Philly Prep English teacher is always fun and never more so than when messing about in the affairs of Philadelphia's posh Main Line society. And what could be more fun than a group who believe "reading pollutes the mind" picketing a champagne gala attended by Philly's ultra-rich on behalf of the library at Amanda's school?
Something isn't quite right with Philadelphia bluebloods Neddy and Tea Roederer, benefactors of the Philadelphia Prep School library. Philly Prep teacher and amateur sleuth Amanda Pepper sees the first signs in the Roederers' son's glum manner. Then a more urgent problem appears: the crusade of the Reverend Harvey Spiers' book-burning Moral Ecologists--the same Reverend Spiers whose stepson, Jake, is best friends with the Roederers' son. As Amanda talks with both boys, she realizes there are much deeper problems, and when the crusading Reverend Spiers is murdered, she knows things have spun out of control. Amanda finds no shortage of suspects: Spiers' Moral Ecologist rival and erstwhile lover, his hysterical wife, his hulking stepson, even Neddy and Tea.
Cute mystery. First Amanda Pepper series I've read, will be sure to check out others in the series. I absolutely loved the last line of the book! You have to read it to see why!!
