Review: The Semester of our Discontent by Cynthia Kuhn

Lila is teaching at a private school in Colorado and working on her tenure track.  The misogynistic department head is murdered and her cousin is jailed for the crime.  She knows she didn't do it but what are the secrets she is hiding?

The first victim, Roland was a horrible person and suspects are a dime a dozen.  His brother Eldon is equally unlikable.  Their determination to not allow female authors or genre fiction in the department is an ongoing battle in schools that is (hopefully) slowly changing.  So much of what we learn is dependent upon what we are exposed to.  

This book was rich in setting and a delightful time in ugly academic politics and secret societies.  A very fun read!

Spirits United! I apologize for last month’s blog. I was so down in the dumps, I just couldn’t bear to be funny. Losing a best friend...
