    So I have finally got around to start the Detective Inspector Carol Ashton Mystery series and I have to say that while the storyline was a little frustrating the story itself and the writing were very good. Bill, a teacher at Bellwhether High is found in the industrial arts room MURDERED!!! Positioned at a desk with the murder weapon pointing at his eye, upon further inspection the cause of death is found to be a Black and Decker to the base of the skull! Who would commit such a horrendous crime [...]

    This is a book I have had for quite a while but haven’t read it because I haven’t been able to find any of the others in the series (and I think their might be 15 or 16 others). You might think this is a strange reason, but what if I really like the first book then can’t find the rest, the frustration could be overwhelming. Having noticed in an update from Bella books that they have the some Carol Ashton books, I thought it was time to give it a go.Well I’m frustrated, because I liked th [...]

    Some time ago, I posted an article giving my opinion about why you should read the first book in a series first. One of those reasons is that the first book should be the best, despite the possibility that it might be a little raw. In another article I complained that the small sample of a book that allows you to read for free is often not enough to tell if the whole is worth paying for. Well, Lessons in Murder brings these ideas home in a big way.I read the sample of this book twice, and neith [...]

    I loved her series about the Australian private investigator in Los Angeles so I read this one as well. Somehow the main character didn't come over as good as the ones before.

    On a hot summer day at Bellwhether High School in Sydney, Australia, teacher Bill Pagett lies murdered, the hole in his head accomplished with neat efficiencyby a Black & Decker drill.Detective Inspector Carol Ashton investigates, bringing with her a formidable reputation for competence. She soon uncovers tangled relationships and motivesfor murder among the six teaching staff, along with a maze of malicious anonymous letters and threatening phone calls. And then there is yet another corpse. [...]

    The first book in a long line of great stories involving Detective Inspector Carol Ashton. This episode introduces Carol as she investigates the murder of a teacher and the prime suspect is a very attractive woman. As she investigates she not only gets close to catching the killer she also gets close with Sybil. Lines between business and personal are blurred and Carol might just be sleeping with the killer. Strong characters that are very human and fallible. You fall in love with them because t [...]

    the plot is not something to write home about, and the unveiling of the mystery proceeds rather ploddingly and without focus, but the relation between carol and sybil is great, and greatly paced. as withDeath Down Underi would have liked the book to wrap up a bit more slowly, but hey, i read this in one sitting, and enjoyed every second of it.

    Gruesome murder of a teacher in Sydney, Australia brought Det. Carol Ashton in to hunt for his killer. She was known for her formidable reputation for competence. She soon uncovers all kinds of entanglements among the teaching staff, motives, malicous telephone calls, letters and another corpse.Complicated by a flashfire attraction to Sybil Quade one of the suspectsally HOT book!Lesbians and questioning women will enjoy it.

    Freyja Vanadis
    A cross between a romance and a murder mystery. Again, the stilted formal British way of speaking is amusing and/or annoying, but otherwise it's a decent story.

    I really liked this Carol Ashton mystery. It was one of the early ones and the mystery is first rate.
