Blurb: In The Interrupted Tale, Miss Penelope Lumley receives an invitation to speak at the annual Celebrate Alumnae Knowledge Exposition (or CAKE) at the Swanburne Academy for Poor Bright Females. Optoomuchstic as ever, Penelope hopes to give her CAKE talk, see some old friends, and show off the Incorrigible children to Miss Mortimer, but instead she finds her beloved school in an uproar.
And when Penelope is asked by the Swanburne Academy board of trustees to demonstrate the academic progress of her three wolfish students so the board can judge the true worth of a Swanburne education, the future of her alma mater–and of her job as governess to the Incorrigibles–hangs in the balance.
Both of these are for older readers but Etiquette and Espionage also features a really fun and whimsical school location while Death of a Schoolgirl is a mystery in which Jane Eyre investigates a murder at a girls’ school.
