"Spoilers ahead" I generally like the "antique print" series and really enjoy the info about antique prints, but this time the author had Maggie do REALLY STUPID thongs to move the story along. She really thought it was okay to not turn the briefcase over to the police immediately? Come on. That is just stupid behavior. Also the way she wanted to keep the child even when she found out about the grandmothers presence was creepy. Still, I do like the series overall. This one was not the best though. Please don't make Maggie a moron.
Maggie's story continues on the campus of Somerset County College where she is asked to be a faculty adviser to young students at the Somerset Whitcomb House established for single parent students. Maggie gets embroiled in the lives of the students, when one is poisoned. Suspects abound and Maggie gets exposed to single parenthood, something she is considering. The reader gets introduced to college politics, wealth funding and the strings attached. Another student is poisoned and killed as the story moves along into a web of deceit, secrets, blackmail and lies. As always a tight plot well executed. Good read!
An exceptionally well written mystery. Setting is a small community college in New Jersey. Maggie Summer is a professor here during the week and is often off to her art shows on weekends for her Shadows business. There is a house set up across the campus for single parent students - 5 females and 1 male. During a cocktail party at one of the college mucky-mucky's one of the girl students passes out and goes into a coma. Maggie is the faculty advisor for this house of students. The police get involved and there is alot of behind the scenes happenings occuring. A Very Good Read.
A nice cozy mystery and apparently the author, Lea Wait, has a lot of fans, but I tried reading two of this series without success. The beginning was interesting but I soon found myself skimming through the book and reading the final two chapters just to see how Wait resolved the mystery.
