Unlike other books in a typical series, I don’t believe you must read the first book in the series, Deadmistress, prior to reading this one to appreciate the plot and main characters. Sufficient background is given to fully understand the various characters and enjoy the ride. Think of this book as pure brain candy.
Barbara Benjamin-Creel ‘s narration was great. She maintained consistent voices from the first book, differentiating the various characters. She also exhibited the right amount of “spunk” and cheekiness needed in a cozy mystery. I’d listen to another one of her narrations any time.
A group of supporters of Abby's start causing trouble on the campus. And when a suspicious fire sends one of the committee members to the hospital and then another is found dead in Abby's office, Susan must try to find out who is behind all this. Could it be the group of supporters?
Susan begins to dig deeper into everything to try to sort things out. Can she do so without becoming the next victim?
I really enjoy this series. Susan is such a fun character. The college campus setting is so entertaining. It's a great cozy and you'll devour it in no time! I highly recommend this book.
