Synopsis: The murder of an author of a libelous novel points to Claire Malloy, the widow of a college professor and owner of a bookstore, as a prime suspect, until her teenaged daughter is implicated in the crime

From the Back Cover: Professor of Passion, the smutty new romance from Mildred Twiler--a.k.a. Azalea Twilight--isn't the kind of book Claire Malloy likes to hock at her bookstore, but Claire agrees to host a book party for her friend's trashy tale. As torrid as the novel is, it's nothing compared to the evening. After the party, poor Mildred is found dead in her home--strangled with a tightly knotted silk scarf. Now it's up to Claire to find Mildred's killer, and it won't be easy--the two-bit author had offended nearly every faculty member she worked with at nearby Faber College. But who could have hated Mildred with such smoldering passion?
