Schooled in Murder

The trip to a lakeside resort was to be her fresh start until a suspicious death threatens not only her budding romance but all their lives.

1949. Lake Scugog, Ontario. Reporter Charley Hall has lost a lot — her husband, her dream job, her best friend. Accompanying her new beau to his class reunion at a lakeside resort seems like the perfect opportunity to begin again. But old habits threaten to derail her new relationship after a beloved teacher is found dead behind a locked door. 

Alone in her conviction that the death was far from natural, Charley puts her sleuthing skills to the test and learns the deceased educator was not so well-loved after all. When the group becomes stranded by a late-season ice storm, the pressure’s on to determine whether all that hatred adds up to murder.

Can this single-minded sleuth solve the puzzle or will she get a failing grade, trapping them with a devious killer?

Schooled in Murder is the sixth book in the page-turning Charley Hall historical mystery series. If you like atmospheric backdrops, strong underdog protagonists and unpredictable twists and turns, then you’ll love Brenda Gayle’s compelling whodunit series.
