It’s the end of March and Trafalgar, British Columbia, is preparing for the last influx of the seasonal skiers. Teachers, parents, and students are preparing to relax at home or head off on vacation. But for high school English teacher Cathy Lindsay, the week of relaxation doesn’t work out as planned. She’s gunned down by a sniper on a hiking trail, her small dog the only witness.Cathy Lindsay is an unlikely candidate for a murderous ambush: she was a respected teacher, in an apparently solid marriage to an Internet developer, living a quiet life. Sergeant John Winters, with the help of young Constable Molly Smith, digs into the Lindsay marriage and friendships, searching for a motive, but one thought continually niggles at the back of his mind: is it possible this was not a random killing but a case of mistaken identity?

Having taken early retirement from her job as a systems analyst in the high-pressure financial world, Vicki Delaney is settling down into the rural life in bucolic Prince Edward County, Ontario.From Booklist:
Cathy Lindsay, a married high-school English teacher with two children, seems an unlikely target for a sniper’s bullet. The murder frightens people in the town of Trafalgar, British Columbia, and flummoxes Sergeant John Winters until he learns that the victim was enamored of a colleague, science teacher Mark Hamilton, an Afghanistan vet, and that her husband has a mistress in Victoria, B.C. Recognizing the potential of Constable Molly Smith, despite her occasional rookie mistakes, Winters reaches down into the ranks to include her in the investigation. Molly, meanwhile, is testing the relationship with her boyfriend, Canadian Mountie Adam Tocek, and chafing about her former-flower-child mother, widowed two years earlier. The intuitive Winters, taking advantage of a careful killer’s one mistake, finally puts an end to the puzzle in this sixth entry in the Molly Smith series, recently optioned for Canadian television. Another brisk whodunit in a beautiful western Canadian setting with an appealing protagonist in Molly, whose personal life gets as much attention as her professional one. --Michele Leber
