Throw in a little mystery along with the competition and the plot rises above the graduate student's plight of finding the next job or the next boyfriend. Obviously written by someone who has been through the dissertation and research process, this book truly gives an insight into the life of an academic--including the politics, the fight for confidence in one's work, and the emotional ups and downs in the competitive environment. However, its attention to that detail may also be its weakness.
Few people have gone through the PhD process or know the politics of academia. Having survived my own doctoral pursuit and roles in academia, I personally loved that part of the novel. But, I can see how others would find it droll or perhaps unbelievable. Fortunately, the mystery takes it above the usual graduate student treatise.
I think this author has a nice voice and a good story sense. I'd love to see her write another novel that goes beyond the academic experience. I think she's set this up to be a series and at the end we know that Rose Brashear is moving forward. I would definitely pick up the next book to see what happens.
The plot was interesting and believable. However the ending seemed rushed. I suppose the purpose was to lead into a series, but I was hoping for the storyline to develop some more.
