Lucy Stands on Her Principal
The “Lucy” Series, Book One
Reviewed by Author Roy Murry
I found this first book in the Lucy series an enjoyable venture into the world of teaching. The detail into how a teacher navigates through the complicated day to day routine of dealing with children and the administration was intensified by a murder.
Lucy walks into the aftermath and gets involved unintentionally. Her demeanor changes from one who is introverted to an outgoing person who takes charge of her life. This conversion comes after her association with a new teacher friend and her changing love life.
The characters are well developed and move the investigation into the murder of one of their wretched cohorts forward. The ebbs and tides of the storyline keep the reader involved to the end of that endeavor.
When the reader reaches the end, he or she will be asking for another Lucy story. I think I’ll put it on my reading list.
