Emma and her best friend, Leslie, are desperate to solve this murder. But suspects abound. The perpetrator could be a teacher, an administrator, a member of Kisten’s zealous church community, or even another student. 

Emma must juggle her teaching responsibilities, her new romance with handsome Hunter Wells, and interest from a hunky second suitor, all while searching for evidence to bring a killer to justice before someone else dies.

Poison by Punctuation (Chalkboard Outlines Book 2)Quirky and a little crazy, this cozy mystery will keep readers on their toes as murder hits close to home in the hallowed halls of education. High school teacher Emma Lovett and her best friend, Leslie are determined to find justice for cheerleader, Kristen Hollis. Will they be putting themselves in the cross hairs of danger?

How can they find a murderer when the murder weapon is far from normal? The plot thickens as the list of suspects grows. Was it the new teacher? The zealot preacher? A student isn’t out of the question, either, but the method for murder is like a snake in the grass, well-hidden and very deadly.

POISON BY PUNCTUATION by Kelley Kaye pits a fledgling teacher, her Shakespeare quoting friend, their insatiable curiosity and dogged termination against the unknown as suspects are eliminated in this venomous tale of death and detective work.

Rapid-fire dialogue, uncanny luck and a little science make this tale an entertaining take on who-dunnits as Emma and Leslie are once again up to their chalkboards in solving the murder equation before the victim count rises. Can they balance the scales of justice by following the clues or will their journey lead them straight to the principal’s office for detention and a time out?

Kelley Kaye’s style is light, filled with some fabulous twists and hidden turns that will make a mystery lover take notice!

I received a complimentary ARC edition from Red Adept and Kelley Kaye!
