An unseemly lesson…in murder.
The year is 1896, and college professor Concordia Wells has her hands full: teaching classes, acting as live-in chaperone to a cottage of lively female students, and directing the student play, Macbeth. But mystery and murder are not confined to the stage, especially when the death of Concordia's sister, Mary, appears to be foul play. To make matters worse, the women's college is plagued by malicious pranks, arson, money troubles, and the apparent suicide of a college official.
With her beloved school facing certain ruin, Concordia knows that she must act. As she struggles to seek justice for her sister and discover who is behind the college incidents, there are some closest to Concordia who do not appreciate the unseemly inquiries and bold actions of the young lady professor. Can she discover who is responsible…before she becomes the next target?

There is never a dull moment in this book. It starts off in a very dramatic way and keeps this momentum going for the duration of the story. Concordia gets embroiled in dangerous situations one after the other which makes for suspenseful listening. There is also a little bit of romance which topped off the story nicely.
I love historical mysteries and was delighted with this book. Concordia makes a realistic amateur sleuth and the puzzle she had to solve was complex and well written.
I really enjoyed the mystery surrounding the death of Concordia's sister. It was less convoluted than the mystery at the school where there were a lot of characters with different motivations to keep track of.
The characters are very well done and I found the narration to be very easy to listen to. I normally listen at the slightly faster pace which worked well with this narration.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to audio book blast.
