The realistic depiction of academic life is a reminder that publish or perish is more than an idiom. Also, it is true that many still underrate or deny the literary contributions of female and minority authors. Lila is a new adjunct in American Literature at Stonedale University. As a new professor, her position is tenuous, but she isn't a shrinking violet. She stands up for what she believes in despite it leading to her being considered a suspect. I was fascinated by the idea that her area of concentration is a little known author of mysteries. When the police concentrate on her cousin, Lila starts her own investigation.
Lila is an engaging heroine who is smart, but willing to admit when she needs help. Unlike some of the other professors, she does not have an agenda other than finding the truth. Like many universities, Cynthia Kuhn's Stonedale is filled with a variety of personalities, some kind and caring, others derisive and irascible. Reading The Semester of our Discontent brought back many memories from my own days at university.
The Semester of Our Discontent is an enthralling cozy featuring a delightful and intelligent heroine. If you enjoy cozy mysteries and have a desire to walk the old school grounds, The Semester of Our Discontent is a wonderful choice. I can't wait to see what Cynthia Kuhn has in store for Lila next.
I received a copy of The Semester of Our Discontent from the publisher and Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
An enjoyable read.
