Murder on Campus, by Hazel Holt

A small university in Pennsylvania has engaged Mrs. Sheila Malory to teach a course on Nineteenth-Century Women writers, and so, with some reluctance, the widow leaves her home in the charming seaside village of Taviscombe to experience academic life in America. The semester will prove even more challenging than she thought, for no sooner does she arrive than a colleague is found with a bullet in his head. The victim is particularly nasty, a man many would like to see dead. Lieutenant Landis, the lead investigator, just happens to be divorced, available, and eager to discuss Shakespeare. When he asks Mrs. Malory for help, he puts her in a difficult position. Should she assist him in his investigation, even if her efforts encourage his romantic interest? Sheila, who can’t resist a good murder mystery, forges ahead. What she discovers will make her regret that she ever left Taviscombe.

Murder on Campus is Book 5 in the Mrs. Malory Mystery series.

“The charming and intuitive Sheila, whose British sensibilities
color her view of America, will charm readers of cozies.” – Publishers Weekly

“Interesting … enjoyable … If you haven’t discovered Mrs.
Malory, I highly recommend reading the rest of the series.” – Mystery News
