Murder Mezzo Forte Review

My Thoughts
Have you ever wanted to like a book, because you're so tired of reading in certain genres, that when a book for your favorite genre is offered you snatch it up. Only to be half-entertained? This is where I am. The story was an o.k. story, not great, not so bad it made me want to quit the book. Just o.k. Which is disappointing for an avid reader. I wanted thrilled, I wanted to keep guessing who dunnit. I wanted to like the characters. I just didn't relate to this story, the names were confusing, too many names too close to the same. So what was good about this book? The quirkiness was amusing, and entertaining. The setting was good. The writing is good. It just didn't come together for me. 3.5 stars from this reviewer.

About the book: 


Murder Mezzo Forte (Lamplighter Mysteries, June 2016)

He is a reclusive history professor with musical hallucinations. . . .

She a headstrong professor of religion, a converted Wiccan. Earlier, they solved a campus murder, but now police say they formed two-thirds of an illicit love triangle with a newly-murdered female colleague and they're probably guilty of her murder. A leak of the alleged scandal to the college administration threatens their jobs.

Their desperate attempt to prove themselves innocent of the triangle and the murder plunges them into a tangle of unsavory corporate relationships among college trustees. And it puts their lives in danger from a mysterious criminal organization that seems to have tentacles everywhere.

Can this ill-matched pair's stumbling efforts succeed against the entrenched forces of the police, the college's incompetent administration, and that powerful but unseen criminal organization? If not, they may end up unemployed, in prison, or suffering a fate much worse.
