Murder Mezzo Forte(Lamplighter Mysteries, June 2016)
He is a reclusive history professor with musical hallucinations. . . .
She a headstrong professor of religion, a converted Wiccan. Earlier, they solved a campus murder, but now police say they formed two-thirds of an illicit love triangle with a newly-murdered female colleague and they’re probably guilty of her murder. A leak of the alleged scandal to the college administration threatens their jobs.
Their desperate attempt to prove themselves innocent of the triangle and the murder plunges them into a tangle of unsavory corporate relationships among college trustees. And it puts their lives in danger from a mysterious criminal organization that seems to have tentacles everywhere.
Can this ill-matched pair’s stumbling efforts succeed against the entrenched forces of the police, the college’s incompetent administration, and that powerful but unseen criminal organization? If not, they may end up unemployed, in prison, or suffering a fate much worse.
My opinion: This book was a delicious mixture of mystery, intrigue and romance. This book is written in an engaging, well paced manner that makes it a real page turner and keeps one guessing until the very end. i love how the author was able to keep one guessing until the very end, it certain kept me on my toes. The characters are fascinating and solid, very enjoyable to read their witty dialogue. Having read the previous book in the series I was very eager to read this one!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
