Here’s my current read:
No End to Trouble (St. Polycarp School Mystery Book 3) by Marianna Heusler
Here is my teaser:
“She wondered if the two teachers would show up. What she knew about them was that they were nervy, so they would probably be there, asking all sorts of crazy questions.” p. 71
Father Felix, Head master and parish priest at St. Polycarp Church and school has been called to serve the Vatican in Rome. Although a great honor for Father Felix, it has less than happy consequences for his loyal teachers and staff at St. Polycarp elementary school.
The new Principal is a Mrs. Logan formerly from St. Judes. She’s a severe, no-nonsense administrator who has a strict code of conduct for the teachers. Sensible shoes, conservative clothes, hair kept up in a ponytail to avoid head-lice and no chocolate.
For Mrs. Hopwood, a flashy dresser, stiletto heel fan and a chocolate lover the news is terrible. She and her fellow teacher, Mrs. Johnson, are filled with dread. To make matters worse, Mrs. Logan is bringing in new teachers, a new secretary—Miss Turnipseed who has a decidedly un-friendly attitude—and new assignments—different grade levels. Horrifying! Mrs. Hopwood is moving from the sweet security of the second grade to the scary prepubescence of the fifth. Dreadful!
The two friends and amateur sleuths—or busy bodies in Father Felix’s opinion—have faced many trials at St. Polycarp—the dreadful murder of a seventh grade teacher before class and a summer school field trip to Sicily with a group of obnoxious girls from St. Hilda’s where the killer who stalked them through the catacombs was almost as scary as their charges. So when a cafeteria lady dies mysteriously during Parents’ night, Mrs. Hopwood and Mrs. Johnson have a dual mission—to find a sadistic murderer without getting fired—or killed.
This book is part of a series but I haven’t read the other books and so far it seems to be just fine as a stand-alone.
Interested in reading them in order? Find book one here.
I’m pairing this book with Sherlock fandom tea to help me solve the mystery 😉
Sussex Downs is one of my new favorite flavors! I love the strawberry flavor it has, super yummy!
