Editor reviews

Allison Bergeron finds herself in another sticky situation in this the 7th book, of Maggie Barbieri’s Murder 101 series. She figures throwing her stepdaughters a birthday party is the right thing to do even if it means being around her husband's dysfunctional ex in-laws. All good deeds don’t go unpunished, though, and when the girls’ estranged uncle shows up with $5,000 for each and subsequently turns up dead with a mattress full of cash, Allison finds she can’t help but get involved. Gayle Hendrix returns with her sassy take on the hip young amateur sleuth who seems to attract mystery. A fun, engrossing listen for fans of the series or contemporary female takes on the mystery genre.

Summary

Alison Bergeron has her doubts about hosting a birthday party for her twin stepdaughters, seeing as it’ll include all of her new husband’s ex-in-laws. Still, she’s a good sport, and everyone has a great time, especially the girls, who receive $10,000 from their estranged uncle, Chick.

The girls’ father, NYPD Detective Bobby Crawford, and Christine, his ex, think the gift is too much. When Crawford swings by Chick’s apartment to return it, he finds Chick dead, with roughly $250,000 stuffed in his mattress. The death is ruled a suicide, but Christine isn’t convinced, and even Alison can’t help but admit that there must be a lot more to Chick’s death than meets the eye.

Extra Credit, the latest in Maggie Barbieri’s stellar Murder 101 series, finds Alison and Bobby delving into family secrets they’d both rather leave untouched.

Can't wait for the next one

This is one of the funniest series I have created. Professor Alison Bergeron hosts a birthday party for her twin stepdaughters. The girlsreceive $10,000 from their estranged uncle, Chick. He of course is murdered and Allison reluctantly gets involved. This book has serious character development and I wonder if it was the last in the series. If so, it was great while it lasted. If there is another book in the future it will only be funnier and have lots of complications.

Great series

Loved the last book on this series but why did it have to end? I'll miss Alison and her misadventures.
