Mother's Day (Professor Molly Mysteries, #6)

With her round-the-clock morning sickness (along with "helpful" pregnancy advice coming ...

    This was my first Professor Molly novella, and I enjoyed writing in the shorter format.

    Professor Molly Barda's money-motivated dean has another fundraising project for her: being the "tutierge" (tutor-concierge) for an academically struggling student whose wealthy mother is believed to be dying. She'll be tutoring him in statistics, a course she's never taught.And Molly, still concealing her pregnancy at work, will be tutoring him at his home, filled with smells that are a challenge to her stomach, still queasy with morning sicknes...

    Mother's Day. Frankie Bow. A different approach to a mystery. As we are introduced to the many colorful characters, I'm waiting for the mystery to unfold. We have an annoying director of "Friendraising", a charming hubby, an irritating long distance mother, a University faculty environment, a wealthy patroness, and her bit of do-nothing son. Or at least at first glance. The long distance soon to be grandmother mentions Somoan ethnicity, so one as...

    Mother’s Day is a quick read for mystery fans who fancy a touch of exotic scenery. The story combines gritty realism in the misery of university fundraising with cozy mystery and a pregnant protagonist whose mother rules the roost from far away. Professor Molly, a teacher who hates math and smells, is compelled to teach statistics to a private student in a house filled with olfactory pitfalls. Pregnancy has sent her nose into a nose-dive and he...

    Mahina State is on the scrounge again. In order to curry favour with a wealthy benefactor, Professor Molly Barda has been assigned the unenviable task of providing private tutoring, for a less than average student. While dealing with her all-day morning sickness, the pregnant Professor manages unwanted advice from her mother, friends and relatives, all the while uncovering the sordid family history of her charge. Very entertaining and easy to rea...

    I received this book for free in return for an honest review. This was a fun novella. It follows Professor Molly as she navigates her way through office politics (to keep her job), her dysfunctional parents, trying to home tutor a college student that lacks all motivation so that the college can get a huge donation (to also help keep her job.) Then it seems that someone is planning murder in the home of her student that is being tutored. The char...

    The characters are developed, all uniquely quirky, the heroine is quite witty, and the storyline is well written.

    I loved this book as much as the others in this series. It's fun seeing how Molly reacts to being pregnant while trying to hide it from the general public. Again Frankie takes her Readers down one path only to spring another killer onto us at the end.

    MOTHER'S DAY is a cute, short read. The characters are all uniquely quirky, and the heroine has a wit that can be laugh-out-loud funny. It was more general fiction than mystery, but still enjoyable.Disclosure: I was given a free copy of this book.

    This is a short cozy mystery that won't take long to read. Professor Molly is assigned to teach a sick student that has to stay at home. She discovers something isn't quite right at the house and leads her to uncover a murder and an attempted murder.

    A truly nice short story, that shows how one person can make the difference.I enjoyed the storyline and characters, particularly Professor Molly and her wittiness. Humor and sad moments mix in an interesting book. If you enjoy cozy mysteries, this book is for you.

    This is my first Frankie Bow mystery, but will not be the last. The story moves quickly, and Professor Molly is a great character. The author packs a lot into this shorter novella format. I finished it too quickly. I wasn't ready for the book to end.I requested and received an Advance Reader Copy of this book. My review is voluntary and the opinions my own.

    This was my first Frankie Bow mystery. I did not realize it was a novella when I started reading it, but when I finished it forty minutes later, it was evident. (It’s hard to tell on a Kindle – don’t judge me.) I was so disappointed that the story ended so quickly. Looking back at the story I was impressed at how informative and in-depth the author’s situations were, especially for a novella. This could have easily been made into a full-l...
