Fans of the hit TV show “Murder, She Wrote,” will love this commemorative photo-booklet of 30 color and black and white photos from filming in Mendocino during the ‘80s and ‘90s. Mendocino was chosen for its resemblance to a New England town and was given the name Cabot Cove on the show, which starred  Angela Lansbury as the plucky sleuth Jessica Fletcher.  This booklet was compiled by the owner of the Hill House Inn, which was featured repeatedly in the show, and still welcomes visitors with a sign out front reading “Hill House of Cabot Cove.” Many of the cast and crew stayed here during filming.
