Book Review: Murder 101



Murder 101 by Maggie Barbieri

I devoured this book in an afternoon spent lazing in the sunshine on my back porch - the perfect book for that type of afternoon.

Alison is a professor at a small Catholic college when her world is turned upside down...a student is found in the trunk of her stolen Volvo. What follows is the investigation of the murder, the way Alison deals with having her world turned upside down, and the budding romance between her and lead investigator Crawford.

I actually found myself wanting to read more about the romance and less about the mystery based on the lovely "zinger" conversations between them, and the tentative steps both take at love. The ending left the door open for future mysteries - I can't wait!

A fun romance-y mystery! I give it a good grade! ;-)
