Death Without Tenure by Joanne Dobson (audiobook)

Death Without Tenure (A Karen Pelletier Mystery #6) - Christine  Williams, Joanne Dobson

Series: Karen Pelletier #6

 

I haven't read the rest of this series but this one was available from the library and it seemed like it might be a cute cozy. It wasn't great, but I don't think its problems are worse than for other books in the genre. I don't think this was a great option for audio because the narrator almost seemed to be barking the dialogue at times and the pronunciation of Karen Pelletier's last name was egregious. Sure, it was an Americanized pronunciation and Karen is American, but every time that "tier" was pronounced "teer" instead of "tiay" or "tsiay", it was like there were fingernails on the blackboard of my soul.

 

Overall it was your typical lacklustre mystery where the main character is suspected of murder by the policy because she had an altercation with the victim. I wasn't hampered by jumping in part way through the series though, so that was good.
