Overview

Amelia Prentice, a forty-something high school English teacher comfortable in her predictable routine, regains consciousness after tripping over the corpse of a former student in the safest of places, the public library. Returning to the classroom, she tries to pretend nothing happened. But when it becomes obvious that the victim�s death wasn�t an accident and she is now a murder suspect, she realizes that her cozy small-town life in New York�s Adirondack region will never be the same.

Crazy things begin to happen: The victim�s mother disappears. Amelia�s friend Lily is thrown overboard from the Lake Champlain ferryboat. A mysterious millionaire from Montreal seems determined to buy Amelia�s house. The school nurse is viciously attacked by a student. Amelia�s old beau Gil suddenly seems determined to rekindle their romance. Amelia is carjacked, and, of course, there�s the Lake Champlain Monster . . .

It will take all Amelia�s wisdom, humor, and faith to figure out what�s going on and embrace the new life that lies ahead. If she survives . . .

�It�s got everything a great cozy story needs�a charming and sympathetic heroine, a colorful supporting cast . . . a little romance, and, of course, a murder that challenges the reader.� �Sarah Shaber, award-winning author of Louise�s War, Louise�s Gamble,
and the Simon Shaw mysteries.

�Ellen Kennedy�s Amelia Prentice is the perfect amateur detective in this charming cozy. Irregardless of Murder is what cozy mystery is all about!� �Nancy Mehl, author of The Road to Kingdom Series

�Romance, intrigue, twists at every turn . . . who could ask for more? I was hooked from the first page until the last and didn�t want to put it down! I can usually figure out who dunnit, but E. E. Kennedy kept me guessing until the big reveal. Well played, Ms. Kennedy. Well played.� �Donna Earnhardt, author of Being Frank and blogger at wordwranglernc.wordpress.com.

Meet the Author

Ellen Edwards Kennedy (aka EEK) calls herself a �Southern-ized Yankee,� which means she knows how to use �y�all� properly, but never drops her g�s. Born in Alabama, she grew up in Miss Prentice�s region of far northern New York State and lived with her husband and children across the South and West. This has given her a deep love for these areas and a sharp ear for regional accents.

Through high school and college, she performed in summer stock, briefly nursing the vain dream of becoming a Broadway musical star, but eventually made a career as an award-winning TV/radio advertising copywriter. Her recent experiences as a high school substitute teacher make her uniquely qualified to translate obscure adolescent dialects into understandable English.

Along with the Miss Prentice mysteries, she is the author of a Christian romance novella, The Applesauce War (in the anthology Harvest Home from Barbour Books). She lives with her husband near Raleigh, NC.
