Then, just minutes before the start of the final round of judging for the Senior Ladies competition, Judge Nottingham is found dead in the pros' room sitting by the fireplace in a Queen Anne chair.
It's the last night of competition with a rink jam-packed with 5,000 spectators, parents, coaches and competitors (many of whom did not like Melissa Elizabeth). The final event is ready to start, and Berrien has a murdered "Judge" on her hands.
Berrien is a skating coach as well as the co-owner of the ice arena. She found the body—the second at the rink in less than two years—and becomes involved, once again, with the county sheriff deputies including tall, handsome and short-tempered Sean Mather.
Skating episodes and an intriguing murder investigation crown this new addition to the Nice Skates Ice Skating Mystery Series.

'Judge Me Nottingham' is the story of an international ice-skating judge who was found murdered in the pro's room just prior to the start of the last qualifying event for the 1995 U.S. Nationals. And based on what the TV public has seen in the 'Competitors Scores' over the years, my opinion is that one could easily deduce that many of the skaters might dream of such an event. And the 'Scoring' at the last Olympics adds more to the book's intrigue. This book nicely follows Book 1, 'Nice Shows' and continues with the adventures of Berrien Gamble, ice skating coach, ice show producer and co-owner of the 'Nice Skates Ice Arena.' Again, Berrien and her faithful dog 'Kristi' are heavily involved in another murder investigation. I'm not surprised because of Berrien's investigative nature. This book is a great follow-up to 'Nice Shows.' Please note: this reviewer believes that the series title change is appropriate, as 'Nice Skates Ice Arena' is the place where the 'Murders' occur and Berrien is again the adventurous amateur sleuth. I recommend this book very highly.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
