"If you like your cozy mysteries with humor and a satisfying dose of sarcasm, Frankie Bow is your go-to author."― Laura's Interests Book Blog

Forced to attend the Student Retention Office's summer retreat, Professor Molly brings her game of buzzword bingo to fend off boredom. But when the insufferable Kent Lovely, Mahina State's one-man hostile work environment, collapses face-first into his haupia cheesecake, the afternoon goes from dull to disastrous. Now Molly has to fight to keep an innocent out of prison -- and herself off the unemployment line.

From the Author:

I love to read traditional and cozy mysteries, and I write what I like to read. 
My influences include:

  • The book and play reviews of Dorothy Parker 
  • The Jeeves and Wooster stories by P.G. Wodehouse 
  • The Mapp and Lucia books by E.F. Benson 
  • Sarah Caudwell's Hilary Tamar mysteries 
  • The Provincial Lady series by E.M. Delafield
  • Anything by Dave Barry 
  • Everything by Allie Brosh, including her calendars 
  • Arnold Lobel's Frog and Toad

About the Author:

Like Molly Barda, Frankie Bow teaches at a public university. Unlike her protagonist, she is blessed with delightful students, sane colleagues, a loving family, and a perfectly nice office chair. She believes if life isn't fair, at least it can be entertaining. In addition to writing murder mysteries, she publishes in scholarly journals. Her experience with academic publishing has taught her to take nothing personally.

The Molly Barda Mysteries, in order: #1 The Musubi Murder#2 The Cursed Canoe#3 The Black Thumb#4 The Invasive Species#5 The Blessed Event#0 is The Case of the Defunct Adjunct, the prequel. In Defunct Adjunct the reader learns why Molly has a yoga ball for an office chair, and sees her first reaction to her eventual love interest. Sign up for news of releases, giveaways, and events at bit.ly/SpamMe.
