Good murder mystery with an interesting twist.

This is the third DI Greene novel that I have read. (I started with book #8 -- MURDER IN THE MEADOW a gripping crime mystery full of twists. This spoils some of the interesting sub-plots that Martin is developing across this series of books.)

This book was well-written with good characterisation and good pacing with the narrative.And the author does not cheat the reader by hiding clues as the mystery unfolds.

Good review on this author so I am giving her a whirl. Quite enjoyed this one. Nice writing, good characters, interesting plot with a nice twist at the end. Now reading Oxford Canal to see if the joy lasts before downloading several more of Martin's books. Nice read

Excellent structure of the story by being engrossing, entertaining and somewhat bewildering as there are many twists and turns that make guessing the ending almost impossible. Faith writes with such a colorful phrase that I am forming in my mind the beautiful Oxford locations that she describes. The characters are structured realistically in a way that makes them believable.

The second book featuring Hillary Greene and her team.
A murder that finds them hitting lots of dead ends but all the minor clues lead to the mystery being solved with the help from another team with the station.

Hillary's personal life is still being affected by her dead ex & his criminal sidelines.

Looking forward to book 3.

Hillary is a smart intelligent woman with a touch of self doubt. Makes her very believable. The other characters are equally likeable. She gets her killer (of course) but not till the final twist. Darker than some, not as dark as others. Faith Martin is Always a good read and her Hillary Greene series is recommended.

I felt it would be unfair to enjoy Faith Martin's 4 'Murder' series books I have just finished and not said a big ' thank you' for 4 such enjoyable reads. The plots keep your attention and are woven with such enjoyable characters I found myself not wanting to put the books down and go to sleep. Would recommend to those who enjoy a good read before bedtime.

I’ve just finished reading Murder at the University, the second in the DI Hillary Greene series, and immediately downloaded the next in the series, Murder of the Bride. I’m always pleased to find new writer and I’m extremely happy to have discovered Faith Martin. The first two books had great story lines, but just as important, terrific, likeable characters, well, some more likeable than others, with interesting back stories. Our hero Hillary, whilst a terrific detective, seems to be a bit of a magnet for bad luck on a personal level. I can’t help hoping things turn around for her soon. You could probably read these books as stand alone but I think you would get more enjoyment by reading them in order so you understand the full import of the background stories. Highly recommended.

Easy to read and keeps you turning the pages. Faith Martin has created a great led character in Hilary Greene no nonsense but vulnerable read the first 2 books in 3 days and. Ant wait for more

Why would anyone have reason to kill this beautiful girl. She brings happiness to so many. But one man wants her dead, and he gets his wish.
