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.
