Publisher's Summary

Emma Lovett leaves her philandering husband and crosses the country to begin her teaching career at a high school in Pinewood, Colorado. There, she meets Leslie Parker, a fellow teacher given to quoting Shakespeare to fit all situations, and the two become fast friends.
Arriving at work early one morning, Emma discovers the body of the school custodian, a man who reminds her of her late father. When the police struggle to find the killer, the ladies decide to help solve the murder. Their efforts lead them to a myriad of suspects: the schizophrenic librarian, the crude football coach, the mysterious social studies teacher, and even Emma's new love interest.
As Emma Lovett discovers the perils of teaching high school, she and Leslie learn more than they ever wanted to know about the reasons people kill.

This is an average cozy mystery with typical characters and a typical plot. It took me a while to finish it. I might get the next book in this series if I don't have anything else to read.

Death by Diploma

Death by Diploma: Chalkboard Outlines, Book 1
: Kelley Kaye

A first book in what will hopefully be a series. As a high school employee. I found the setting and situations were spot on. The teacher who is a "Grammar Nazi," yes every school has at least one. The gourmet teacher meals are a dream come true. I loved the librarian wanting to ban some students for life, yep may have known not really.I would like to see our principal zipping around on a skateboard.

I loved the teachers quest to solve the murder, all the novels mentioned, but could of done without Shakespeare quotes.

I look forward to the next book or books yet to come!
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Angie Hickman makes this listen extra enjoyable.
