Miss Amelia Prentice is a high school English teacher with a passion for grammar. One of her pet peeves is the use of the word "irregardless," a misuse of the word "regardless." But if you think that this is her only passion, you would be mistaken. Miss Prentice is also passionate about the children in her classroom, and perhaps, there is another fire burning somewhere inside her for a long-lost love.

When she stumbles over the body of one of her students, Miss Prentice is determined to find out what happened. When her investigation points toward the possibility of drugs, she begins to look carefully at those around her. Could there be something sinister brewing underneath the surface of the seemingly peaceful town? To make things even a little more confusing, Gil Dickensen, a man that Amelia almost married when she was young, shows up unexpectedly. As her search for the truth heats up, so also does her relationship with Gil.

IRREGARDLESS OF MURDER is filled with fun, fascinating characters, a persnickety old cat, and believe it or not, an illusive monster who makes an appearance from his home in Lake Champlain.

This is an absolutely delightful mystery. It is captivating from front cover to last. Ms. Kennedy will have to keep 'em coming. I'm absolutely stuck on Miss Amelia Prentice!

Highly Recommended
