Homeschooling Can Be Murder
I received a copy of Homeschooling Can Be Murder by Susan Lyttek from NetGalley in exchange for an honest request.
Army wife and homeschooling mom, Jeanine Talbott has a busy week scheduled, so when her husband’s transfer orders come through, she decides to let him pick out the new house and move their goods while she and the kids slowly wrap up the life they've grown to love.
As she pulls up to their new residence, she discovers her darling bought a charming fixer-upper complete with rather unexpected neighbors—a graveyard full of Civil War veterans.
As the family, gets settled in Gentle Springs, Jeanine hears strange noises coming from next door. Then, James goes TDY and while he's gone, their dog escapes the yard and finds a fresh body in the cemetery. Suddenly, the Talbotts have two mysteries on their hands: who killed the treasure hunter the dog unearths, and what secret was he trying to uncover at the tomb of town hero, Captain Cooperton?
This was a really good book. Many times I find it hard to relate to Army families situation, but this book made it very easy. Jeanine Talbott is an Army wife who has to pack up and move her family every 2 - 4 years. She's finding it very hard to move from the town her and her children called home for 4 years. She's pulling what can be called just shy of a 2 year olds temper tantrum when it comes to the move. Her husband finds and buys their next house without her even laying eyes on it. What can be wrong with that? The first is that the house is next door to a graveyard. The next is when she and her children get to the new house one day before her husband leaves for training in California. Can the situation get any crazier?
