The debut of Philly Prep English teacher and accidental sleuth, Amanda Pepper, (and of C.K. Mackenzie, homicide detective) won the World Mystery Convention's "Anthony" for best first mystery.

When the body of a colleague is found dead in Amanda's living room, she has to clear herself of suspicion�and make sure she isn't the next victim as well. And all she's got as a clue to the real killer's identity is a locket shaped like Winnie-the-Pooh.

This book was different from what I usually read as far as mysteries go. It was a tad slow and dry but the main character did have some endearing qualities. The story wasn't very fast paced but there were some laughs and some cute one liners. I wouldn't not recommend it but i'm not sure i'll be rushing to read the next book in the series.

Gillian Roberts paints a great picture of Philadelphia and has created a character in Amanda Pepper that I hope will continue. The budding romance is another relationship I'd love to follow. If you like Gemma Halliday, Joanne Fluke and Janet Evanovich, you will love this new series. I can't wait for the next one.

Amanda Pepper is a thirty-year-old unmarried English teacher at elitist Philadelphia Prep and an amateur detective. She is a very likeable heroine and the book is consistently funny throughout. It is easy to understand why the author received an Anthony Award for best first mystery for this novel.
