This is a GoodReads First Reads Giveaways review.
This is a very cozy and predictable mystery novel. Not one I'd choose if I were looking for something complex with plenty of twists and turns. At times I felt the book veered off on tangents that drug on a little too long (descriptions of the family dog, a coworker giving birth, etc). Overall the author is no master of suspense, but has crafted an enjoyable story.

I received this book from a goodreads contest. It was a good cozy mystery it even had two recipes at the end. It focused on several professors at a college with one of them an amateur detective. It was a easy read which is what you look for in a cozy mystery. I thought I had it figured out but the author had a slight twist which I did not see coming. A perfect book for a lazy Sunday afternoon of reading. I will be reading more of this authors works.
