A delightful cozy book filled with academic wit and campus humor. Sarah Deane decides to teach English at Miss Merrit's, a boarding school for girls in New England, where she meets an unusual French professor who reigns with terror over all of her students! When a body is found after an academic performance, Sarah becomes embroiled in the midst of many possible suspects from faculty and students. Her husband Alex comes to her aid with his medical expertise, but the mystery goes on until the last few pages! I could not stop until I finished reading this one!!

With ready wit and lethal plot, acclaimed author J. S. Borthwick offers up her tenth irresistible Sarah Deane mystery, a heady brew of academic backstabbing--and murder-- at a bucolic New England girl'd boarding school. Freshly-minted Ph.D. Sarah Deane is hired to teach English at Miss Merritt's, only to land in the epicenter of legendary French professor Grace Carpentier's reign of terror. Mme's passion for excellence has inspired universal fear and loathing. Then Sarah finds a bludgeoned body wearing Mme's trademark cape. But the victim is not Mme. Is it a case of mistaken identity? It's up to Sarah, aided by her husband Alex, to find the killer before he strikes again--while the prime suspects, three fractious students, and three furtive professors, follow her every move...
