About the book:
Murder Mezzo Forte (Lamplighter Mysteries, June 2016)
He is a reclusive history professor with musical hallucinations. . . .
She a headstrong professor of religion, a converted Wiccan. Earlier, they solved a campus murder, but now police say they formed two-thirds of an illicit love triangle with a newly-murdered female colleague and they’re probably guilty of her murder. A leak of the alleged scandal to the college administration threatens their jobs.
Their desperate attempt to prove themselves innocent of the triangle and the murder plunges them into a tangle of unsavory corporate relationships among college trustees. And it puts their lives in danger from a mysterious criminal organization that seems to have tentacles everywhere.
Can this ill-matched pair’s stumbling efforts succeed against the entrenched forces of the police, the college’s incompetent administration, and that powerful but unseen criminal organization? If not, they may end up unemployed, in prison, or suffering a fate much worse.

I love to find new authors and was excited to read Murder Mezzo Forte by Donn Taylor. I was not sure what to expect but really enjoyed this book. I liked that it had mystery and romance in it. The story takes place on a college campus and made for a very interesting plot. Even though I hadn’t read the book before this one I didn’t feel that I was missing anything since he did a good job of explaining everything. The book kept me interested right until the end! I can’t wait to read more from Donn Taylor.
I received a Copy of this book from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for the review.
