This was a good read while football games played in the background. It kept my interest and the pace was quick. Hopefully, Susan can mellow out a bit - and we get to see more of Aunt Jenny!
Overall though the book dragged in the middle with the addition of a visiting elderly aunt who frowns upon shacking up with a boyfriend before marriage and this sort of thing. An ex judge also added a fair bit of implausibility to the story. You also wondering the whole time why Susan who should be a woman who can handle things and show that women can achieve anything if that's what she is trying to instil on young girls, constantly needed her boyfriend to save her from situations and take care of her. Maybe another female lecturer would have made a better choice to assist her with solving the murder and staying out of jail than a big strong security guard type male.
I highly recommend "The Perfect Coed" by Judy Alter.
