    One thought on “High Marks for Murder”

    1. This book reminds me of a meringue cookie In concept it sounds good It looks appealing, but there really isn t much there but sugar and air It s a good book if you have time to spare and don t need anything taxing It takes place in England during the suffrage movement, so that is part of the back drop There s a murder at a school for young women and the insufferable men are so dismissive about the death of a female teacher who was asking for it since she was out walking in the garden at night, t [...]

    2. Save your time and money and pass on this one This story was merely fluff and lightness and had nothing solid for the reader to grasp onto The characters were one dimensional The head mistress was quite dense at times, one of her co workers squeaked at everything that happened which got old really fast and the author introduced situations which had nothing to do with the mystery and were used merely as filler I also found the ending anti climatic What a let down after slogging through this story [...]

    3. This is a new series by Rebecca Kent who also writes as Kate Kingsbury I like the Pennyfoot mysteries, so I thought I d give this a try However, while her other series has some flair and interesting characters, this one is very dry and boring It doesn t even read like the same author.I was very disappointed.

    4. Stock characters the old and slightly dotty gardener, the round cook who mothers the rebellious maids, the snotty aristocratic daughters, the standoffish yet troublingly handsome property owner, the misogynist village bobby all wandering confusedly in a tired plot with a flat denouement Cozy mysteries are meant to be light and entertaining, but this was a slog.

    5. Couldn t get into this mystery, although I have read almost all of Kate Kingsbury mysteries This series I probably will skip.

    6. This is a nice light read for those days when you want to drift back in time and spend a few days with interesting characters As a historical novel it intrigued me As a mystery it was fairly simplistic For roughly half the book I thought I d like to try in the series, but I feel it might be heading towards a relationship between the head mistress and another character I dislike I ve had that problem with another series by this author That said I think many may appreciate this lighted look at a [...]

    11. Different setting than what I usually read but enjoyable This takes place at a finishing school in England during the Edwardian period of which I know next to nothing.I did actually enjoy reading this though and found the different period in time refreshing Read quite quickly but didn t find anything missing in the story line or characters I was surprised by the choice of the culprit but satisfied with the ending Quite a few back stories for the author to develop in future books though so that s [...]

    15. I very much enjoyed this story I liked the period, I liked the characters, and though I didn t really need the interjections of the maids, I was interested and wanted to know what was going to happen I also enjoyed the supernatural aspect, even though that s something that usually puts me off I found the writing to be enjoyable, and I think I finished it in two hours I ll definitely be looking for in this series.

    16. I really wanted to love this book and I did really like some parts of it Overall though I have to say I struggled with some parts I really liked most of the characters strong and very easily likeable or dislikable as we were supposed to think One or two were just irritating including the maids Their part in the tale seemed a little too stilted A good mystery with nice dropping of clues but the story overall required a bit too much work in some places and so dragged in others.

    17. I m having a hard time writing about this book because it was 200 pages of meh I looked around the Internet to see what was going on with this book and the series and found that there are only 3 books The author gives an update on the characters past the third and final book, so I think I can be swayed to read the remaining two books This book was quick and light Great for an uninterrupted afternoon on the couch.

    18. I read this book after one of my learners had given it to us at work to lend out I read the book, as I do with our other books so I can recommend our books to our learners based on interest and reading level This book is a good start to murder mystery, although it is set back in the day before women had the right to vote It has a ghost in it and a not very exciting ending However, I know of a few learners who would read and enjoy this book I must prefer my Scottish author for mysteries.

    19. I loved the setting and very British elements the walks through the garden, the tea with dainty cups and saucers, and conversations while sitting by a warm fire Now take all of that and add a murder mystery with a ghostly twist and you ve got a pretty entertaining story I do feel like the characters personalities could have been developed a bit as they often came across as rather flat.

    20. Eh Not meant to be the great American novel or sacrilege Agatha Christie Mediocre writing, scratch the surface character development, the barest sense of place Ghostly encounters could have been expanded upon made eerie Seems like this one was cranked out Guess the next one in the series is, too.

    21. This book has me on the fence as far as a review goes The overall mystery is good, but the characters feel lacking depth to me I ll give the next book in the series a try, but I m not holding out hope.

    22. Ugh This was awful Characters were silly and unrealistic Situations happened for no apparent reason A terrible book I can t believe this hot published Still, it was better than Fifty shades of gray.

    23. This is a cozy series of mysteries by Kate Kingsbury writing as Rebecca Kent Quick mystery you can read sitting outside under a tree in the summer so the ghosts won t get you I thought it was a fun book.

    24. Read for 03.2015 Cozy Mysteries BotM.My Rating System couldn t finish, wouldn t recommend, would recommend, would read again, have read again.

    25. Boring mystery with lackluster characters Even when the mystery is solved, the conclusion is very flat yawn

    26. Good introduction to a new series Enjoy the characters, though they need developing Will look forward to seeing how they blossom in the next book.

    27. CharmingEnjoyed the new setting and characters especially Meredith The ghost aspect was good but a little vague in spots I will read .
