Murder Mezzo Forte Blog Tour With #Review

Murder Mezzo Forte 

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.

MY REVIEW- Donn Taylor is a new author to me. I have read many mysteries, and I almost didn't request this one when I saw the part about her being a former Wiccan. I really don't like when references are made to anything like that. But I went ahead and requested it since I do love a good mystery.

Needless to say my feelings are mixed about this one. The characters were entertaining and the dialogue was fun, but there were times I felt it moved really slow. Sometimes the pace was quite good and things moved along fast, but then it would drag. It wasn't enough to keep me from finishing the book for sure, but it was enough that I felt it needed mention. The mystery aspect was good and while the Wiccan stuff was definitely in the book, it wasn't an overwhelming part. Overall a good book but not a favorite.
