This was a really interesting quick listen little mystery. It felt like it wasn't the first book in the series. It kept my interest from beginning to ..Show More »end.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Barbara Benjamin-Creel. I can honestly say she does a great job keeping the energy of the character and makes the story move. She has a great feel for Susan, with a nice pace and tone throughout the book.
This story begins with an African-American teacher named Shauna Thompson who teaches English at Hilliard High which is an all white school. She recei..Show More »ves an interesting sort of secret admirer note and an even more interesting present. It wasn't really offensive, just curious and somewhat creepy. She calls on Susan to help her get to the bottom of the mystery.
At the same time there's another plot brewing. Another teacher goes missing after his wife is found dead, lying at the bottom of the basement stairs at the couples home.
I like the way the author ties in two plots together in one story. That was a good idea and it worked. I also like Susan's hubby Swash. He becomes more active in this installment by purchasing a classic car from the internet and getting involved with the car club. Susan's friend Elaine is back and having on and off issues with her beau whose off writing a novel in N.Y.
Overall, this is a good listen and knowing the main players is great. It's as if you're part of the family. As always, Barbara Benjamin-Creel does a wonderful job voicing these very likeable characters. I think anyone would enjoy listening to or reading this series. Its fun and light. Another good one!
