Everything’s coming up roses for Professor Emmeline Prather. Her scholarly book is finished, spring term is coming to a close, and her love life is blossoming. Then the festival surrounding the exhibit of Shakespeare’s First Folio opens, bringing with it a tempest more dramatic than the bard’s.
In his panel presentation, actor and grad student Tanner Sparks contends Shakespeare isn’t Shakespeare, boasting that he can prove the long-debated theory that an aristocrat actually penned the sonnets and plays. His bombshell sets off an acrid debate among scholars. But were they upset enough to kill him? That’s what Em wonders when Tanner is found dead in Shakespeare’s Garden, his macabre pose inspired by a scene from Hamlet.
At her department head’s urging, Em sets out to find the killer. Suspects abound, and Em finds herself targeted by Shakespeare-themed threats. Undaunted, she persists, determined to solve the case before the end of the semester.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Another great adventure with the English Professor! Emmeline is excited to be part of an upcoming Shakespeare festival at the college that includes the presence of a copy of the First Folio. If course this includes lots of experts on the subject with differing opinions. Tempers flair and a promising grad student is found dead. Asked by her boss to get involved she quickly starts nosing around leading us on a merry adventure as the clues unfold. Filled with Shakespeare facts along with the literary twists we have come to expect this makes for a fun read full of all types of characters to both love and hate. Perfect for fans of cozies. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
