Emma Lovett leaves her philandering husband and crosses the country to begin her teaching career at a high school in Pinewood, Colorado.There, she meets Leslie Parker, a fellow teacher given to quoting Shakespeare to fit all situations, and the two become fast friends.

Arriving at work early one morning, Emma discovers the body of the school custodian, a man who reminds her of her late father. When the police struggle to find the killer, the ladies decide to help solve the murder. Their efforts lead them to a myriad of suspects: the schizophrenic librarian, the crude football coach, the mysterious social studies teacher, and even Emma’s new love interest.

As Emma Lovett discovers the perils of teaching high school, she and Leslie learn more than they ever wanted to know about the reasons people kill.



Hey! Here's my review.

A fun cozy mystery set in a school.

I work in a school, so I was intrigued to read a book dealing with the dynamics between teaching staff. I'm glad my school isn't quite like this one. 

I was glad to see the author explained why they didn't leave all the investigation to the Police, considering there was a murder. I don't think I would have gotten as involved as they did, but I enjoyed peeking over their shoulders to see it all play out. 

I loved the friendship between Emma and Leslie. I related most to Emma and Leslie kept me entertained with her relevant Shakespeare quotes.

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
