Aug 26, Diana Hockley rated it really liked it. Whilst I thoroughly enjoy fast-paced mysteries, sometimes I miss vital bits because of the "helter-skelter" style of writing!
Teddy is a delightful character - I hope the author is writing another mystery for her - with an academic and inquiring mind. Her growing attraction and deepening feelings for Derek are well presented and believable, and her penchant for passing on information to the police is a refreshing change from the myriad heroines who keep what they know to themselves, make the police look stupid and then get into peril because of their, "I can do it all myself" mantra.
The use of classical literature to drop hints at the beginning of each chapter is an interesting move, and not having read A Doll's House, I am now inspired to do so! Excerpts from The Tempest et al, are also used to illustrate the victim's intelligence - which ultimately becomes her downfall. All in all, I really enjoyed this novel, and would like to read more of this heroine's exploits. Jun 23, Rayna rated it really liked it. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I wasn't sure I would since it was one I got for free on Amazon, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The protagonist was very relatable, and I found myself rooting for her.
It's a good mystery that keeps you guessing until the end. I feel like this story could have easily been a plot line for a Law and Order: SVU episode, which may have been why I enjoyed it so much! Like many other reviewers, I also enjoyed the numerous literature references. I thought this was I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I thought this was a smart, well planned out, enjoyable read.

This book came to me serendipitously! Actually I was looking for another Julia Buckley, a lovely ghost from my past, when I found Julia and her book. The story kept me captivated. It was fiction, yet her references to women's rights, misogyny and gender issues were insightful. She framed the book with classical literature so I continued to run into to almost forgotten friends, adding depth, creative perspectives and delight. The 'ghosts' were essence and not of the haunting variety so don't expe This book came to me serendipitously!
The 'ghosts' were essence and not of the haunting variety so don't expect grave yard romps! It is one of those books that you won't want to put down once you begin. Jul 12, Cindy rated it it was amazing. A riveting mystery set in a Catholic high school, with dollops of fascinating literary analysis and some sweet romance. Teddy Thurber, English teacher, solves the murder of one of her former students with the help of Ibsen's A Doll's House and Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, but don't mistake this novel for homework; Julia Buckley's third book is a fun, funny and entertaining read.
