Third Book Review in the Mystery Thriller Week

The Semester of Discontent


Cynthia Kuhn


English professor Lila Maclean is so excited to be working  Stonedale University, that is until she finds one of her colleagues dead.   Lila—or someone she is protecting— is considered a person of interest.  So much so that anyone connected to her is a suspect.  As a result she decides that she find out identity of the killer. 

Unfortunately, there is more than one attack and more professors die and the only connection is a symbol at each of the crime scenes. A symbol that no will explain to Lila, so as she gathers  evidence,  an unexpected enemy, a suspicious investigator, and a secret society. impede her investigation.  It would have helped if people would just answer her questions.   

My opinion and rating 4.8

I really like this story!  The reason I liked the story is two-fold, the author Cynthia Kuhn has (almost) the career that I would like.  She is a writer and university professor, I would like to be a full-time writer and remote university professor.  The other reason is the main character, Lila Maclean, is so well written. I mean everything that the main character says and does is very realistic.  I can see it happening as it unfolds.  Consequently, I read the book almost straight through.  I just love it when I find a new writer to follow! 

This book is highly recommended by me and I hope a lot of people enjoy Lila Maclean as much as I did.

The fourth review is coming soon!  Also, during the Mystery Thriller Week I will be posting interviews from most of the authors’ in the book review series. logo1
