As part of a blog tour organized by Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours, today’s post features a new cozy mystery release – The Perfect Body – the latest Professor Molly Mystery by Frankie Bow.
When Professor Molly attends Mahina State University’s exclusive donor dinner, she doesn’t expect to have to share a table with the insufferable Stephen Park. Turns out it’s one thing to invite your toxic ex-boyfriend to drop dead…it’s quite another when he takes you up on it.
I like Molly. She is smart. Of course, she feels bad when Stephen Park is found dead but what really gets her going is the possibility that someone might try to pin his death on her husband, Donnie. In between juggling care for her infant daughter and catching up on paperwork, she is determined to root out the truth. And her wardrobe mishaps definitely added a touch of humor.
The characters are diverse and interesting, each with his/her own personalities, including Stephen and his date, Bee. Not to mention Molly’s best friend and partner-in-crime, Emma.
The plot moved along at a steady pace, with several plot twists on route to its final resolution. Overall, this is a pleasant and well written read for cozy mystery fans.
This is the eighth book in the Professor Molly series, but it can definitely be read as a standalone.
FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book as part of this blog tour. This has not affected the content of my review in any way.

About the Author
Like Professor Molly, Frankie Bow teaches at a public university. Unlike her protagonist, she is blessed with delightful students, sane colleagues, 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 under her real name. Her experience with academic publishing has taught her to take nothing personally.
