    This was a decent first novel I must admit, however, that I m not a fan of pregnant women as a plot device and even less fond of childbirth as an event in this type of book Save it for the touchy feelies and just let the cozies be cozies.

    Being an academic mystery fan I can t resist snatching them off the library shelves when I see them I should have left this one on the shelf The writing is not crisp and the story just did not hold my interest I did finish itjust.

    Murder mystery not a police procedural based around multiple deaths in and around a Cambridge College The plot is very convoluted and the role of the principal a divorced lecturer battling for her job, carrying a baby, and in a complex romantic relationship rather implausible Very slow in the middle and involving the introduction of bizarre story lines including seances and the occult I struggled through it, but the poor writing, lack of character development, and weirdly the clunky forma Murder mystery not a police procedural based around multiple deaths in and around a Cambridge College The plot is very convoluted and the role of the principal a divorced lecturer battling for her job, carrying a baby, and in a complex romantic relationship rather implausible Very slow in the middle and involving the introduction of bizarre story lines including seances and the occult I struggled through it, but the poor writing, lack of character development, and weirdly the clunky formatting on my Kindle nearly made me give up

    To be honest, this book was a chore to get through The writing was clunky, the characters with the minimal exclusion of the lead weren t really developed, and the ending was a hot, rushed mess If you want to challenge yourself by trying to get through a dull book, be my guest Otherwise, it d be best to stay away from this particular novel.


  7. Susan Susan says:

    Set in the English department of one of the Cambridge University colleges, the detective, Cassandra James, is a professor who specializes in Victorian authors All it takes is a slight exaggeration of the normal wrangling within the typical college or university to imagine a motive for murder An entertaining read but probablyinteresting to readers tuned into academic settings.
