Blog Tour and Review: POISON BY PUNCTUATION A Chalkboard Outlines Mystery by Kelley Kaye


High school teacher Emma Lovett is finally recovering from her first year of teaching when she discovers another dead body. As if that wasn’t bad enough, this time, someone has killed a student, Kisten Hollis.

Emma and her best friend, Leslie, are desperate to solve this murder. But suspects abound. The perpetrator could be a teacher, an administrator, a member of Kisten’s zealous church community, or even another student.

Emma must juggle her teaching responsibilities, her new romance with handsome Hunter Wells, and interest from a hunky second suitor, all while searching for evidence to bring a killer to justice before someone else dies.


Emma and Leslie, along with Hunter are determined to find out who killed Kisten and Otto is a prime suspect seeing as he's gone missing. Then there's the handsome guy trying to steal Emma's heart away from Hunter. While still looking for Otto, Emma and friends consider Dianne as another possible suspect and try to get her journal.  It gets complicated quickly with some humorous spots along with zealots and snakes. 

This story had some likable characters, some humor, and unique aspects that added unexpected twists and turns. If you like cozy mystery, give it a try. 

FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in the hopes that I would post an honest review as part of this blog tour. This has not affected the content of my review in any way.

About the Author

“Kelley Kaye” taught High School English and Drama since 1992 in California, then Colorado and now Cali again, but her love for storytelling dates back to creating captions in her high school yearbook. Maybe back to the tales she created for her Barbie and Ken—whatever the case, the love’s been around a long time. She’s married to an amazing man who cooks for her, and they have two funny and wonderful sons.
