High school English teacher Skyler Foxe finally hooks up with gorgeous assistant football coach Keith Fletcher.
But is the man what he seems to be? Skyler still has his doubts when he spies Keith in some shady circumstances. And there are still some unanswered questions as to what exactly is going on at the high school. Who thought high school could be so sinister?
Meanwhile, Skyler’s friends from college have their own problems. Lovers and partners, Evan and Jeff were kicked out of the Army for Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and the depressed Evan is found dead. Suicide, says the police, but Skyler thinks otherwise. It’s Skyler Foxe on the hunt for a killer once more!
I KNEW IT! I so called that revelation right at the end that Mr. Sherman reveals to Skyler. This story picks up immediately following the end of the previous book. I’m enjoying the storyline with Rick and Alex. Those two are adorable together. I loved the scene where Alex tells Mr. Foxe he doesn’t deserve to be someone’s punching bag, that he’s better than that. Oh my gosh that was so powerful that last little bit of the scene. It showed how much of an impact Skyler has on the students. I really liked how the mystery was laid out and clues were given along the way to keep you guessing, but not so much it was given away right off the bat. I also managed to keep myself from spoiling the end before I got there. I was a bit surprised by the who and why. I had the pieces aligned a little bit differently up to that point. Skyler was a little too impulsive in this story for my liking. He was good at investigating and seeing connections in places where the police may not have. But he also stepped over the line too many times and was always left wondering why his impulsive actions left him vulnerable and in hot situations. By this point, he should know not to be so brash when dealing with potential criminals. Keith is an enigma and runs hot and cold again. But he’s seemed to have found his middle ground for the most part. I’m not a fan that the book ends in a cliffhanger again, but it does leave me wanting to know what happens next and how the rest of the mystery gets resolved that’s been ongoing through the first two books. This series truly needs to be read in order and so far all of the books are necessary since there’s pieces you don’t know by the end of the book. I’m interested to see how the last sentence revelation is effected by everything that happened right at the end.
