Review: Smart, But Dead by: Nancy G. West

Title: Smart, But Dead
Author: Nancy G. West
Publisher: Henery Press
Series: Aggie Mundeen Mystery #3
Pages: 246
Format: e-book ARC
Source: NetGalley & Great Escapes Book Tours

Description:

Skirting forty and appalled by the prospect of descending into middle-age decrepitude, Aggie Mundeen blasts off to the local university to study the genetics of aging. In addition to providing youthful hints for readers of her column, “Stay Young with Aggie,” Aggie is doggedly determined to stay young.
Despite conflicts with her professor, she learns about the Human Genome Project and DNA. When she discovers a dead body, Detective Sam reminds her not to “help” with the investigation. But dangerously curious and programmed to prod, she races to solve the crime, winds up the prime suspect and is on target to become next campus corpse.

Related subjects include: cozy mysteries, women sleuths, murder mystery series, whodunit mysteries (whodunnit), amateur sleuth books, book club recommendations, Southern humor, Southern living, and humorous murder mysteries.

My Thoughts:

Aggie has decided she is going to stay young and writes a column on tips on aging.  Aggie decides to go to the university and study about aging.  When the professor dies in the classroom Aggie is determined to prove the professor was murdered.  This book was full of mystery and fast paced and her curiosity at times lands her sticky situations.  This book would be great for anyone who loves mystery and adventure.  I can't wait to see what comes up next with Ms. West such a great adventure she takes you on trying to find out who killed the professor!
