What's Your Favorite Mystery Show

Hi - Allie McMurphy here. I love a good mystery series. I'm a fudge maker and I live on Mackinac Island, Michigan. The McMurphy Hotel and Fudge Shop has been in my family for over one hundred years.

As a fudge maker, I have to get up very early to make the fudge before the tourist - we warmly call them fudgies- come onto the island for a day of turning back time.

You see there are no combustion engines allowed on Mackinac. So we go by horse, carriage, bicycle or what my mom called "Shank's mare." That means by foot.

Since I'm up early and run a hotel business, I don't have a lot of time to watch television. When I do get to watch, I'm streaming shows. Nothing I like to watch is ever on when I have a spare moment to watch.

So my bichonpoo puppy Mal, and my calico cat, Mella and I snuggle up on the couch and stream our favorite mystery series. I like "Father Brown." Mal prefers "Murder She Wrote" and Mella, well, Mella likes "Death in Paradise."

I happen to think Mackinac Island is Paradise, but I guess that's beside the point. My friend Jenn loves CSI, but I think it's because her boyfriend is a forensic scientist.

Our next book releases Sept 25, 2018. There's a murder mystery pilot being shot on the island.  Mal and Mella think it's great fun to get in front of the camera. I, on the other hand, would rather remain behind the fudge counter. Unfortunately that may not be the case this time.

What's your favorite murder mystery television show and who do you like to watch it with?

  27. I loved watching Perry Mason with my grandmother when I was really young. Then there were movies of Agatha Christie books and Ellery Queen. Then the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew. I dearly loved Murder, She Wrote and Matlock. I didn't really get into Columbo or other murder mystery shows during that time as I was more interested in reading!

  28. I see many that I enjoy in the comments already, so I'll pick something different. "Shetland", about the Shetland Islands in Northern Scotland, is a current favorite...but then anything that even hints at Scotland gets two thumbs up from me! ;)

  29. Columbo was a favorite. I used to like how Ellery Queen paused to ask if you knew the murderer. cheers (at) marjimmanor (dot) com-
