    1. When a good friend and head of her department dies, Cassandra James takes over It s hard time for her because while some think her friend committed suicide, Cassandra thinks it s murder A lot of the story deals with the pressures of working in a university, getting people to publish or perish In the end, that s the heart of the whole story.I found the book very slow, repetitive,and too predictable I did finish it, but I found myself skimming because I got bored It was okay, but it could ve been [...]

    2. 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.

    3. A nice debut mystery novel I very much liked the setting and the professor sleuth, Dr Cassandra James The book drags a tiny bit in the middle but builds to a nice climax in which the killer was not at all who I was suspecting I hope there are books in the series.

    4. 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.

    5. It seems to ge a summer of escapist reading A murder in Cambridge Conclusion not as satisfying as it could have been, but great atmosphere Definitely intend to read the sequel next.

    6. This one is better than Murder is Academic The story held my interest was a good thing I read this one first.

    7. Eh Not bad, but don t bother It was just so so and there are so many books out there to be read.
