When Celia Sommerville's fiance is found dead, an apparent suicide, she determines to unravel the mystery of his death

From Publishers Weekly:

Displaying the inventiveness and wit that make her a favorite of mystery fans, Borgenicht presents her 15th tale of deceit and murder. Celia Sommerville is snubbed at the university where she works after she jilts her fiance, professor George Theroux, and he kills himself in a small Vermont town. Sure that the stiff, selfish man never would have committed suicide, Celia decides to prove he was murdered. With the help of her one remaining friend, Jason Bailey, she goes to the town to help retired, nearly blind Professor Ellsworth, father of George's prep-school classmate Roy, who had died years earlier. Ideas from Ellsworth's theories on child-rearing (the basis of his current book) generate Celia's suspicions about the Ellsworth family, with whom she becomes warily involved: the late Roy's managing widow, their disreputable offspring and an in-law who vanishes inexplicably. At the height of tension, Jason appears to add surprises to the solution of a crime which is anything but academic, regardless of the characters' milieu.

From Library Journal:

When a woman breaks her engagement and her former fiance is found shot with a gun in his hand, suicide is assumed. But Celia Sommerville knows that he would never have done anything so tasteless. The key seems to be held by a former professor of literature. Celia goes to Vermont to act as the professor's secretary, meets his strange family, and is made privy to its secrets. But are they telling the truth? Smooth reading in this conventional mystery with traditional characters. JV
