** The episode Town Father does say that there are a lot of people who have summer houses button't spend enough time the town to be counted as residents.


** In support of this, and there being some kind of TimeSkip in the pilot they never mentioned, [[Recap/MurderSheWroteS1E7WereOffToKillTheWizard episode 7 of season ''one'']] has the VictimOfTheWeek wanting to make a theme park based on Jessica's novels - note the plural - and Jessica is on a publicity tour for a new book in [[Recap/MurderSheWroteS1E12MurderToAJazzBeat episode 12 season one]]. If you go by the rule of thumb that one season takes place roughly over one year-14 months [[note]]In season 5 episode 3, Mort Metzger has just become Cabot Cove's sheriff, in the season finale he states he's been sheriff for a year[[/note]] it would mean that Jessica has had at least three novels published in six months. Which is technically possible, but only if she had two or more manuscripts mostly ready to go by the time ''The Corpse danced at midnight'' was published.

** It's unusual, but not impossible. 43 divided by 12 is 3.58, meaning Jessica put out 3 or 4 novels per year. For about a decade, Nora Roberts put out a stand-alone romantic suspense novel, a trilogy of romances, and two Literature/EveDallas novels ''every year''. Also, Jessica wrote her first novel to get through her grief, and it's being published in the opening episode - but it usually takes about a year for a book to get from acceptance to release, nor do we know just how long after she finished that novel it was accepted. If Jessica had retired right after Frank died, she could have written three or four manuscripts by the time of the opening episode. Nor do we know if it was her first attempt at writing a novel; nearly every writer completes more than one novel before getting published traditionally. Jessica could have had several manuscripts she didn't deem fit to show anyone in her attic which she dusted off and re-worked later.

** Pretty much jossed, in the tie-in novels at least. She's shown working on her books, and it's mentioned that she wrote her first murder mystery as a way to help her get through her grief after her husband died.



While she had a long and happy marriage with Frank, they never had children, nor does she seem to reciprocate many of her male friends' affections. Considering in the 80's/90's understanding of human sexuality was basically still in its dark ages, it's possible she wouldn't have known why she wasn't interested, hence why it didn't come up.
