Description:

Another murder in small town Cold Creek has tensions rising. Clive Johnson, the groundskeeper at Cold Creek College, is a convenient scapegoat for a police chief who seeks an easy solution. Convinced Chief Pfeiffe has it all wrong, professor and psychologist Sheridan Hendley sets out to help prove Clive’s innocence. But not everyone is pleased by her enthusiastic search for the truth. Just as her life is looking up personally, it looks like she might be the next victim.

My Thoughts:

This is the second book in the Cold Creek series in this book a body is found dead and Sheridan is called over to help people who are suffering from shock and her boyfriend Brett is called in to investigate the crime.  It's not long before the reader finds out murder is going on at the college.  Who had the most to gain from this murder?  Will Sheridan and Brett figure it out before the murderer strikes again?

This is a great mystery that kept me guessing as to who the murderer was and I really enjoyed that.  I also enjoyed the aspect of Sheridan being a professor and psychologist which you don't see in many mystery books.

I also enjoyed the friendship between Sheridan and Kim.  Their friendship works well together.  As well as being friends and co-workers.  I think many cozy readers will love this series can't wait to see what Ms. Nardi comes up with next in the Cold Creek series!
