    • Like I said in my review of the first four books, even though this series isn't really that well written - something about them is compulsively readable anyway! The characters and their crazy shenanigans really are addicting, and I enjoyed reading the books. Usually character contradictions and the telling of emotions versus the showing and feeling of them are both big deal breakers - but somehow I keep forgiving Maggie Barbieri for her shortcomings as long as she keeps coming through and making [...]


    • This is one of my favorite cozy series and this installment was another solid read. I will note that this was the first book in the series that I listened to on audiobook and I was not a huge fan or the narrator. She did an ok job but did not really add anything to the story.


    • Allison witnesses a murder at her favorite coffee shop, and she can't decide whether or not to marry Crawford, and Father Kevin disappears, and blah blah blah. The zing of the first book in this series is no longer apparent.


    • Do you know someone who is a magnet for mayhem?? Yeah, me too!This is a good, cute, funny mystery whose main character is just that magnet. And it is all done so well.Please read if you like to smile.


    • I have read the entire series so far (And plan to continue reading the rest) and as much as I like the series there are things that I could do without. These are all matter of opinion, so take them with a grain of salt.Do I recommend this? Yes. The series is good,Am I passionate about the characters? Apparently!1) Alison continually lies to Crawford. She promises him she won't meddle, then as soon as they part she meddles, and then gets upset that Crawford is mad at her. He knows she's going to [...]


    • As an atheist I felt there was too much mention of religion, and the main character came off as very narcissistic. I also felt that the author paid too much attention to appearances and the size of various body parts. Either the author is extremely shallow or she just writes her characters like that. It was like I was reading a book written by a male, and I generally try to avoid books like that. The women who were "ideal" in the body department were put on pedestals and glorified no matter what [...]


    • Third DegreeBy: Maggie BarbieriPublisher by Minotaur BooksCopyright December 2010No matter where Alison Bergeron goes she just seems to get into trouble. Stopping off one morning for coffee at Beans, Beans should have been simple and quick. So why did she end up with a black eye and a dead body on the floor next to her? Just what she needs when she’s supposed to be meeting her boyfriend’s parents for the first time. Carter Willmott (the dead man) is not a very well liked person in her town. [...]


    • This is the first book of Maggie Barbeiri that I've read. The main character Alison is a pistol, as periodically she gives an understated fact about herself followed by a comment like, "in case you didn't know" drawing the reader into her walk. It begins when an unpopular restaurant critic blogger is murdered in a coffee shop he frequents regularly, but speaks terribly about, as is the case with the majority of his reviews. The main character Alison is hurt (black eye) from a fight between him a [...]


    • I enjoyed this book. The writing was quick and fast paced with new and old familiar characters.The plot was interesting and I bought the "who dunnit" at the end.Alison spends a lot of her time pondering about whether she should married Crawford or not. This comes at a hard time of year for her, the month her mother had died a few years ago.I'm not a fan of her friend, Max, who wasn't in this book all that much. Yay! A few times Crawford asked Alison why they are friends and she said it's because [...]


    • I just love Maggie Barbieri, both as a friend and a writer. Her wacky sense of humor is one I share, which is why it's always fun to read another of her Alison Bergeron Mysteries. I am happy to say that Maggie's latest, THIRD DEGREE, does not disappoint. In it, a much despised blogger named Carter Wilmott is apparently killed in an altercation with another man. Alison, who has a nose for trouble, is at the coffee shop when the fight occurs and ends up with a black eye as a result (she gets the d [...]


    • My four-sentence or less take on the plot: Ally is a professor at a Catholic University and is very much in the style of Stephanie Plum--which I mean as a huge compliment. The books are all charming and fun and I totally recommend them (all of them--this is a review for the entire series!) *this is the same as I reviewed her first book but the plot line is similar, in the Evanovich style*Rating: 10What worked: Everything. I had no idea where this book was going to go and was extremely happy abou [...]


    • Allison Bergeron has seen dead bodies before, but when a brawl in a local coffee shop ends with a death it shakes her. People related to the dead man keep showing up in her life. And as if that weren't enough, Allison is supposed to commit to the ring-pop proposal from Crawford. Has a girl to keep up?I found "Third Degree" entertaining as usual. It is my least favorite of the Murder 101 series, if only for the fact that the main characters by now have become predictable. I found the addition of [...]


    • In Barbieri’s mystery novel, college professor Alison Bergeron is on the threshold of meeting her detective boyfriend’s parents and caffeine is suddenly her best preparation option. Arriving at the local coffee bar, Alison walks in on a brawl between blogger Carter Wilmott and resident George Miller who takes a fatal blow. Boasting a shiner, Alison feels the situation is pretty explanatory until Wilmott’s car explodes outside the coffee house. Before long, secrets, revenge and deadly inten [...]


    • The fifth in Maggie Barbieri's series about college professor Alison Bergeron and her boyfriend, Detective Bobby Crawford. This story opens with Alison going to the local coffee shop, where she gets in the middle of an altercation between a city employee and a blogger/restaurant reviewer. Alison ends up with a black eye while the blogger/reviewer dies. Add to that a sprained wrist, a proposal from Bobby, which she avoids, her friend, Father McManus, missing and a Hooters waitress/private investi [...]


    • In real life, I would be totally exasperated at Alison's antics in pursuit of the truth. However, in following the story of her exploits, I thoroughly enjoy her sleuthing/crazy exploits in the novel. She is a unique character to say the least, as are her fellow characters. Another job well done by Maggie Barbieri. I always enjoy Alison, Crawford, Max and Trixie, as well as the fascinating minor charc ters introduced in the murder 101 series. In addition to the personalities involved, I enjoyed t [...]


    • I'm really in love with this series because it is fast-paced and features a smart heroine! I was eager to catch up with Alison Bergeron because of where the previous book left off--to see where she would end up next. This book left me satisfied though I missed some of the side characters who featured prominently in the other titles. I also missed the campus trials and tribulations! But catching up with Alison, Max and Crawford are my favorite parts about reading this series--and why I'm slowly c [...]


    • No Jimmy! I was so looking forward to a smart ass remark from him!No Max and Fred! YAY! They don't do anything for me. I hope Alison painted her room back to the way it was before the evil pixie changed it. I curious about Fred and what happened to him, but I've learned not to get my hopes up when it comes to side characters. This is a fun series to read. Alison and Bobby are funny together. I'm looking forward to the next book!


    • This book was pretty darned awesome. Another great plot -- starting with someone dropping dead at a coffee shop, right in front of Alison and going all the way through to the end. The special guest appearances by Max's reality show stars were priceless as well. I am beyond sad that there are only 2 more books left in this series but, at this point, need to see what happens next. Now. Oh library.


    • I enjoyed every single page of this quick-paced, humorous murder mystery. It never went the way you expected and I simply adore the characters.Although it had been awhile since I read the previous book in the series, "Final Exam", however it took only one half page for me to be comfortably back in the 'Village' with Alison and Bobby, Max and Fred, and of course, Trixie.I loved the ending as well. Long live this series.


    • Alison is involved in a murder by accident: She is hit in the eye by a door as two men come barreling out of a coffee shop fighting. One of the men dies a few minutes later. Someone had also wired his car with a bomb. He was also being poisoned with arsenic. Did he die from a blow to the head in the fight, or did the arsenic catch up with him? Alison tries to find the answers while also trying to decide whether to accept her boyfriend's proposal or not.


    • Alison Bergeron isn't thinking about bodies when she stops in a coffee shop to get some caffeine resolve before meeting her fiance's parents. Maybe she should have been braver, because just as she enters the shop, two men break into a fight, Alison gets a black eye, and one of the men collapses and dies. Things go from bad to worse before this case is resolved. "Third" is the fifth in the series, and one of the best.


    • This doesn't seem to be a very focused book. The writer was everywhere but with the mystery -- probably because the mystery wasn't very interesting and the reasons given for people's actions didn't make a whole lot of sense. Also, for someone who constantly reminds us she doesn't lie, the narrator is quite deceitful.


    • This book was the fifth in the 'Murder 101' series. The story had an ok mystery, quirky characters with a little humor and romance thrown in for good measure. I thought the mystery itself was a little weird and the motivation for the sleuth to get involved a bit forced, and the solution itself seemed a little convoluted. Overall, a decent entry to the series.


    • Entertainment at it's bestMaggie Barbieri is now my favorite mystery writerwell next to Sue Grafton that is. I identify so much with the protagonist, Alison, as I too am a klutz. You can't help but love her! And the story in this book, though contrived, keeps moving along engaging the reader. Very enjoyable indeed.


    • This series is a fun cozy series. They don't have to be read in order. I always look forward to the next one. Takes place in Westchester County NY in areas that are familiar to me; as well as on a college campus. Who knew a Joyce scholar could get into so much trouble. A light fun read.


    • Third Degree is the fifth book in the series Murder 101. Want a great book to read that has a lot of what if's and two murders that follows Professor Alison Bergeron as she try's to figure out " Who Killed carter Wilmott ". And Be surprised at the ending.


    • I came across this while browsing the library. Even though it is the 5th in a series, I didn't feel like I was missing anything. I really enjoyed the humor in this book. Just an easy read, nothing to exclaim over, but I'll definitely read more from this author.


    • Quirky sense of humor. Klutzy Alison. She finds the answers and the secrets and keeps the secrets to herself. This is the first book I have read by this author so I need to check out the other books of the seris.


    • Alison Bergeron is an inquisitive college professor who witnesses a murder at her local coffee shop Beans, Beans. A good mystery with lots of interesting characters as Alison tries to solve the murder and set to rights all the problems in her life, and she has lots of problems.


    • I am tickled to find this author! The character was very likeable and a little quirky. The storyline had just the right amount of pacing and intrigue. Looking forward to reading more from this author!
