Series: The Nosy Parker Mysteries
Genre: Journey Fiction, Historical, Mystery
Publication date: August 1, 2017
Inspired by the famous Girl Detective, the members of the Olentangy Heights Girls' Detective Society, affectionately known as the Nosy Parkers, spent their formative years studying criminology, codes, and capers. Unfortunately, opportunities to put their unique skills to work were thin on the ground in the post-war boom of their little corner of suburbia and they eventually grew up to pursue more sensible careers. Until...
Heather Munro’s youthful devotion to The Girl Detective led to a passion for digging around in history. Now pursuing her Master's Degree in Celtic Studies, Heather must balance exploring Edinburgh with her determination to excel in her all–male classes at the University. Unfortunately, on her first night working in the Archives room, she discovers the dead body of a visiting professor, the same would-be lothario she’d hoped never to see again.
As clues come to light, it’s clear someone hopes to frame Heather for the murder. Besides her quirky landlady, whom can she trust? How can she clear her name? The police and the American Consul have plenty of suspects, but only two seem to have both motive and opportunity: Heather and the quiet Scottish historian she longs to believe in.

Optimistic Heather Munro has unfortunately found herself in the wrong place at the wrong time when she is targeted as the prime suspect in the death of a distinguished American guest professor at the Scottish university where she is studying. Police deem that Heather has the motive as a possible party in a love triangle with the professor and the means since she was the only known employee in the Archives room with access to the murder weapon. With the help of her savvy landlady, Mrs. Kintyre, and two new adjunct friends from the university, Sean and Tom, Heather must put into practice her investigative skills in order to clear her name and uncover the truth. Readers are taken on a whirlwind sleuthing expedition all over Edinburgh as the gang pieces together clue after clue while also finding themselves facing dangerous foes! Marvin keeps the reader guessing at "who done it" as the complex plot unfolds, connections are made to key players in the plot, and the true motive comes out. Exciting read that kept me up late into the night!
