As a college teacher myself, I rather enjoy the Peter Shandy mysteries--even if I teach in an art college rather than an agricultural college and don't get to live in quaint faculty housing in Massachusetts in the same way as the protagonist. This novel actually has two mysteries, but revealing the nature of the mysteries would give away too much of the plot.

This novel has a twist I wasn't expecting. The twist involved the first mystery, but not the second. This was no unfair parlor mystery wher
These books seem to get better as I read more of them. Since the series starts out well, that is saying something. I miss some of the references but enjoy the many I do understand. Catriona MacBogle is back in this one and I like her much better here. There are numerous likeable characters back, President Svenson, one of my favorites, Iduna and Dan Stott, Jim Feldster, who gets a leading role in this book, Fred Ottermole, Cronkite Swope - just to name a few. By this time Balaclava College is rea ...more
Usual excellent writing and an interesting back story on one of the recurrent back ground characters. However only one clue I could see as the who the killer was and not really any as to his accomplice. I'm sorry this is the last of the peter shandy series.
I can’t express how much I enjoy Charlotte MacLeod’s stories. She creates characters that invite you into their quiet life while they hunt for who did it. Her style makes me think of Georgette Heyer’s mysteries and Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple mysteries.
the conversation is a little stilted at times, but somehow enjoying the mindless trucking along of a cute little british mystery. my kryptonite, these things. i could read them like some people eat bonbons.
Always sad to come to the end of a series but my goodness, this book dragged! Way too much in the way of conversations not having anything to do with the plot.

While the characters were believable, the plotline just seemed to plod along. I felt it took too long to get to the heart of the story.

Mostly, classic Peter Shandy. The ending....a bit bizarre. Two and a half stars.
Chi Dubinski
A favorite series. I've re-read them many times.
Shandy & McBogle save the day
