    1. Maggie Barbieri has added yet another fantastic mystery to the Mystery 101 series. Quick Study contained a great mystery that kept me guessing until the very end.Summary:Alison Bergeron has a lot going on. It's her birthday, the Rangers are in the playoffs, she is navigating her still new relationship with Detective Bobby Crawford, and trying to dodge a new admirer's affection. Needless to say, she has no time for a murder or the sleuthing involved in solving it. Regardless, it's the nephew of a [...]

    2. Although I didn't enjoy this book quite as much as the first 2 in the series, I still thought it was a lot of fun and definitely worth reading. I am looking forward to reading book 4 in the series. A note on the Kindle edition: Terrible formatting! I seriously considered returning it but since I really, really wanted to read it on Kindle I just put up with it. First off, the font was strange (different from the standard Kindle book font). I had to increase the font size to read it, but increasin [...]

    3. Summary: A young man has gone missing and his family asks Alison to look in to it knowing her connections to the police via boyfriend Bobby Crawford. Unfortunately he has been found dead and it's up to Alison and Crawford to solve the mystery behind his death.Thoughts: I read this right after finishing the second book and I found it even choppier. I don't know why but it seemed to jump around a lot and left me rather unsatisfied.The mystery as a whole was also unsatisfying. While I cared about t [...]

    4. I blindly checked this out from the library list of new books. Based on the title, I thought it was going to be a guide to murder/forensics. I'm in the process of researching good ways to kill people--so I thought this would be a good reference book. It's bad chick-lit, bad mystery, bad dialog, bad characters, just bad all around. I kept plugging away (needing a distraction from the emotionally charged Algernon) but couldn't take it any more. I don't know who-done-it and I don't care. This is go [...]

    5. (Mystery, 2008) Found this on the ship as well. Allison cannot keep from following clues when she finds a mystery, much to the distress of her boyfriend, Bobby, and his fellow police. This is third in a series. I read the first portion of the story and stopped. The character is annoying, freely lies to those around her to follow her curiosity, causes trouble and harm to others as she goes. Eventually, since I had read everything else in the room, I finished the story. It was all right, but not o [...]

    6. I was really disappointed especially after enjoying the last two books. Alison reason for putting everything on the line for this case did not make sense. Max was really annoying in this book.

    8. Another in the series involving Alison Bergeron. This time shady building practices the focus. Still like her, though won't continue in this series for awhile.

    9. Good read 2nd half. Slow at the beginning. Couldn't figure out why she cared so much about victims when she had little relationship with them. Love Crawford though.

    10. I think the best line out of this was My vagina is not a filing cabinet at was what Max said when she and Alison were discussing something. Another fun mystery read with great lines.

    12. (E-Lib) Good one. I like how Allison is a huge Rangers fand that she got to meet her idol. I also like that Allison befriended Frankie's mom. All of the characters seem to be realistic in their reactions/actions, which I appreciate.

    13. Twists and turns of relationships with Alison and her friend Max (who married Crawford's partner Fred).

    14. The third in the "Murder 101" series, Quick Study features Professor Allison Bergeron, her boyfriend, Detective Bobby Crawford, and a murder mystery. This time, a young immigrant has been murdered, and when the boy's uncle asks Allison to help solve the mystery, she's immediately on the case.Barbieri writes a witty story, and I enjoy her style. The mysteries are simple - as a cozy should be - and the dialog is fun. After having read the first three books in this series, I'm a bit tired of Alliso [...]

    17. I am so, so glad that I finally started reading this series again. I read the first book in the series -- Murder 101 many, many years ago (2006) and enjoyed it quite a bit. I couldn't read more books in the series because, at that point, there weren't any!I suppose I should cut myself some slack about not following Barbieri and keeping up more closely because of various Major Life Events. And, honestly, the pleasure of rediscovering her now is pretty darned enjoyable.It's hard to understand how [...]

    18. Didn't like this one as much as the first, the main character was very annoying. Won't be continuing the series.Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won't go out of m [...]

    19. Another enjoyable book in the series. As part of a community service assignment Alison must work at a soup kitchen and meets some needy individuals. She hires a man and his nephew to paint in her house; the nephew ends up missing and then found dead near a luxury condo development. Alison gets involved in trying to find the killer, much to the disdain of her detective boyfriend, and ends up getting involved in some tricky situations. Lots of funny parts in the book, SPOILER??? such as Alison try [...]

    20. Professor Alison Bergeron is a devout NY Rangers fan, dates a local policeman, teaches English at a small Catholic college in NYC, and is very funny. This was my first read--and the book just got funnier (laugh out loud) as I went along--and this is the 3rd book in the series. Must re-visit. Love the dog, the academic setting (nuns and all), the self-deprecating humor (probably helps that Alison is tall), and the topical issues (in this case, green cards). Good cozy. Easy to recommend. Barbieri [...]

    21. Professor Alison Bergeron once again makes the life of a college professor look very interesting indeed. She finally meets her detective boyfriend's daughters, still dodging her priest's gorgeous brother and pulling another Nancy Drew-like mystery during her busy days. Alison meets a family from Ecuador while serving Sunday dinners at a local church. When nephew Jose comes up missing, Alison turns to boyfriend Crawford for some assistance. Jose has turned up dead and now the family patriarch is [...]

    24. Maggie Barbieri is a tough woman who duked it out with cancer and won. Instead of folding inside of herself, she chose to live outward, which included writing wonderful mysteries for us to read. She writes about the serious situations in life with a sense of humor using Alice Bergeron, an English professor in a small Catholic college. A woman I admire and an author I love to read.

    25. Professor Alison Bergeron is doing community service, serving dinners at a church, and befriends a family of undocumented aliens. When the nephew of the family is murdered, and the father disappears, Alison decides to "help" her policeman boyfriend investigate. Could Jose's death be connected to his work on a new condo development along the Hudson River?

    26. After reading two books that seemed to take themselves way too seriously, I wanted a book that was the exact opposite. This series isn't perfect but it's solid and I like that the protagonist is not only an amateur sleuth but also a college English professor. The only thing missing is an awesome academic librarian.

    27. Another great sequelI feel like the characters are finally settling in a rhythm. Alison has really grown on me and I'm enjoying her more in the sequels than in the original book. Looking forward to reading more books in this series.

    28. Third book in a lighthearted mystery series involving a female English professor at a small Catholic college & her NYPD boyfriend. Poker-playing-ancient-nuns, martinis, a dead body or two, with just the right amount of romance.

    29. This was a comedown after her terrific debut novel, Murder 101. Humor was forced and story dragged. I ended up setting it aside about half way through and don't know if I'll go back to it but probably not.

    30. Maggie Barbieri's book just get better and better. Quick Study is the third book in her Murder 101 series and this time out Alison, Max and Det. Crawford are in it up to their eyeballs. I started this book at 6pm this evening and put it down, finished at 1245 pm. That's how enthralling it was.
