When the reckless teenaged Rousseau brothers, J.T. and Dustin, attempt to cross a frozen Lake Champlain in their ancient VW, what they find plunges them into hot water, not cold.

Despite a falling out with best friend Lily, parents irate over a low grade, a missing cat, and a strange illness that strikes when least expected, Amelia is determined to find the truth. Unless she is frozen out by an equally determined murderer . . .

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A modern-day bootlegging operation near New York's Canadian border goes awry when a courier is murdered in his ice-fishing tent out on Lake Champlain. His delivery—a lunchbox stuffed with CDs holding counterfeit ID numbers and identities—goes missing. Two local brothers are fingered as prime suspects, but their high school English teacher, Mrs. Davenport (née Miss Amelia Prentice), finds their guilt improbable and is adamant about clearing their names. Meanwhile, a feud with her BFF, Lily; adjusting to being married; a strained relationship with her husband's nephew; and a lose-lose situation with one of her students keep Amelia off-balance. Her sleuthing might have gone unnoticed if her sidekick hadn't spilled the beans. Now the killer may just ice the English teacher, too. VERDICT Christian fiction author Kennedy breezes in with a winning sequel to her first Miss Prentice entry (Irregardless of Murder). While the book's somewhat rushed ending with an unnecessary plot complication seems forced, this fast read is easy to recommend.
Endorsement - Nancy Mehl
“Mystery writer E. E. Kennedy brings back her plucky sleuth, teacher Amelia Prentice, in Death Dangles a Participle. Newly married Amelia is plunged into a mystery involving a frozen body discovered on Lake Champlain, site of the rumored Lake Champlain monster. This time however, the monster is human. Will Amelia discover his identity before it’s too late? Kennedy delights and satisfies lovers of cozy mystery with her newest offering.”
Endorsement - June Felix

“E. E. Kennedy has ‘dunnit’ again! I loved her first book, Irregardless of Murder, and her second book in the Miss Prentice Cozy Mystery Series, Death Dangles a Participle, is another A+! I found with Death Dangles a Participle there came a point of no return and you simply had to read it to the very thrilling conclusion. If you like a heartwarming, humorous, and thoroughly satisfying mystery, you’ll love this story!”
Endorsement - Donna Earnhardt
“E.E. Kennedy has done it again! Death Dangles a Participle is a cozy continuation in the witty and brilliant Miss Prentice Cozy Mystery Series. The characters feel real . . . and make me wish they were flesh and blood. This is a "who-dunnit" with heart—and I can't wait for the next installment."

    I suggest you start with Ms Kennedy's Irregardless of Murder and

    I suggest you start with Ms Kennedy's Irregardless of Murder and get to know Miss Amelia Prentice before reading this engaging
     mystery. After 44 years of teaching I especially liked the ties to a school setting. I also appreciate being able to read
     without the worry of the next eye-jolting four-letter words. Way to go E.E. Kennedy! I'll continue to follow you with this
    series and hope there are many more to follow.

    E.E. Kennedy doesn't disappoint!

    Amelia Prentice is back, now with her old love/new husband Gil and new surprises in store. Family life is not exactly what she expected and some old and new friendships are strained. Meanwhile, two of her students, well-known for stupid stunts, are now suspects in a strange murder committed on the frozen Lake Champlain. Trying to figure out the truth without Lily and Vernon's help, Amelia is convinced her students are innocent. She is somewhat handicapped by her physical condition but perseveres with Alec's help this time. I enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more about Amelia's attempts at detection in a small town, as well as what the other characters will be up to.

    E. E. Kennedy in her new book, ¿Death Dangles A Participle¿ Book

    E. E. Kennedy in her new book, “Death Dangles A Participle” Book Two in the Miss Prentice Cozy Mystery series published by Sheaf House Publishers gives us another adventure with Amelia Prentice.




    From the back cover:  Winter can be harsh in the North Country.




    When the reckless teenaged Rousseau brothers, J.T. and Dustin, attempt to cross a frozen Lake Champlain in their ancient VW, what they find plunges them into hot water, not cold. Their guilt in a brutal murder is obvious to everyone except English teacher Amelia Prentice Dickensen, freshly returned from her honeymoon with new husband Gil, who is determined to find the clue that will prove them innocent: a single bullet.




    Despite a falling out with best friend Lily, parents irate over a low grade, a missing cat, and a strange illness that strikes when least expected, Amelia is determined to find the truth. Unless she is frozen out by an equally determined murderer . . .




    Amelia Prentice is back with another classic mystery. It all begins with a let’s blow off steam drive across frozen Lake Champlain. Someone is shooting at the brothers and then that person winds up shot and the brothers are blamed. Now we know who didn’t do it but who did? At the same time we have to deal with a problem with Lily, conflict with nephew Vern and all kinds of goings on over at the Chez Prentice. This is what makes Ms. Kennedy’s stories so much fun. There is so much more going on that just the investigation of the murder and finding out the identity of the killer. We get involved in the lives of the people of the town and we just enjoy ourselves while we are there.




    Ms. Kennedy has crafted a page turner worthy of the old masters, an exciting event, some story, another exciting event, more story.  And the mystery is terrific.  You want to figure out who us behind everything but you just can’t seem to and so you flip another page hoping for an answer which doesn’t come until the satisfactory end.  E. E. Kennedy is a fun author that makes reading enjoyable even if you are sitting on the edge of your chair. Don’t bother bringing a beverage to drink while you read because you will forget it is there the story is that intense.  Ms. Kennedy batted a thousand on this one.  I highly recommend it.
