Editorial Reviews

Review

Agatha Award Winner, Best First Novel

"The best cozy debut I've read this year. An engaging heroine, a college setting that will have you aching to go back to school, and a puzzler of a mystery make this a must-read for cozy lovers." - Laura DiSilverio, National Bestselling Author of the Readaholics Book Club Mysteries

"The Semester of Our Discontent leads the reader on a journey worthy of any crime mystery and serves up an ending you are unlikely to see coming regardless of how long you have studied the mystery genre...It may take place in the world of certificates and tweed suits, but it is sharp." - Criminal Element

"A pitch-perfect portrayal of academic life with a beguiling cast of anxious newbies, tweedy old troublemakers and scholars as sharp as they're wise. Lila's Stonedale is a world I'm thrilled to have found. Roll on book two!" - Catriona McPherson, Multi-Award-Winning Author of the Dandy Gilver Series

"A very intricate, cool story featuring the depth of an institution where everyone is dying to climb the ladder of success." - Suspense Magazine

"College professor Lila Maclean gets an A+ for her detecting skills in this twisty mystery set at a Colorado university. With suspects and motives galore, solving the murder of department chair Roland Higgins won't be easy, but Lila's got brains and guts to spare. A great book!" - Maggie Barbieri, Author of the Murder 101 Series

"Cynthia Kuhn takes readers on a mind-boggling safari into the wilds of academia...Only an insider like Kuhn can reveal the savagery behind the mask of scholarship and collegiality with such acuity and grace." - Lev Raphael, Author of Assault With a Deadly Lie

"I have a real fondness for academic mysteries and this one is first rate." - For the Love of Books

"Takes the reader into higher education's secrets and shadows, where the real lesson is for the new professor--how to stay alive. If you're smart, you'll read this book." - Lori Rader-Day, Anthony Award-Winning Author of The Black Hour

"Binge reading this first novel in a new series will be almost impossible to resist. The wealth of suspects will keep readers cramming just a few more pages in before bedtime." - BOLO Books

"Cynthia Kuhn is phenomenal at conveying the tension-filled atmosphere that inundates higher institutions, where one's fate rests entirely on a few out-of-touch, pompous faculty members." - Kings River Life Magazine
