More About the Author
In her spare time, J.T. Toman joins the rest of Colorado hiking, biking and skiing. However, much like her cats, she finds food more inspiring than scenery. J.T. particularly loves home- grown tomatoes, udon noodles and tall glasses of chocolate milk, but not at the same time.
Picking Lemons is her first novel.

It would probably be unethical to hope for a wide-scale outbreak of murder at Eaton University, but nonetheless, I'm really hoping that C.J. Whitmore gets a second outing.
Toman gives us a decent plot, but for me, her characters were the big draw in this first novel. I only wish my grad school days had been lightened with a CJ Whitmore. A true Texas Boudicca in pink cowboy boots, turquoise skirt and orange cowboy shirt -- perfection. I'm ready for the next installment.
The story is well written, fast paced, different setting and style than what I have been reading the past couple years, and C.J. is her own person in how she dresses, attitude and more. And the story contains no sex scenes or curse words. Kudos to the author. The action is fast paced, easy to follow and interesting beyond belief.
Professor Edmund DeBeyer is found dead in his office. He was strangled by his Ph. D. hood. The police have more than the needed amount of suspects for this murder. The professor was the most hated man in the department. C. J. Whitmore resolves to get to the bottom of the mystery using economic principles. then, not long after Edmund is killed there is yet another murder. C.J. plans on finding the murderer by figuring out which suspects are telling the truth and which are lying. Can she do it?
The characters are well written and you can relate to them easily. I know, as you read, you will pick a character ehre or there and say you know someone like that.
I recommend this book highly for 16 on up. Enjoy your read!
Great character development with enthusiastic interactions!
It is an entertaining read, so IF you are looking for the deeper meaning of life, this is not your book. If you just want to chill out and be entertained, this is a good choice. I thought the plot twists at the end were creative
There was some really clever writing on the micro level (great, funny lines here and there, entertaining insights into the world of academia) but on the macro level, there was no structure. I didn't feel like the sleuth was really doing anything active to solve the crime. I wasn't even sure who the sleuth was, except that the blurb told me it was C.J.
Never once was I in suspense.

The characters were interesting but it seemed a slow moving story. A who did it with a twist set in academia. I usually finish what I read unless it's just a terrible read. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Kit E. Gee
