Review: Lessons in Love: A Cambridge Fellows Mystery by Charlie Cochrane

Lessons in Love: A Cambridge Fellows Mysteries, Book 1
Rating: 4 out of 5

Lessons in Love: A Cambridge Fellows Mysteries, Book 1Summary: Jonty and Orlando live in a time where being gay is dangerous and maybe even illegal. Both professors at an all male college, the two men, after getting off to a bad start become quite good friends. They share many thoughts over tea and coffee, and they even spend late nights playing chess or cards. When a student ends up dead, they begin to help the police solve the murder, questioning their students to see if anyone might now what became of the dead man. When it's brought to the attention of the police that the student may have been murdered because he enjoyed the company of men over women, the police begin to pursue that angle. Jonty and Orlando begin to explore their relationship as well. When two more students are found dead, the two begin to question whether or not they'll be able to keep their love a secret among the chaos of a murderer on the loose.

My thoughts:  When I got this book from Amazon it was a free title. I thought it sounded interesting so I got it. I wasn't disappointed with the title, but some may find this title disturbing because it is about a gay relationship. However, there is a mystery to solve and when everything comes to light, it's not hard to feel sorry for the one committing the crimes. There is a sad story to tell, but it's nice to see our two main characters, Jonty and Orlando grow as friends and as lovers.

My only real complaint about this title is that the ending was too soon. I wanted more to their story. I really didn't want it to end as fast as it did. This is a pretty short read, with lots of previews of other titles from Samhain Publishing. There are several other books in this series, so their story does continue. I just wanted a slightly longer novel.
