The Semester of Our Discontent, A Lila Maclean Mystery
by Cynthia Kuhn
English professor Lila Maclean is thrilled about her new job at prestigious Stonedale University until she finds one of her colleagues dead. She soon learns that everyone, from the chancellor to the detective working the case, believes Lila—or someone she is protecting—may be responsible for the horrific event, so she assigns herself the task of identifying the killer.
More attacks on professors follow, the only connection a curious symbol at each of the crime scenes. Putting her scholarly skills to the test, Lila gathers evidence, but her search is complicated by an unexpected nemesis, a suspicious investigator, and an ominous secret society. Rather than earning an “A” for effort, she receives a threat featuring the mysterious emblem and must act quickly to avoid failing her assignment…and becoming the next victim.

I really enjoyed reading The Semester of Our Discontent, A Lila Maclean Mystery by Cynthia Kuhn. It took me into the world of academia as a first year professor. In addition to all the struggles of a first semester, I was pulled into the mystery of several murders, incidents, and trying to solve them. The characters grew with the pace of the plot and kept me wanting to read more. This is a delightfully light read! I can’t wait to read more about the Briar Rose Society, past and present. I will be on the lookout for more of the Lila Maclean Mystery Series!
