My Review

This was a fun cosy mystery set in a high school in Colorado in the U.S.

I really liked Emma Lovett the main character and her new bestie Leslie, both English teachers at the school. I loved the way their friendship grew and how they bounced ideas off each other, related to teaching and solving the murder .

The mystery was good, I didn’t guess who the murderer was, although I did have quite a few main suspects.

I’d love to see how this series develops and what Emma and Leslie get up to next.


Thanks so much to Books Sirens and the author for my digital copy.
