Struggling with her job, night classes, and the responsibilities of single parenthood, sometime sleuth Lucy Stone investigates the bombing of the local elementary school, which has resulted in a death and the implication of a teacher

Blackwell North Amer
Fall has come to the peaceful Maine town of Tinker's Cove, and amidst all the seasonal glory appears the most beautiful sight of all: the yellow school bus. As parents rejoice and kids grumble, it's back to school time, and for mother-of-four Lucy Stone, it isn't a moment too soon.
Requested by her twelve-year-old daughter to "get a life", Lucy has done just that: she has a job at the local paper and is taking a night class in Victorian English Literature. As if juggling family, job, and school wasn't enough, the sometime sleuth now has another mystery to solve. And it starts with a bang.
A bomb goes off with the noon lunch bell at the local elementary school, but not before all the kids are safely evacuated and Carol Crane, the new assistant principal, is hailed as a hero. By the time the smoke clears, the fallout has resulted in murder.
Everyone is stunned when the most popular teacher at school is arrested for the crime. But not everyone is buying the open-and-shut case, including Lucy Stone, who senses there's more to things than meets the eye. Especially when she discovers that her sexy English professor - who could pose a dangerous temptation to a happily married woman - may know more about the murder than he's telling.
It soon becomes clear that Lucy is flirting with danger in more ways than one, as sizzling secrets and explosive surprises provide a primer for the most diabolical of motives. Hot on the trail of a clever killer, this seasoned mother of four must harness the courage and cool aplomb necessary to get to the bottom of a crime that could be repeated - and just might give Lucy an education on the fine art of murder.
