Claire Molloy runs a bookstore called the Book Depot in a small college town. She lets her friend, romance author Azalea Twilight, use the store for a book signing party. But when the town's toughest feminist bursts in and reads from Azalea's book, Claire discovers the smutty romance uses details from her own husband's death. Incensed, Claire is ready to kill Azalea, but someone beats her to it. Azalea is dead, and Claire is a suspect, along with half the faculty at the college, all of whom Azalea offended along the way.

She would have killed for a bestseller—but someone beat her to it...

Professor of Passion, the smutty new romance from Mildred Twiller—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—stranged with a tightly knotted silk scarf. Now it's up to Clair 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?

Find out in Joan Hess' first Claire Malloy mystery novel Strangled Prose.
