almost a totally different vibe than the show. Like Crabtree is a completely different person 2mo

CrowCAH @PathfinderNicole that‘s what I‘m afraid of that the characters will be loosely based off of the book. 2mo
Laughterhp Oo I read these all so long ago when I was obsessed with the tv show. The tv show is so much better! If I remember correctly, Julia isn‘t really in the books or isn‘t as prominent. 2mo
LiseWorks One of my favorite shows 2mo
CrowCAH @Laughterhp from what I‘ve read so far, the books is okay. I definitely like the TV show! But I‘m giving the book a chance. 1mo
CrowCAH @LiseWorks agree! I live close enough to Canada in MetroDetroit that I‘m able to watch the new season on CBC on Monday nights! 1mo
LiseWorks Do you watch other shows on CBC? There are quite a few that I like as a Canadian @CrowCAH 1mo
CrowCAH @LiseWorks over the years I‘ve gotten away from watching a lot of TV shows. But I did watch the Rick Mercer Report and This Hour Has 22 Minutes; both informative and funny! Then I religiously watched the Republic of Doyle when it was on; amazing show!!! 1mo

Something about a plain black book is so appealing to me.

End of the semester is here, which means the end of my undergrad. It's so surreal to think I'm finishing this amazing journey online but alas, that's the way it is. It also brings new beginnings, like starting my Master's degree in the fall and (hopefully) new job in a few weeks!

MsMelissa Yay!! Congratulations 🎉🍾👩🏻‍🎓 3y
Kelsey18 @MsMelissa thank you!! I have one more short assignment but I'm celebrating early with a weekend of reading! 3y

I‘ve seen the series: time to read the books. And I‘m sorry, Maureen Jennings: regardless of how you originally wrote Constable Crabtree, he‘s going to have a Newfoundland accent when I read him! Hello, winter break! Hello, leisure reading!

Haven't started this book yet but it looks promising.. #backyard #sizzlinsummerbooks I don't have a backyard bc I live on a college campus but there is a lot of grass.. it's 95 outside right now though so I'm not going out there for a pic. #tbr
