Bel is back! In her latest adventure she's climbing the walls to try to find the killer. It was hard to picture fifty-something Bel and her cronies infiltrating the twenty-something Dot.com world, but Ms. Isenberg came up with a humorous solution.
I loved this book on many levels. On the surface it is a great comfort read full of warmth and humor. Next, it educates the reader on a variety of subjects. And finally like any good tale, there's a wonderful moral to the story.
Isenberg gets better with every book. Don't miss this one.

If you've been nervous about flying, here's what I recommend: buy a copy of Jane Isenberg's new mystery "Midlife Can be Murder," start reading when you fasten your seat belt, and look up when you come to the end. You've landed. This was the extremely pleasant way I spent my last plane trip.
As Isenberg fans already know, Bel Barrett, our sleuth, is very witty. In addition, embedded in this mystery are entertaining riffs, including one on a Biblical story I'm sure you will never see the same way again, and another on the rise and fall of the Dot Com lifestyle (you'll have to read the book to catch my pun.)
Underlying the fun and suspense in all Isenberg books is some serious social commentary. Bel's struggling students (in her other life Bel is a Professor of English at a local Community College) are always an important part of the plot, as are her adult children. I found all their adventures touching and very real.

Jane Isenberg's Bel Barrett mysteries provide what we dedicated mystery readers want: a protagonist, as real and recognizable as a good friend, who puts her extensive life experiences to good use in solving a murder; an intricate but not contrived plot; witty dialogue that moves the story and illuminates the characters; and just enough information about unfamiliar subjects to whet our interest and keep us coming back for more. In "Midlife Can Be Murder", Bel and company deliver once again. Though e-commerce may be dominated by techno-30-somethings, Bel and her friends use their hard-earned 50-something savvy to uncover greed and uncontrolled ambition as roots of murder. Along the way, Bel attempts to make up for a past wrong, balance professional obligations with personal needs, support a friend, manage menopausal symptoms, and grow spiritually--all at the same time. I found this book to be wryly humorous and often moving, as only stories grounded in reality can be. But it is also a solid, stylish and well-written mystery, one that can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. I hope Ms. Isenberg has more Bel Barrett stories coming soon. Her growing number of fans will be waiting eagerly!
