I like Alex Delaware mysteries. They are smartly written and fun to read. The repartee between the two main characters, Dr. Alex Delaware and homicide detective Milo Sturgis is fun. And then there is all of the food they consume. What’s not to like with that.

Two more reasons I like this series is you don’t have to read it as a series and you can read the book at night and forget your page and still pick it up and go on the next night. Deception, the most current mystery revolves around an exclusive private school, Windsor Prep Academy. A teacher is murdered and the hunt is on to find out the killer. What is her co-workers, her lover, the students she tutored? Another twist and a reason for special sensitivity on this investigation is that one of the students currently enrolled at Windsor is the son of the chief of police. The reputation of Windsor needs to be protected.

If you have never read an Alex Delaware, try it, you’ll like it. And if you have, read this one, you will surely like it. --Maeve
