About the Author

C. T. Collier grew up in Seneca Falls, NY, left the area for college and jobs, and always wanted to return to the Finger Lakes. Today she lives in a beautiful small city on one of the prettiest of the Finger Lakes, not unlike fictional Tompkins Falls on lovely Chestnut Lake. Most days you’ll find her writing in her tiny office looking out on a woods populated with fox, deer, wild turkeys, and songbirds. In her career as a tech-savvy college professor she has been endlessly fascinated with campus intrigue. Entirely fictional, Tompkins College is no college and every college.

An old-fashioned Agatha Christie style cozy. This is a mystery that epitomizes what is meant by a cozy—a small village, two smart, curious academics, and almost everyone in the neighborhood has motive to have buried a gun in the Pennington’s garden. The number of suspects and the cleverness of the guilty are no match for Lyssa and Kyle Pennington’s detecting skills. You’ll love the twists and turns in the plot and look forward to the next case in the Pennington investigations. I give it five stars.

Lyssa Pennington has two major unfinished projects. The first is reestablishing the prize winning rose garden at her new home and the other is successfully rebuilding her life from a former path of self-destruction. She is successfully forging a career as a professor of economics at a college in the Finger Lakes and best of all has met and married the love of her life, the suave, handsome Kyle Pennington. That doesn’t mean it’s always smooth sailing. The discovery of a hidden gun in the garden brings trouble in the progress toward both goals. Lyssa is still able to be rocked by anxiety and confusion but battles bravely to keep an even keel and solve the mystery of past events tainting the tranquility of her home. Kyle is ever understanding and supportive but some of Lyssa choices anger and terrify him. The plot is fast moving as things develop quickly. Set in a small college town, PLANTED, includes an intriguing group of supporting characters with interactions that are realistic and sometimes amusing. The Penningtons need both their professional and personal skills, as Lyssa and Kyle take on all challenges and with love, honesty and surprising inner strength and come out even stronger. This is the first in what promises to be terrific series

If you liked the witty banter of Nick and Nora Charles in the Thin Man movies, you will love Planted, the first in CT Collier's Penningtons Investigate series. Set in a small Upstate New York college town, the story begins with a bang (literally) when Kyle and Lyssa Pennington discover that someone has buried a gun in their rose garden. Soon, the debonair couple is drawn into the thick of a murder investigation. I enjoyed the smart dialogue and numerous plot twists in this story. If you are looking for a fast paced and intelligent story, you need look no further.
