Dollycas’s Thoughts

Dead Week – The last full week of classes before final exams, a period of substantial and predictable quiet study time for undergraduate students.

With Dead Week quickly approaching Student Affairs VP Cassandra Sato is juggling student issues, a deaf advocacy project, a new college President, and a Nebraska Winter. Her Diversity Council is barely underway when a student is injured. A student that had a mission of her own. When her injury gets national media attention her story

I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Happy Wednesday! I hope ya'll remember my review of Death by Dissertation, if not please check it out now. Today I've got the sequel, Dead Week. It's a different sort of cozy set in Nebraska as Cassandra moves from Hawaii to be an administrator at Morton College, where her BFF is a deaf interper.

Cassandra Sato is back, and so is chaos and disruption at little Morton College. Academia has a long memory, and Cassandra is caught in the middle when a student starts something too big for her to handle. The mystery that develops is partly about a long-ago student's death, and partly about who is so upset about it and why. Brakenhoff does a great job of creating a compelling mystery without much of a body-count, because she is really writing about humans and their motivations.

I enjoyed the

Kelly Brakenhoff has done it again, another brilliant book that keeps you guessing until the end!

Cassandra Sato has started to settle into her new job, although the weather leaves much to be desired! Changes are afoot however, her boss has retired and an interim president has been appointed, the problem is that Dr Winter seems bent on removing some of the diversity changes that have been set up, meaning that the ones that Cassandra and her friend Meg are hoping to introduce wont happen either.

This second book was just as enjoyable as the first. Cassandra is getting more comfortable, meeting her colleagues, and preparing for a Nebraska winter despite missing her Hawaiian home. The Morton College faculty, staff, and students are realistic with their unique quirks in this well-written mystery. I appreciated the advocacy for the deaf community woven within the dynamics of living in a small town and working at a college. I look forward to seeing what next semester brings for Cassandra.

Another awesome one!

Kelly has done it again. Like I said when I reviewed Death By Dissertation, I'm not a fan of fiction, but this book hits home for me as a Deaf person. I could actually relate to this book, Rachel's experiences, the small college experience, all of it. The story was just riveting. A must read. I look forward to Kelly's next book in this series.

I really liked this. I like to Kelly’s first book, but the plot in this one seems even more complex. Cassandra Sato is earnest and hardworking, but I especially appreciate her dry wit. I look forward to book 3 in the series.
