This is the first entry in a proposed series featuring Rosemary Stubbs who gave up a lucrative job as a CFO to attend Yale Divinity School and then take a job at a small liberal arts college in Vermont.
In this outing, Stubbs no sooner arrives on campus than dead bodies start appearing. Stubbs finds the woman who recruited her dead in the new gym's swimming pool. She sets out - kind of - to find out who killed the woman while trying to settle into her new job.
It is obvious that this book was written by two authors (Jill Ker Conway and Elizabeth Kennan writing as Clare Munnings) because one author uses polysllabic words where a one syllable word would suffice - I found it jarring and disruptive. I'm not opposed to polysllabic words, I just don't like seeing them used for the sake of using them - it's as if the author wanted us to know that she could use the words. It is this same author who could have used a strong editor because some of her sentences were very hard to understand in the context of the paragraph and the events occurring in the book. Also there isn't a smooth flow of time in the book. One minute Stubbs in on the streets of New York and the next she's driving up I-91 in Vermont.
I'll read the second book in this series, but I won't read beyond that if the problems mentioned above continue.
