School may be out for summer, but English teacher Emily Taylor's homework is just beginning.
Emily has been looking forward to attending Ellington High School's end-of-the-year carnival fundraiser with her new flame, Tad...that is until she finds the mayor’s body behind the English department’s Whack-a-Mole booth. Suddenly rumors are flying in their small Missouri town that the mayor’s husband was having an affair with the town’s newest dentist—and Emily’s good friend—Amelia Franklin. With her friend in the role of prime suspect, Emily begins her own investigation into the mayor’s death. But with so many of the mayor’s recent decisions being wildly unpopular—including one to end the school carnival tradition!—there is no shortage of suspects. Was itthe vocal school superintendent, the secretive new junior high math teacher, or an old high school sweetheart of the mayor's husband? With her friend’s reputation at stake and her own new relationship on the rocks Emily knows she needs to get off the crazy carnival ride her life has become and find the real killer before this summer vacation becomes her last!

"Fun, fast paced, and completely engaging! Tracy D. Comstock's new Schooled in Murder series will leave you dying for more!"
~ Gemma Halliday, New York Times bestselling mystery author
USA Today bestselling author Tracy Comstock is a small-town girl from Missouri. She lives in a home where she is outnumbered 3:1 by the males in her life: her husband and their two extremely adorable, but terrifyingly ornery sons. She has no pets as all living things, besides humans, of course, come to her house to die, including the victims in her books. All her life Tracy devoured books. Her parents' most effective punishment was grounding her from reading. Although she has a B.S. in Education and a Masters in Literature, she was nudged down the path to publication by encouraging (and sometimes threatening!) family, friends, professors, and students. When not working on Emily's adventures, Tracy is an adjunct instructor for several local colleges, where she gets to teach others about her greatest passion: writing.
