There's a murderer on the loose - but that doesn't stop the girls of St. Etheldreda's from attempting to hide the death of their headmistress in this rollicking farce. The students of St. Etheldreda's School for Girls face a bothersome dilemma. Their irascible headmistress, Mrs. Plackett, and her surly brother, Mr. Godding, have been most inconveniently poisoned at Sunday dinner. Now the school will almost certainly be closed and the girls sent home - unless these seven very proper young ladies can hide the murders and convince their neighbours that nothing is wrong.

About the Author

Julie Berry has never solved a murder or attended boarding school. Her manners are decidedly improper. But she is part of a scandalous sisterhood. She's the youngest of seven children, six of whom are girls, and if they'd ever had a chance to conceal a corpse and run a school, they'd have jumped on it. Today she lives in eastern Massachusetts with her husband and their four sons and two cats.

Reviews

"With a collection of interesting independence-seeking girls, a bit of mystery, and a smattering of romance, this will suit Anglophiles and boarding-school enthusiasts as well as those seeking a bit of sisterly literary companionship." --BCCB"Berry's prose is reminiscent of the dark comedy and melodrama of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "Sherlock Holmes" mysteries . . . This is a well-researched, clever, and deliciously dark comedy with an emphasis on female empowerment." --School Library Journal"Immensely entertaining, smart, and frothy." --The Horn Book..". beautifully written, with rich vocabulary, charming details, spunky dialogue, and plucky heroines . . . delightfully zany." --VOYA"*Romance blooms in unexpected places, and danger lurks around every corner in this delightfully farcical tale, full of twists and turns." --Publisher's Weekly STARRED REVIEW
