"SMART. Aggie Mundeen is smart.
BUT she’s also a little clumsy, irrepressible, and irresistible.
DEAD. She might well end up dead if she continues nosing around the university where her questions are not wanted. Smart, But Dead is the perfect combination of brains and heart. A tight mystery, an irrepressible heroine, and superb writing.” – James W. Ziskin, author of the Ellie Stone mysteries and Anthony Award-Finalist of No Stone Unturned(less)

"Good book

I highly recommend this book. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. The characters are good and the storyline is excellent."
Smart, But Dead by Nancy G. West
"This book unfortunately took way too long for me to get into and seemed far too wordy in some places where it needn't have been. I found the main character annoying so unfortunately this was a DNF for me."
Smart, But Dead by Nancy G. West
"Enjoyed this book and will be going back to read previous books in this series. Loved that the author made the main character with flaws. This is a great cozy mystery and one I'm sure you will enjoy.

George R.R. Martin
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

Gilda Radner
“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.
Delicious Ambiguity.”
Gilda Radner

William Faulkner
“Writing is a solitary job--that is, no one can help you with it, bu there's nothing lonely about it. I have always been too busy, too immersed in what I was doing, either mad at it or laughing at it to have time to wonder whether I was lonely or not lonely. It's simply solitary. I think there is a difference between loneliness and solitude.”
William Faulkner at the University of Virginia
