After eight months of teaching five-year-olds, kindergarten teacher Liza Wilcox is more than ready for spring break. Try as she might, her frustrating computer refuses to display the correct date. While investigating the date on the internet, the face of a kidnapped child, Jessie McGowan, reminds her of an unresolved trauma in her own life. Would searching for Jessie help heal the hurt and sense of loss Liza feels? Liza reviews the news reports on Jessie's kidnapping. She packs up her dog, Shelby, and spends her break investigating the kidnapping. In Gainsville she meets Sheriff Tom Owens. Liza feels an instant physical attraction to him. Nevertheless, she ignores his warnings and delves further into the kidnapping. As she explores the crime, she encounters a bizarre, mysterious clown school that specializes in mind-control, drugs, and pornography. There is nothing funny about these clowns when Liza's investigation begins to turn deadly.
What would have made Death Is Clowning Around better?
If the story didn't consistently have to tell you the woman was a teacher. Honestly, how often did she say "I'm a teacher" I was about to trash the book do many times as she got on my nerves! Didn't the author figure the WE could retain that information after two chapters of "I'm a teacher" and it ended the same way aaarrrggghhh!
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Made her something but a teacher, I guess if she was a bank teller she would have made us sick of that
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cathryn Lyons?
I don't think the narration was the problem, but it sounded like she was talking into a tin can, worst audio I've heard to date
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
It finally ended
Any additional comments?
The a audio was horrendous
