The Case of the Clobbered Cad (Nosy Parkers Mysteries)
by Debra E. Marvin

Set in the days when every young girl dreamed of following in Nancy Drew’s shadow, with the added attraction of men in kilts and a delectable Scottish brogue, this exciting mystery will sweep you off your feet.
~Laura’s Interests

The writing is strong, and the characters well-developed. The balance of romance vs. mystery is about right for my tastes (i.e., almost all mystery with just a bit of romance). Ms. Marvin seems like an author to watch.
~The Ninja Librarian

The Case of the Clobbered Cad is just the right amount of campy with a dash of romance, a bit of Scottish brogue, and a delightful landlady who really needs her own series ?
~Reading is my SuperPower

I loved this well-crafted story so much – and what a great title!
~The Power of Words

The reader along with Heather has plenty of suspects to consider. Unlike the local authorities who want to focus on Heather.
~My Reading Journeys

I liked that it was set in Scotland and that it had a strong female lead.
~A. Holland Reads

The writing really hooks the reader, the descriptions hit just the right touch, and the story moves at a pace that makes it really hard to put it down.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews

I love the detailed descriptions of the setting — Edinburgh, Scotland and its environs. The well-written plot made me feel like I was really there.

Inspired by the famous Girl Detective, the members of the Olentangy Heights Girls’ Detective Society, affectionately known as the Nosy Parkers, spent their formative years studying criminology, codes, and capers. Unfortunately, opportunities to put their unique skills to work were thin on the ground in the post-war boom of their little corner of suburbia and they eventually grew up to pursue more sensible careers. Until…

Heather Munro’s youthful devotion to The Girl Detective led to a passion for digging around in history. Now pursuing her Master’s Degree in Celtic Studies, Heather must balance exploring Edinburgh with her determination to excel in her all–male classes at the University. Unfortunately, on her first night working in the Archives room, she discovers the dead body of a visiting professor, the same would-be lothario she’d hoped never to see again.

As clues come to light, it’s clear someone hopes to frame Heather for the murder. Besides her quirky landlady, whom can she trust? How can she clear her name? The police and the American Consul have plenty of suspects, but only two seem to have both motive and opportunity: Heather and the quiet Scottish historian she longs to trust.
