A found a new series and a new narrator!

I enjoy mystery books that have great suspense, good writing, and are light and funny with a hint of darkness. I have exhausted Molly Harper books, Diana Rowland books and Jesse Petesen books. Those books all have a supernatural twist (although Harper's Rythm and Bluegrass series is normal). This series is very comparable to those minus the supernatural. The author is witty and the plot is fun. It is well-written with great suspense and a satisfying ending. The character are well-developed and likable. The narrator is excellent and a perfect match for the main character. She performs each of the other characters with aplomb.

The strength of this book is the original plot idea and the situational comedy. Having an adult go undercover to a university and live in the dorms provides for hilarious situations. It is made believable by the fact that a large donor requests that Josie be assigned to the case and that she is a licensed, if inexperienced private detective. The way colleges cover up crimes (rape, theft, corruption) is well-known, so this is very believable.

The main character is a lovable but grouchy character--the kind of role usually reserved for men like Al Bundy, Jay Pritchett (same guy, updated character), Archie Bunker, Frazier and Walter Mattau. She is like Sue Slyvester in Glee but nicer. Her old friends and the new friends that she forms into a "Scobbie" sort of gang are delightful. One of the funniest scenes is when she realizes that her college crew isn't familiar with the "Scobbie Doo" show and one of the kids refers to Shaggy as a hipster. He doesn't know the difference between a hipster and a real hippy. Later in the conversation, it is revealed that they are confusing "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" with "Twilight." Josie responds by requiring that they all come over to a mandatory "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" binge watching session at the conclusion of the case because she is worried about their lack of cultural knowledge. This is a great book.

I received this book for free from the author, narrator, or pubisher in exchange for an honest review.

A fun college cozy

This was a cute cozy mystery on a college campus. So the main character Josie is an adult but is voluntold to help figure out a stalker mystery of a professor on campus. The professor is kind of a cocky jerk with some unethical habits. As she is trying to masquerade as a student, live in the dorms, and eat the atrocious cafeteria food provided she stumbles into another seemingly unrelated mystery. With her band of scoobies they try and figure out what is going on. This was a light fun cozy. The narrator did a great job with all of the characters. Having never listened to the series before, I realized there must have been another book before this that could possibly better explain the character's past, but as a stand alone it was good. I look forward to finding the others in the series. I received a free review copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
