Book number three in the Hester Thursby Mystery series follows Hester Thursby and Detective Angela as they work with others to solve the mysteries surrounding Prescott University. Missing students, a dead child, an affair and power struggles are just some of the drama swirling on the pages. It is said that this can be read as a stand alone, but having never read the other books in the series, I had a bit of difficulty following along with the many characters introduced during the first part of the book. On top of what I felt were too many character introductions, the story also lacked the needed intrigue to fully pull me in. While it did have all of the things mentioned above, there was a lack of intensity in portraying the drama. However, towards the end of the book, the story picked up its pace and kept most of my attention. Overall, it was an ok read.
