Smart, But Dead
by Nancy G. West

This book was full of mystery and fast paced and her curiosity at times lands her sticky situations.
~Community Bookstop

This is a very fast-paced mystery, and Aggie’s curiosity gets her into some very sticky situations.
~Book Babble

Smart, But Dead receives a high grade from me. Ms. West’s words are witty (try saying that a few times quickly), the characters live and breathe, and I look forward to Aggie’s next adventure!
~Back Porchervations

Smart, But Dead is a cozy mystery full of humor, suspense, heartache, and, in this case, panic and fear. The plot takes the reader all over the place.
~Sapphyria’s Book Reviews

The story line itself was interesting, and the true murderer was revealed only after a series of unexpected twists.
~Cassidy Salem Reads & Writes

I enjoyed the story…
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

Smart, But Dead is easy to read and fast-paced, full of wit and humor…I found Aggie to be a fresh character in a cozy mystery character canvas.

Skirting forty and appalled by the prospect of descending into middle-age decrepitude, Aggie Mundeen blasts off to the local university to study the genetics of aging. In addition to providing youthful hints for readers of her column, “Stay Young with Aggie,” Aggie is doggedly determined to stay young.
Despite conflicts with her professor, she learns about the Human Genome Project and DNA. When she discovers a dead body, Detective Sam reminds her not to “help” with the investigation. But dangerously curious and programmed to prod, she races to solve the crime, winds up the prime suspect and is on target to become next campus corpse.

About This Author

I’ve been writing since age seven: poems back and forth with my mom. I had a real poem published in the Library Journal, Pegasus, at age fifteen. At eighteen, I wanted to study journalism and English literature, but friends who chose that college route were making minimum wage or selling lingerie. Being practical, I earned a business degree. After marriage and two children, I decided I HAD to study literature and write. I wrote non-fiction articles, a biography, and a suspense novel in 2004. That’s when whimsical Aggie Mundeen cut through the suspense, popped into my head and demanded her own series. The Aggie Mundeen mystery capers were born. Aggie must have been right: FIT TO BE DEAD is a LEFTY FINALIST 2013 for best humorous mystery, nominated by Left Coast Crime.
