Fredrick Danysh
New PHD Sarah Deane takes on a teaching position at a girl's school during the spring semester at a girl's boarding school to fill the time until the fall when she will move to a university. The job has been arranged by her husband's cousin who also teaches there. One on the teachers is bludgened to death. Sarah and her cousin in their bumbling ways investigate the death and attemps on another teacher's life.

Louise
Actually made it through this...light and mostly pleasant.
