I really enjoyed this one. It's the first of the Amanda Pepper series about a funny and smart Philadelphia schoolteacher. Not that many mysteries actually make me laugh, but this is one. The characters have some depth, and I especially enjoyed the Philadelphia/Ardmore setting after having a relative living there for a few years.
First book in series
very well written, looking forward to the rest of series.
Returning home from school, Amanda finds a friend has been murdered in her living room. Always in the right place at the right time (later, she happens upon a second body in much the same way), Amanda is up to the task, and ultimately solves the mystery with a few clever deductions. She also conveniently solves the problem of her personal life by falling in love with a charming detective with a Southern accent and a solid background in English Lit, who has been assigned to the case.
First in the series of Philadelphia teacher Amanda Pepper's adventures.
