    7. I liked this book well enough to assign it three stars and found it interesting but I cannot put it into that category of books which makes me want to shut out the world so I can keep reading. This is the second book in the series but I had no problem picking up all the carry-over characters from the first novel and the part they play in the world of Dr. Meredith "Red" Solaris, interim Dean of the School of Journalism at Mountain West University in Landry, Nevada. Dr. Solaris is constantly encou [...]

And as this book [...]

    9. I read The Red Queen's Run last year and enjoyed it. When the Dean of Journalism was found dead in the first, Meredith "Red" Solaris was appointed interim dean. In The Rise of the Red Queen, Red is in the running for the job permanently, but the competition is stiff. If the well-qualified competition isn't enough, a journalism student is reported missing, and it isn't initially clear whether or not the young woman has simply taken a few days away without notifying in anyoneor something much wors [...]

    10. No fire in the bellyDr Meredith (Red) Solaris is interim Dean of the School of Journalism at Mountain West University near Reno. She has a detective boyfriend which is useful when faced with the mystery disappearance of one of her students. This book is the sequel to The Red Queen’s Run. It would have been useful to have read them in order but not essential. There are references to the first novel in the second but it doesn’t detract from any enjoyment if this one is read first.There are sev [...]

    11. An American Cozy, set in Nevada and featuring Red Solaris, a professor of Journalism, currently acting as dean of the Journalism school at her college. Red is smart and in a powerful position, though a touch callous, in a no-nonsense, professional way. She also enjoys banal humor. To be fair, there is a lot on her plate, with faculty politics, malevolent fellow professors, a stressful job application process, and a burgeoning romance. The book is written from two main points of view, which alter [...]

    12. Rise of the Red Queen turns the widely assumed image of the quiet, dull life of an academic on its head. After the events of the previous year, when the dean of the journalism school where Meredith "Red" Solaris works was murdered, she clawed her way out of a swamp of trouble. But now it seems that her troubles may just be beginning.Red is one of three finalists in the search for a permanent new dean of the journalism school. But her interviews with the search committee members are punctuated by [...]

    13. This was the second book in this series that I've read and I found that I enjoyed this a little better than the other one. I've got to know Red and I really like her a lot. She's a strong character with good ethics and principals. I like how she will not stand down on her opinions.In this one, she is being considered as head dean for the journalism school having been put in as interim dean after all that happened in the first book. There's still troubles brewing at the university as a young girl [...]

    14. The Rise of the Red Queen is the second book in the Red Solaris mystery series. It is a nicely written and professionally edited full length novel.Red has been through fire as the acting dean of the journalism school and is hoping for a period of peace. Unfortunately, that peace is broken when one of her students disappears and has possibly been abducted. Red and her police detective boyfriend, Joe, investigate the disappearance, but Red finds herself being tied up with university politics.While [...]

    15. Reasonable second entry in the series - I liked continuing to learn about the main characters, and the secondary characters that carried over from the first book. I also like the University setting, and the politics therein. I wasn't enthralled with the secondary narrative which was from the point of view of a kidnapped student (no spoiler - you know this right off the bat) - just did not find that compelling - there was no feeling of fear or despair in her narration. As I recently mentioned in [...]

    16. I have never read anything by Ms. Morris, but I'm very glad I did. I loved The Rise of The Red Queen. Just the right amount of thrills and chills and laughter. The characters are down to earth, very likable and easy to relate to. I will start following Ms. Morris closer and read her books.FTC Full Disclosure - A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

    17. Couldn't Hold My Interest A retired cop named Wyatt went to a college professor of journalism, called Red, and told her his granddaughter was missing. Red was seeing a detective named Joe and all three tried to proceed to try to find her.I read over 1/3 of the book and it just couldn't keep me interested. It just seemed to ramble on.**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review

    18. 3 1/2 starsAcademic cozy set in a small college in northern Nevada near Reno. The protagonist is Red Solaris, a journalism professor whose love interest is the local homicide detective. While Red waits to hear if she will permanently be appointed dean of the journalism school, a young student goes missing. Very readable series.

    19. Weaker than the first one, and rather predicable; could have been tightened up (fair bit of slow and repetitious parts) or else expanded (add detail, add drama, add character, etc.), and pretty implausible in too many parts. Still, it was an amusing enough summer book.

    20. “With The Rise of the Red Queen, Bourne Morris is poised to become the queen of academic mysteries and suspense.” – Gigi Pandian, USA Today Bestselling Author of The Ninja's Illusion

    21. Another great read. (Also love that the author gave a little shout out to one of her Westover classmates - and a woman I happen to know! - in her acknowledgements.)
