Agatha Award-winning author Joan Hess, the prolific creator of the Claire Malloy and Maggody mysteries, is beloved for her clever sleuths, quirky characters, and her ingenious plotting. We invite you to enjoy this delightful Claire Malloy mystery, and to discover why Sharyn McCrumb calls Joan Hess “the patron saint of comic mystery.” At Farberville High, it’s reading, writing...and murder.Who knows what evil lurks in the halls of Farbervilles’ high school-or what blackmail is hidden in Miss Demeanor’s Falcon Crier advice column? Certainly not bookstore owner and amateur sleuth Claire Malloy-until her daughter Caron persuades her to substitute for disgraced column editor and journalism teacher Emily Parchester. Surely Miss Parchester cannot be guilty of embezzlement. But the petty charges graduate to murder when Principal Weiss gets his last licks from Miss Parchester’s peach compote. Miss Parchester herself, last seen at a local sanitarium, is suddenly missing. And now it’s up to Claire to find someone who’s been schooled in the fine art of murder...

A high school principal and janitor are poisoned with cynanide. The scene is Farberville and Claire Molloy the bookstore owner is the detective. Nobel Prize prose it's not. It's written in an almost old-fashioned style with lots of cliches and weak jokes (as you can see from sample pages on this WEB site) but I think this is deliberate attempt to create the cosy atmosphere (If it really is deliberate then I should have given an extra star). No sex or violence. It's light bland entertainment and the victims' deaths are no tragedy. Clues are placed that should enable you to figure whodunnit. The plot is clever enough and the suspects likely enough to keep you turning the pages. Not quite up to Agatha Christie, but in that style. The only ethnic diversity is that Molloy's policeman boy friend is called Rosen and comes from New York. Some curious anachronisms. There are references to jitterbugging and back street abortions but also to the high school class of 1990 and to the 60's "fifteen years ago" (Roe v Wade was 1973). Suspend critical judgement and relax and enjoy.

Cute, funny, fast moving. It will hold your interest and anyone who has raised teenage girls will chuckle at the insight. Plot twists nicely to keep reader off balance. I recommend it as well as the complete series.

I truly loved this book. Claire, her daughter Caron and boyfriend cop Peter are a fun bunch to read about. And Claire's madcap life does not stop her from doing what she needs to do to solve the crime. Under it all, you can tell she really cares and is a good person. With all of the different twists and turns this book really holds your attention. And it really brings back what it was like to be in high school (yikes)!! Just a very enjoyable book.

Didn't have to work too hard to finish this book, it was a good read, an interesting little book, and not difficult to follow at all. Well written, I must say, and I did enjoy it.

I always enjoy an outing with Claire and Karon. Always makes me laugh.
I thought this book would have been interesting since I am a student currently going into teaching myself. Boy, was I wrong. I'm not sure if it was because this book was written years ago and teaching might have been different, but there were many things that Claire did that would NEVER have been acceptable nowadays in the school system. Also, I'm not sure if this is because this book is one from a long going series, but I felt like the relationships between the characters (especially Claire and Peter Rosen's) was very unrealistic and didn't seem to have much substance. I also felt like there was much detail lacking in the story. I think the story could have been improved if we had more description of what the town is like and how the characters live, etc.
