First in the Peter Shandy series. Wonderful author. You must give it a chance. If you love Tim Myers series you will love this series. The main character in the book is a professor who finds a dead body in his house and he sets out to solve the murder before the bodies start piling up. It is funny at times - this is not too serious mystery.

WONDERFUL read! First in the Peter Shandy series at Balaclava College. Fantastic, yet very real characters, complete locale, You will feel that you have somehow found the mysterious county that is somewhere south of Maine. Witty, smart, this is a cozy mystery you can lose yourself in.

The start of a very charming series about a professor at a Western Massachusetts college who dabbles in solving crimes. The running characters are quirky and the humor is sly and witty. Delightful!

Enjoyed this first of the Peter Shandy books. Will continue to read. MacLeods' phrasing is wonderful and she has a great sense of humor.

Written earlier in the author's career, this book is better than recent ones.

This is a fun story with lots of higher level jokes and puns. This is my second time through the series and it doesn't disappoint.

For years, Professor Peter Shandy has been badgered by Jemima Ames, Assistant Librarian and Annual Chairperson, to decorate his campus home for the Grand Illumination which is Balaclava Agricultural College's main fund-raising event. Now he can hold out no longer.
Goaded to madness, he buries his small brick house under an avalanche of plastic reindeer, flashing lights, and fake Santa Clauses. Hooks up an amplifier blaring "All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth," locks the switches at "on," and escapes to sea on a tramp steamer.
Shipwrecked and conscience-stricken, he crawls back to face his irate colleagues, and finds Jemima Ames dead on his living room floor. Police and security guards say it's an accident; Shandy says it's murder. President Thorkjeld Svenson says he'd better find out the truth without wrecking the Illumination...or the next corpse will be Shandy's.
