An Act of Murder
by Mary Angela

Series: Professor Prather Mystery (Book 1)
Setting – South Dakota
Paperback: 236 pages
Publisher: Camel Press (October 15, 2016)
ISBN-13: 978-1603813754


In the sleepy college town of Copper Bluff, South Dakota, English professor Emmeline Prather is enjoying the start of a new semester. But when one of her students dies working on the fall musical, it disrupts life on the small, quiet campus. Although the police rule the death accidental, Prof. Prather has good reason to suspect foul play.
Unmasking the murderer proves much more challenging than finding dangling participles, so Em recruits fellow English professor Lenny Jenkins for assistance. Together, they comb the campus and vicinity for clues, risking their reputations and possibly their jobs. After an intruder breaks into Em’s house, Lenny advises caution–and perhaps a change of address. Em, on the other hand, is all the more determined to forge ahead, convinced they’re on the brink of an important breakthrough.

My Review

Great debut for this new series and for this author, her style is very brilliant  and flowing.
Emmeline teaches English in a college and really loves her job. But one day the peace is shattered by a murder. She can not help but investigate.
The characters are believable and engaging. Emmeline is a smart woman, determined and stubborn, she continues the investigation nonetheless everyone is opposed.  I really loved the setting of the story, this friendly college town of South Dakota.
The story is well written, full of twists and very addictive that really seems to be along with Emmeline to solve the mystery. This was a great read that left me turning the pages, eager to know what was going to happen next.
If you love mystery setting in college this book is to be read
