This is a good story and written by a terrific, imaginative writer. But the formatting is a mess with block paragraphs in the body between indented paragraphs, and there are terrible, silly spelling/comprehension errors (the word you are looking for is "conscience," not "conscious" -- the first is a noun and the second is an adjective).

The characters are engaging, the dialogue interesting and the plot not terribly obvious. I would have given more stars, if only the book had been formatted corre

I enjoyed this book very much. I didn't think I would get into a "traditional" mystery but I enjoyed how Henry kept the reader guessing. This book is fourth in a series about the protagonist, Kendra Clayton, but I have not read the first three books. However, it appears each title is a stand alone. I liked Kendra's character because she is an ordinary woman, dealing with her love life, and visiting her mother's house for dessert when something is on her mind, but what makes her story worth telli ...more
Kendra wasn't popular in High School so when she gets roped into serving on the reunion committee she is not happy about it. Member of the committee start getting strange messages and having accidents but Kendra thinks that one accident is really a murder. She has to convince others and do some investigating before she is the next victim. Pretty good mystery and it was an interesting read.

Hard to read a book based in 1997 but it has far too many references to technology that just wasn't there in 97. Like cell phones and laptops. These were not common for everyone as they are now.

Schooled In Lies is a delightful and witty modern cozy mystery. The 4th in the Kendra Clayton mystery series. Schooled in lies makes for a delightful afternoon of reading.

Going back to her high school reunion is not high on Kendra's list. This mystery has loads of drama and comedy, which will keep you turning the pages.
