4 1/2 stars. Jocelyn is home in Austin preparing for the start of a new school year. One of her favorite history teachers is also the tennis coach and is known to everyone as Coach Fred. Fred has been teaching and coaching for years and is known to be loved by pretty much everyone. So when he turns up dead, everyone assumes that it is natural causes (Fred was a major smoker). But when evidence shows that Fred was murdered and that drugs might be involved, Jocelyn is determined to find the murderer and clear Fred's name of any scandal.

This was an excellent cozy. Jocelyn and her cousin Kyla are a hoot. We get to meet a whole cast of characters from the school, students, teachers and administration. We also have a new hunk in the form of an Austin detective. So much is going on but not so much you can't keep it straight. There is some action and romance. It really has just about everything. Now I have to wait for the next one.
