Marriage Is Murder book. No mystery to most of the book. Somewhat unbelievable tale of Jenny Cain, who gets wrapped up in cop boyfriend's cases. Shades of "Murder She Wrote". Aug 15, 2011 Danielle rated it liked it. Now that I know this is book in a series, I need to backtrack to read the others. Quick, intriguing mysteries. I pictured Kyra Sedgwick as Jenny Cain as I read this book.

Nancy Pickard Nancy Pickard. Jenny Cain would never forget the hot Massachusetts summer day fate knocked at her door.

Jenny Cain and police detective Geof Bushfield already had pre-nuptial jitters. Then a sudden wave of domestic violence rocked placid Port Frederick - in just two weeks, the husbands of three battered wives were shot dead. Homicide was all too familiar to Geof, but this was enough to make him want to quit the force. As she tracks down public mysteries, Cain unearths painful personal issues; an attempt on her life, construed as an effort at suicide, forces her to deal with the legacy of her mother's madness.

When Jenny Cain's future husband, policeman Geof Bushfield becomes disillusioned by all the domestic violence occuring in Port Frederick between husbands and wives, it is up to Jenny to help Geof find the answer
  • The story woos the reader until suspicion creeps in and opens a door to questions regarding too many coincidences.

    Unfortunately the book has so many editorial spelling errors that it becomes a challenge to interpret the text. For that reason and not for the story content the book should be given a two star rating.

    Shame on all of you for allowing this to ruin an interesting book.

  • After reading rave reviews, I certainly expected more. As far as I could tell, there was no mystery, no plot, no real story.

  • First time I sort of identify myself with the main protagonist of a detective story

  • Ms. Pickard is a good writer, with the wit to make domestic abuse/murder issues as funny/ironic as they can tastefully be. Reasonably funny, actually, but she does display the multifaceted tragedy of those situations as she goes.

    The biggest problem is that this book's characters and plot are developed as though it were a 1950s domestic comedy--her tone and character depth are like Diane Mott Davidson's [an author I like, whose characters somehow end up more winning and less stereotypic, via the extra hundred plus pages per novel she takes to develop things.] Both central and peripheral characters are too simple and unreflective. Pickard does considerably better in her more recent, and longer, The Whole Truth.

  • In this fourth of the Jenny Cain series Jenny prepares to marry her long-time boyfriend, police dective Geof Bushfield. Before that happens she gets involved with seemingly abused wives who appear to be murdering their husbands. The book delves into the the dynamics of abuse relationships and what happens to the women involved in them. Jenny also questions her forth- coming marriage to Geof while he is questioning if he wants to stay with the force. Although the book was written in 1987 it is still revalent to situations that are happening today. Perhaps the ending is a little too neatly tied up but still an enjoyable read as we get to know Jenny & Geof better.

  • Funny yet carries a great story line.
