Before she started hosting dinners for Indiana University's Sociology Department at Pans 'N' Pancakes, Robbie never imagined scholarly meetings could be so hostile. It's all due to Professor Charles Stilton, who seems to thrive on heated exchanges with his peers and underlings, and tensions flare one night after he disrespects Robbie's friend, graduate student Lou.
So when Robbie and Lou go snowshoeing the next morning and find the contentious academic frozen under ice, police suspect that Lou might have killed him after their public tiff. To prove her friend's innocence, Robbie is absorbing local gossip about Professor Stilton's past and developing her own thesis on the homicide - even if that means stirring up terrible danger for herself along the way.

This is a typical mystery that follows the cozy mystery formula. The narrator didn't help. She makes the lead character sound like she's 57 instead of 27. It's not bad, it's just mediocre.
This series just keeps getting better. Can't wait for the next entry. Great book made even better by a superb narrator, one of the best I've ever listened to. Hope they keep her through all the upcoming books.
