    1. I have a sergeant who claims that peanut butter is a good investigative tool He says you can tell where a person is from by what they add to peanut butter sandwiches Bacon means they came from Philadelphia, bananas mean Memphis or maybe Tupelo Jelly means different places, depending on the kind of jelly Grape is Omaha, I think he said, guava is California and raspberry is Connecticut That s Mel, Jane Jeffrey s detective boyfriend, speaking This next scene takes place in the Foundation section of [...]


    2. The 4th book in the Jane Jeffry mystery series Jane decides to lend neighbor and good friend Shelley a hand with a get together of Shelley s friends an exclusive club at high school the Ewe Lambs for Shelley s high school reunion at a local BB Jane being an outsider is fascinated by the gossip and backstabbing ways of this elite club and thinks she will have good fodder for her writing Not long into their stay some pretty mean spirited pranks begin playing out and when the least popular girl in [...]


    3. Interesting, but not an overwhelming cozy I think I needed to read the previous books to get a better read on the main character, because the author has obviously taken an already established character and I just didn t get enough background to invest in the story Still, it had a nice twisty ending, so there s that.I think for this one a good idea might be to go back and read the beginning books in the series, to accurately gauge this one Three stars for now.


    4. Since I don t normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here s the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won t be reading any from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won t go out of my way to read , But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I d pick it up.4 stars I really enjoyed t [...]


    5. Jane and Shelley go back to high school and it couldn t be entertaining Am I the only one surprised when people aren t killed at high school reunions A mystery from back in the day is costing former students their lives and while the clues are there, I just could not figure this one out Hilarious and very fast paced, The Class Menagerie is one of the very best Jane Jeffry mysteries.


    6. 2017 how is Shelley s mother in law bothering her, if in the first book she s been dead for a year re reading them in a row really shows how bad editing was between books2011 A cute book, I like the team of Jane Jeffry and Shelley Novack, they are really funny together The plot was a bit weak, but enjoyable as a light read.


    7. 4 in the Jane Jeffrey series.Jane Jeffrey volunteers to help neighbor Shelley host her old girl s club at a local BB prior to her high school reunion There are pranks in the night that seem to escalate until the body of one of the girl s is found murdered It appears the girl was a blackmailer and all the others had a motive to do her in.


    8. I enjoy the Jane Jeffry mysteries so much She is so believable in her role as a common sense, multi tasking mom The light mysteries are always sprinkled with humor and are just right for a light hearted read.


    9. Easy, relaxing, and fun to read with another of her clever titles Don t expect a philosophically deep investigation of anything It s just a good read You have to wonder if any title is safe with her around to parody it


    10. This series is always good for a light mystery with a few laughs It centers on a class reunion and it just confirms my already bad opinion of reunions Ususally people try to be someone they aren t And this reunion went a step too far and ended up with one dead and one badly injured.


    11. Shelley s hosting a group of ladies from her high school girl s club Of course, one of them is killed the guests, not Jane or Shelley, and the pair are off trying to figure it out I just love the way she makes these characters both funny and believable.


    12. THE CLASS MENAGERIE GoodChurchill, Jill 4th in Jane Jeffry seriesWhen a corpse turns up during a gathering of her friend Shelley s former high school girls club, Jane Jeffry must get to the bottom of a shocking senior year scandal.Enjoyable, good.


    13. Jane and Shelley are at it again, this time with a group of Shelley s friends from high school called the Ewe Lambs Murder, food and mayhem are at the forefront of this one An enjoyable read and I like that the relationship between Mel and Jane takes another step forward.




    14. a widow with 3 kids is sleuthing in a small town she tries to solve the murder of teh Ewes who are her friend s classmates Fairly good.


    15. Jane helps friend Shirley with class reunion.They all stay at a bb and one is murdered.Lots of practical jokes.Jane also dates a cop.Good.










    16. The books is this series are always entertaining and fun YOu know she s not going to kill off the people you care about.
