While I still remain a fan of Jill Churchill and her Jane Jeffry series, this book was a slight disappointment compared to her first two. This mystery revolves around Jane and her classmates in a week-long seminar she takes with her mother and sidekick/neighbor, Shelley. Naturally Jane gets involved when someone bumps off Mrs. Pryce, the crotchety old lady from class. Obviously it's one of the classmates, but who?
Like the old saying, "too many cooks spoil the broth?" Well in this case I believe too many suspects spoiled the mystery! So while it didn't keep me from finishing the story (and guessing who did it before the end) it was a little too "busy." However, Churchill's writing style and flair for humor never cease, and for that reason it was worth reading.

Jane Jeffry decides to beat summer boredom by enrolling in an autobiography class together with her mother. Her boredom quickly ends when the class harridan is poisoned and dies.
The book is not a serious mystery, and the plot holes are occasionally large, but they're also easy to forgive because of the endearing characters and the author's ability to find the humor in every day small town life.
