A Course in Murder by Elizabeth Chater
You can tell by the style of clothes and a few other items that the book was written many years ago but the story is still revelant today. I read it in one quick session of time. It was entertaining even though I figured out the guilty
party early in.
Button had a busy first weeks of collage. She made an enemy of fellow freshman, got asked out by senior, even had a Dr. fall for her, witness a murder, couple trys at her life, someone harassing her and be a suspect on the murder. Button is a Preacher's daughter who's real first name is Boadicea.
Its entertaining I would love to know more about Button's life. I would read more from Elizabeth Chater in the future. I was given this ebook in exchange of honest review from Librarything.

I hurriedly turned the pages to get to the next clue. I was kept guessing until the very end. I fell in love with Boadicea. This is a great read, and enjoyable.

This was an incredibly easy read that I really enjoyed. Although it is not as action packed as most of the mysteries I read it was intriguing and kept my interest. I especially liked setting the murder on a college campus in the 1950s/60s with its formalities and customs especially for women. The story was well developed and the characters were wonderful. If you are looking for a quick fun read - try it out.

I really liked this mystery. I usually don't read cozy mysteries, but this one had enough substance to hold my interest, as well as likable characters. I would definitely read more of this author.

I thought this was great cozy mystery that moved along quickly. The characters were interesting and the plot took a few twists. I also enjoyed reliving college in the time frame of the book. Ah, those were the days of all women dorms and house mothers! Very enjoyable book! I wonder if there are any more Button books!

What a delightful mystery read! When Buttom goes away to college, she meets a wonderful group of new friends, including a loyal roommate and a prospective serious romance. What she didn't plan on was becoming witness to a murder and being put on the suspect list.

Curl up with this one and relive those college days full of new adventures (sans murder, of course!).
