My second foray into the world of Molly Barda was as enjoyable as the first. I missed a development in her life, namely getting married to the successful, hunky and brilliant chef Donnie, which makes her now stepmom to the odious Davison, who is at least away at college. Not. He returns and makes life irritating just after she’s discovered a body, jumped to some conclusions, got herself into a technological mess with her grant-funded investigation into attitudes to bio-tech, and partied with som ...more

This mystery series is pure fun. It follows the trials and tribulations of Molly Barda, assistant professor at a (fictitious) failing state university in Hawaii, as she pursues tenure and tries to solve murders at the same time. Her two friends, Pat and Emma, and their conversations are a hilarious delight.

Okay, I have to admit that I selected this book because of the title. It's a hard one to pass up on! I wasn't disappointed.

Frankie Bow writes another great book with layers and layers.

She may be spending more time with Emma and Pat than she does her husband. Of course, having Davison home on break may account for some of that. He is as irritating as ever, with the addition of special dietary restrictions and his constant advice giving. If only he would find a woman his own age to

Like Molly Barda, Frankie Bow teaches at a public university. Unlike her protagonist, she is blessed with delightful students, sane colleagues, a loving family, and a perfectly nice office chair. She believes that if life isn’t fair, at least it can be entertaining. Her experience with academic publishing has taught her to take nothing personally.
