No Substitute for Murder (Subbing isn't for Sissies # 1)
by Carolyn J. Rose
Divorced from a philandering con man and downsized from her job as a talk radio producer, Barbara Reed is desperate for money. She’s got a mortgage, a college loan, an aging car, and a ten-pound spoiled dog named Cheese Puff. With her unemployment checks running out, she signs on as a high school substitute teacher, stumbles across a body, is accused of murder, and learns what stress is all about.
