This one just seemed forced to me. I enjoyed the characters and the plot, but I think it was the setting that just seemed wrong.

Tressa is taking college classes to get ahead in her career. Her cousin, Frankie, is also taking classes but to try to get into law enforcement. They notice that every time one of Frankie's profs talks about a crime in class that same crime is committed on campus that night. Coincidence? Tressa doesn't think so. Full of hijinks and fun, but still not as good as the other three. ( )

Book description
What does a blonde get on her intelligence test?

Drool.

Ace cub reporter Tressa Jayne Turner is carrying a full load--and we're not talking post-holiday pounds. Back in college for the fourth time (but who's counting!?), "Calamity Jayne" is looking to nab a raise from her stingy boss at the Gazette, Stan. So, what's to stop her from making the grade?

Well, for starters her grandmother turned roommate rekindling an old flame, maid of honor madness run amok, a botched betrothal that's more than just schoolyard gossip, and a campus criminal who is out to teach the student body a lesson... one crime at a time. As Tressa navigates the halls of higher education, she finds herself torn not only between homework and investigating, but also between a man who likes her for herself and another man who wants to save her from herself.

It's a case of murder and mayhem by the books...and failure is so not an option.
