Start your investigation of the mysteries to come by reading the excerpt below from Jessica Fletcher’s journal which comes from the first case in the game.
Today is the Summer Garden Festival’s garden competition and tour, an event I look forward to all year. My tour group arrived at Matthew O’Neill’s house at approximately 12:45 p.m., only to discover Matthew lying dead in his garden.
What a shock!
He held a peach-colored rose in his hand, and his broken watch had stopped at 11:30. Mort arrived, and together we surveyed the area. Matthew was wearing loafers, but I observed a muddy footprint that appeared to have been made by a work boot. (Whose?) There were cat toys scattered about the garden, along with the pieces of a torn-up bill from “Jack of All Trades” landscaping.
I also took note of a second place garden competition ribbon, a bottle of pesticide, a coffee mug, and a pair of garden shears with the initials “E.W.” etched in the handle. I have a hunch that the shears belong to Matthew’s next-door neighbor, Emily Wiseborough. Perhaps she saw or heard something?
