Sheridan Hendley is a professor and psychologist, not a sleuth. When her colleague at Cold Creek College, Adam Millberg, is murdered, she is charged with helping the Detective assigned to the case. Immediately, her good friend becomes the prime suspect and Sheridan is motivated to help solve the case and prove Kim isn’t guilty. It also becomes apparent that Sheridan is attracted to the handsome Detective. As Sheridan tries to implement the crisis plan on campus and connect all the people in Adam’s life, she finds out that many women have a motive for Adam’s murder. Slashed tires are the first indication that Sheridan’s involvement is obviously making someone nervous.
Murder at Cold Creek College by Christa Nardi is the first in a cozy series set in Cold Creek. Prior to the start of a new school year, there is a murder of a psychology staff member. Sheridan Hendley, psychologist and professor at Cold Creek College, is tasked with taking the detective around to interview staff members. Her curiosity is piqued and without meaning to, she become an amateur sleuth. This was a cozy that I had a little trouble getting into; I felt the beginning was a bit rough and there were some editing issues that distracted me. That being said, as I continued to read, I was really drawn in to the mystery! Sheridan is a great character and I liked her more and more as the story went on. I like the setting of Cold Creek College and the town in general. Once I really got into the mystery, I enjoyed it and didn’t want to stop reading.
Murder at Cold Creek College by Christa Nardi gets 3.25 – 3.5 stars from me. If you like cozy mysteries that are not your typical storyline, this is one you will enjoy. I’m looking forward to more mysteries with Sheridan Hendley!
