series.
Amanda Pepper, English teacher at Philly Prep, does not hate her life.

Then the police suspect her of murder, she begins her own investigation, and ends by teaching a certain blue-eyed cop a thing or two....
"Gillian Roberts is a mystery reader's dream come true."
Lia Matera

From the Publisher:

Amanda Pepper, the Philadelphia English teacher is a crack-up . . . always getting caught up in a crime. Whether she is in the classroom, on vacation, or just hanging out at home, she always finds time to solve a mystery. I like Roberts's characters (Amanda herself, her boyfriend C.K., her mother, and her friend Sasha) so much that I talked a local wholesale buyer into purchasing and distributing the Amanda Pepper series to a major retail store in Southern California. The sales results were great!
