Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Kidnapping and murder, no strangers to Balaclava Agricultural College, expose doughty professor Peter Shandy to the lifestyle of the rich, if not famous. Shandy, last seen in Something in the Water, is desultorily investigating the disappearance of his neighbor James Feldster, head of the dairy management department, when the missing man's awful wife, Mirelle, is discovered dead and covered with blood. Mystery writer Catriona McBogle, visiting the Shandys during a spell of writer's block, accidentally finds the missing man unconscious in a limousine at the bottom of a ravine off a deserted road. For complicated reasons, she keeps his whereabouts mostly secret. That the henpecked dairy professor is heir to a major dairy dynasty and that his late wife is rumored to have bestowed her affections freely around Balaclava are issues that fearsome college President Thorkjeld Svenson wants kept out of the papers. Shandy takes the recovered but reluctant Feldster to the family manse to take charge of the family fortune and dispossess his nephew, Florian, as head of the family. In the 10th Shandy tale, MacLeod again demonstrates her skill and with incomparable whimsy makes her bucolic puzzles great fun. Mystery Guild selection. (Aug.)
Library Journal
Series star Peter Shandy is the last person to see fellow professor Jim Feldstera man who welcomes any excuse to get away from his wifebefore he disappears. When Feldster's wife accuses the Shandys of hiding her husband, they begin sleuthing. Another series charmer.

"Endearing...bewitching!"
Kirkus Reviews
Peter Shandy, botany professor at Balaclava Agricultural College and sometime sleuth (Something in the Water, 1994, etc.), lives, with librarian wife Helen, next door to dairy-management Professor Jim Feldster and Mirelle, his harridan of a wife. Taciturn to a fault, but a member of umpteen lodges, Jim disappears one night on the way to a lodge meeting. The Shandys' house guest, mystery writer Catriona McBogle, on her way home to Maine and exercising her penchant for getting lost, finds herself on a little-used, treacherous road and spies a car at the bottom of a ravine. It contains a trussed-up, dehydrated, near-dead Jim Feldster. Catriona had already unearthed Jim's carefully hidden kinship with the famous Feldstermeister clan of Dairies International, whose patriarch has just died, leaving Jim the head honcho. As Jim slowly recovers in the luxurious family manse, a neighbor back in Balaclava Junction has discovered Mirelle's blood- covered body seated in her pristine, white-carpeted living room. Peter's efforts to make some sense of it all aren't helped by village policeman Fred Ottermole, Mirelle's eccentric doctor Howland Melchett, or college president Svenson's hatred of publicity; events, however, quickly overtake all these wonderfully weird characters.

Nit-pickers could wish for less of the Shandys' somewhat smug banter; less food and cat chat; fewer over-the-top characters; and a plotline less bizarre. But the story is incident-packed, often wryly funny, and intriguing most of the way. The author's legion of fans will undoubtedly love every minute.

    I can’t express how much I enjoy Charlotte MacLeod’s stories.  She creates characters that invite you into their quiet life while they hunt for who did it.  Her style makes me think of Georgette Heyer’s mysteries and Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple mysteries.
