    One thought on “The Case of the Clobbered Cad”

    1. I'm gobsmacked over how utterly delicious this book is. (And also that the author used gobsmacked in a sentence in the story!) My inner girl sleuth is doing tailspins and loop-de-loos and I'm still grinning like a Cheshire Cat over how much of a campy fun read this was.If you are looking for something Nancy Drewish for grown-ups look no further. The Nosy Parker Mystery series is definitely going to satisfy. And seriously, can you get any more retro than this title? Clobbered Cad -- snicker.It's [...]

    2. This is an incredibly fun, fun read!! The intrigue, the mystery, the suspense, the delightful, but sometimes quirky characters, the setting, and the secrets all combined to keep me on the edge of my seat, trying to solve who the murderer was. But there were constantly reasons to NOT rule out just about everybody, and reasons to suspect each one. Then there is the adorable Mrs. K, whom I hope will be in another story. The story has great truths about forgiveness, especially of one’s ownself, wa [...]

    3. 4.5 stars Not only do I get my Nancy Drew fix, but we also get to go to SCOTLAND!!! Men in kilts. Feisty landladies. Red phone booths. Wellies. Afternoon tea. History around every corner. Scotland Yard. I’m giddy! Gobsmacked, even. And the mystery is so well-written, full of twists and turns and delicious little tidbits filtered in at the perfect moment. Heather and her marvelous landlady, Mrs. K, are a dynamic duo to be sure, and Heather’s two suitors (the clobbered cad, notwithstanding) ar [...]

    4. This was a very entertaining murder mystery like Nancy Drew, Miss Marple, and Agatha Christie.The roller- coaster suspense kept my eyes glued to the page along with the engaging characters, the intriguing story line, and the beautiful scenery of Scotland.I recommend this book to those that like cozy mysteries.An arc was given to me by the author. My opinions are 100% my own.

    5. See full review at: joyofreadingweb.wordpressThe Case of the Clobbered Cad is such an exciting, page-turning mystery! You don’t have to read very far into the story for the Cad to be Clobbered. With many twists and turns, this story will keep you guessing right to the end! This is the first book I’ve read from Debra Marvin, and I foresee many more books of Debra’s in my future.What first captured my attention is the setting of the story. Edinburgh, Scotland, 1956. For many years now I have [...]

    6. The Case of the Clobbered Cad is a thoroughly enjoyable cozy in a great setting. I enjoyed getting a glimpse of 1956 Edinburgh with Heather as she is trying so hard to settle into her new graduate (or, as they'd say around there, post-graduate) program. She, and we, know that she has to be extra good at it to be accorded any respect, as virtually the only woman in the department. So we can understand the double problem presented by the presence of a professor on whom she developed a crush on the [...]

    7. If you’re after a cozy mystery to curl up with for a couple of hours, look no further. Heather Munro has you covered! It may be a while since the days of the Olentangy Heights Girls’ Detective Society, but she hasn’t lost her curiosity or her desire to solve a mystery; particularly when it could save her from being arrested!Heather is only recently arrived in Edinburgh at the opening of this story, fresh from a crossing of the Atlantic where she met charming and charismatic fiction author, [...]

    8. For fans of Nancy Drew, Agatha Christie, or cozy mysteries in general, The Case of The Clobbered Cad is a treat! Main character, Heather Munro is on the case of the murder of the much hated celebrity archaeologist/author/professor Jack Winters. There is no lack of suspects; everyone seems to have a motive and opportunity. And the police, though completely in control of the investigation, seem to have preconceived notions of just whodunit! It takes Heather, with a little help from her landlady, t [...]

    9. "It didn't make any sense. Nothing made any sense." It's only her first night on the job, and masters student Heather Munro has found a dead body in the archives room; worse still, she knows the man; an American professor visiting Edinburgh University as a guest lecturer, but there's more to the story. Much, much more. Fearing that she is already a suspect, Heather confides in her landlady and two other young history professors to discover evidence surrounding the murder of the handsome, flirtat [...]

    10. This was my first cozy mystery, and I had no idea what to expect. I was surprised at how fast we were thrown into the mystery at the beginning of the book, but it certainly kept the action coming. I loved Mrs. Kintyre, Heather's landlady. I felt like her character served a lot of purpose by providing a colorful sidekick and sounding board for Heather. Despite the book description mentioning Heather's childhood spent solving mysteries in her own hometown, there was very little if any connection d [...]

    11. I absolutely loved the Title of this book and it fit so perfectly!This is a delightful extension of the members of the "Olentangy Heights Girls' Detective Society" series. This has a lot of adventure and a touch of romance. Fast-paced, but slightly predictable, there were enough twists to keep the reader unsure of the outcome.The only thing I felt lacking was a stronger ending. For this reason I give it Four and a Half Stars*This book was gifted me with no expectations for a positive review. Thi [...]

    13. Girl detective Nancy Drew was my first introduction to suspense and mystery novels and I have been a fan since reading The Secret of the Old Clock. Debra E. Marvin has written a book that reminded me why I loved these books so much. The black silhouette of a young woman holding a magnifying glass on the cover of The Case of the Clobbered Cad was the first indication that I was in for a treat and my introduction to Heather Munroe in the first chapter convinced me that I needed to keep reading. He [...]

Marvin, is a fun trip back to the 1950’s, and it includes all of the elements of those great black & white mystery movies from that era.

The intelligent and attractive Miss Heather Monro is headed off to Edinburgh, Scotland as a grad student. She is looking forward to the excitement and romance of this trip.She gets a little of the "romance" on the ship delivering her, as she develops a small and soon cured "crush" on an American celebrity visiting professor. She did not know the same professor would be teaching at her universit [...]

    16. What a well written novel. The talk, the setting, the situations – all seemed realistic to the location and time period of the story. The research that Ms. Marvin put into this novel was evident in every page. Aside from that, the mystery was great and I found myself diving in head first to finding the killer. In fact, I’m not who wanted it more, me or Heather. The way that the clues were given was genius. I had my theories of course, as will you. But here’s the thing, just when you are go [...]

    18. What could be more fun than experiencing a cozy murder mystery in one of my favourite countriesScotland! This was a fun, fast-paced murder mystery that had many suspects.

However, during her first eveni [...]

    19. If the cover doesn't 'get you' check it out anyway. I am somewhat of a cover junkie. If it doesn't click for me I probably won't pick it up. This one is different. You can't judge a book by it's cover. I read the synopsis (huge surpriseI usually don't) and I thought to myself 'well dawng' I wish I had read book 1. I loved the idea of the teens girl sleuths that grew up and to pursue sensible careers.So what happened to the group in book 1 The Counterfeit Clue.I have it on my list. This is a seri [...]

    20. Optimistic Heather Munro has unfortunately found herself in the wrong place at the wrong time when she is targeted as the prime suspect in the death of a distinguished American guest professor at the Scottish university where she is studying.

    23. There were so many elements that I love featured in this book, an inquisitive girl detective, the beautiful setting of Scotland, a look at college life, interesting characters, and an intriguing mystery that left me guessing until the end.

The murder victim wasn't very well liked, so there were quite a few s [...]
