Dead Week (A Cassandra Sato Mystery)
by Kelly Brakenhoff

I enjoyed the story, which was a solid puzzle . . . I also appreciate the continuing concern with deaf rights and advocacy. The author’s sympathies are clear and well-presented.
~The Ninja Librarian

Ms. Brakenhoff gives readers a wonderfully detailed story featuring characters that are rich and unique.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

I did enjoy the mystery and totally fell for the red herrings. It’s a nice breath of fresh air . . . Perfect for cozy mystery fans, obviously, and those looking for something new in the genre especially.
~The Layaway Dragon

This is a different kind of cozy and I found it quite enjoyable . . . Brakenhoff has done a wonderful job of conveying the culture shock of a move to the midwest. I could instantly relate, though my own move was only from So. California.
~I Read What You Write

Kelly Brakenhoff has done it again, another brilliant book that keeps you guessing until the end!
~A Wytch’s Book Review Blog

Brakenhoff’s second installment in the Cassandra Sato mystery series is a welcome return to the college community she introduced readers to in Death by Dissertation.
~Book Club Librarian

Cassandra is a strong character, and she’s finding her way in her “new” life in Nebraska . . . I think you mystery fans will enjoy figuring out whodunnit (and why!) along with Cassandra in Dead Week.
~Christy’s Cozy Corners

It is very unusual to find good stories, if any, about Deaf culture. I could identify with many of the issues surrounding this group as I too am deaf. Because of that, I could not put the book down but even more so, the author wrote a good mystery!

A student’s injury and a deaf advocacy project brings national media attention to underfunded Morton College.
