Description

Divorced from a philandering con man, downsized as a talk radio producer, and desperate for funds, Barbara Reed learns what real stress is when she signs on as a high school substitute teacher and discovers history teacher Henry Stoddard strangled with his own outdated tie. Stoddard allegedly was blackmailing administrators including the one who, after a frantic search of Stoddard’s room, accuses Barb of stealing his shake-down material, then assigns her to cover the dead man’s classes. Staggered by daily load of grading and lesson planning, Barb finds no relief at home—her domineering sister drops by, her ex moves in with a neighbor, and that neighbor shoves Barb and her ten-pound dog Cheese Puff into an icy river. When Barb finds a second body, the noose of circumstantial evidence tightens. With only the showgirl widow of a reputed mobster, a dumpster-diving derelict, and Cheese Puff Care and Comfort Committee to help, she sets out to find justice her own way.

Holiday Closing Alert! Memorial Day, 2020

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever,  we're going to be closed for Memorial Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Monday May 23rd-25th,  2020.

I know what you're thinking--what???  The whole country's been closed down for two months!  Whaddya mean, you're taking off?  Well, we haven't been closed.  We've been here working harder than ever, due to a wildly increased demand for our services, so honestly, the Crew and I desperately need these days away.  No telephone calls or emails will be answered.  The admin office needs a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, May 26th, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  And please, don't forget why we honor Memorial Day.  We should never--never--forget The Fallen.  

For those of you already in production, the production crew is running full steam; Judith (QA--Quality assurance, our Princess of Perfection) and Jay (Our Doyenne of Customer Delight) will be here and working, checking books and sending them out, so please, don't worry.  It's just we lazybones in the admin office that need a break!
