A well written cozy. Took a while to get all the characters straight. And I loved, loved, loved the ending.

Journal Entry 3 by Strude at New Westminster, British Columbia Canada on Tuesday, February 18, 2020
This read like an Agatha Christie with real people instead of cardboard cutouts. Perhaps I say that because the chief characters have almost unlimited money to which they hang pretty loose and their children also seem to have quite a lot. If traveling by train you have a private room (of course!) and take your own food (how? in a picnic hamper the way the immigrants used to?) They stay at their clubs in New York and are members and/or are on the boards of all the museums, theatres and even the private library so they have access to all sorts of private facilities. Never mind, they're interesting people and I like and admire Maggie Detweiler. If filmed I see Carol Channing as Hope (although that voice is a bit much).
No matter what kind of school it is there are inter personal disputes that can inflate into life threatening battles and Maggie even says as much from her background as head of several schools. This modern age with the anonymous posting sites and the ability to post what should be very private photos has enabled every sort of bullying and just made it more complicated to control. The school portrayal is particularly good and the actions of the girls quite believable.
