When freshman year at the University of Alabama draws to a close, Sara Donovan finds herself grappling with the same old question—listen to her head or follow her heart. What she ends up doing is purchasing an Egyptian souvenir funerary mask, and after a mysterious phone call, she's certain a ring of antiquities smugglers are operating in Tuscaloosa.
With finals never far from her mind and her return to 'Bama hanging in the balance, she should be studying. Instead she launches her own investigation to prove her mask is indeed a stolen artifact, and not a cheap trinket. When it comes time to snoop, Sara is more than ready, or at least she was until a hot new teaching assistant moves in next door.
Suddenly she learns things are never as they seem. Ever.
Fun start to a cozy and ya mystery series
What a hoot! This is the first in the Mauzzy and Me Mystery series and definitely kicks the series off with a laugh. Considering the humor and almost unbelievable snap decisions of the protagonist, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the mystery was actually quite complex! I was quite literally guessing until then end. After the big reveal I was like WHAT?? And then AHHHH OF COURSE. So definitely recommend this fun read for those who enjoy a funny light vibe but still a complex mystery.
