I found this book after watching a 'one reeler' on TCM. The story intrigued me. It contains a series of stories about a school teacher and her 'beau' who is a police detective. Nice stories with a definite look of the 1920s/1930s in its descriptions and the 'place' of women. Comfortable easy read

Stuart Palmer (1905–1968) was an American author of mysteries. Born in Baraboo, Wisconsin, Palmer worked a number of odd jobs—including apple picking, journalism, and copywriting—before publishing his first novel, the crime drama Ace of Jades, in 1931.
