New York Mystery

Finished January 11
Murder 101 by Maggie Barbieri
This fast-moving mystery centers around Alison Bergeron, a literature professor at a small Catholic college in New York City. First Alison's old Volvo is stolen from the college parking lot. Then two NYPD homicide detectives show up to grill her. Her car has been found with the body of one of her students inside.
Alison is supported by her old school friend Max, yet still keeps getting into hot water. One of the detectives, Bobby Crawford, thinks she is an innocent victim, and tries to give her support when he can, but not even he can keep her out of trouble.
Alison comes across as smart, too-nice (especially to those who don't deserve it), and a bit of a klutz. I can relate!
This is the first in a series, and I'll have to hunt out the others.
