Rate this:
An unseemly lesson in murder. The year is 1896, and college professor Concordia Wells has her hands full: teaching classes, acting as live-in chaperone to a cottage of lively female students, and directing the student play, Macbeth. But mystery and murder are not confined to the stage, especially when the death of Concordia's sister, Mary, appears to be foul play. To make matters worse, the women's college is plagued by malicious pranks, arson, money troubles, and the apparent suicide of a college official. With her beloved school facing certain ruin, Concordia knows that she must act. As she struggles to seek justice for her sister and discover who is behind the college incidents, there are some closest to Concordia who do not appreciate the unseemly inquiries and bold actions of the young lady professor. Can she discover who is responsible before she becomes the next target? Absorbing in its memorable characters, non-stop plot twists, and depiction of life in a late-nineteenth century women's college.

This first book in the Concordia Wells series gets the series off to a good start. We are introduced to life in a small women's college in the late 1800s. The author has done her research well, and the characters and their attitudes toward the events in the story are realistically portrayed as are the background daily life of food, clothes, medical treatment, and transportation. Concordia is an intelligent and likeable young woman, so I am happy that this series has six books so far. I will be reading through them. This book is in the cozy mystery genre, and it is definitely not boring.
