Reviewed by Library Journal:  After language arts teacher Margo Brown (Why Johnny Died) and her husband discover an old gun buried in their garden, Margo cannot resist investigating. Working with clues from her husband and his ninetyish father, who remembers the 50-year-old unsolved shooting of a local landowner, plus research results from the library and reminiscences from the victim’s relatives, Margo manages to ruffle some important feathers. This intriguing puzzle is fleshed out with bucolic details of cooking, gardening, yard work, and gossip in rural Indiana. A pleasant read; for regional and larger mystery collections.

Reviewed by Publishers Weekly:  Language arts teacher Margo Brown, who tracked down the killer of one of her students in Why Johnny Died, finds herself drawn into amateur sleuthing again in Marlis Day’s Death of a Hoosier Schoolmaster, this time because she discovers an old gun buried in her garden. Believing it was used to kill the titular fellow some five decades earlier, Margo and her pal Roxie set out to find the truth behind the unsolved murder but it quickly becomes clear that the case has present-day significance.

Death of a Hoosier Schoolmaster is a fast, easy read for your summer vacation. By the way, of my five books, this is my favorite. Based on a real unsolved murder in my community, it is a mixture of suspense, mystery, and humor. You might want to try some of Margo’s summer recipes.
