Hook, Line and Stinker  by Maggie West


Teaching fifth graders might be a pain, but it’s nothing compared to clearing your name.

When grade school teacher Lily Thistle finds the body of a local womanizing garbage man washed up on the beach in her new town, she becomes suspect number one. Can this teacher turned amateur sleuth narrow down who wanted him dead and get the hot chief of police to recognize her as something other than a murder suspect?

This culinary cozy mystery includes two recipes: Rose’s Marionberry Muffins and Whiskey-laced Chocolate Chunks.

This book is a clean read.

“Hook, Line and Stinker” is a delightful novelette about a school teacher and her adventures at a new school far away from the comforts of her familiar school. She finds herself in a small town where everyone knows too much about everyone, except…….! There is mystery, romance, and comedy, something for everyone. I enjoyed Maggie West’s style of writing and weaving the story to keep the reader’s interest. I think that anyone who has faced a roomful of young students would appreciate this book. I recommend “Hook, Line and Stinker” for a relaxing and enjoyable read.

A pleasant read with a fast-paced story line and a cast of pleasant characters. Of course, I discovered who done it about the same time Lily did. And then then the book ended, so I will be looking for the next book in the Series.
