  • COMING UP MURDER by Mary Angela

    COMING UP MURDER by Mary Angela is the fourth book in the A Professor Prather Mystery series. It’s the wonderfully crafted story of Professor Emmeline Prather and the Shakespeare Festival to be held at the university where she works in Cooper Bluff, South Dakota. It’s a time of joyful celebration, a book publication on the horizon, romance in the air and a murderer lurks in the shadows. Emmeline is definitely in her element at the festival wanting to attend as many events as possible, many accompanied by fellow professor and romantic interest Lenny, and somewhat nervous about her own presentation. The first hint of trouble came in the form of an unsigned sonnet that was submitted into the contest with hints to foreboding events. Then feathers got ruffled early in the events when grad student/actor Tanner Sparks announces during a presentation that he could prove that Shakespeare was not the actual author of the First Folio presently on display at the university. Shortly thereafter, Reed and Emmeline find Tanner in the Shakespeare’s Garden dead. Not only dead, but staged to look like a scene out of Hamlet. Ruffled feathers or not, was it enough to cause someone to murder this young man? Emmeline is ecstatic when a publisher contacts her wanting to publish her book she had submitted. However, the publishing process if far from a smooth one. She wonders whether the book will show up on the market before she herself will be up on charges of murder for killing her publisher’s editor. During all the events of the festival – good and bad, now she has to contend with seeing justice done to her book. She’s also wondering if the feeling she has for Lenny are reciprocate. Then events begin to happen to where Emmeline wonders if she is the real target that the evil predator is really after and if so why was Tanner killed? Will she be next? Can Emmeline find the answers to her questions and enough clues to help authorities find the murderer before they strike again? Does she have more to worry about than an editor taking an ax to creative work? Will the big “L” word finally come up in her relationship with Lenny? COMING UP MURDER is definitely a page turner that will keep you guessing as danger lurks and suspects add up. Love the way Mary Angela pulls emotions from you having you loving some characters while holding others at arm’s length. I for one am pulling for an eventual lifetime happily ever after for Emmeline and Lenny. Although part of a series, COMING UP MURDER can definitely be read as a standalone book. This was the first book in the series for me and I had no trouble with characters or events at all. I do know that after reading this book, I will be searching out other books in this series as well as looking forward to book number five. I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a great cozy mystery, a book that will entertains while working your brain trying to figure out whodunit or just wants an amazing book to read. I give it FIVE STARS!

    Thanks for your feedback!
