Amelia Prentice, a forty-something high school English teacher comfortable in her predictable routine, regains consciousness after tripping over the corpse of a former student in the safest of places, the public library. Returning to the classroom, she tries to pretend nothing happened. But when it becomes obvious that the victim’s death wasn’t an accident and she is now a murder suspect, she realizes that her cozy small-town life in New York’s Adirondack region will never be the same.   Crazy things begin to happen: The victim’s mother disappears. Amelia’s friend Lily is thrown overboard from the Lake Champlain ferryboat. A mysterious millionaire from Montreal seems determined to buy Amelia’s house. The school nurse is viciously attacked by a student. Amelia’s old beau Gil suddenly seems determined to rekindle their romance. Amelia is carjacked, and of course, there’s the Lake Champlain Monster . . .    It will take all Amelia’s wisdom, humor, and faith to figure out what’s going on and embrace the new life that lies ahead. If she survives.

I wrote the book because I needed something to read. I like Agatha Christie-style mysteries, and decided to see if I could come up with one myself. IRREGARDLESS is the result. I was fortunate to find a wonderful publisher, Sheaf House. The book has been very well received and reviewed. It's available not only in paperback, but in Nook, Kindle and at A sequel will arrive very soon, DEATH DANGLES A PARTICIPLE! Amelia goes to bat for a pair of reckless teens accused of a particularly brutal murder.

Ms. Kennedy has crafted a page turner worthy of the old masters, an exciting event, some story, another exciting event, more story. And the mystery is terrific. You want to figure out who us behind everything but you just can't seem to and so you flip another page hoping for an answer which doesn't come until the satisfactory end.--VicG, TheSuspenseZone reviewer
