In her wildest dreams, spunky and impulsive nineteen-year-old Mary Kate Lapp never imagined herself behind a schoolteacher's desk.
A run-in (literally) with the schoolteacher compels her to act as a substitute teacher, just as her restless desire to see the world compels her to apply for a passport . . . just in case.
The only thing of interest to M.K. in the sleepy Amish community of Stoney Ridge is the unexplained death of a sheep farmer that coincided with the arrival of a mysterious young man into the community. Frustrated that no one takes the crime seriously, she takes matters into her own hands. Unfortunately, as tends to be the case for M.K., she jumps headlong into trouble.
The last book in the series and it was just as good as the first two. Suzanne has outdone herself! The Lesson has everything you could want... intrigue, romance, humor, and lots of secrets. There's addictions, illness, and other troubles. Mary Kate must take over the school against her wishes, she's more interested in solving a murder and presents clues to the local law enforcement who in turn brushes her off.
New residents are introduced in this book, Will and his sister Jenny. They have a secret and try to keep a low profile. The first meeting between Mary Kate and Will is funny, she just keeps plowing into people! Curiosity takes over and MK determines to find out what they're hiding.
A fun book with wonderful characters. 5 out of 5 stars!
