    1. I so wanted to give this book a higher score because it kept my interest reading it but there's so very much wrong with it. To start with, when I read a book I become immersed in the life of the heroine. In this case I could not because Linnet was so poorly and scantily characterized. The only thing I know about her is that she had far too many fears and that she was right in wondering if she should be a teacher. At age 24 or 26, whatever, she should have had several years experience in teaching [...]

    2. Linnet Shellwin moves into a Victorian House known as the Valentine Villa-it is as pink and lacy as Valentine card. She teaches English in the town's middle school—but not very well. She has little control over her students. Then some members of her ‘out-of-control’ ninth-grade class plan to kill her and at home a disconnected phone in the house begins to ring. Linnet learns that the house's previous owner was murdered in the house in the past year, not decades ago as she had believed. Lin [...]

    3. This is the second book I've read from my cousin, Dorothy Bodoin, and like it much better than the first I read, Snowhedge. It hits more close to home because the main character is a teacher like myself. Very suspenseful and true to life. She captures the realism of a middle school teacher having to deal with one of her most disruptive classes and dealing with her co-workers and parents as well, adding a supernatural twist as well as romance. This is a wonderful read!

    4. I liked this book Bodoin. It is a light mystery and one that is easy to read and enjoy. There are a couple of mysterious events that I will not elaborate which spice up the story. Fans of light, fast paced mysteries will certainly enjoy this one.J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the Isms" "Wesley's Wars" and "To Whom It May Concern"

    5. This kept me reading. The killer was a surprise which is good. But to me, the plot meandered with too many seemingly relevant clues leading the wrong way and too few clues leading to the ultimate solution. I do like to see that skillful plotting that seems inevitible only after the final curtain.

    6. Ugh, no. Sorry. I was so confused, and even in the end I didn't understand who killed who and why. I wanted to like this book. I really did.
