    Fast-paced and a little goofy

    In short: Math teacher Bonnie Pinkwater gets caught in a murder mystery centered around a tornado and a dead vice-principal. Despite being the fourth book in a series, new readers shouldn't have problems jumping in.

    This is a good, solid mystery. I hesitate to call it a cozy, but I suppose it is: an older woman/amateur sleuth solves mysteries in a small town. To me, Bonnie's character always carries out a satisfying rebellion against the educational bureaucracy as embodied by Principal Divine, sometimes getting her licks in, sometimes having to grovel in order to keep her job and to defend her students. I have a soft spot for characters who defend kids without belittling them, and Bonnie hits the spot. Fast-paced, realistic, and a little goofy, a good put-your-feet-up and enjoy-the-small-victories kind of book.

    I love the Bonnie Pinkwater series!

    I highly recommend this series! Ms. Pinkwater really knows how to get herself in trouble and with every new chapter you get another twist that you weren't expecting.
