JJ MacGregor's very bad day has just gotten a lot worse.

JJ thought starting the day without coffee was a disaster, but now there's a dead musician behind the Pismawallops High School gym. His trombone is missing, and something about the scene is off key. JJ and Police Chief Ron Karlson are determined to get to the bottom of the mystery, but will they be able to work harmoniously or will discord ruin the investigation? With the music teacher as the prime suspect, JJ could be left to conduct the band, and then Graduation might truly end in a death by trombone, or at least the murder of Pomp and Circumstance!
My Thoughts:

Poor J.J. MacGregor is having a really bad day first the coffee maker made coffee with out the pot under it then her divorce attorney informs her that her soon to be ex-husband is seeking sole custody of her son Brian, while dealing with all that she finds a duffle bag and not long after that a body whose very dead.  Was he murdered or did he just drop dead from being outside all night?

This book has things I've come to love about the series a soon to be single mother who is rising up against a crappy husband whose divorcing her but in the meantime she is trucking through her days parenting her son Brian and running the PTA and helping set up the dance for the end of the year and trying to have a good day.

I can't wait to see what Ms. Douglass comes up with next for JJ, Brian, Kitty and her family along with Ron Karlson whom JJ can't stop thinking and dreaming about!!
