I really enjoyed reading Watch Her, the third Hester Thursby mystery. Although it would help to read the first two books, Watch Her functions well as a standalone. Hester, a Harvard librarian, and her detective friend Angela are pulled into a mystery involving a secretive dysfunctional family who own Prescott University, a private for-profit college in Boston. The mystery starts with the investigation of a break and enter, and evolves into the search for missing college students and the decades old puzzle of a drowned child. This book has multiple points of view which add to the tension and the fast pace of the story. There are many unpredictable twists and turns which keep the readers guessing. The characters are complex, flawed, relatable and some learn a lot about themselves as the story progresses. The inclusion of LGBTQ+ characters reflects the real world. I would love to read the first two Hester Thursby mysteries and any others that follow.
