This series gets my award for the best series you didn’t know existed. Don’t let Professor Emmeline Prather and her adventures fly under your radar. It is a fun series that is well written and full of enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end. The author does a great job of incorporating a quaint and enjoyable setting into the book that really is a character unto itself. This series is becoming more of a favorite with each book I read.

Thanks so much for reviewing, Marie! I appreciate your kind words.
I’ve never been a reader of mystery novels. However, after reading the first book in this series, I could not wait for the second book to come out. Once it arrived, I read it in 2 days and now I’ve waiting excitedly for another year for book #3. I love Christmas time so am especially thrilled to get my hands on A Very Merry Murder today.
Sounds great! Can’t wait to read it!
