I am realizing that there are so many book suggestions from all of you! Here are 
just a few more, with your comments. If I've missed any of your favorites, I 
apologize, but I think everyone's bandwidth needs a break after this HIT!

PS I Love You

Trace ( the latest Patricia Cornwell)

America, by John Stewart

Harlan Coben has some great mystery stories. They're hard to put down
often end with a twist. Two I've loved are
Tell No One and Gone for Good. His latest is Just One Look.

I just discovered Jayne Ann Krentz and bought her Eclipse Bay trilogy.
three titles are Eclipse Bay, Dawn In Eclipse Bay and Summer in Eclipse

Diane Mott Davidson's mystery novels starring Goldy Schulz, owner of
Goldilocks' Catering ('where everything is just right') have
engrossing plots and excellent recipes.  Check out the author's
website for a tempting taste of
what's in store for her readers!

Jill Churchill's books (Grace and Favor series, and Jane Jeffry series)
Rita Mae Brown with Sneaky Pie Brown (a cat!) - the Mrs. Murphy
series plus she has written some singletons
and of course Sue Grafton's Alphabet series

Karen Kajewski writes the Cat Colorado books, but hasn't written a
new one in years and they are getting harder to find...set in

I have recently discovered and have enjoyed the Hannah Swensen
Mysteries by
Joanne Fluke.  Mystery and really good looking recipes for cookies,
etc.  Some of the titles are The Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder,
Shortcake Murder, etc.  There is also a website:

Since you said you had teachers with varied interests, I thought I'd
recommend an excellent mystery series I've been reading.  The books are
by Charles Todd, and are set right after the end of World War I.  The
main character, a Scotland Yard detective, returns to his job with an
ever present companion--the voice of a soldier he ordered executed for
failing to obey orders on the battlefield.  The newest one is A Cold
Treachery.  The books are wonderful for WWI buffs and fans of historical
fiction or mysteries.  And I believe Todd lives in your state, too.  It's
been a month since I read the book, so of course, all traces of it have
escaped my memory.

Thanks again, everyone, for your wonderful book suggestions. Happy summer
